How to find your Bronco's Vehicle Identification Number
admin
05/17/06
The VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is a unique number assigned to each vehicle. It's what Motor Vehicle Departments use to license and track vehicles. When you go for emissions, transfer title or move to a new state the inspector will probably look for your VIN. Since they may or may not know Broncos very well it's smart for you to know the various locations so you can point them in the right direction.
Location #1 - Your glove box door. It will be stamped (along with other info) on a metal tag that's riveted to the inside face of your glove box door. Since it's very easy to remove the door, this is often lost or even swapped with another truck. A smart inspector will look for the more permanent locations.

Location #2 - On later models the VIN is on a laminated paper tag adhered to the driver's side door post. (not the door itself, but the jamb)

Location #3 - Stamped into the top of the frame, on the passenger's side, right below the firewall. You can see it from the engine bay, but it can be hard. You'll probably need to wire brush off years of grime and/or rust to see it. Rubbing some chalk on the area helps too.

Location #4 - On early years (66-67) the VIN is on the driver's side kick panel.

If you are sitting on the drivers seat it is the panel by your feet, to the left of the pedals.

The vin is on the inside of the glove box door. The other is on the frame on the passenger side, look straight down the firewall to the frame and thats were its located.

Question: most of the sticker has been removed from the drivers side door post, is it possible to get this replaced if you have the proper paperwork?

I have a 1974 without a glove box door, am I screwed?

I have a 69 with the glove box door, and could swap over my nice 74 body and make a decent rig out of the two, but didn't want to go to all that hassle, but I just found out that I needed that glove box door to even register my rig in Ca allegedly, and would get it impounded? If I tried without it!!! I was told, but the CHP said differently, they said I had to register to bring it in=2month wait time, then flatbed the sucker in and get it verified-if right-then get paperwork on the 74 then I can do whatever I want, but still have no glove box! I guess it really is just a parts truck now-legal or not! Man this sucks, wish I had known this when purchasing it! So what does a nice paperless parts truck go for versus a papered one?

Title needs to match the vin on the frame.........the warranty badge with the vin and other info in the glove box is just info. Go to Marti . com and get a replacement warranty badge for your glove box, they even sell the correct rivets.
