    Default Scout ID numbers

    I recently received a 1970 Scout 800A and am trying to find the VIN number so I can apply for a lost title. The VIN sticker on the driver side door jam has a small tare and the middle part of the VIN is missing. I have looked all over the frame and all I find was 7 alphanumeric code right in front of the front driver's side leaf spring. G416585. Anyone know what this number is or where I can find the VIN? I would think that it is stamped in metal someplace so maybe I missed it.

    Thanks.

    That number is the last 7 digits of your VIN. You've found the only other place on the frame / body that has a VIN from the factory. So depending on what part of your tag is missing, you may be able to get the whole thing. Your VIN is shorter than the current VIN's and sometimes the folks down at the DMV need to be reminded of that.

    That frame number should match your door tag if the tub wasn't swapped out at some point.

    i have the first 4 digits of the VIN on the door tag.

    My hope is that the number on the frame is referred to as the "Chassis Serial Number" on this page: http://www.superscoutspecialists.com...g-tickets.aspx

    If so, I may be able to track downt he entire VIN by ordering a line ticket, as it stands to reason that if they can look it up by either, they could find the other.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, that is the same number. They should be able to locate the LST from the number you have off of the frame. If it is legible, you will have your full VIN. I know I've been able to get one for my '69 & '74, but the '69 was tough to read.

    The one that is from the link you posted takes about 2 weeks. The following link shows others that can get you the LST as well, processing time is pretty much the same for all.

    That is great. This little Scout isn't in the best shape but I already have an attachment to it. Better yet, my wife now has an attachment to it.

    Thanks again!
