Yep,

It should be in two other places. One below the fan motor on the firewall. You probably can't see this one without taking the passenger fender off. The other one is directly BELOW the cowl vent panel on the PASSENGER side (this is the piece that is next to the front windshield between the front two fenders and behind the hood). This too of course is part of the firewall. You may be able to see this one by shining a flashlight through the air vents on the pasenger side. Otherwise, it only takes I believe four or five phillips screws to take the cowl vent panel off.

This link shows you a picture of where you can find the partial VIN under the cowl vent panel:

With the 67s having the tag on the door frame and easily removed, is there anywhere else to confirm if the original engine was an 8 or 6? The alternate VIN numbers don't seem to include that info.

Post the VIN and cowl tag data and I can compare them to others in our database to make sure they match.

I have noticed from looking at behind the back wheels on the inside of the quarter panels (near the sides of the gas tank) that there is a number stamped in that panel, but it is hard to make out. Could this possibly be another hidden location for the VIN # ?

slightly OT: The '67 VIN is easily removed, but it is probably obvious. The original rivets were daisy-shaped, not round.
