I need help - it was discovered that the chassis number of the plate in the bus does not match the Government file records - someone dyslexic has put the numbers around the wrong way and I have to find the number stamped on the bus chassis to prove it. Where to look ? - lots of greasy, oily looking chassis to look at - where would be the obvious place?

I am getting very despondent- I have scraped nearly all the chassis of my Ford Clipper 1966 RO226 and have yet to find any Chassis number stamped on it. Are there any old Ford bus owners out there that can confirm/deny that there should be a stamp on the chassis?
I have been talking to some vintage enthusiasts who say the only identification may have been the aluminium plate (which is now screwed to the inside wall of the bus) and there may not have been numbers stamped on the actual chassis in 1966 .
Any assistance or opinions would be appreciated..

Did you find your chassis number? I assume that your bus is similar to this magnificent rig?

Not sure why this thread was still in "GPS Files"
Might get more attention here.

Had the same problem with my 1986 Rosa a few years ago.
Got the problem sorted by getting an engineer to stamp the correct numbers of the chassis member in the location already suggested.
All good :-)
