    So I finally am going to start my 72 ground up restoration I was wondering about the vin locations I know about the dash. Anywhere else I'm asking because I have two and a half rancheros that I will be making one with a coyote motor in it.

    I may sound green to this but the whole vin locations is new to me can you show me a picture or even point me in the direction of the rear one. I just don't want to cut out rusted panels and Accidentally cut out the rear one. I have some panels to replace and fix. Mabe bed to.

    Thank you so much. Any on the frame? I can't believe I am finally going to start my project after five years of collecting extra parts and motor combinations I went from a 5.4 triton to a coyote 6 speed.
