Mr. Tom,

That is correct, it faces outboard so you can read it just by kneeing down. It is only welded with very thin vertical beads at the leading and trailing edge and the plate is not much larger than a drivers license. The fact that they painted over it was very clever so as to hide it! (thieves, etc.) Scraping the paint off (or using paint remover) between those welds reveals the data plate...

Both of the other CTs at the rally had them but their owners were also
unaware they were there until we looked together...

So is that 12" space on the inside of the frame rail where I should be looking? If so there is nothing there, the paint is so thin it wouldn't hide a plate or welds.
Mr. Bob,
Just by kneeling down, in front of the rear bumper and behind the left wheel well,you should be able to see that flat vertical frame section you described and then see two thin vertical weld beads about 2" long and about 3 1/2 ' apart that are located about 2" aft of where the outer curved tubular frame section is welded to that interior section (angle iron) you described. If it's not there, maybe they did this later in the production run or at one of the
production sites but not at another?

I have a plate there that says "not uhaul property" however, it appears to be welded over top of another plate.

I looked again, no plate, and no evidence that there ever was one!

Sorry it was not there as I know you would have liked to have it instead of
having to make one...

We must have an early '84, Don when we get to Florida you can come look, and yes I would have liked to have it. But what I like the most is how everyone here shares information and knowledge, that makes this a great site!!

I noticed that they are down to the last three windows and two are missing a handle and one is missing a piece of glass. Last chance!

I was wondering if the supply was going to run out! Probably they are all right side windows?

Mr. Tom,

Thanks for posting those pics. That is exactly the plate and location but it apparently your numbers were not stamped on it like the others I have seen.

Here is the plate on my #2 unrestored CT. Note the VIN at top and
date of man. below...appears they may have decided to start stamping the numbers on that plate a little later in production , before it was welded on, as the numbers are definitely hand stamped.

got around to cleaning it off with a wire brush on a drill and indeed it is SS but the VIN numbers are different than the sticker only the last 6 agree. photos attached
