1979 vw conv.  Vin # on dash and on hump under the rear seat match.  Is there suppose to be one in the trunk area?  Also, the decal on the left door pillar is not readable.  What is that decal for?  Thanks Ralph

There is supposed to be one riveted at very front of the trunk. If it is missing you will probably still see the two holes in the metal. My SB was in a accident before I bought it and my VIN plate is MIA too.

Wayne, There is an oval plate at the front of the trunk.  It reads 392-455.  Nothing to do with the vin 3?  Thanks Ralph

The small stamped plate on the front lip of the spare tire holder is the trim code plate which gives you the paint and trim codes for the vehicle.  Mine too was missing when I was doing my rebuild.  With its absence I could go ahead and paint the car any colour I chose.  This could be the purpose of the 392-455 plate if it is affixed to that front lip beside the receiver for the trunk latch.
