Thumbs up VIN and engine number

Hi Marcello,

'57 Olds 98 is my favourite. I also bought '57 Holiday 98 earlier this year.
'57 car serial number plate is located on the left front door pillar as you
said. The body and style numbers are stamped on a plate wich is located
under the hood on the cowl near the right hood hinge. Is there any other
plates? I don't think so. Your's 98 was made in Lansing, Michigan in 1957.
The engine serial number is stamped on a machine pad on the top of the left cylinder bank between the center and rear exhaust manifold ports.

- Mika

should be in the lower left hand corner of the windshield.

Engine VIN is above the # 1 spark plug on 68 and up, don't know about earlier than that.

Here's a pic It's on the left side of the motor
