Hi Guys,
Is the chassis number engraved onto the chassis of an SE6?
If it is where would it be engraved?
All advice gratefully received.
Thanks, Emma

Just one thing to add - the reason for the areas "A" and "B" in the photo is that the number is split into two parts, from memory "A" contains the date and paint code, and "B" contains the model type and the sequential chassis number.

Thank you.

I have been and checked, very carefully, and there is no number in that location.

I guess the car is pre-mandatory stamp.

Nope, much later than mandatory stamping - scimitars were stamped from the 60s. It’s either under 40 years of crud and paint or it’s been ground off. I’d suspect the former as “Fred the stamp” wasn’t very strong so they’re quite faint sometimes. :D

My 79 6a with the later frame number sequence has the whole number stamped on the same area complete in one line but on the diagonal to fit in!
