    Early 3000 vs BJ8 vin

    BJ8’s have the shock tower vin numbers stamped in them that help to identify them if they’re missing the firewall vin plate.

    Does the earlier 3000’s have any numbers on them in case of a vin plate missing except for the engine # plate, that the vin # can be verified?

    No, only the BJ8's had the VIN stamped on the shock tower
