Question type: General

Looking at a 1977 Ford F150 Ranger XLT in good shape, minimal rust and all original as far as I can tell. It seems to have a good title. Should'nt the VIN plate be located on the dash or just on the drivers door?

Thanks Papa. The dash VIN plate is not there as it should be but the door plate is the original that checks back to the truck with a good title. Not sure what happened to the dash plate.

Papa. I hope you dont mind me asking you a few questions. I noticed that you replied to another post inquiring about the fuel capacity of a 1977 f150 w/duel tanks. (22 gals each) Where did you find that info? I am thinking of removing the second tank and enlarging the rear tank on mine.

all 77,s came with the 22 gal tank,as for what u want to do,you can do it,will have to delite 1 FP,put a bigger psi pump in larger tank,bigest prob i see is mounting,but it can be done.

Those Ford pickup Vin plates were on the driver's door through 1979 and then in 1980 they moved them to the dash I believe.

All vehicles came with the vin on the dash & door.

I've owned probably 20 of the mid to late 70's pickups and I've never noticed a VIN on the dash...I have 7 in my yard right now....I'll go look.

I looked at a 67, 73, 75, 76, 78, 78, 79, 79 and all 8 vehicles are pickups...3 two wheel drives and the other 5 are four wheel drives and none of them has a VIN plate on the dash...I would actually like to see a picture of one if you have it...I noticed that the 67 short box 2 wheel drive has the VIN also on top of the right frame rail, like right below a passenger's butt and on the 73 4x4 and a 79 4x4 I see the VIN also stamped on the top of the right frame rail right in front of the front cab mount, right beside the right exhaust manifold. Here's my 73 that is to be purchased this coming saturday:

, worked for ford factory. 1973-79 ford trucks came with vin on doors and a sticker on the cab, a "buck" tag may be on the fire wall with the vin but not all vehicles had those, was merely a thing to show witch options to apply. Trying to educate :)

I have a 77 ford truck that my dad gave me, we have the original title, but due to it being restored and replacement parts we can not find a vin plate anywhere. now I cant get it registered. Any suggestions on where the frame stamp would be on my 77 Ford?
