Best Answer

The VIN number can be found in a number of spots in a car. Along the door edge, on the dash, etched into the engine block. Specific cars have different locations. Call the car's manufacturer and they can tell you where to look. Don't buy a car with a missing VIN tag, especially the main one under the windshield. If you have already bought it, you may have a serious problem especially if you live in California. If you have already purchased this vehicle, contact your local County Court Clerk or DMV, for advice on what to do. You state laws will apply.
