Vin Number Visable Through Windshield

Recommended Posts

I just had a new windshield put on my LS, but now I can't see the VIN from the outside. There's some tape or something covering it. My dealer says that's fine, even a good thing. This way, he says, theives can't copy the VIN and order keys to steal my car.

I think that this is cr#p, but I'm not sure about the legality.

Anyone out there know?

Thanks,

Hank

I don't see where that would necessarily be a legal requirement.

Many many older vehicles don't have them visible at all. (my '69 Chevy

pickup and 40 Chevy street rod). In many states, the vehicle ID was the

engine serial #, sure ruined things when folks started swapping engines.

After that, it wasn't standardized until the late 70's or 80's (I think).

Only person it'll *BLEEP* off is the tow truck driver trying to tow/repo your ride! Don't worry about it.
