Been a long time since I have looked at one.  As I recall, it is on the 
outer side of the front frame rail, hidden behind the right shock/spring 
tower.  I think you have to drop the front cross member to see it.

Subject:  Hidden VIN

Exactly where is the hidden VIN (or whatever) on a '67? I'm trying to get a 
title on a car and have encountered a DMV Inspector who is really trying to 
help me and is very sharp and taught me that the car should have "rosette" 
type rivets on the VIN plate rather than the round ones that are on this 
car. I verified that by showing him another '67 (and a '66) that do have the 
proper rivets. It is very hard to tell the difference.

Now I have to find the hidden # that he has been told is 3 digits ( I 
thought it was actually a VIN). He contacted someone who told him it was on 
the right shock tower which I think is consistent with what I have heard, 
I've never seen the # or looked for one. He was told it should be visible by 
turning the wheel but I think I've been told that you need to drop the tank.
