It doesn't appear that anyone contributed photos of that elusive spare tire mount ID number? Kinda like a snipe, right?

Yep, No pictures. We have info on 4 locations, but nothing on the spare tire area. Or what years this may occur on or what serial number range they could encompass.
It might be nice to know when visiting DMV or proving to that one idiot that knows better than we do. :lol:
You know we have met such. :lol: :roll:
Still crazy after all these years.

There "were" a couple pictures on here from several years ago when this first came up but I would doubt they are still around thanks to photobucket. There are very few people that subscribe to that location theory. I believe it may have just been a deal where someone on the assembly line stamped the body in front of them. Just a way of identifying a body they personally did. There are just not enough examples of them and no pattern whatsoever. In the pics I saw the numbers were stamped haphazardly and not in a semi neat line, like someone did it in a hurry. There are a few people who are going to swear that it is a legit way of id'ing the vehicle but they are ones who originally came up with this. My answer is this, show me a pattern, show me a definite grouping of vehicles that covers a definite time period in sequence. Then I will believe it. I don't think there have been more than ten or fifteen documented cases. And no pattern to them.

Sorry gentlemen
I've been off the site, I have the picture of the number I found on the spare tire mount, 26682. If Rick or some would email me at malonecsm@yahoo.com I will respond with the photos attached as I can't seems to upload from this site.
