    Where is the body number on a South African S2 Coupe

    I have moved this to a new thread, as you can see it's not on the drivers side (RHD) upper subframe mounting and from the previous thread it's not in the water channel at the back of the bonnet (hood)

    The subframe chassis reference is usually a blue factory stamped plate not any stamping on the subframe itself.

    Certainly not there then!
    Apart from as previously suggested trying for a certificate from Lancia Classische, quite honestly I don't know where you go from here?
    But as I said, I tried to get further information from whoever it owns/runs the plant these days, this was about 10 years ago, I can't recall who it was I wrote to, but i never received a reply, perhaps that's an angle you can try.
    Sorry I can't help further, although I'll still try and find the photos.

    So there should be more than just the plate.

    On my series 1 2c Berlina, there is actually a plate with this on riveted to the top of the subframe, near the Subframe tower and horns.
    Although I have no knowledge of series 2 Berlinas.

    Subframes, gearboxes and rear axles all have riveted plates with type and serial numbers. The engine type & serial is stamped into the rear flange. But other than possibly by extraordinary chance, no two serial numbers will match either each other or the chassis number. The only numbers that match (or there's a problem) are the body stamp and the chassis plate.

    Maybe this will help.
    Stamped in the bonnet channel opposite the air intake.

    Photo off my SA built car - chassis 11 built at the Daihatsu plant.

    I maybe wrong but I'm pretty sure that is the panel part number, the chassis number is usually in the channel in front of the windscreen.
    Just found a photo of it on a bare metal shell being restored, I'll try to post it.

    No luck at present, if 'carcrank' can pm me with an email, I'll send it direct than perhaps he can post it, in the photo it is in the channel very close to the left far corner of the bonnet aperture.

    Re: Where is the body number on a South African S2 Coupe

    i don't know brian, that looks like it could be the location for the chassis number for the south african coupe based on the corresponding red i.d. plate. it's possible, and likely, that lancia didn't stamp them when they left the factory with traditional serial numbers and left that to the assembly plant in south africa to do. that way the body stamp and i.d. plate would be matching.
