    Here's the deal, there is a sweet 1966 1100A 4X4 for sale locally. No data plate, but the seller has a clear title that at least matches the truck's year. My 1954 R-130 has the serial number stamped on the frame, driver's side, between the front spring shackles. The 1100A frame is clean, clear, and not a mark on it anywhere I can see on the drivers side frame. The passenger side frame member has a 4 digit stamp up near where the bumper attaches, but that's all I can find. Those four digits don't match anything on the title.

    The frame seems to be original, because the 304, tranny, and transfer case are all mounted in what appears to be a factory install. No goofy fabbed mounts, it all looks right. The axles may not be original though, the hubs aren't big-six, and the front locking hubs aren't IH.

    I've run a title check with the Texas DMV, and the serial number on the title is still registered with the current seller. So if the data plate was grabbed by someone to register another stolen vehicle, they obviously didn't register it in Texas.

    I've applied for a LST with Super Scout Specialists. It's my understanding from other posts here on BP that with the title and the LST, I can order a new data plate sticker from any light line dealer.

    Is there anything I'm missing here? Does anyone know where the serial number is on the 1966 frames?

    @kevingweq, thanks, I'll check closer in that location. I think the steering box on the truck in question may not be original, so it may obscure the number.

    My '68 has the number near that location.
    Not obscured but lightly stamped & very difficult to read.

    I'm new to all this as I'm 16 and just bought my first project international (1966 travelette 1300a 4x4). I'm applying for a title and can't find a vin. In this picture is that the entire serial number or is there more to it than just those few letters and numbers?
    Thanks!

    I can't see anything in that picture other than that is the proper location.
    I haven't looked at mine lately but IIRC, what is stamped on the frame is only the last six digits of the "VIN".
    Which as I understand it is actually a "model code/serial number" - e.g. "283208 H828959"

    Are the first 6 digits on the first portion of the "283208 H828959" what's on the block then? Sorry if this is a stupid question...

    "828959" is stamped on the frame near the steering box. That is the "chassis" serial number.
    The engine serial number (another six digits that are not part of the "model code/serial number") should be stamped on the block.
    There are no stupid questions.
    Look on the edge of the driver door near the latch for the ID plate.
    That will have what you are looking for and more.

    Thanks for the info! I wasn't sure if the engine serial number was part of the sequential serial number. This international is much more simple than I'm making it I guess.
