VIN/chassis number of W111 4 door sedan

I am engaged in a transaction to sell my W111. The prospective buyer is insisting to see the VIN # embossed on the chassis/body. I could only locate a plate on the left side of the hood lock.

Please I would appreciate if someone could share with me a photo to help exactly where in the engine bay this is to be found.

Hope someone will respond soon or I will lose my sale!

The VIN does not seem to appear at the same location as on current cars. Did you try what google offers, like this:

Try removing the air cleaner,then on the right hand Front leg,in front of the axle mount point where it points down ,approx. close to the generator/alternator ,get a peice of sand paper and rub the outer edge of the chassis rail. it's there but after 40 years they tend to get covered in paint grease rust and other stuff.
