Where are all the vin numbers stamped on a 114?

Hi All.

Looking at trying to buy a 280c from an honest fellow who has had this car for 10 years as a potential parts car.

it's in running shape though, so i'm asking if i can buy it, but he has no clue where the title is and wants to go get one for me from the DMV, but he will have to show them where 2 numbers are matching, and he says only one is there, but the car did have body work before he got it and isnt sure where else he can point out a 2nd number to them...

so how many stamps are there and can he LEAD them to 2 of them is his question.

Anyone know?

Usually cars from this time frame have the VIN stamped in the top of the firewall and on one of the inner fender areas, by the shock/spring tower.

They're pretty obvious if you look closely.

There should also be a data tag on he radiator support as well.
