Vin plate i.d???

Post by tonenee50 »

Hi all new to this forum,
How do I tell if my splitscreen is a SO42?
Its a 1967 USA import. On the plate on the top of the roof (inside) it has typ 23-42
Number is 237113954.
It also has another plate behind the passenger seat. 19 4
Then 430 842 025 056 097 108
Then UT 2312 523907 7113954. It was shipped with no interior. Has bulkhead so you cant walkthough. slated windows.
Any help would be great.
