My friend wants to register his cloud II but the RTA cant find the location of the chassis number. They want to see the number actually stamped on the body or chassis.
Where should we be looking for this?
Thanks
Omar

Hello Omar,

I presume the location of the chassis numbers is the same as on a Cloud 1. There should be an alloy plate engraved with the chassis number riveted to the firewall in the engine bay. The number is also stamped into plates welded on the top of both sides of the main chassis rails approximately in line with the front face of the starter motor. If the chassis is particularly dirty, it may have to be scraped clean to reveal the number. The photograph of our chassis rail was taken before restoration, the firewall chassis plate after!

Hope this helps.





Kind regards,

Chris

Dear Chris,
Thanks a million mate.
The chassis plate on the firewall is in someone's trophy chest and that is why we need to find the stamping location.
You have very kindly led me there.
I am grateful to you.
the Cloud II has a V8 and your Cloud I has a six. I assume the location you refer to are the two straight legs that run parallel in the engine bay and that the stampings are on the top of each of those rails.

Thanks
Omar

Hello Omar,

Yes, that is correct. On a Cloud 1, there is a starter solenoid fixed to a bracket on top of the left chassis rail (left when viewed from the drivers seat)close to the starter motor on a right hand drive car. The chassis number plate is welded to the top surface of the chassis rail just in front of this bracket. On a Cloud 1, there is an identical plate welded to the top of the right hand chassis rail. They might be difficult to see on a Cloud 2 as the V8 takes up much more space but I am fairly sure that the plates will be where I have described.

Kind regards,

Chris
