Chassis and Color Code Identification Plate

Post by vinceder » Thu Dec 19, 2019 12:28

Hi everybody,

My name is Vince, I leave in PARIS and I will receive my first Mini Moke "Cagiva" 1991 in few weeks.

Can you please tell me where can I find the "Chassis Identification Plate" to find data like chassis number or initial color code ?

This is my engine compartiment to say me where it is ?

Thank you in advance for your returns.

I don’t have one myself but I know someone who does so I’ll ask him. I suspect it’ll be on the inner wing but when I find out so will you
At least can add up

The chassis number is stamped on the bulkhead as Nigel says. But you can also find it along with the paint codes on the chassis plate attached to the radiator venting slats on the right of the photo. It's been painted over with yellow paint.

The numbers are only lightly engraved so you will probably have to carefully remove the paint before you can read the number.
Should you wish, you can always contact me at M Parts

After small extract of the yellow paint over this identification plate, I find at the top of plate the complete chassi number, at the left bottom code BDT and at the right bottom code BVT.
I think that the color code is BDT as white Diamond peint code....
