This thread made me curious, as my 90 is one of the early '94's (#48).

What I found made me laugh.

They stamped *SALLV228...* but realized their mistake, etched off the second L and put *D* underneath.

Crazy Nigel, crazy.

That is what Mike will find on LRNA1. It is always Nigel's fault.

For reference, all three VINs on 282/500 match.

just found another one

We just got in a 94 NAS 90 that has a mistake on the kick panel compliance sticker. The check digit [9th] is different than the one on the windshield vin, on the frame, and all the paperwork. Not much of a surprise really , as the vehicle is one of the LRNA Prototypes.

Can't really blame Nigel on this one. I am pretty sure LRNA made and installed this decal, not Solihull.

We can only assume that this has something to do with them being built by SVO. Once we saw the first one we went around the lot and found others. The chassis VINs start and end the same as the dash and T support decal VIN, but the middle is different. Example: SALDH1286PA918030 (appears on the dash and door opening) SALLDHMM8KA918030 (appears on the chassis)
beautiful. Nice find. This should help the case

Mike, I'm glad to hear you see this a lot. I wasn't really worried given the past history of my 110 (Second owner had it since '94 or '95) until I bought it, but I too noticed that the VIN on my chassis was slightly different from the others!

Pendy and I discussed this a while back and he was surprised, I sent him pictures and we both were unsure what to make of it, but had no doubt that the truck was as it came from the factory...

Missed this thread the first time around

Yes, I just checked the numbers on # 55 of 500 and found:

Frame: SALLDHMM8KA917977

Door Frame: SALDH1288PA17977
Dashplate: SALDH1288PA17977

It is really different than the "true" VIN.

Funny... "KA" is 1993 is ROW/UK trucks, "PA" is 1993 in NAS trucks.

Yes, very common on the early NAS 110. The later ones seem to have the frame VIN the same as the decal and cowl tag.
It is "normal" (normal as far as Rover goes). We just had NAS #6 here and it was the same way.
It isn't a worry as Land Rover did it. We just wanted the information out there so that potential buyers down the road didn't think all these NAS 110s had frame swaps or something fishy about them.

Upon a closer examination of our recent acquisition, , the frame number is also slightly incorrect. Again, no big surprise there.
