Chassis number on military 2A

I have an ex-Canadian military 2A 109, no number plate on the bulkhead, can't find the chassis number above any of the spring hangers. What other locations could it be in? Could be that it has rusted over been patched over, what then?

not sure if it's the same on the military series but on the other 2a's its on the right front spring hanger about 3 inches above the bolt. Try cleaning it really well with a wire brush on a grinder

Thanks, I did that today, I used a large grinder with a wire brush down to the bare metal everywhere I thought a chassis number could be. About two feet all around all four spring perches, and motor mounts. And found nothing.

Both my 2a and s3 ex mods had them on the seat box. I never looked for it on the frame.

You have posted a photo of an unmodified military chassis. That section that looks like a repair piece is actually a factory installed piece on the military chassis that provides the extended spring hanger with the two spring mounting locations. I have the same on my 109 SW.
You have cleaned off the frame horn looking for the number. You are in the wrong spot!!!!! (Bang head against wall.)
Spring Hanger is where you want to be. About four inches below and forward of where you've been cleaning. Just about the area that looks a bit yellow in the photo. In fact a bit above that. When I look closely at your photo there are two spots that look like they might have numbers stamped. The one just above the yellow area and another between your cleaned off area and the point of metal on the right (bumper bracket?).

If there was an identity plate on the seat box, it is mounted on the side of the box, staring you in the face when you open the drivers door. There should also be one on the passengers side of the bulkhead at the parcel shelf. Stares the passenger straight in the face when you don't have the "glove box" full of stuff. Look for a set of four drilled holes where one might have been removed.
