Ferrari will give me a heritage certificate for my car. I need to give them some information about my beast. The VIN is easy but where do I find the “number of engine”, “number of gearbox”, and “chassis number”. I think the “type of engine” is a V-12 and the “type of gearbox” is a six speed manual.

Inside the door sill?

Wouldnt it be in your service documents as well?


How about on the side of the engine?


For instance:

Type of engine in my BMW is an M50 6cyl/non vanos.
The VIN is on a sticker inside the door sill, this is also known as the chassis number...


The idea is that if your car gets rebirthed, the engine number and VIN/Chassis number wont match the car manufacturer's records.

Bart, The first chapter (pages 1.4-1.9) of your owners manual will have instructions on where to find most of the ID plates. Additionally, the chassis number should be identical to the last 6 digits in your VIN and the engine number should be written on the first page of the service manual. Good luck.

Bart, you'll possibly have to get under the car to spot the gearbox # (it's stamped on the lower part of the G/B on the 3x8 cars). The handbook will show your location. The "type" of engine & gearbox is likely to be the type "code", (eg engine for 3.2 Mondial = "F105C") that is stamped on one or more of the ID plates somewhere.

chassis number is the last 6 numbers of the VIN, the engine number can be found on the warranty card. I have no idea about the others

The're all stamped on the engine block and gearbox casing. Different models ahve different places. You have to use a torchlight and look for them. :D
