Do you mean the firewall tag (cowl tag)?

The VIN tag is in the door jamb.

There are repro cowl tag rivets available from many of the restoration places. VIN tag rivets is a whole different story, those are tough.

Those do look like they would work. His listing stops at '55 models but I can't see why not.

I took a look and realized that we are not looking under the hood of a Beaumont, it is an Acadian. That changes things as to placement. See below for a basically correct 1966 Acadian engine compartment (air cleaner decal should be tossed in favor of a pair of black & gold valve cover decals, plus add the missing finger guard).

Whoops, sorry, yes, I assumed it was the avatar car...

And yes, that looks to be right for an X body car of that era.

Lets see, this is posted in the pre-1958 section, the owner didn't state what car it was for, but his avatar is a 67 Beaumont, and the photo's he's posted looks like an Acadian or Nova.

I wish people would be a little more clear on what car they're talking about when they're asking for help.
