    Default My Reproduction Vin Sticker

    So I'm rebuilding my 79 CJ-5, and over the last 28 years, the dash-mounted vin sticker has chipped and all but washed away. There was part of it left, and from taking pictures of that and also searching for pictures of late 70's Jeep vin stickers on the internet, I decided to create a new one. I made it in Adobe Illustrator on my Mac and when I print it out on glossy paper, it looks almost identical to my old original one. The only change I made was keeping the AMC logo color instead of grey/white like my original. Anyway, I'll attach a picture. Let me know what you think or if I'm missing something that should be on a Canadian-made 1979 Jeep CJ-5 vin sticker.

    Nice! Never seen a VIN sticker from a Canadian Jeep before.

    Looks good. It being a Canadian JEEP would the MAX speed be in KM's or was the JEEP built in Canada for the US?

    Yes, the Jeeps made in the Brampton plant were still good old American Motors Jeeps, they were just assembled in Canada. But everything is identical to a Jeep assembled in Toledo, except the vin sticker says "American Motors (Canada)". That's the only difference. I'm not sure if Jeeps destined for Canada had km/h speedos but mine is in mph.

    do you mind some of us using the image and replacing the VIN/other info as needed ourselves to help replace ours that are barely readable as well? That looks amazing!

    Thanks everyone. Feel free to use it as a guide for making your own reproduction. I made mine to look identical to my 79 sticker, but I've seen a 78 dash sticker that looked a little different, so I can't guarantee all late 70's-early 80's CJs look like this one. I got frustrated because I couldn't find reproduction vin stickers for AMC Jeeps anywhere, so I made my own. But I'm happy to share with other fellow Jeepers!

    SWEET! I just painted my 79 CJ-5 with an intact vin sticker. I Pulled the painter's tape off the vin, and Voila! - Vin sticker came off with the tape. wot a disappointment. Do you mind if I use? How can I change numbers if I do?
