Wb Ute v8 manual

Hi all I'm new to the group, I have a wb Ute running a 304 and Toyota supra w58 gearbox, currently trying to get a rwc on the vehicle but have struck a dilemma with identification numbers, the chassis code on the registration paper is different to the compliance plate, and the chassis number stamped in the right side rail is different again, so basically I have three different numbers, I've run an I'd check on the registration chassis code and it checks out fine, I also ran the number on the compliance plate and nothing unusual came up I'm yet to run the stamped code on the chassis, can anyone shed some light on the situation as its really starting to bug me having poured my heart and soul into the vehicle to get it up to scratch, cheers

Hi I have a WB and I can offer the following that is described in the WB series service supplement and what's in my original owners manual.
I will check against my own car for which I know the entire history and let you know if there is any departures from what the books advise to that on an actual car so theory vs reality. Looking at my rego papers there is no VIN/Chassis number recorded on the papers (SA) only Rego and Engine No and it's been that way since first registered in 1981. The original Vehicle ID certificate does state the VIN. So the owners manual states the following re Serial Numbers - VIN Drivers side dash panel - within the VIN there is the Vehicle Serial Number aka production sequence its the group of numbers before the final "B" and after LX which identifies the assembly plant, Vehicle Serial Number (Chassis No) top face of RH frame - in this number after WB will be the assembly plant serial number, Body serial Plate - Passenger side dash panel - includes body serial No and the Safety Compliance plate drivers side dash panel that also includes the vehicle serial number. Checking the actual car the stamp on the RH frame matches the number on the safety compliance plate but not the number on the VIN plate.The VIN plate matches the number on the original vehicle ID certificate. So what I conclude from this...for Registration certificate you don't need VIN/Chassis No at least not in SA. the frame and compliance plate numbers should match but not that component of the VIN plate that is also ref as the vehicle ID or production number. So comparing my car to yours...my frame and compliance match, my VIN doesn,t..if my rego papers recorded VIN - it would match with VIN plate and if it recorded chassis it would match frame, compliance plate and rego certificate...but mine is not recorded. Does it look like the compliance plate has been removed and re-attached?
