Located on the bottom of the case toward the front. No need to remove anything but maybe some oil and road dirt.

There will actually be 3 sets of numbers. For a C 741/2c if USA also a build date 12/3 would be December 63 then the actual trans number maybe 5 digits. You can see then on this 64 in the photos: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1964- ... c-coupe-5/

Thanks for the clarification, Doug. I over-simplified.
