1951 pontiac

im trying to sort the paperwork on my 1951 pontiac chieftain, here in uk. Ive found the vin ok, but have a different number on some paperwork. Could that be data plate/ cowl plate/ body tags numbers?

Many states used the engine number to register the cars prior to 1955. The "serial number" should be located in the left door jamb... that is what you should use to register the car. But I wouldn't "rock the boat"... you KNOW how bureaucrats are...

VIN#'s came about in 1969....

I'd check in at Antique Automobile Club of America and visit the Pontiac forum...

The Chevy will have the original automobile serial # on a pad on the front of the engine under the cyl head... but it won't apply to any title work.
