Motor ID No.

Hello,
I am trying to transfer a title in Texas. The original title shows a Motor ID No. and a serial number. I have located the serial number on a plate near the cowl of the passenger side. The car no longer has an engine in it. My question, is there another plate or place on the car where the motor ID No. is stamped? Dept. of Motor Vehicle is saying that they only go by the motor ID No. Its been frustrating going back and forth from office to office!!
Any info will help thank you!!

The car is a 1937 Chevy Master Deluxe. It was my Grandparent's first car when they got married. The car has been sitting on my grandmother's property for over 30+ years. No motor no tranny. Needs a lot of work!! But willing to take on the challenge. I would like to transfer the title now because... well sort of a long story. I'd rather transfer now so that there are no disputes within the family.

title problems

there were some posts a couple weeks ago about Titling in Texas. I read that Texas has adopted the SEMA guidlenes laws but have not implemented them. There is a WIKI her on Hotrodders, ...hot to title a hotrod...and some info about Texas. It is best to get a title as soon as possible, you can usually get insurance and have some protection for theft recovery. I bought a 46 Chevy In Idaho and got a Title there just using the Tag on the firewall. It was easy. The sherriff deputy who did the inspection was a drag racer and called his buddy who had a similar truck asking where to find the numbers. Model T and A Fords used the engine Number for titling. One of my extra A frames has a number and one doesn't. It depended on the factory whether they stamped the frame. You might have to use bills of sale and ask for an assigned vin number. My Model A v8 roadster has been in the Family for at least 20 years, I had it titled in my name as soon as I got it. I got a letter from the DMV that someone was trying to title an A pickup using My old engine number. Somewhere along the line the DMV paperwork was not updated when the V8 was installed and the old A engine was rebuilt and now used. I have agreed to get an assigned Vin number.
