Post need some advice

a buddy of mine found what was left of a very old car. its basically just a frame an engine and a rear end. he's almost positive its a ford, cuz his late dad only bought ford. he said it looks like its from the 30's or 40's. is their any way to find out what kind of car it is? we could run the numbers off of the motor but that doesnt' really prove much. anybody got any ideas?

look on the fire wall for the cowl tag you will get a lot from that most of them were right at the top so there easy to see. also look around for different tags and labels.(ie fisher for gm bodies) you might get company names to research from there.

What does he plan to do with it? I hate to see wasted effort, unless this is just curiosity.
