your body numbers do not corrispond with the books. your style no is a '51 number, also the JK in the vin signifies it as a '51 Deluxe Fleetline or Styline. the Vin plate is in the drivers door jamb, front near the top, it's where the door starts to angle back. if you see 2 holes and no tag, get a refund, if it's there and corrisponds with your title Vin, it's a '52 to the gov't. An easy way to tell a '51 from a '52 is a '52 has grille teeth, a '51 has a smooth middle grille bar.

do 1 more check, and check the tail lights and parking lights for the year ( will say GUIDE then the last 2 digits of the year, 51, 52, ect... ). but it looks like you got a '51, titled as a '52, just means it had a lost title at 1 point, and sombody put down the wrong year. My '51 Fleetline is titled as a '50, makes no matter
