Why do they call it 53-79 F series steering and suspension when it also covers 48+ F1's?

Seams confusing to me

OK, need some help here. I have a 1949 F1 1/2 ton that I bought a few years ago out of Texas with a Florida title. I applied for and got a new title and registration and plates via mail in my home state of Michigan.

All is well, except I have a home in Nevada now and would like to move the truck to a Nevada title. Nevada will not honor the Michigan title as proof of VIN, they want to inspect the truck's VIN to confirm. Now the problem; I can not find the VIN anywhere on this truck. The VIN plate on the firewall is a flat black plate. the glove box has the plate removed. The truck has a Nova subframe that joins near the firewall. Where else might I find the VIN stamped?

The VIN on the title is 98PTH397604. There are some digits stamped into the firewall near the blank vin plate. These are; 9 9J1013.

Anyone that can help me figure out how to confirm the VIN?

Thanks,

Walt

Getting a Title

Thanks, but using the suggest process in Nevada, my truck would get an "assigned" VIN number and be titled as a 2011 Ford and be subject to an annual emission inspection, which it would fail, as the engine is a 1992 Mustang 5.0L that has been converted to carburetion without cats.

I want to title it as a 1949 F-1, so I really need to find the serial number on my cab or frame.

Ok mabe this site will help with your Vin number issue. Here
I too have a F1, mine is a '48.
I only know of the black panel on the fire wall on the passenger side and in the glove box on the door. As for the frame numbers I am not sure of.
Seems to me that you have some extra digits in your vin mine has 9 digits, yours seems to have two more.
the rest is explained on the web page linked to.
Good luck

So I take it your house is in either Washoe or Clark county? Any other county has no emissions inspections. I didn't look at the date of your post, but Nev went to OBD11 emission (check engine light) inspections for '96 and newer along about '03. So the first thing a smog tech will do/is supposed to do is fail you and send you to the emissions lab for a waiver because you ain't gots no OBD11 port. And you sure as heck ain't gots no check engine light
I was a smog tech in the Reno/Sparks area for most of the ten years I lived there. Hope that helps
