Not a 1934 pickup but...

Does anyone happen to know where the VIN number is located on a 1934 Ford car ?

The VIN number is the engine number on older Fords.

Hey Dennis, nice to see you again.

I would think that the vin # is in the same place on cars as they were on trucks since they used many of the same frame setups. The VIN should be on the upper rail of the frame, to the front, about 10" to 12" from the very front of the frame. Also, they use to put the # on the top side of the tranny housing.

The numbers weren't stamped that deep, so it took me sandblasting the frame in order to find the VIN #.

Good luck with your project.

Well hi. It has been awhile, hasn't it?

A friend of mine bought the truck. He was asking me about it and although I didn't have the VIN info, I knew where I could get an answer.

The vehicle is in pieces. He said the only number he could find is located on the back of the frame and isn't even close to the number on the title. Looks like he has a mess to figure out.

Does your friend have the original title? If so, he may want to keep it, we did.

We went to the DMV and picked up a form to trace the numbers straight off the frame and had it notorized. The options were for it to be done in the presence of either a notory, a police officer or a licensed dealer. Then we took this form along with a bill of sale proving our ownership to the DMV and about a month later, had our new title.

You might want to have your friend begin with a trip to the DMV and ask about getting a title as if the truck/car had never been titled before.

Ya. he has a title. He lives in Oregon, has a Washington title and the title is stamped, "Transferred From Idaho".

In our state, vehicles such as his, have to be inspected by the state police prior to going to DMV. His concern is that he spents the time and money to restore the vehicle and then runs into problems getting the title transfered. My suggestion was to locate all the numbers he could find and have the numbers checked through NCIC, to make sure they aren't stolen. Once the numbers are all clear, he shouldn't have a problem getting a new VIN number issued.
