The title says it all. The nickel plated Torpedo I mention in another thread has the I.D. plate on the dash with a number 125400. The engine however is 135XXX, (can't recall all the digits). I assumed it was a replaced engine but, when reading the posting concerning another '12, it appears his numbers don't match either. Should they?
NO.they don't match
That is correct for the USA cars they stopped agreeing on/about OCT 6 Acc. 509, Letter, Ford Archives :
Motor and body numbers not to agree in the future ref:
The Canadian engine and ID number stamped into the data plate continued to agree well past that date.
Anyone know if the UK cars continued past that date?
Hap l9l5 cut off
The engine number should be ten thousand or so higher than the dash patent plate number, representing chassis and spare engine sales.
