Need to know how to find vin #'s on 1915 touring car with out original engine.
Charles, the only was to find a Model T VIN is by the stamped number just above the water inlet on the left side of the engine. If the engine isn't original to the car, it should still have a stamped number. But sometimes a number isn't stamped when the engine is replaced. So it might be blank. Then get a set of number stamps of the correct height and stamp a number that's appropriate for the 1915 model year and have it inspected by your state's authorities.
I had a 15 Roadster that was titled using the body number stamped under the seat - seems the DOT required the number not to be the same as the engine in whatever state it was titled in the 90's before I bought it. I've also heard of states issuing a new number that would then need to be stamped on the frame or a tag that needed to be riveted on... Each state is different it seems.
Yes, the rules vary from state to state. I expect Oklahoma probably has a website where you can find out about yours, then you can figure out what to do about them.
I had known that Utah wanted to see a plate stamped with the engine #; so I got a reproduction plate from one of the many vendors and stamped the # with stamps from Harbor Freight. The engine # and the plate match. I put it on the firewall. It was so much easier to get my nod from the police inspection than I thought. The police like to see a metal plate with the #'s on it. Go figure.
Charles, Stamp the # that is on your title on the plate. other than that I do not know if it is anywhere else on the car. I have a 1916 and had the frame stripped to bare metal and saw no #'s.. I have a Model A that I replaced the engine in and Utah has no clue how to change the title; so I stamped the old block #, which is the same as the title in the frame under the front running board.
can you buy stamps with the proper font?
