Anyone know where the vin or serial number is on a 1903 Model A. The MTFCA Museum is going to display one on loan for a while and the owners want to know what the serial number is.
I could not find anything on the Interweb.
KD might know.

I hope you are not reading while driving/hauling, but i think you missed the year (1903) in the original question.
No harm done. 8>)
apparently on the face of the Flywheel for the earliest examples
and the number was stamped on the original coil box too
I did a google search & came back with that originally - posted it before I read all the way thru - then removed it.
Today is my day off - I am in beautiful Muldrow, Oklahoma.
Pate's Early Ford Encyclopedia says that the Ford "number of the machine" is stamped on the rim of the engine's flywheel.
Suppliers of parts to Ford may have stamped their own, different numbers on some parts. For instance, the Dodge Brothers may have stamped a number on the engine support frame, and Wilson may have placed a number on the bodies.

Body number is on a wood riser beside the on off switch.
Sometimes hard to see under years of paint.
Engine number is on face of flywheel.
It is on the flywheel, a friend of mine showed the serial number of his on the flywheel. That is also where the timing marks are. Very neat to see! Mike
Thanks guys, I will pass it on.
