Just out of curiosity, did Ford put numbers on their bodies? I found my frame number, and I know where the engine number should be (I have been told my engine is a replacement as it doesn't have a number), so if there is a body number, where would it be? I have the standard cab on my truck.

Thanks in advance.

There will be no vin number on the body. Frame only and engine.

Grant,

The short answer for a 1927 is "NO" Ford USA did not put a number on the body indicating what style body or who made the body.

However, a few of the Ford USA and all the Canadian and the one Australian Ford assembly plant did put an Assembly Plant number on the bodies starting around 1926. So a 1927 Canadian or Australian produced T or TT usually has an Assembly Plant number. Unfortunately the USA did not really adopt the process of stamping an assembly plant number onto the body until the introduction of the Model A Ford in late 1927 for the 1928 model year.

Please see the posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/599638/606793.html?1461808340 for further information on where to look. Remember -- so far I have only relieved an Assembly Plant number for a few late USA produced Model T's. So it was not that common for the T.

If you want information on numbers that the body suppliers stamped onto the 1906-1923 bodies please see the posting “Home for the Holidays” at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/40322.html

And if you or anyone else locates some body manufacture's numbers (1906-1923 -- possibly later for any body supplied by an outside body maker) or Assembly Plant numbers, please let me know. A posting could work -- but sometimes I miss those. A private message through the forum usually works or click on my name at the beginning of this posting and it brings up my profile. My e-mail is the 3rd line down.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
