Unfortunately, my '51 B3B was missing the VIN plate on the A pillar of the driver door so I need to order a reproduction tag. I want to make sure the correct data gets embossed onto the tag. Other than the serial number, can someone verify that these numbers are correct for the B3B? Model: B-3-B-108 Gross Vehicle Weight: 4850 lbs Certified Net Horse Power: 86 @ 3600 RPM Certified Gross Horse Power: 97 @ 3600 RPM Here's another interesting historical fact I've noticed from VIN plate examples I've seen online; it looks like the B1B and B2B plates leave out Gross Horse Power and only include Net HP. But the later B3B and B4B model VIN plates included both ratings. This is only "important" to someone in my situation who needs to replace the correct style of VIN tag.
Do any of you all's titles give the original title date? My Oklahoma title for my Evansville 46 Special De Luxe, SN 20182030, gives November 4, 1946 as the "date first sold". I'm curious if anyone has a 46 Evansville De Luxe for which the title gives that information. My brother used to have the shell of one of these (it had been used as river bank erosion control), and its SN was 22046700, with the SN plate on the right A pillar, like the 42's. (It was already missing the front clip, both rear fenders, and nearly all of the interior, so I thought at first that it was a 42 model.) I do have some random parts from it, and there are differences between parts from that car and my Evansville 46 Special De Luxe. I know that there were various differences between the two models, but one difference that surprises me is that the Special De Luxe interior light lens is secured in the light bezel via rolled "clips" in the inside of the bezel, while the De Luxe lens was leaded in. It is not a later repair, either, because the lens bezel does not have any remnant of the rolled clips. Maybe my Special De Luxe was just built a lot later than the De Luxe, so if there is any comparative information on that, I would also find that interesting, especially I've never seen another P15 with the SN plate on the Right A pillar. It would also be interesting to compare original sale dates with anyone who has that information for their Evansville 46, especially if it has an SN close to mine, and was sold at some location perhaps much closer to Evansville (as opposed to relatively far-away Oklahoma). Unfortunately I don't know in what part of Oklahoma my car was originally sold, and it is possible that if a car was ever re-titled in another state, that this information would not be carried over. I know that I'll have to surrender my Oklahoma title when I title the car here in Ohio, and I don't know if they will include this information on the new title. I just think it is an interesting bit of information to know.
Hi Everybody, today I checked my engine number and the number is D34-323118. Because the car is a 42 Dodge Custom Coupe, engine nr. should start with a D22-... As far as I know, the engine was never swaped, but I think this is wrong. Are there any differences between the two engines were I can see if it's a 42 or a 1950 engine? Are all parts interchangeable? Thank you in advance Kai
Hey Guys I need your help. I've got a D-42 engine sitting in my 51 Willys pickup that appears to be in great shape (all parts and pieces are there and turns freely). I'd like to get her fired off and be able to order parts for her if/when needed. My delima is that I can't seem to find any serial number listings for this engine. The Serial Number on the engine block is: D42-37III4. Yep, that's correct - 3 7 capital I, captial I, capital I, 4. These are not overstrikes, they are the actual, original stamped letters within this serial number. Am I looking at an Industrial engine??? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'll get a photo up soon or can email to anyone that wants to see it for reference. THANKS ALL! Respectfully, Bobby Major, U.S. Army
