matching vehicle numbers????
« on: December 25, 2015, 08:06:31 AM »
1950 170S

The data plate on the fire wall is 13604014661
The chassis tag is the same
The engine tag reads: 13692214711

Is the engine the original engine????

Probably. The serial numbers for both the chassis number and engine number are close. They aren't likely to match on a postwar car. 14661 and 14711. You can get the data sheet from the Classic Center. Did these numbers have /50 at the end

Thanks,
No, no 50 after the numbers, except on the fire wall data plate separately it says 1950

I found some more numbers:
one next to battery box on drivers side 13308 and one on the top of the passengers side battery box 3326

???Classic Center???? what is that and where and how do I contact them????
