I'm trying to find all the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) locations on a 1929 - 1931 Chevy 1 1/2 Ton Truck. I have the title with a VIN number on it but have yet to locate the matching number on the truck. I found the engine number and there is a plate on the passenger side seat base with a number on it, but they don't match the number on the title. I see on the firewall (passenger side, engine side) where there are some small holes that could have held a plate (found that hint in another thread). Any other places I can look? I'm in Ohio and they like things all nice and tidy when a title comes from another state. So far this one isn't. The engine serial number, seat plate number and general apperance point to this being a 1929 but the title has it as a 1931.

The number on the title is 3LT10948. The number on the seat base is 3LQ 7871. The engine number is 1411676.

So Chevy didn't stamp the number on the frame someplace or anything like that?

No.

An "LT" is a 1931 truck and an "LQ" is a 1929 truck. Your engine number of 1411676 is for a 1930 engine. By the way, according to the serial number your truck was made in St. Louis.

Sounds like you have a little bit of everything there.

"21" indicates that your truck was built in the Janesville, Wisconsin factory.

For the time being get a reproduction body tag and stamp it with the number that is on the title and put it on the cowl where the holes are,my 37s tag was screwed on so you wont need the special rivets like the late models have. It looks like someone accidently gave you the wrong title or you can get someone in a bill of sale state to register it for you with the correct numbers.
