1951 Pontiac Fleetleader Deluxe VIN and Parts Inquiry

Hi all,

 I made this same post in the Chassis forum but figured it might get a few more hits here.


I just recently purchased a 1951 Pontiac Fleetleader Deluxe (seen in the profile picture). After searching for details about the car I came upon this forum and noticed it was a wealth of information for Canadian Pontiacs. There doesn't seem to be too much online about these Canadian cars.


I was wondering if you fine folks wouldn't mind giving me some tips on a few things...


Firstly, I'm having a hard time decoding the information on the VIN plate under the hood. The model number is 20-69, Trim is 441, Paint is 159, Engine is W168051, and the Body Serial is 5537. I'm hoping someone can give me a hand deciphering these codes or point me in the right direction.


Secondly, I'm looking for some brake parts for the car and was wondering what parts would be interchangeable between other Pontiac/GM models of the era (Chieftain, Chevy Deluxe, Chevy trucks, etc.)? Are the spindles, wheel cylinders, combination kits, the same between some of these models? Also, I'm wondering if it would be worth converting the car to disk breaks and, if so, if anyone has any suggestions for conversion kits.


Thanks in advance!
