vin on frame of a 1959?


Hi there, For a 1959 Parisienne is the vin of the car stamped on the frame somewhere.  The vin is missing from my car, it not in the usual drivers door jam.

Only familiar with us cars so someone with Cdn knowledge may step in here.

On a us car, the last digits of the vin were usually stamped on an x frame 1) on top of the frame, driver side, behind the body mount behind the rear tire 2) on the driver side on top of the frame just forward of the X tunnel. It would be in the area just under the front edge of the seat.

The stamping scan be very hard to find with the body on the car as they are very faint and usually this area is covered by paint, dirt, and or rust. Clean the area as best as you can, then wipe it with a damp cloth and try to get a picture, use lots of lights and maybe try a video inspection camera. Wetting the area with the damp cloth (maybe use a bit of varsol or light oil as it will stay wet longer than water) makes numbers stand out.

Do you have a vin on your motor vehicle registration? If so, get the Vintage Vehicle Services documents for your 59. If your motor is original, the numbers will match.

I didn't think they put VIN numbers on the frame that far back.  I wasn't able to find a VIN on either of my two 62 frames, even after completely sandblasting one of them.

I found this picture on the Internet of a U.S. built Chevrolet. Hopefully the Canadian Pontiac is stamped in the same location and it is readable. It wont be the complete vin as on the door, only the last sequence of numbers. You would need the year and model number to complete the vin.
