Help Identifying Car - Made In Canada


Hello, 

Looking for help to identify this vehicle. My understanding is it is a 52 however the serial number says otherswise. 

Model 22-69 

Serial 422691XXXX

Engine W28094 

Trim 300  Paint 451 

 

I am convinced it is a 52 Fleetleader special - 4dr sedan It has the same front styling etc.. 

however the serial is 42269.... meaning its a 54?

Thank you - I am so confused by the 4 at the beginning of the serial number, but it makes sense it is a 52 with that styling. 

Looks identical to a 52 Fleetlander Special - but that 4 thows me way off - I thought the first number in the serial number is the year

Thanks for your help.

I suggest you contact GM's Vintage Vehicle Services www.vintagevehicleservices.com For a small fee they will send you the line sheet and what they have matching your vehicles vin, that should help clear things up for you.

IMG_7437.jpegI have seen cars in the past that had the serial number plate changed. Not necessarily because the car was stolen, but to avoid paying transfer and license fees. Times were tough in the sixties for some families. The plate should be held on by a type of hollow rivet, not screwed on. I have included a picture showing the type of rivets. Sometimes the rivets may have a sealer dabbed on to fill in the hole in the centre.
