I have a 37 coupe Zephyr that has been relieved of its firewall tags. All that is left is a frame number on the front left (driver side) cross member. I was wondering what information could be learned from this number? Thank you for any help or direction...

Hey Metal Twister...the frame number is the car serial number and the missing body tag shows the production number of the body...body #48 or 849 or 1258 whatever. The body tag would show 86H-720-"sequential body number"

OPPS...body tag would show for the 37 Zephyr coupe HB720=body sequential number. 86H is for 38 Zephyrs. Sorry

And the other missing tag would be the Patent Plate.
