Help identifying Stutz car number plate

Recommended Posts

OK ...

 

I believe the M8-24 identifies as a 1929 Stutz Roadster ...

 

Anyone know what the next 5 digits mean from Stutz records ?

 

Other than those numbers being a federal vin regigistration ?

It was a 1929 or 1930 car.   134 1/2 inch wheelbase.  The other 5 digits are from the FEDCO system.   If you do a forum search you can find other threads explaining it.  There is no meaning to it other than when the letters are decoded it will match the engine #.

Thank You !

 

Did the 5 digit FEDCO system interchange with any Stutz records that might still be available ?

 

This Stutz appears to be a 1929 Roadster base model with a rear bumper - not front fender - continental kit.

M8-24 is a Two-passenger Speedster with Rumble Seat (134 1/2 inch wheelbase).

SY32H  translates to 30325.

30325 is a 1929 serial number.

Will post a pix.  They car IDplate that is posted above by truly vintage is identical to one I took this morning

 

the car is partially apart but easy to see with pix.  It is a roadster  with 8 cylinder.  Not DOHC.  Has a rumble seat.  Doors are cut down

has continental kit with double spare tires. May not get pix until weekend

Flathead or OHC will make a difference.
