  1. Hi Guys. Yes thanks. It seems on the initial view that the items match, even the oil filter location. Was not sure how to, and if the cast code would lead to anything. Would be next step is to determine the auto trans mission connected to it with seemingly 3 speed box. Thanks again. Even the carb looks similar to this articleI found ... http://www.allpar.com/mopar/b-engines.html
  2. I will keep you posted. Thanks for all the effort and help. Funny qe dont know one another but cars make people meet. Keep an eye. I have got copper wire drill brushes for my drill so tomorrow i am going to take my time and polish the frame until i find it. So pardon my knowledge short fall is the difference between body and chasis number. Thought they would be the same thing? Peter in Pretoria
  3. Hi Fellow LC People. I have the following motor in my 1946 Continental, does anybody know what engine it might be. Not a V12 that it should be but a V8 with a Lc L350 29857 number on the block. I am not from States but would love to know more. Any advise our guidance would be highly appreciated, thanks. I believe there was limit one month run with v8 in 1948 but unconfirmed and I doubt it.
  4. Hi Tom. That number is H15 then the hole then 321. So the full number is H15 321 is that the full number? I have scrapped the whole rear chasis arms down, on the right. nothing. I have scrapped the left only on the side. Will get my helper to put it up again tomorrow and we can check underneath. The suspension support weld. I dont think the car has the original transmission. Mine has a V8 engine in (which is a topic of another discussion with a LC L-350 29857 and it matches with an automatic pushbutton transmission located in the dash. Have no Idea what cars V8 it is. To tell you the car comes from a collector that passed on to that big fuel station in the sky. Well I am sunburnt as only africa can give. I will proceed onwards tomorrow. So the vin number on a LC 1946 is only 3 digits and then 3 more after the hole. Why they punched it there is beyond me. The authorities here is probably going to find it challenging as it looks like I changed the serial number or removed a digit. I will bring a hand sander with tomorrow and do the left with a finer sand grain as not to damage the vin if I find it. But keeping record of what I found when. Must say the steel and all very good condition. Look there is rust but for the most part all is fairly strong still but main parts little to none rust it seems.
  5. I have opened the hood and after some chemical cleaning and water compression hose i have found the on the leftside of the engine compartment. Left as in if i was sitting inside. It is on the cross arm. A ammended engine mounting has been done to carry the v8 somewhere along the line. But the code seems to have a hole straight through it. There is a similar hole on the right hand side but no code obviously. And i have done the right rear wheel frame but no code. What is interesting is that the vin code on the boot lid and cross arm dont match.
  6. On opening the left rear wheel this is what I found from the inside. Which photo angle am I likely to find the vin number. And is it on the side by the wheel, underneath or on the inside side if the frame? Photos from left to right....front to rear.

  8. Morning. It's 9:38am here. Here is what I found with my dremmel copper brush. 5EH67-302 which on decoding sites i have not been able to get it to make sense. Any advice. Is the vin number so short? I can imagine with low numbers after the war but just asking?
  9. Hi. I see this is an old post but let me try and see if someone could help. I have a 1946 yellow LC BUT HERE IS THE CATCH....it's a right hand drive. I have been having all my days trying to find the chassis number. Further more it has a V8 which is not standard but the Engine number is LcL 350 29857. I managed to determine that the cowl mounted battery box was not standard and took it off, to see the patent pending tag in tact and readable. (I add photos to show more about what I speak about). The engine looking from the front has a pattent pending plate in the middle on the cowling/firewall where the battery box is but on non of the models I could find I could see the break assembly that is on the left. Could this have been assembled of the serial number? is the serial number suppose to be to the left in front of the right hand side driver steering coloumn looking from the inside. Please could someone also give me an idea if the chassis number occurs somewhere else on the chassis and where? Any help guys would be great.
