Keiser also is Dodge guy and seems to run across an inordinate number of old cars, of which he posts pics on the forum.  ?

I can not find the frame number scrapping dusting etc no luck I do have the block number. I called our local DMV here in Oregon and they don't have registration info dating back to the last time the car was registered. How in the world do I title this thing? Vermont?

So, the only number you have is the engine number which won't do you any good, especially since it's a Plymouth.  And the DMV doesn't have records anyway.  Dunno how OR works but I can think of only one other possible option.  Can you and/or the estate executor file for a lost title replacement?  Probably have to have your grandfather's death certificate and documentation of the executor's appointment and/or your inheritance of the truck.  Also might have to post a bond in case there's a later claim against your ownership.

I wish I could offer some help.

Oregon is tough but at least you have the advantage of it coming from family.

I would take it to the DMV and ask for advice. They may want a vin inspection which costs about seven bucks at their office.

I know that any vehicle coming from out of state requires that VIN inspection and not required for in state transfers but it couldn't hurt.

Also, there are big differences between DMV offices and DMV employees. You might be trailering it around some to different facilities until you find someone that is willing to help.

Bring all and any paper work including death certificates and executer statements.

Good luck, this can be a frustrating endeavor. But you might just get lucky.

Problem is, it's a Plymouth passenger car engine in a Dodge truck that's at least 10 years older.  Granted, most DMV employees probably won't know the difference but there's always the possibility that one will.

OK Chud,

 

so your suggestion is what?

That number is integral to the vehicle, should it be stolen.

 

Glad to hear a better answer............. hot rodders use their newer engine numbers and being the wrong engine, would fall into the same category to me.

Hi Patrick. We bought this truck and did find the vin on the right side of the frame. There was a cab tag on the engine side of the firewall . Someone had mounted a regulator on top of that tag and removed the plate above it in order to attach the aftermarket horn. I just accidentally came across this picture! Crazy. If you find any other pieces-like the plate that was removed (I bet it was put in a safe place) or literature/pictures,  I can’t wait to see if your uncle has any pictures or even stories as we’d emailed.  Did your grandpa buy this truck new? The truck started right away and Alvin is repairing the brakes. I love it! Thank you.

I did tell you that it is a 2nd series 35, 119” wheelbase, and yes, it has a Plymouth 46-48 motor that runs!  And it was one of the last ones built in LA, CA.  A little background is that shortly after we got married, we’d bought a 36 Dodge truck for 75.00 (it was only a 30 yr old truck at that time) Our parents pestered us to no end to get rid of it so after a while, we did. Regretted it ever since. Tried to find it a few times with no luck. So we are restoring this 35 KCL and loving every minute!  It’s not the same truck; but close enough to make us happy! Thank you
