1926 Chrysler F58 identification


Recommended Posts

 

 

I have a chance to acquire a complete Chrysler 4 cylinder chassis. Also included is a Chrysler touring body for it. I was told it was a '26 but I am not sure. What do I need to look at to correctly identify it? Attached is a not a very good photo of the engine number if that helps.

I hope I'm not intruding but I just acquired what i believe is a 1926 chrysler F58. Also is there anymore identification numbers that I should look for? Engine serial? Trans serial? Possibly a frame number? I'm completely new to the pre war era vehicles and dont know where to start for trying to find outside its history or to even find out if my car is original or not.

The letters basically were allocated numbers as follows:-

 

W  P  C  H  R  Y  S  L  E  R

 0  1   2   3  4  5  6  7  8  9

 

So the starting serial number YC200P = 522001 and YR056S = 540566, the last serial number built.

YH249R becomes  532499, this being the serial number of your car.

Regards

Viv.

The last "R" for # 9 should be the letter "D"

Somewhere in that era, as well, there was a change from Fisher bodies - with a Fisher cowl plate - to 'Chrysler' bodies with no cowl plate. I think just due to a change of ownership of the body factory.
