Hi, Thanks for the info. He found it on the engine and it matches the number on the registration. (He says NY state doesn't have titles for cars older than 1972.) If the woman at the vehicle registration office doesn't want a number on the engine and says it must be on the frame I already have that potential problem worked out. I'm going to write it on a piece of duct tape and tape it on the frame under the driver's side of the car. I'll lie on the ground and say here it is, do you want to see it or do you want me to read it off to you? She won't want to get dirty by lying on the ground so she'll just tell me to read it off to her. (I've done this before-don't forget this is Kentucky.) She will also want the odometer reading even though the car is 83 years old. Many states don't ask for it if the car is over 10 years old, but Kentucky always asks for it. The good news is Kentucky values all old cars that get antique plates at $100 (even if it's a mint 1970 Hemi Cuda or '59 Cadillac convertible) so the taxes are 6% which is $6. Thanks again for the info.

The engine number was the original serial number for a Model A Ford. Often the engine has been changed, sometimes this can lead to title problems. The engine number was originally also stamped on the top of the left frame rail, but you have to remove the body from the frame to see that number (if it is still there and visible). If the engine number (on the driver's side of the engine, near the top of the block) is the same number as on the title, you should have no problem in any state. If the engine number does not match a serial number on a title, it will be potentially difficult to title the car in some states.
