Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The are no VIN numbers for vehicles before 1954. The engine serial number was used as the VIN. Here, I am providing a link to a site to give you a better understanding.... http://www.fordgarage.com/pages/ABenginenumbers.htm#C1

NOTE:

All Model A engine serial numbers were hand-stamped on the left hand side of the engine block, above the water inlet as shown above. There were variations in the spacing, position, orientation, and sharpness of individual numerals due to the manual alignment and stamping operation.The number pad itself was an as-cast surface on US-produced engines and was not machined flat. However, some early 1928 and some Canadian-produced and numbered engine blocks were stamped on a machined pad surface, not on an as-cast surface.
