1912 touring
Hello Everyone
I am helping a family transfer a 1912 71T Overland to another family member....we cant find the three didgit VIN to satisfy the D.O.T
I have looked under the driver seat(found the brass tag),  up by the front right spring mount, and by the pushrods of the first cylinder. 
I have been told its on the frame not on the engine though....can anyone that is familiar with these beauties give me some advice?
If it is on the engine is it on a machined boss?....also should the car have a generator on the left side of the engine for the electric lights?
It looks like it was added later and thought it might be covering up something.

Thanks for any input

Lynn

Look on the left side headlight fork bracket. This also holds the radiator to the frame. There is a flat surface as you look straight down it is stamped with the model number then the serial number. It is usually painted over.

Good Luck

Hello,
That questions has been asked before as the data base doesn't show a 1912 71-T.....(the brass tag under the seat says 71-T) however it has always been licensed as a 1912...anyway to tell them apart?
Thanks...Lynn

RE: 1912 touring
No, because they are the same this happens often. States handle registrations differently. Some register on Date sold so a 1913 could and often is registered as 1912 or 1914 model. Our Registry is set based on the Manufacturers Model year and other production information. Just like today 1913 models were introduced in Aug or Sept of 1912.

The engine numbers are usually hand stamped on one of the faces of the rear arms that mount the engine to the frame. They would rarely match the chassis number.

Is your Overland listed in the Registry?

Hi Greg
The car is not mine...Im helping out an older friend who cant get around too good anymore...we live in Iowa the cars new owners will license it in Missouri...when they tried Missouri is asking for more paper work...they want to validate the vin....I was told the help at MODOT was at least 27 years old and probably hasn't seen such a thing as a three digit vin...(afterall it was 1912).....I will ask the new owners if they mind if I put it in your data base...what all info would be needed?......good idea!

There are about five Model 71 T's listed in our register. Could you find out if the older owner was ever a member of WOKR? Vin numbers for the Model 71 ran from 1-2965, and yes they were introduced in August 1912.Theoretically, the generator should be a Remy C60.
