Decode real old cowl tag help

I bought some land out in the sticks and after the foliage died down there was what's left of a car. Here's a picture of the cowl tag and I don't know where to look to find out what it is. Help finding out what it is just for fun would be appreciated.

There's also a couple more cars or one may be part of this one too.

Re: Decode real old cowl tag help

It's funny how many posts on many different forums there are asking the exact same question! I looked.

And no one has an answer. Hopefully someone will recognize that one you found. Maybe a late 20's\early 30's Buick.

A picture of the rest of the carcass might help...

Re: Decode real old cowl tag help

Definitely looks like a fake tag! (just kidding)

I was poking around Hemmings site and found links to these...
http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/...chevrolet.html

http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/models/series1.htm

According to the 8870 job number the tag appears to be a Chevrolet 1929 model year, AC series Coach passanger car. The S number is probably the unit production number. i couldnt find much on that.

Neat find, and Yes...Post more pictures.....Jb

Kevin,

The tags do look similar. However, your 1927 tag is Job 7220. Waynes tag's Job no is 8870 which makes it a 1929 model year.



Many years ago, My dad and uncle had a "1929 International. They inherited it from my Grandpa who bought it new in 1929. They restored it immaculate. Long story short....I cried the day it went away knowing that it would have been mine some day. I have been looking for another one ever since.

Very nice project you have there. Good luck with it. ...Jb

Oh, Gary...Ask HwyStarJoe about finding stuff in the backyard!!!

Re: Decode real old cowl tag help

Sorry I took so long. After looking at pictures on ebay and other places and comparing the dash and doors I've come to the conclusion that it is a 1929 Chevy. I have some other pictures of parts but I don't know if they are from the same car. Here is a piece not far from it. What do you think it is?

Re: Decode real old cowl tag help

Here is another picture of a frame that is near where the house was which is not too far away also. I think it was used as one end of a clothes line. The tree is growing into it. Does this look like a 29 Chevy frame?

Re: Decode real old cowl tag help

The "S" as indicated in post number 4 is the plant code fore assm. In this case it is for St Louis Mo. The number next to that in the run number of that body style (Coach) from that assm. plant. (I mess with more than just Camaros)...Joe
