Default old vin tag question

So there is another 64/65 I found with a seized engine. Could get it for parts for my truck, or restore them together...I do have two boys who want a 40 some day! Anyway, the VIN tag is interesting, at least compared to the one on my truck. Mine listed below has the red paint around it, and has the actual VIN on it, and the dimensions are listed in mm and liters. The one on this other 64/65 looks almost identical, but it only lists the frame number, not the vin, and it lists the dimensions in inches. The Nebraska title lists the 'frame number' as the VIN. Any thoughts? or concerns?? Thanks!!

Tim

In Colorado the number stamped in the frame is the VIN for title purposes AFAIK.

There are documents that I believe cover you if the body tag and frame number don't match. I think that would require a salvage title (or is it custom-built with VIN declaration?) legally.

Is there something I'm missing, I just see frame numbers and engine number on the one. I don't see a VIN.

I'm with Dave on this, don't see a VIN. My recollection is that my 40 tag had just the Frame No.

ahhh, ok. Yeah, the first number is the engine number. I was just surprised to see them be so different when they are the same year or only one year different, especially the metric vs usa

Brass tag re-title, original and a neat part of the history of Cruisers

VIN is the frame number for every early Cruiser.

Interesting that they both have Phillips screws rather than the rivets mine are attached with.
