Notes about this vehicle:

Include in the notes section whether this is a pickup or van, since the data plate does not always tell this. Also include if the van has 8 doors or has other unusual factory features.


WARRANTY NUMBER contains 10 characters as follows:

W.B. is the wheelbase, which is always 90 or 090. Sometimes the leading "0" is caught under the rivet making it hard to read.

COLOR is the exterior paint color and is a single letter or a number. Sometimes it is two numbers or letters. Sometimes blank if a special order.

MODEL is E1 (that second digit is a one) followed by two more numbers.

BODY is not found on 1961-1962 models. It contains 3 characters.

TRANS is the transmission code and is usually a single letter. It might be a number and letter.

AXLE is usually 2 characters. A third character of 1 indicates a Spring Special.

Sometimes there is an extra 0 to the far left of the MAX G.V.W.LBS. Ignore this.

If there is only one number on the third row, it should be the DSO. Sometimes the numbers don't line up perfectly.

MAX G.V.W.LBS is the maximum gross vehicle weight in pounds, or the maximum total weight of the vehicle, passengers, and cargo. This is always a 4-digit number (5- if there is a leading zero). This is blank for passenger vehicles.

CERT. NET H.P. Certified Net Horsepower is the power rating of the engine. It is a 2- or 3-digit number. This is blank for passenger vehicles.

R.P.M. is the speed of the engine in revolutions per minute where the horsepower was measured. It is a 4-digit number. This is blank for passenger vehicles.

D.S.O. is the district code and special order code. It is usually a 2-digit number, but can be as long as six digits for special orders.
