At that time, dpending on the state that the car was regestered in when it was new,is what determines the vin.  some states used the engine number, and some states used the the number on the plate, which is the serial number.  I have two 41 plymouths, one was a michigan car and it used the engine number, the other came out of pennsylvania, and they used the plate on the door jamb which is the serial number.

I have had 3 cars, 2 Desotos and one Plymouth that were registered to the engine number. I live in Washington State and they were old titles.
