Re: Vin location on a 1951 Ford Custom Deluxe Club Coupe

The serial number is stamped on the frame rail in a couple of places. It matched the number on the firewall plate on my car.

Re: 1951 Ford Victoria Headliner

I was referring only to the 1951 Ford Victoria in the above post. The headliner, in this instance, does in fact need to be installed with the glass removed. On other models, that may not be necessary.

Re: 1951 Ford Victoria Headliner

One other thing to keep in mind is that to replace the headliner you need to remove and replace the three piece rear window. Been there, done that. It is a bit of a challenge.
