Default Briggs Body Number

The Briggs firewall plate on my 31 Slant Window Cabriolet is 68C 4028. From that number is there any way to determine the approximate date the BODY was built? Thanks

I'm not sure if Briggs kept records all that well and they didn't last near as long as Ford Motor Co has. Other 68C owners are your best source of information on these types.

If there is an owners group, see if they have a register of body numbers. Yours is number 4028 of whatever is lowest & highest made for about 6 months in '31.

I have body number 3629 on my 68C and a late May engine and frame number. I figure the body to be a July assembly. Most of the cars were built July thru August.
