Re: Presentation and doubts

Denis .. if you can't find the info off that partial listing in Tech page give me the model and vin info and I will look at new Registry to pin point it for you.
I note on that list B40 isn't even mentioned and others have incorrect vin ranges.
Example
E55 1923 Model year at NYLI is N 101 - N 517 Jan 1923 to July 31 1923
E55 1924 model year at NYLI is N 518 - N 4,689 Aug 1 1923 to (?)
E55 1924 model year at Eliz is E 101 - E 9015 Aug 1 1923 to July 31 1924
E55 1924 model year at Flint is F 101 - F 8325 Aug 1 1923 to July 31 1924
E55 1925 model year at Eliz is E 9015 - E 15927 Aug 1 1924 to (?)
E55 1925 model year at Flint is F 8326 - F 16587 Aug 1 1924 to July 31 1925
E55 1926 model year at Flint is F 16588 to F 18930 Aug 1 1925 to Dec 31 1925
E55 then continues as 80 for model year 1926 F 18931 - F 20113 Jan 1 1926 to July 31 1926
And so on with all the models.

We would like to add your car to the new Registry.

Re: Presentation and doubts

If the tech page has incorrect information, perhaps it needs to be corrected and updated?

Re: Presentation and doubts

Yep all over the place and tried to.

Take a look at Frontenac ones.
1931 E 618 E 1001 - E 1301 Aug 1931 - Jan 31 1932
1932 E 670 is not G 1001 but continuation of the E series as G 1302 - to end Feb 1 1932 to (Feb 1933 ? )

1932 685 K 1001 - K 1271 May 1932 - Jan 31 1933
1933 685 K 1272 to end Feb 1933 to model end

Fronty Ace is not 81 - 1001 and up but 91 - 1001 and up. Conny Ace is 81 - 1001.

De Vaux is tricky
1931 675 at Oakland is C- 1001 - C 4745 April 15 1931 to Sept 25 1931 when stopped for good.
1931 675 at Grand Rapids is M 1001 - M 4745 April 6 1931 to Dec 31 1931
1932 675 M 4746 - M 5609 Jan 1 1932 to Mar 31 1932

1932 680 M 5610 - M 6468 April 1 1932 - Sept 31 1932
1932 680 M - 6469 - M 7038 Oct 1 1932 - Jan 31 1933 ( Oct 1 Continental drops De Vaux name and becomes Continental Automobile Co)

Both places on Rugby truck in Tech is incorrect saying Rugby truck production starts Sept 1928. Then explain the L, T, X Rugby trucks and manuals April 1 1928. That information, only applies to the M2 Durant truck. April 1 1928 M2 Star became M2 Durant. Sept 4 1928 M2 car became M4 Durant and M2 truck became S4 Rugby. Rugby line established at stop of Star March 31 1928.

Take a look at the Durant one. You see start to Lansing / Leaside for 1922. Any start to the 40 at any plant from 1001 ?
B22 is interesting at M 309 instead of M 101 etc. We have a B22 with vin M 223 which is before that M 309.

Just a small example ..
