Unfortunately not. VIN plate with model, vin, plant name. Some states use vin, some the engine number, and other their own number not even connected to either.
I recall in the early 60s some club members just used a part number off the water pump or elsewhere if ownership / info lost. MOT / DOT weren't as fussy back then. You'd tell them it was lost but here's a number they believed you and didn't check.
When I bought my 1930 614 Durant sedan June 6 1962 the ownership papers were lost. The seller gave me two bills, one saying 1929 Durant and the other 1930 Durant, as he didn't know, and neither did I it was just an old car. License bureau asked me what year I wanted to use and I said 1930, having learned there is a big difference 1929 to a 1930. Just got better as the seller made a mistake saying I had deposited $10 more than I had on the $75 cost. I mentioned that to also to the bureau so they charged me $1.95 sales tax on $65 instead. I still have all the paper work inc the two bills. Can't recall what year I sold the car 1969 / 70 ?
