My '57 convertible has the original engine serial number stamped on the side of the left rear frame rail between the axle snubber mount and the crossmember the rear shocks mount to. I have yet to find any other numbers stamped anywhere else.

I have been looking for those mysterious numbers all over that area on my '57 Chryslers and haven't found any yet. I even have a bare frame so it is easy to see, yet I haven't seen anything so far.

I never found any numbers on my 58 N/Y'er wagon frame either. Maybe it depends on where it was assembled or maybe they just didn't stamp the frames?

I have similar stenciled numbers on my '58 DeSoto frame. But I don't think they correspond to the serial number at all.

They were part numbers but not necessarily for the completed frame. They probably referred to the part itself, like a side rail alone?

We examined many 57/58 frames and I have never seen one that Wasn't stamped with the engine number. We sandblasted them all and for some it was very difficult to read them. There are lots of threads devoted to this topic. All the frames I had were built in Detroit!

The frame on my 57 Fireflite has this stenciled on the driver's side frame. I can't really tell what the first character is ahead of the 8. Hard to see in this picture, but I made out:

?804 23 08 57
120-6 1/2 13 THD
