Yeh, don't get your hopes up for a lot of good information. The best will be the IBM card and the engine number verification.

Good luck.

is the ibm card the body tag? my 55 is early and doesn't have one (was told they came on later 55's?) also my engine is long gone. I guess for starters is get the broadcast sheet from fca and go from there

Don't know about 1955 Dodge body tags but I am pretty sure that you will NOT get a broadcast sheet from FCA. At best you will get a letter and a copy of the IBM card image. (The IBM cards were put onto microfiche and then destroyed (or they burnt in some fire) - which is too bad because back in the day, the IBM card and the broadcast sheet were probably linked by a card reader/printer system (now long gone)).

Some people have found broadcast sheets taped to the top of the cardboard glove box shell - or under the rear seat - or under the carpet - or nothing.

An example IBM card image (my car) and a thread in which attempts are made to decifer the card:

Good luck.

Not sure about the accepting payment comment but I do know that if you can't prove that you are the registered (titled) owner, then they are not going to provide you with anything and would return your check uncashed.
