Finally tracked down my VIN: V18244 Goshen, Indiana on the ID placard. Titled as a "1965 Shasta - Model Unknown" - although I know it's a 16-SC and hope I can get it corrected when I take the title in.
Well, we'd like to provide you with #301, but what appears to be Hamlet's VIN is pretty much unintelligible. Definitely from Indiana, then I think the first number is a 1, then there are either three or four more numbers. We bought Hamlet as a "59" (knowing that the first model year was '60), but think he might be a 61. The mirror was missing and we haven't found a date on the underside of the sink. Ross, what are some of the VINs you have for canned-ham style Compacts built in Goshen? It doesn't really matter what year he is, it'd just be fun to know.
Just bought ours. The seller said it was a 1959 but the tile says 1965 and the vin# 1984 airflyte. He said the 59 was the last year for the wooden screen door???!!!! I don't know what, and to register it they will go by the title given to me. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jan
