Paint - General A note for you regarding the gloss vs. dull paint; there actually wasn't any dull (flat black) paint used in 1931, since everything was glossy, including the frame.  From what I was able to find out, flat black had not been invented yet! #(f)
Serial Number ALL serial number plates were located on the passenger
side main sill, next to the seat, under the floor mat on all closed
models.  This included the coach models as well.  Only the open models, i.e. the roadsters and the phaetons had the serial number plates located at the base of the front seat (seat kick up), passenger side.  #(f)
The numerals 1,2,3 etc. before the serial number indicate the plant in which the car was assembled. #(a)
