cross member stencilled/painted markings
#1
There are various cars documented with stencilled markings for chassis number on the offside rear cross member of SWB cars.

Several cars from emerged recently with evidence of other markings  - painted 'EX' and stencilled SN on the nearside.

Can anyone come up with any others? (or memories of them) 

It obviously meant something in the factory office, but more evidence needed to confirm exactly what.

Well, with one example appearing from a similar facebook post (is this is a sign of things changing?) it appears that 'SN' may thus be SALOON, as all examples involved are such.

(And makes sense in the same way instructions are being found inside trim panels... to ensure things are matched appropriately once specified on paper)

Jon, I know we have been in touch but I will post my RN pics here in case anyone else can come up with a decipher.

I wouldn't say these marks are stencils - both are free hand - the N is back to front , made with three strokes.

On the Fabric Saloon the Holden nameplate is stamped AUSN  SLN - strangely with the second N back to front like a Z on its side ?

yes, seems they were getting a bit more slack by 1931 and 1932... i.e. freehand.

Tony, could we see a pic of your nameplate? I know its nothing linked, but the second N formation is remarkable if the stamp set was same for 'Ausn' and 'Sln'!
