I just rescued this car from a rat rod project. It's pretty rough but I believe it to be kind of rare. I was able to find the numbers on the medallion on the dash, but not 100% sure I have all of them correct. I was hoping someone could help me I. D. this. I would love to get it titled and want it to be correct.
The medallion is oval shaped and vertical. It says chrysler and Plymouth on it. Chrysler above Plymouth and Plymouth is larger print. The letters and numbers for the serial # go from top to bottom. I believe it says
H6286p and the engine # is Q2 then a backwards 3 then 0745. Any help would sure be appreciated.
Thanks,
Hans

Welcome to Allpar. The 1928-29 Q was the first real Chrysler-Plymouth and was derived from Maxwell roots. It later was referred to as a Plymouth. It gave Ford and Chevrolet new competition and was very nicely equipped for a 4-cylinder 'value' car entry. The model U replaced it.
The ID plate should be mounted on the dash and also on the right door hinge pillar. I see an ID range of #HL950P-HD999D. It should start with 2 letters, then 3 numbers and then a letter. This is info from the Hollander Interchange Classic search manual: 1920's-1948
My engine # information only goes back to 1931. You may want to investigate finding a shop manual for the car. It may have more specific information.
I agree that this is a rare and historic find.

I have never used gobookee and can't vouch for their services, but they may have the manual:

The WPC club may have a back-issue reprint featuring the 1929 Q (they feature a different Chrysler product each month). I don't know their policy on non-members, but by becoming a member it might open the door for more information and parts resources for the restoration.

Thanks for the info. I will try these sites. I have tried to carefully clean the medallion a little more, but can't make the second number, a letter yet. I will keep trying. Thanks again.
