Thanks for the comments, Fuz. Like jopizz, I have looked at 1959 Lincoln Data Plate now also. They all start with a 4, so that had to be a Lincoln ROT Sheet that was stuffed in the car along with the...

Great find! That looks like 2 different ROT Sheets! Different VIN # showing on each. I see on the top ROT Sheet the VIN # is 414648, which is interesting that it starts with a 4 and the bottom one...
