59 Impala info needed

I have a 1959 Impala convertible the was built in Canada. There is no evidence of a trim tag on the cowl. The VIN tag on the left door jam is larger than a US serial number tag, it says Genera Motors of Canada, has a space for the model # which is blank, below it is the serial # and below that is the engine serial #. So I guess my question is does anyone know if cars built in Canada had a trim tag and mine is missing or is it located someplace else. The car has been restored and has a 235 6 cylinder, powerglide, power steering and power brakes.

I am not sure as to the vin tag for Canadian cars. As for finding more documentation on your specific car it should be easy since Canadian plants kept better records than the US plants did. I know people can get info packages for Nova's and Camaro's that were built in Canada that the US built cars can not get. Some one will pipe in with were to get that info.
