P39 and P40 fuselage hulks

I hope this is the right place to ask this question!

Back in September 2004 I visited the Fantasy of Flight collection in Polk City. Sitting in one of the hangers were two fuselage hulks: a P39 and a P40.
Would anyone have serial numbers for either of these please? Just trying to fill a small gap in my photo logs.

Many thanks in advance.

I've tried Wike etc to no avail.

P-39 should be 42-4312 now with Pioneer Aero at Auckland on rebuild for Kermit.

Probably P-40E N62435, damaged by Hurricane Andrew at Tamiami - his TP-40N was flying by April 2004 and I'm sure I saw it at Polk City looking fairly complete in 1999.
