Is there such a thing as a numbers matching AD?

Yes, when the engine serial number that's in it matches the title that that was issued to the original purchaser. Lots of states, and apparently some foreign countries used the engine number for identification purposes. Lots of bolters have encountered problems with titling vehicles they purchased that had an engine swapped by the original owner, or someone down the line. Standardized "VIN Numbers" are a relatively recent thing.

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

It depends on whether the first DMV "title" used the Engine Serial Number (stamped into the block at the rear of the distributor) or they used the Vehicle Serial Number (on the metal plate between the hinges on the driver's door jamb).

North Carolina expects to see the Vehicle Serial Number (until a frame serial number was used around 1956). That plate must not appear to have been removed (for painting, for example).

If your Australian ID codes are similar to USA ID codes:
here are USA 1950 Engine Serial Numbers and Vehicle Serial Numbers [chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com]

What are your two codes - ESN & VSN ?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engines are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. [chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com]

We have different codes, our registration papers have the engine number and the body number, example engine number on mine is R356118 this I am assuming would have been issued in canada as part of chevs ckd kit and the body number is HP51194 which was issued by the australian company contracted to chevrolet at the time to locally build thr vehicle, which was holden or GMH which was a merger of holden and general motors

Both these numbers were on the original regsitration form in 1950 and are still the same today, hence its a numbers matching ute
