There should also be a Vehicle Certification Label (V.C. Label they call it) attached to the rear face of the driver's door. This will contain body color code, trim code, axle, transmission and DSO codes.
VIN codes since 1981 have been required to use a standardized 17-digit system. Prior to 1981, each company had their own system. All of the VIN decoders I've seen limit input to 1981 and newer, but as stated above, there are plenty of books (and websites) to help with older VINs.
There's all kinds of books to decode Corvette VINs or I'm sure you can just google "Vin Decoder Corvette" and find something.
If you are looking for owner, mileage, title info, like on CARFAX, forget it.
Please if anyone can help me. I'm trying to locate my wife's, late grandfather's 1979 450SL. The family sold the car several years ago after he passed, and she would be thrilled to get it back. I was hoping I could just do a carfax on the VIN# and find out some info, but apparently carfax (and everywhere else I found) will only take VIN#s for cars from 1981 and newer. Does anyone know of a way I can get some vehicle history info on this car? the VIN# is 10704412057228.
Are there no records of sale, and to whom the car was sold? The problem is that all state agencies, and most private ones, like club, will guard their client's identities, for fear of legal action.
Even if the car were on Carfax, it wouldn't show the person's name or address, only that the car might be in operation somewhere.
For other information about your truck you can read the DOOR STICKER
Records seem to show your truck as having a Branded Title for some reason.
