How to decode your VIN

The VIN number is the most important number on your car, and the starting point in documenting any vehicle. Without the VIN number, it is impossible to verify anything about the vehicles history, features, or authenticity. That being said, it is extremely important to understand how to decode your VIN. It is especially important when considering buying a car that is said to be “numbers matching”.

Chevrolet VIN numbers in 1969 used a 13 digit alpha-numeric number, always starting with the number 1. The first digit indicates the division, and “1” represents Chevrolet. The next two digits indicate the series, which also determine if the car has a 6 or 8 cylinder, and the two digits after that determine the body style. The next digit (which is the 6 th digit in the VIN) indicates the model year…”9” equals 1969. If the six digit of your VIN is anything other than a 9, than it’s not a 1969 Chevrolet.

The seventh digit indicates the plant where the car was built. This is a letter for all American built full size Chevrolets, while Canadian made cars use a “1” or a “2”. The final 6 digits are the sequential production number, and all full size Chevrolets in 1969 started with number 000001 at all production plants.
