Vin number 4997731 trying to find information .. but I can't look up the vin because they all say I need more numbers
Son just purchased a 63 Bug with vin number 4997731 trying to look up more info on it but
every place I go says I'm missing some numbers
You getting that number off the title or off of the frame of car? If title then double check that it matches the car. Typo on titles sometimes.

You can't carfax a vehicle older than a 1981 model. That was when VINs became standardized with 17 characters. All vehicle history report sites (vinlog, autocheck, etc.) are like that. HTH. -Jim
