All vehicles that are approved by there dealership and passed all safety inspections are suppose to have a 17 digit vin for it to be on the streets

The 17 character VIN became required beginning with 1981 model vehicles. Before '81 VINs were not standardized. For a '69 model, 13 characters is correct. Anything made before 1981 can't be carfaxed. It's not traceable. HTH. -Jim
