Can anyone decipher a VIN# and the number stamped on the block?
Can anyone decipher the VIN# and the number stamped on the block? The
VIN# is 194679S701153 The number stamped on the block is: 2195701153
Any information will be greatly appreciated!! I have no history on the car. Thank
you for any help you can provide!
19467 is the model number (Convertible Roadster). 9 is the model year (1969). S is the build plant (St. Louis, Missouri) 701153 is the sequential unit number of the car beginning with 700001. Yours is a low unit number so it was probably built in late '68. You can contact Allied Vaughn, they have a website, with your VIN and for $50 get a copy of your specific car's factory to dealer invoice. Also check out the GM Heritage Center. Many years of Chevrolet are available for a free download of the complete vehicle information packet. This includes original dealer information, AMA specs, option codes, etc., etc., etc. Unfortunately I don't have the information to decode the block number. Perhaps someone else can chime in on that. HTH. -Jim
I have not been able to find a website for "allied vaughn" that has to do with car documentation. Can you send me the exact website address please? It will show up as a link here, and I can probably click on it and go right to it. Thanks for your help!!
Sorry, I found the order form and have sent it to them. Thank you so much, I hope they are able to help . My car is a 1969 model Corvette, and the GM Heritage Center said they only have Corvette records from 1979 to the present....no records at all for 1969 cars.
You're welcome. Glad to help. I'm glad you found the website! I noticed after posting the VIN information that your block number has the same last six numbers as the VIN. I believe that means that the engine is original to the car. In other words a "numbers matching" car. Good luck with your search. -Jim
