According to Hagerty the VIN is located on the passenger’s side front of the block, down where the timing cover and the oil pan meet. I suggest you contact PHS for information. There is also a book about authenticating GTO's.


They had a 2 letter code like YS or WT. Below that was a 6 number engine unit number like: 356289. Nothing to link back to the VIN
