correct VIN ?

Post by clank »

I have a 69 Corvair bought in 2012, Insurance just sent me a note saying the VIN is wrong. AS read through the windshield on dash, it is correct. In researching, the 5th and 6th number in VIN on a 69 is supposed to be the year made. Mine is reading 79 as the fifth and sixth number. It is very clear that the number is definitely a 7. Anyone know anything about that??

No, I think it's correct. Let me steal Bbodie52's post from the other Newbie thread on here..... ::-):

Only one digit indicates the year and that is the 6th position. You have a "9" there. Nothing wrong with that.

Position 4 and 5 go together and indicate if you have a 2-door coupe "37" or a 2-door convertible "67".
