Hi folks,<br>I have a question regarding VINs.<br>Where can I find out how to decode a 1976 VIN.<br>Carfax is no help. Theirs only goes back to 1981 which seems to be the case everywhere I have looked so far.<br>I guess the governing bodies(whomever they were) mandated the VIN rules in 1981. <br>Aargh.<p>Any advice will be muchly appreciated.<p>Von Chops

Re: VIN Decoding prior to 1981 (VONCHOPSTEIN)

try this site:<p><A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/1980/1980_VIN-VIC/vic1980.html" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/owner....html</A><p>This gives you the VIC number decoding for earlier cars<p>changing one digit (the "c" to an "n") gives you the VIN decode:<p><A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/1980/1980_VIN-VIC/vin1980.html" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/owner....html</A><p>to find earlier years, simply change the date you want, and make the change consistent through the entire url. Haven't tried this for anyting earlier than 1980.
