EDIT: And I know how you feel - I searched for weeks to find an early VIN decoder for our '72 Commando before I found that site above. IF YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS you can post the VIN, block casting number, block date stamp, and I can break them down for you. In the mid 1950’s American automobile manufacturers began stamping and casting identifying numbers on cars and their parts.
Drivetrain Engine, Transmission, Differentials, Transfer case, anything that makes your CJ go forward. I just learned that our 258 is in reality a 232 I guess thats not good or bad but you need to know what is under your hood. Also there is all kinds of emission stuff on the carb and the intake that I have no Idea where anything goes. To protect the consumer from theft and possible fraud, the manufacturer is required to include a Check Digit at the 9th position of the Vehicle Identification Number. The most common place to find your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is on a small metal plate attached to the driver side top of the dashboard. Look for a nice large data plate located on the dashboard to the left of the steering column. Look for a small strip of metal riveted to the backside top of the Windshield Wiper Motor Cover. Little did I know, the sequential serial number (last 5 digits of your VIN) can be found stamped on the frame. It should be on the passenger side top of the frame rail right about where the hump is in the frame.

I feel like a recovering addict that just had a bag of blow, a bottle of Jameson, and a sack dropped in his lap. I have a frame serial number, but I am not sure if it is a partial number, because I can only find 8 digits.


It is my son's jeep we have been working on it for 3 years now and we got the engine from a person that was giving up on his project. One of my questions is that our engine has a 2 barrel and it looks to me that the 232 only came with a 1 barrel so I am wondering if the 2 barrel was put on after the fact?
The Check Digit is used by the manufacturer and government agencies to verify the authenticity of the vehicle and official documentation. In the mid 1950's American automobile manufacturers began stamping and casting identifying numbers on cars and their parts.
Customer must select Standard Shipping in the checkout and ship to an address in the contiguous 48 United States. It can be seen by standing outside the driver's side of the jeep, looking through the windshield glass at the wiper motor cover. May need to clean up with wire brush on grinder wheel and or remove the tire to see vin number.
The obvious purpose was to give an accurate description of the vehicle when mass production numbers were starting to climb in very significant numbers.
So do I need that stuff or should I get read of it and plug the holes and which ones I need to know things like that or where I can find out. This character is called a "check digit" because it is designed to protect the consumer from theft and possible fraud.
Some parts require additional handling charges due to their large size or weight: including wheels, tires, full suspension lift kits, oversized bumpers, tire carriers, body tubs, hard tops, cargo racks, winches and hitches. Throughout this website and catalog the terms JeepĀ®, Wrangler, MOPARĀ®, & Rubicon are used for identification purposes only. It has a VIN number on the title, but nothing on the Jeep, except for a partial number (8 numbers, from what I can make out) on the rusty frame.
I know Jeeps change hands over and over, and being able to simply build your own Jeep is what makes them so great. You may also get lucky and just need a flashlight and take a look over the tire to see vin#. Research has shown that early Vin’s came in all sorts of variations which depended on the individual manufacturer at that time. This established the fixed VIN system for major vehicle manufacturers as it is known today.

My Jeep has been redone before, and the VIN plate is missing, along with all the other appropriate stickers and plates. Research has shown that early Vin's came in all sorts of variations which depended on the individual manufacturer at that time.
Thus, establishing a unique "DNA" style number for each unique vehicle which rolled off the assembly line. If the tag is missing, chances are the vehicle has been repaired, or was most likely, stolen.
I tried to decode the VIN number on the title, and the number points to a 6 cylinder CJ5, with a manual trans. The check digit is used by the manufacturer and government agencies to verify authenticity of the vehicle and official documentation. The algorithm used to determine a check digit is not released to the public for obvious reasons, however the secret has been leaked and the check digit can be calculated.
The head also has a casting number but the valve cover needs to be removed so I do not recommend getting this number. But if you ever remove the valve cover record the head casting number it is the center part of the head. I joined this forum to get answers, and tap into a great resource, and have some fun with fellow Jeep lovers. I tried those online VIN number searches, and they only research back to '81, when the VIN numbers changed to 17 characters, from 13, which what my tile has.
