Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Hi ChevyCheyenne71,
On your model number, the 14 is the code for Axel to Cab dimension. I equated that to wheelbase because wheelbase length provides more useful information than a Axel to Cab dimension does. Also to save space and still include all most all of the trucks found on this website, the trucks over 1 ton, or over 133" WB were left off. The decoders only cover light duty trucks, 133" WB or less. In your case the 14 is a Axel to Cab dimension of 84" to 89". Which equates to a wheelbase of 157" Hope that helps and welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing more of your truck. Nice looking Dually you have there.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

This is by far the easiest vin decoder to use and best looking one i have ran into in my many vin decoder searches. I have a small problem though. The truck i. Trying to decode is a GMC 5500 (Same as a chevy C50) and its vin is different than what are pictured. Its vin is CE50V-A102079

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

My GMC reference materials are packed up right now. (I'm in the middle of a move). But let me see if I can get this off the top of my head.

CE50V-A102079

C = 2wd
E = V-8
5 = 2 Ton
0V = Cab & Chassis
- = Space reserved for special designation
A = Atlanta assembly plant
1 = 1971
02097 = Unique serial number

Thanks for the complement on the decoders.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

So one of my trucks is also a GMC 1 ton with the 157'' wheelbase (used to be a class B MH) Pretty sure the wheelbase code is 64, that is what is says on the glove box anyways as the model-- CE364OV -- vin: CE3OV ZA 2....

kwmech, you got it right.
Model number
CE364OV
C = 2wd
E = V-8
3 = 1 Ton
64 = 157" Wheelbase
OV = Cab & Chassis

VIN
CE3OVZA2....
C = 2wd
E = V-8
3 = 1 Ton
OV = Cab & Chassis
Z = Fremont assembly

sherm, yours is correct for a 1969 Chevy 1/2 Ton.
C = 2wd
E = V-8
1 = 1/2 Ton
4 = pickup
9 = 1969
S = St. Louis assembly plant
894367 = Unique serial number, starts at 800001. (All Chevy light duty trucks started with 800001 in 1969)
This decoder will work for yours. I left off the starting number for 1969 (800001) and 1971 (600001) on this decoder. All other years 67, 68, 70, and 72 started with 100001. (Chevrolet light duty only)

What I was trying to pass on is that the 157'' wheel base has the 64 designation not mentioned in your data, unless I missed it in the past 5 pages

You didn't miss it. We intentionally left it off as well as many other codes that could be found on Chevy or GMC trucks, but are not common on this website. If we included them all the font would be to small or the decoder would be to large to be a quick and easy resource for the trucks most commonly found on this website.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Hi Bruceman1968!

This is a GREAT decoder!

We just picked up a 1970 GMC K20 for my son's project and I see in the VIN decoder that apparently this truck was a Cab/Chassis. I was wondering if you could help with the "F" designation so I can determine what it was originally. the frame number and the pillar tag match. The truck has been repainted, but it has a Chevrolet tailgate on a GMC, and now that I see this, there is a distinct possibility that it was used as something else before we got it. We do know that it was used to tow heavy construction equipment for most of its life.

KE203-FZ64735
MODEL KE25903

3/4T
4X4
350 V8
4 SPEED
HD F/R SPRINGS
RADIO
AMMETER, OIL GAUGE
A/C
PS
(NO PB)
7.50-16.5 WHEELS (SPLIT RIMS)
HD BATTERY
MED BLUE
L/R OUTSIDE MIRRORS
TINTED GLASS
BLUE VINYL TRIM
LOCKING FRONT HUBS

I'm mostly curious about the
"F" designation....Flatbed?

Thanks!

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Happy to help. Here is the correct VIN decoder for your 1970 GMC. The F is for the Flint assembly plant.

KE203-FZ64735
K = 4wd
E = V-8
2= 3/4Ton
03 = Cab & Chassis
- = Space reserved for special Designation
F = Flint Assembly plant
Z = 1970
64735 = unique serial number, starts at 50001 in 1970

And here is the correct model number decoder for your truck. As you can see, the 03 designates it as a cab and chassis.

KE25903
K = 4wd
E = V-8
2 = 3/4Ton
59 = 127' Wheelbase
03 = Cab & Chassis

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Thanks bruceman1968!

I was hung up on the FZ thinking the Z was for Fremont. I was mentally bypassing the dash, but now I see the Z is for 1970.

Is the "Fenderside" a pickup bed? And a Cab and Chassis something that maybe would have been given a flatbed somewhere later after delivery? Because right now, it has a pickup bed on it that APPEARS to have the same under color of paint as the rest of the truck, but since it has a Chevy tailgate..........who knows.

It does have the 127" wheelbase.

There is evidence of a plow having been attached to the front, so it very well could have been a plow truck with a sand bed on it or a water/oil tank.

Thanks again!

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Fenderside is GMC's name for a stepside bed. Your truck was originally built as a cab & chassis, with no bed on it. It could have had a flat bed added to it at the dealership or anytime after that.

Okie, SS Tim called me yesterday with some concerns about the decode I did on your truck. This morning I went through your previous posts and found the pictures of your SPID. From the pics of your SPID, I know I made a mistake on the decode. Often on SPIDs, the unique serial number was printed at a different time from the first half of the VIN and it shows with different Font and alignment. This is clearly the case on your SPID.

Your unique serial number is clearly 102079 which would make the A the model year. 1969 in this case. Sorry for any confusion my incorrect decode might of caused in relation to the year of your truck. It is a 1969.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Thanks bruceman1968! Very cool indeed. I was deciphering my Model number, using http://www.caaarguide.com/sub1/id442.html which had my burban listed as a 3-door wagon with liftgate. The burban has the barn doors (aka cargo doors?), so I was wondering someone had done a swap before getting to me. Your 67-72 K10 decoder ring produced this:

VIN = CKE162F145864

C = Chevy
K = 4WD
E = V-8
1 = 1/2 ton
6 = Suburban
2 = 1972
F = Built in Flint Michigan
145864 serial number

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Model KE10916

K = 4WD
E = V-8
1 = 1/2 ton
09 = 127" Longbed (Wheelbase Length)
16 = Suburban/Cargo doors
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
which seems much more accurate! Thanks again!!

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

I am having trouble decoding my 1967 1/2 ton 4x4 suburban. Can you help? It doesn't seem to follow any of the rules. I only have a 12 digit VIN code, and the DMV tells me it should have 14.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

It follows the rules in the picture bruceman1968 posted at 08-02-2016, 10:16 PM above, post #108

According to your VIN and the decoder, you have a 4wd 8-cylinder 1/2-ton Suburban 1967 Fremont-built with 6 digit serial number.

That is 12 characters. DMV is mistaken (first time that has happened, probably :-).

Thanks for finding this thread and bringing it back to the top. It is interesting and informative and I'm going to bookmark it.

Kevin, While a 67 GMC could have a 14 digit VIN, the 12 digit VIN on your 67 Chevrolet Suburban is correct and clearly so !

As was indicated it breaks down as,
K Conventional Cab 4x4
E V-8 engine (base 283 in your case)
1 10 Series 1/2 ton
6 Suburban
7 1967 model year
Z Fremont California assembly plant
156477 Unit serial number



Additional SPID coded information

Paint code 451 is Medium Blue Poly (metallic) code 506, applied as a two-tone with a code 526 Ivory roof.

Model number KE10916 confirms it to be a 4x4 V-8 1/2 ton Suburban with tailgate.
