Vin

Most vin sites tell me this is to short or not correct but its on the title and no harm in asking if anyone knows anything about vins.

K14662137337

Seems there should be a letter in there for the engine just bought it so trying to get an idea what it was.

Thx

Re: Vin

Thank you for the quick reply so I can virtually install any of the noted engines for the era. Would it show if it was optioned with the 305 anywhere I'd be happy with the straight 6 HO version..........

Thanks again

Re: Vin

Can you tell us if this is a Canadian or a US built truck.Just wondering because of your location. Also Chevy or GM.
The number you posted looks like the vin's on both of my Canadian built Chevy's but yours is too short.

Canadian vin should look like this 0C2534812xxxB.

0-Year (1960)
C-2 wheel drive
2534-Model (3/4 ton long fleet)
8-Number of cylinders
12xxx-Sequential serial number
B-GVW

Re: Vin

I don't remember exactly, but in 72 the VINs got longer by 1 digit. I think it was really 73ish time frame when the all started going to the 17 digit VIN, when most moved to the dash/windshield area. Prior to that, most all had short VINs like yours.
