Hi guys I have just bought a VY SS and I am very confused.....on the id tag on the front bumper it has VY8VK69-114-R7F at the top then then engine number is LN3, which i have always believed to be a V6, the engine number is VF023290647, and the susp. is STD but i thought it should be FE2, the body number is 6G1YK52A63L961104 PLEASE HELP!!!! I am VERY confused
I dont think you have a VY SS. The VIN L961104 = very early Jan 2003 build. The A = V6
The SS ahould have an F as the engine code didgit in the VIN.
The engine number VF023#### slots into production around March 2003.
Red 04 V6 VZ Executive wagon soon a Green S/C VY
and 1 Dangerous non ABS VN wagon
sounds like somethings a miss, and your original thoughts are correct!
Stolen from here how to check your vin
So ...VY - VZ - WK - WL
6G1=World Manufacturer Identifier.
K=Executive, SV6, SV8 SS
5=Body Style Code.
5=4 door sedan.
1=Active seat belts.
2=Active belts with driver and passenger airbags.
3=Active belts with driver airbag.
4=Active belts with driver, passenger and side airbags.
B=Alloytec 175 V6.
7=Alloytec 190 V6.
A = 3.8L ecotec
R = Supercharged Ecotec (L67)
0=Security check code.
5=Model year code.
L=Plant build code.
the last six numbers are your Sequential production number.
6 = Oceania.
G = Australia.
1 = Holden.
Y = VY
K = Executive, SV6, SV8 or SS
5 = 4 door sedan.
2 = Active belts with driver and passenger airbags.
A = 3.8L ecotec
6 = Check Digit
3 = 2003 MY
L = elizabeth plant
961104 = sequential build number
Ive read a few places that list "A" as the Ecotec and as green saud, F is the V8. I'm 99.9% sure the susp on the compliance plate should also read FE2.
Somethings not right
thanks guys it is VERY strange, all vin numbers match and it does have FE2 suspension, maybe back yard SV6 body swap?? on rego papers engine number matches the numbers on the LS1 block and vin number is same on rego as well, WTF???
Here's another one.......just picked up a '09.5 MY Calais. According to the VIN its a 2010 build, and the engine code is V. This doesn't appear in the code list in the owners' manual. Anyone have any clues?
I traded my '05 V8 Statesman, so I'm still grieving!
