    Unhappy Vin decoding

    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.

    sounds like somethings a miss, and your original thoughts are correct!

    Stolen from here how to check your vin

    VY - VZ - WK - WL

    6G1=World Manufacturer Identifier.
    6=Oceania.
    G=Australia.
    1=Holden.


    Z=Model series.
    Y-VY
    Z=VZ.


    K=Luxury level.
    K=Executive, SV6, SV8 SS
    L=Berlina.
    X=Calais.


    5=Body Style Code.
    5=4 door sedan.
    8=Wagon.
    4= ute




    2=Restraint Code.
    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.


    F=Engine code.
    B=Alloytec 175 V6.
    7=Alloytec 190 V6.
    F=GenIII V8.
    A = 3.8L ecotec
    R = Supercharged Ecotec (L67)


    0=Security check code.


    5=Model year code.
    2=2002
    3=2003
    4=2004
    5=2005.
    6=2006


    L=Plant build code.
    L=Elizabeth.


    the last six numbers are your Sequential production number.
    So ...

    6G1YK52A63L961104

    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

    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!
