  2. does any one know about VL VIN plates

    Can anyone help with my VIN?

    I have a VL V8 berlina with a build plate date of MAY 88.
    I am curiuos to find out how far from the end of the production run this car would have been built.

    I am a little confused as the second digit implies I have an SL but the writing from the original owners manual has berlina on it and it has berlina badges on the interior and exterior, plus some other berlina options.

    No-one can really help you unless you post up the numbers off the VIN plate & build plate from your VL.

    The model code on the build plate should read:
    VL8VK19 for an SL/exec, or VL8VL19 for a Berlina

    The K means base & the L means mid model. X = Calais

    VLs finished up in June/July '88 (depending on plant)

    It's because those "examples" don't explain what the breakdown of the code is.

    The J is the model year code, and the one in the example is for 1988 model year.
    1989 = K
    1990 = L
    1991 = M

    Note the model year runs from sept 01 to Aug 31. So a 1991 model is anything built from 01-09-90 to 31-08-91.

    This follows the yankee GM tradition.

    Can anyone help me out here? My VN's VIN number is close to, but not included in those above.

    It's : 6H8VNK19UML with the numbers 503042 after it.

    It SHOULD be a 1991 VN SS Commodore, but I want to make certain.

    Cheers

    I found a pretty good site in my frustrated net searchings last night.

    http://www.axisuniversal.com.au/Explain.aspx

    Basically, sign up with a username and valid e-mail (just use a spam account, I did) and it will send you a password. Login and it will give you 50 free goes at decoding VIN numbers. After that 50, either pay, or sign up with another e-mail address. Gmail anyone? :)

    Mine says :

    VIN: 6H8VNK19UML503042
    Manufacturer: Holden
    Build Year: 1991
    Model: Commodore VN
    Derivative: Commodore VN SS
    Drive Side: Right Drive
    Body Style: Sedan
    Door Count: 4 Doors
    Engine Size: 5.0 litres
    Gearbox: Automatic
    Gear Count: 4 Gears
    Transmission: Rear
    Fuel: Petrol
    Fuel Delivery: Injection
    Engine Rating In Kw: 165 Kw
    Valve Count: 16 Valves
    Cylinder Count: 8 Cylinders
    Model Family: Commodore
    Model Series: VN Commodore

    Pretty trick ....

    The VIN is made up of:

    so this example is a Holden built VP Berlina Commodore sedan with a V6 3800 engine, built in 1991 at Elizabeth SA, and it was number 123456 off the production line.

    Thanks for the response, however, the VIN in question is on a VT commodore built in Oct 99. So, I'm not sure how that fits with your reading of the VIN. But, again,thanks for trying.
    Have a safe and happy festive season.
    cheer,
