    Re: VIN Numbers

    I have a 70 and a 71 that had the factory four cylinder engines. I'll check them out when in the shop today, but I know that the serial numbers began with a '2'. I also have a serial tag from one I parted out that had a V6, but was originally a f-134. It began with a '2' too.

    I'll also check out the serial numbers to see if jeep would have duplicated serial numbers like 250000 and a 350000, for a F4 and V6, respectively, but I bet they would have.

    I dug up the info on my '68 with a V6. I have to find the title to see if it has a build date, but here's the serial number: 8305 017 244192

    EDIT: The date on the title says 10/21/68. This might be a title date or manufature date, but it's not stated.

    I know this is late for the thread, but I found it through a search trying to confirm the year model of a new project. I have a reported '71 s/n 830517-369069. If the dates of the builds here are right I guess this one was built around Sep - Oct '70.

    Re: VIN Numbers

    1969 CJ5 vin 8305017 355584. I was told the engine was original. I assume the heads have a casting date code as do other GM engines visible when you remove the valve cover. I don't see a casting date code on the block, but it might be on the back behind the flywheel. Can anyone tell me where to look for evidence of the date of build?

    Sparky, thanks for the info. I did look at the Buick V6 casting numbers page a while back, but I did not notice (read) that the year and day of the year are stamped into the block. I will check it out and report my findings.

    Re: VIN Numbers

    Hey Sparky, I wonder if we could get everyone in the forum to list their CJ5's vehicle year and serial numbers from 1955-1983 and put them on a list. To get an idea of where we all stand as far as right year. I have looked on the lists you posted and although my title says 1962 it looks like it was manufactured in January of 1961 possibly sold as a 1962. My serial number is listed at the bottom of my posts.

    Thanks, Greg

    I hate to be a pain but, no, I doubt it. That's wayyyy too much work for me.

    There is a way it could be done using a Wiki that would lessen my load.

    The first and last time I tried it, it was a complete flop, no user participation.

    If someone wanted to collect the VINs and put them together that's fine but you'd have to take responsibility to keep updating the webpage as new ones came in...

    Not to be a stick in the mud, but with the rampant theft of VINs and selling stolen cars with bogus titles.. Do you think its a good idea to be posting VINs in a public forum?

    Re: VIN Numbers

    I own a 64 CJ5 with no VIN Plate. I only have a California DMV Number on it. It doesn't have the original motor or tranny. How can I find out what the origin of my jeep is? I know that it's been from California to Alabama to Texas, and now in Arkansas. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    taz
