This weekend I hauled my 1968 Impala convertible home and without further adieu began putting a wrench to it. It has a number-matching 396 and TH400. I'm looking forward to learning a lot about the car and this website has already been a great resource for information.
Does anyone know how to get a VIN decoded? I have not been able to locate the build sheet. Thanks again!
Post all but the last six digits (those are the sequential numbers that makes your number unique) and we can decode it for you. The cowl tag on the firewall will have more information than the VIN tag does and if posted we can also decode that for you.
Welcome and congratulations! If you wish, post the VIN here. The VIN will only tell you what body style, the factory it was built at, and the approximate time in the model year it was built. ( Whether its an early or later build) The cowl tag on the firewall will give more info such as the month and week built, the top and bottom colors, and the interior color, whether bench or buckets. It wont tell what engine or options it had unless it was a Canadian built car.
It looks to be a late in the model year build since it starts with 2. The letter before that tells the assembly plant. Other than that, we know its a convertible from your picture. That's all we can tell from the VIN #. In 1967 and older, the Super Sport had it's own VIN #, different from a standard Impala. Don S
