    I wanted to know what the 12763 meant in the VIN number.

    This is my friends Jeep and we are trying to figure it out.

    He has a title for it saying it is a '64.:?


    Thanks for the information. :)

    There is not much info in early Jeep VIN numbers. Prefix tells what model it is. 12763 is just the sequential serial number. Did you look at the VIN document and the other link? 8322 12763 was built October 1964 so would be 1965 model year. Model year production change usually happened in August or September.

    See this:

    http://www.film.queensu.ca/cj3b/Photos/SerialNumbers/SerialNosMonthly6365.gif

    If he's got a valid title for it, I wouldn't worry if it said 1964 instead of 1965.

    I'll have to see if I have any other info, but 280142 is June 1971
    and that's the closest I can come. Did you go through the thread to see if anyone has posted a serial number close to yours? Sorry I'm not more help, but I'll have to dig to see if I have any later info.

    Re: serial number help

    Did you look at the VIN document linked on the first page of this thread? I think 56242 would make it a 1957 model year vehicle.

    Re: VIN Numbers

    My CJ5 is registered as a 67, with Ser# ending with 352316, but with these numbers above by Zoomer, looks like I've got a 69. That would clear up a lot of questions about some of the extras I have on mind that weren't on a 67.

    Hi.
    I just got a kaiser jeep which I cannot understand if is either a CJ5 or 6 or even the year that it was made. I wonder if someone can help me finding this. My father bought the jeep in 94 to the portuguese army and got tired of fixing minor problems so he just gave it to me. On the jeep documents it just says : model: jeep and licence plate year is 94... which it isn't definetely. My confusion is the following. According to the serial number : 8305 210070 AA. I can only decipher the prefix 83 which means it should be a cj5. the rest doesnt make much sense following the pdf paper. The other problem is that on the other side of the serial number plate I have a plate saying model CJ6.

    I was thinking for sure that it was a cj6 until right now that I am finding in the sites to order parts that 83 prefix is a cj5!I should be making same confusion. If someone can help me identifying the model and the year I would apreciate.I can send pictures if it helps

    Thank you

    luis
