    I got this off of the Vin tag on the left side of the firewall,It is also on my registration slip. I thought it was a bit strange.

    Greg try right-clicking on the red X, then select "show picture" a couple times. I don't know how else to get the pic to you. I'm frustrated with this new *&$@ing server. These pics always showed before. :mad:

    It has nothing to do with the server. The forum software has a safety function to prevent linking to things that are not images. The address you supplied seemed suspicious to it.

    Second, just use the attachment option...

    Re: VIN Numbers

    I am really suprised of all the information on the internet that the production numbers and serial numbers for the years are not out there for the 1967/1968-1975 jeeps. Has anyone ever went to a dealership for this kind of information?

    I have the books that will break down any serial number from my dad's dealer days, 1966-1998
    dealers weren't privy to production numbers and in what years; that was corporate info, probably closely held; once the vins changed in '72, year ID and how many made was no problem; 72 and later is easy; 71 and prior is harder; seems to me the feds mandated the VIN number changes

    Re: VIN Numbers

    After looking several reported dates of manufacture from different people here, there appears to be some discrepancies but a definite trend exisits. From what appears to be sequential, here is a summary of some '69 - '71 VIN numbers:

    350759 month not reported, year '69
    352694 month not reported, year '69
    355972 month not reported, year '69
    361782 mine - supposedly a '70 model probably manufactered in Sept/Oct of '69
    362377 month not reported, year '69
    362713 October '69
    362377 month not reported, year '69
    363463 December '69
    364613 March '70
    366671 August '70
    369673 November '70
    370390 January '71
    373590 Month not reported, year '71
    374265 April '71

    Supposedly 13,518 CJ's built in '70 according to one source.

    Maybe some other people with 69-71's could help fill this in?

    Re: VIN Numbers

    My 1967 Cj5 is 224088. I think it was made in Nov 1966, according to some documents I saw on the net. Built late 66 sold as a 67? Who knows.

    Strangely it still has the single line master cylinder, which should have went out in 66, new 2 line in 67. This reinforces my opinion.

    Also, the front and rear diff/ring gears are date stamped Oct 66 which also seems to fit.

    As for VIN on the frame, it is also on top of the pass side frame directly above the rear axle tube, but you gotta have the tub off to see it.

    Re: VIN Numbers

    Does anyone know if they had model years back in the late '60's, early '70's like they do today? By this I mean, Model Year '70 could have been built between about September '69 and August '70, or did they do it more by the actual calendar year?

    Re: VIN Numbers

    My '66's VIN is 8305A 203065 which I think was built in Nov. '65 although the original ID tag on the carb is dated for Dec. '65. Who knows though if the carb is original to this Jeep or not; I think it is though. Also, this tub still has the second battery lid on the cowl and hood with the snorkel cutout which I thought was supposed to have been eliminated a year or two earlier.

    My 224088 does not have the snorkel cutout or cowl battery box. It has the electric top mounted wipers and single line master cylinder.

    Sounds like a repair from when m38a1 sheet metal was cheap.
