1966 SS Chevelle-Vin Location ?

did they stamp partial(beginning)vins on the trunk?
I know sheet metal had date stamps on them.
Some guy in fb(lol)advertising a TRUE SS,no vin tag,cowl tag,or title,lol.
Says it has a 138xx stamp on the trunk corner.

Re: 1966 SS Chevelle-Vin Location ?

Found something in a search on here.Looks like that number stamp isnt dependable for IDing,but there is one ontop of the frame back there.
Was just curious,not looking to purchase this car.

I believe the 13817 number was stamped in the SS quarters to differentiate them from other quarters - holes punched for the Super Sport 1/4 emblems as opposed to Malibu, etc.

Mine is stamped on the trunk where the rubber molding fits the lid. Was for id ing the SS parts vs the malibu. (think emblems)
It is also stamped on the drivers side frame rail just aft of the rear tire. You need a mirror to see it with the tire on.

Re: 1966 SS Chevelle-Vin Location ?

Found along the inner lip of the rear quarter panel, not actually a partial VIN but believed to be associated with the series/model ID due to differences between the Malibu and SS396 rear quarter panel piercing for emblem placement. This stamped number is located on the right rear quarter panel where the trunk lid meets the body next to the weather stripping material. While both 136xxxx stampings have been found on SS and non-SS Chevelles and 138xxxx stampings have been found on SS and non-SS Chevelles, those cases are rare and could be attributed to many things such as panel replacement from another Chevelle. The series/model identification is followed by another 2-digit number. These two digits indicate the calendar week the panel was stamped. (Courtesy Jeff Helms)

Check the week stamp, it could be a replacement from a salvage yard as well from long ago.
