Question Bizarre serial number...

I've never seen a '71 Chevelle serial number which looks like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Chevro...QAAOSwu95dR5u3 …It's a '71 Chevelle with serial # 3215082437 . Usually, '71 serial numbers begin with "13436" or "13637", etc…but not "32150" like this one. Has someone here ever seen a serial number like this one?

Re: Bizarre serial number...

Blow up the picture of the block stamp. You can read the serial number there. Also, do the trim tag while you're at it.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Mmmm… Block stamp is almost unreadable… "...50PD…?" and maybe "11F…?" and can't read the rest. I'm not too good at decoding these numbers probably because I never paid any attention to them.

Re: Bizarre serial number...

Not a Chevelle VIN, either an error or seller just didn't want the correct VIN known.

Re: Bizarre serial number...

That car appears to be legit. 13637 on cowl tag, can't make out block vin. They entered an incorrect vin in the description. Call him, sure he'll give it to you unless it's hot. Ask him for a copy of the build sheet. I would like to add it to the collection. I wonder why he did not add a photo of the build sheet.

It would be a nice car to restore. Almost all the correct parts appear to be intact.

I'm will to bet a nickel to a dollar that the VIN is actually his phone number. 321 is area code for Brevard County, Florida.

Re: Bizarre serial number...

I see xxxx5CPD and 11R104xxx on the deck which would make it an August 1970 build 1971 Arlington car. Trim Tag shows an Arlington (R) vehicle built 08C for the third week of August. That 3215082437 looks like some bogus filler number and is not the VIN fwiw.

That number is the seller's telephone number in Flo-da.
