thanks for your help
vin # 136379K333746 or any back ground info this vin gives
1367 should be 13637 for a hardtop.
Kan is Kansas City assembly plant
1358-7 is a data processing number assigned to the body - no significance now.
TR 791 is Aff Parchment Coated Fabric bucket seats
Looks like a vinyl-topped hardtop. The "E" would be the top color (Parchment vinyl top) and as noted above, there should be a 2-digit number for the lower body color.
10D is October, 4th week for body assembly
01654 is another data processing number for tracking
indicate it's a SS car. Most Kansas-built 69s with the letter "L" here have been SS cars - but so far it's not absolute proof.
VIN doesn't tell much that isn't already known. 13637 is a Malibu V8 2-dr hardtop, 9 is the model year, K is the assembly plant and 333746 is the vehicle sequence number. The KC plant started numbering of 69 Chevelles with 300001 so this on is the 33,746th 69 Chevelle from the KC plant - fairly low as also indicated by the late October (1968) built date.
