vin code tag,previous owner search


I just purchased a supposed 1966 Chevelle SS car and I would like to try and find out who the previous owners are.I know that that people have told me to go to Cars dot com. but this car only has 12 numbers and 1 letter which cars dot com need evidently 17 vin numbers.Can anyone help me find out how to research this vehicle?? It would be greatly appreciated.

Re: vin code tag,previous owner search

First, it's easy to tell if it's a SS or not, the VIN should start with 13817 or 13867. If it starts with 136xx, it's not an SS. There is a database here on TC where some members have provided information but you must be a member (I think) to access it. You might post the VIN and I'm sure a member will look it up to see if it was registered.

If you bought the car locally, it's POSSIBLE your insurance company may be able to find out its history. A long shot, but possible.

Re: vin code tag,previous owner search


Hi Dale,

Thanks for the info,you answered one of the questions already......it has a 136 first portion of the vin code.....so it's a clone.Now as far as researching the previous owner's how can "I" do that is there a way so I don't bother other people with my problems but I do appreciate anything that can be done.
This car came from Las Vegas,the person I
bought it from lives in Malibu Calif. so God only knows where it came from and who owned it.It
is a "Race Car" 8 point cage,Dana 60 rear with 4 link,and it is really straight but I would like to find out who owned it mainly because the motor and trans that are in the car are not what it is supposed to be.

Thanks Dale for your help,
Denny.
P.S. I am a member.....hahahaha a new one but still a member.
