If you're trying to "decode" the VIN on your '75, just click on the "Research" button at the top of the pages....then scroll down to "Automatic Corvette VIN Decoder".

Welcome to C3VR, too!!

Not sure I'm understanding the term "formula", but I'll try...and since this is a  '68 - '82 Corvette site, I'll do that.

For '68-'71
1 = Chevy Motor Division
9 = Corvette
4 = V8 engine
67/37 = Convertible/Coupe
6th digit = last number of year model
S = St. Louis
XXXXXX =sequential build/serial number(including a "check" digit as the first character)

For '72 - '80
1Z = Chev Corvette 
67/37 = Convertible/Coupe(87 beginning in 1978 for coupes)
5th digit = Engine type(LT1, L82, etc)
6th digit = last number of model year(except 1980, which used the letter "A")
S = St. Louis
XXXXXX = Build number(including a "check" digit as the first character)


Is this what you are looking for? If not, please be a little more specific as to what info it is your are trying to ascertain.

OK, the 17 VIN decoder has character Weights and a Transliteration Key...

VIN ----- 1 M 8 G D M 9 A _ K P 0 4 2 7 8 8

Transliteration key: values for VIN Decoding
A
:1 B:2 C:3 D:4 E:5 F:6 G:7 H:8 J:1 K:2 L:3 M:4
N
:5 P:7 R:9 S:2 T:3 U:4 V:5 W:6 X:7 Y:8 Z:9

Value -- 1 4 8 7 4 4 9 1 _ 2 7 0 4 2 7 8 8

Weight --- 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 10 _ 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2

Products 8 28 48 35 16 12 18 10 (CKD) 18 56 0 24 10 28 24 16

What is the "Weights" and "Transliteration Key" formula for the 13 Digit VINs?

Any one know?

Thnx, Oz

If you are just trying to find an algorithm to determine if a 13-digit vin is VALID like a 17-digit vin has, you won't find one.  They didn't start doing that until the 17-digit one came into use.

So there is no way to get a vin report on my 1978 corvette because it has a 13 character vin correct?
