Default Re: Cool VIN search Site

I have the spec sheets with vins on 5 other 03 Yukon XL with Quadrasteer,plus i Chev and I YukonXL with out QS. All came up with "only 2 made with same equipment".
Either the calculations are flawed or some of those obscure codes are sales or zone codes that make the configuration unique. If anyone had a fleet vehicle where they knew of a particular RPO unique to that fleet,would be interesting to see how it calculates. Anyone have a used Cop car that their city or state used?

I ran the VIN from my '94 ex OPP LT1 Caprice and it said it was 1 of 91 built. My '03 Silverado was 1 of 3 and my '97 454 2500 Suburban was 1 of 4.

You have a way with words Multi-mopar. Maybe you think is cool to throw around dirty words on whatever site you crawled here from. But there are many people that do not need to read that stuff here...BKH

MultiMopars:

The B^##$--t mathematical process you are referring to is called "extrapolation". It is not dead on accurate but it will get you very close to the actual number. Actually, about as close as you can get without all of the data or guessing. FYI, Ed

Sorry if the language bothered some, but I have seen much worse here.


I don't know HOW you can even use it since it is not sub-model specific. All you can do is get a % of for e.g. ALL Coronets. So if you have a Super Bee, R/T, or /6 it IS the number for ALL of them.

It won't BEGIN to zero in on a particular car.

Your inquiry make sense at its is likely that 91 identical 9C1 Chev Caprices got delivered to the same sales Zone or even the same dealer,having all been built at the same plant.
The smaller number on the various trucks submitted could also be correct if one of the RPO codes is a sales Zone code.
I took a few serial numbers from some Impalas and Caprices for sale on ebay and came up with realistic numbers,such as 24 similar Impalas sold in the Chicago suburb area.
