Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Just for fun check to see if you find any Blazers with a build sequence starting with a 8. Line 2 builds started with 6 and line 1 builds started with 8. (1971 Flint) I'm curious to see if all the Flint blazers were built on line 2 or both lines. I don't have any blazer SPIDs 1971 Flint that the sequence number starts with 8, but you might.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

I'm relying on those examples documented on the Blazer SPID thread. All of the 71 MY Flint built examples begin with 6 - there are no 8s to date.

I'll check the thread for Jimmy SPIDs and will post back if there are any Flint examples from 71.

Blazers were built on Flint Line 2 only.

Line 1 was specific to pickups.

Re: GMC and Chevrolet VIN and Model Number Decoders with pics.

Recently picked up a 1969 GMC K2500 and i was wondering what the X in the VIN stands for? On the VIN decoder it says that space should be a dash or a special designation. Thanks for the help!

The VIN tag on the cab has the dash. The X must have been a default letter for the dash in the printing system.

Jay, So your vin does not have a special destination code, as the VIN plate is the definitive answer. The X on your SPID is unusual and most likely a assembly line mistake. The VINs on the SPID, were printed at a different time from the printing on the rest of the SPID. So who ever printed the VIN on your SPID put a X where a space should have been. I don't know why or how but it's a mistake. Other 1969 GMC SPIDS from St. Louis got it right.(space, no X) Kind of a cool anominaly that makes no difference at all. And it took 50 years for someone to catch the mistake.
