Re: what year?

'78 - '80 the vin changed in '81 I believe. I think you got some of it wrong though...

• First digit is GM Division: 1 = Chevrolet
•Second digit is model: Q = Sport Coupe, Rally Sport, and Z28, S = Type LT
• Digits 3 & 4 are body type: 87 = 2dr. coupe
•Fifth digit is engine code: D = 250ci, L = 350ci, U = 305ci
•Sixth digit is model year: 8 = 1978
•Seventh digit is N for Norwood assembly, L for Van Nuys.
•Last six digits increased one with each car built at each plant.

Re: what year?

Urethane bumpers = '78-'81
Rear glass = pre '75
VIN (incomplete) = pre '81

Re: what year?

Based on the rear window, the car is probably 70-74. The front and rear bumpers have been modified. I only say that as it is a huge undertaking to go from wrap around rear glass to the flat style glass.

Here is my 76 that I modified the front valance/bumper.

I have seen late model 2nd gens modified to look like 70-73 models to include front and rear bumpers and the rear glass.

Re: what year?

I agree it is a 74 or earlier car. Why anyone would want to add the urethane bumpers to an older car is beyond me.

Re: what year?

Depending on what is wrong or missing from the VIN of course but currently it is suggesting '76... Seems like a car to stay away from to me!
