How can I decode vin #

I have a 1968 camaro and im trying to figure out what it was originally. It has a four speed tranny but i want to know if it was a stock four speed or just added down the line. The gas, break, & clutch pedals all look original. I know it was a stock v8 car but what do i look for in the vin # to figure out what model it is thank you

Re: How can I decode vin #

No way to tell that from the VIN.

Not much on the 68 cowl tag to tell model either.

Check the transmission for a partial VIN to see if it matches the car. Here are the codes. You will have to scroll down.

Does the transmission have an aluminum case or cast iron case?

You can also check the firewall to see where the speedometer comes out. Location for a Muncie 4 speed is different than others.

68 Camaro SS 396 - 468 BBC now, M21, 12 bolt 3.73 coded housing but w/ 3.31 gears.
Looking for 68 Camaro with body number NOR 181016
