Note: This VIN decoder is a bit out-dated so if it doesn't work for your vehicle, just use the Ford one.

Here is a little help on decoding that VIN.



VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number. It is a 17-digit sequence of letters and numbers that is basically your vehicle's serial number. It is unique to your vehicle. No other vehicle in the world will have the same VIN. It can be found at the front of the dash on a metal plate, visible through the windshield on the driver's side. As well, it is also found on the door sticker on the driver's side door jamb.

Note: Every attempt has been made to include complete, accurate information. This page contains Ford truck related VIN information.
