    Thanks; my first tag for a 1974 Plymouth wagon! The sales code list suggests this car was ordered with the A08 Luxury Equipment Package, plus a Tilt-And-Telescope Steering Wheel to top it off:

    119294 = Vehicle Order Number
    121446 = Sequential Production Number
    38 = Quality Controller Stamp
    928 = Scheduled Production Date: September 28, [1973]
    C58 = 50/50 Bench Seat
    D34 = TorqueFlite Automatic, 3-Speed
    E85 = Engine 440-Cubic-Inch, 4-Barrel V-8
    END = End of Sales Codes
    G11 = Glass, Tinted, All Windows
    G63 = Mirror Remote Control, Right Outside
    G8L3 = Vinyl Split-Back Bench Seat w/Center Armrests; Parchment
    H51 = Air Conditioning - Manual Controls
    KJ6 = Body & Roof Color: Avocado Gold
    KL2 = Upper Door Frame Color: Light Parchment
    L21 = Cargo Compartment Light
    L31 = Fender Turn Signal Indicators
    L81 = Door Ajar Lamp
    M15 = Bright Upper Door Frames
    M91 = Luggage Rack, Roof
    M95 = Assist Handles
    N88 = Automatic Speed Control
    N95 = Emission Control System and Testing [California]
    P31 = Power Windows
    P41 = Power Door Locks
    P44 = Auto Lock Tailgate
    PP45 = Plymouth Sport Suburban; 2 Rows
    S61 = Steering Wheel Tilt and Telescope w/Rim-Blow Horn
    T4D = 440 cid Engine; 1974 Model Year; Belvidere Assembly Plant
    U = US Market

    Amazing, the Premier Wheel Covers included in the A08 package are still there!

    From 15 until 23 September, 1973, Chrysler was hit by a union-lead strike. As the scheduled production date is September, 28, it would be interesting to see what the door sticker's MDH says.

    VINs are unrelated to production...I do wish decoders would correct this error.

    Then we should promote an alternative term, like Sequential Identification Number.

    We have a term...the neutral term Vehicle Identification Number. The word 'sequential' needs to be disassociated due to connotation that the numbers were assigned sequentially and to remove the confusion that cars were built sequentially. VINs are a counting number (car one, cars two, car three), not order numbers (first, second, third). Emphasis and implications are placed on a number that may not exist.

    I've seen the pictures of this car before and I have seen the video. This car is what I dream of finding one day. Unfortunately I keep finding Chrysler Town and countrys.

    In general usage a VIN includes the codes for car line (P), price class (P), body style (45), engine (T), model year (4) and plant (D), so that would make two meanings for "VIN".


    I understood from a previous post that they indeed were assigned sequentially. That was the post where you explained how the car paper work for a certain Scheduled Production Date was sorted by make (and possibly some other secondary criteria), stacked and then each car is assigned a number.

    Absolutely!

    "Plant-Assigned Identification Number".

    Every plant did its own numbering. When Newark switched from C- to A-bodies in January 1974, the A-body numbers continue where the C-body numbers had arrived (around 160000).

    "Assembly-Assigned Identification Number" (AAIN)
    "Plant-Specific Identification Number" (PSIN)
    "Assembly-Specific Identification Number" (ASIN)
