What does the 1 mean in front of the VIN?
Thanks

1 is for Chevrolet. But there should be a 9 after the 1

The VIN derivative stamp on the side of the block has to be identical to the transmission VIN derivative stamp as they were both done at the same time with the same tool setup.

Axle is clearly a restamp.
Do you have a pic of the engine pad and trim tag?

This VIN derivative block stamp does not look to be normative practice.  If it is "possible" that it could happen some other way, then please enlighten me.

That block date suffix stamp is obviously not original.

There are some obvious issues with the stampings on this car.

But I will stick with what I said earlier.

For us less informed, can you show what a correct number looks like or state why it is wrong?
I would love to learn what to look for when it comes to the correct numbers and locations
Thanks for your comments

The block assembly date/suffix stamp surface has been altered to appear that it has broach marks.  Looks to me like a fresh stamping from the photo.  Just go find an old engine that is not collectable to see what they are supposed to look like.  Nobody ever re stamps a non-collectable engine.

The Engine and Transmission VIN derivative stamps were both done at the same time with the same tool as the 2 pieces were being prepared for installation on the factory assembly line.  If the two stamps do not match each other, it is unlikely they were stamped together in the usual way.  Add to that the missing digits, and it looks even more likely that one or both are not original. 

Folks around here are shy about giving too many details away but these are pretty obvious.

Thatís not always true. Your blanket statement is not 100% correct.

Did you buy this car advertised as an all original car and pay a premium price?
