Sorry I don't know a lot about running VIN numbers, usually I use the Corvette Black Book that I purchase from the NCM Store, that gets me pretty close. There are some guys here that can get you right on the money with the VIN numbers though.
I just wanted to welcome you to CAC! There are a lot of really nice and knowledgeable people here. I hope you enjoy using the site. :s I've found I spend a lot of time here lately. Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day.
Check out our Specification pages. Click the link in the upper right hand corner. Some of the specification pages are done for the '68-'82 models. The 1980 model year is complete if your looking for VIN information on your Vette.
Thank you to all for your imput! I did find the information I needed on my 1980. I am also thinking about buying a 1968 big block so if anyone has any suggestions on running VIN #'s for this year I will take any suggestions. Once again thanks for welcoming me to the site, it's a great site!!
1959 black 270hp (9/2/69) 1981 Beige L81(10/20/80)

"67" is for convertible ("37" would be coupe)
"8" the sixth digit is the last digit of the model year
