After pulling my fuel tank, I found this #310 written on the back of the body.

That's the build/job number. It has no significance outside of the St. Louis assembly plant, and is not related to the VIN.

Mine was a 500 build.

It's also written on the entry doors, inside the interior panels, and on the firewall (engine side) underneath the heater box.

Your job number might be related to your VIN. Add 500 to it. Does your VIN end in 810?

FWIW: You will likely find the 310 on the lower right side of the cowl where it will be visible from the front of the car. Also likely to show up on the passenger's toe kick or even the tranny tunnel.

No.. #00308...Close to 310 though

Thanks for the info. From the little research I have been able to do, there is usually no correlation between the job number and the VIN on earlier cars. Some later car owners have confirmed job numbers which are 500 less than the last three digits of the VIN.
