Chevelle vin problem

Home  \  Classic Cars  \  Chevelle vin problem

Hey guys I am having a problem figuring out this vin number as you can see from my name I am a pontiac guy always dealt with GTOs but I just purchased a 72 chevelle big block 454 I am trying to figure out if it is a true chevelle SS or just a malibu clone or even if the motor is matching # or not I doubt it. I dont know much about chevelles but the car was to good to pass up so its time to learn a little. So any information would be appreciated guys I tried to find a website but I spent the last 2 hours getting more confused. Thanks in advance for your help.

Vin number is 1D36F2B632333

I think the 1 =chevy and D= malibu if I am not mistaken just have no idea what the hell the rest means

adamc44--beat me to it I was going to also send you there --- very good chevelle site...

here's what I come up with:

1 Division 1 - Chevrolet Motor Division
2-3 Model Series invalid
4-5 Body Style invalid
6 Year 2 - 1972
7 Assembly Plant B - Baltimore, Maryland
8-13 Sequence Build Number 632333 - Sequential Build Number

the 2nd & 3rd number should be:

33 Chevelle/El Camino, Inline 6 Cylinder
34 Chevelle/Greenbrier/El Camino, 8 Cylinder

the 4th & 5th numbers should be (not sure which one belong to the chevelles, so here is all the 2 dr codes):

11 2-Door Sedan
27 2-Door Sport Coupe
37 2-Door Sport Coupe
47 2-Door Sport/Custom Coupe
57 2-Door Sport Coupe
