Default IHC VIN Decoder

Hey folks,

I (attempted) to add IHC VIN's to my pre-1981 VIN decoder site. Yeah I know an LST is a lot more useful than a VIN but nonetheless it was a fun project. So far I have it doing 13-digit VIN's for 1966-1980 light (Scout/Travelall/Pickup) and heavy (Loadstar/Transtar/Paystar/Fleetstar/Cargostar). Metrovan decoding is spotty since I couldn't dig up much info or sample VIN's for them. It's not 100% yet but its working pretty good.

Anyhow I hope someone finds it a useful resource

http://www.VINwiz.com (This is the current website, it used to be quick vin).

Hi Rich,

Pretty cool! As you know, your decoder will be pretty limited in the information it can provide for IHC products. I've been compiling a database of early Scout (1961-1971) Serial Numbers and now have about 250. I use it mainly to help determine the year of manufacture since that information is not always clear after 40-odd years.
Your decoder came close with my 1971 800B vin; listed the mfg date as Dec 1968.
I'll have to try out your decoder with my 1956 Ford vin and see how it works.

So far it only does 1966-1980 13-digit VINs. It doesn't know how to parse & decode older VINs yet (FC, SB, etc).

I just ran my '74, the decoder came back stating it came with a V8; but I know that's not the case. My LST shows the 258 L6 being stock. I'll check my '69 tomorrow to see how that one turns out.

Cool tool though, thanks for the hard work.

Thanks for the feedback. I fixed it. The 1973/1974 VIN format is almost exactly identical except for the 5th digit (well other than the digits that indicate the year). All 40 of my 73/74 sample VINs were from V8 vehicles. Finding VINs for 4 & 6-cylinder late-model Scouts is like trying to find chicken teeth.

My '74 VIN has a 5th digit of 0.

The '69 came back with an unknown. It is a '69 Scout 800A Doll-up Scout (aristocrat based on rlireland's VIN search thread) It has a 232-L6 which your vin program calls a gas. The start of the VIN is 784817G if that helps you any. I have the LST for it as well.

Thanks for the hard work, it's a good tool. I can see uses for it.

I just checked mine and the only issue is the 4th digit "an F", comes up as unknown. My truck is a travelette (crew cab) shortbed.

Thanks Robert. Its fixed. Sample Travelette VIN's were hard to come by. I had 4th digit "E" for 1973-1974 as Travelette Longbed. Looks like "F" must be the shortbed !
