The VIN number gives you an indication of where your SSR fits in the production sequence. Really low numbers are an indication that yours was an early build, and knowing the VIN # might be of value if a problem can be isolated to a particular sequence.

One example - the first 1250 or so had a potential issue with the hinge mechanism for the tonneau lid, and several have been replaced

Another interesting factoid - the SSR will have sequential serial numbers for its entire build life - no other vehicle, including the Corvette, has that distinction.

In my case, I've always had an attraction to the 55 - 57 Chevies, especially the Nomads, and I have several friends who were members of the now defunct 567 club. So - they think I have a pretty cool serial number. I haven't tracked it down exactly, but based on a 70 unit/day production, mine was probably built on the 8th day of production, possibly later if early production was at less units/day.

yes

Sure would be nice if they would crack the books open, so we could know our birthdates.

Couple more questions

Flashh... Thanks...

Your great answer above brings up another question. When you do find out the VIN, where can you go to find out if there are any posible defects or considerations? Is there a list or database?

But I'm probably going to buy new. Am I correct in assuming the VIN doesn't enter into the equation, or is there still a significance?

Last question: Will there be an '06 production for the SSR?

Thanks again for your responses.
