3 / Make / C = Chevrolet Truck
4 / GVWR - Brake System / E = 6001 - 7000 HYD Brakes
5 / Truck Line - Chassis Type / S = Sm Conventional Cab - 4x2
6 / Series / 1 = 1/2 Ton
7 / Body Type / 4 = Two Door Cab

9 / Check Digit
10 / Model Year / 5 = 2005

It appears the VIN itself does not identify which tranny is present (auto vs manual).
I compared my 2005 SSR automatic tranny VIN with this service manual decode and it seems to make sense (minus the info for the tranny).
