Hi all,

Although I have been into Mopars for many years, I am a 300C newbie (had mine for just over a week now!).:fing02:

I have deciphered my VIN number, although I can't find a reference in the material I have for the 5th digit in the VIN number. :confused:

I understand that the 5th digit represents the "Vehicle Line", and that this should be a letter of the alphabet - either A, K, R, V, or Z?

Mine is a number - "9" -any ideas what this deciphers to?

I am used to more simple VIN/body numbers found on Valiants!!

Cheers

Jeez that's wierd. I checked the service manual and sure enough vcval's right. It should be one of the letters he's pointed out for the vehicle line. The only thing I can gather from that is the 9 represents the Aussie Spec 300. My guess is all of you will have the same thing.

Thanks for that!

As a follow up question - what does "BUX" mean?

Cheers
