Are you certain about that VIN?
5th character should be a letter.

Gary- Alex, Thanks very much for the help. Helps to know where you are before you decide where to go. Also, do you know of a source for parts. I'm going to need the left side fender 390 chrome emblem and the right side headlight chrome cover? Thanks
