    vin, vid, sni

    Here is a comparison of my vin#s

    69 title, 03-69* build date, vin# 942009782
    70 02-70 942096373
    72 07-71 772605728
    72 02-72 772814043
    72 07-72* 772926063

    * Means I checked the build date but the cars are not parked near me and can't double check them at the moment so I'm not 100% sure, build date is on the drivers door tag.

    so....built in 69 and 70 start with 94
    built in 71 and 72 start with 77

    only year I can't look at is 73 but the book said 71-75 so I don't know whats up with that 79 #. Are you certain it's 79, which place did you get the 79 from? Can you double check dash to cowl to door? Sometimes they are so hard to read clearly. Maybe by using production #s per year you can tell which year if only it was a 94 or a 77. Don't know what else to tell you, maybe we can solve this puzzle with the help of some more people and more number comparisons.

    Well, at leat now we know where model 79 comes from, does this mean it must be after March of 71? I think we are getting there!

    Go to the Opel Association of North America (OANA) site at:

    http://clubs.hemmings.com/frameset.cfm?club=oana

    click on the "Library" tab, and open the "Opel GT Identification Reference" or try this link (direct to the Adobe article)

    http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/...ch/GTYears.pdf

    Interesting about the "79" for non-USA (and Canada, since mine is a '71 with the "77"). First time I have read that.

    And the colour? Check out the following table, which may be just for North American cars (and I presume you are in Europe), which shows the 451 code as "Brilliant White" in 1969 (which doesn't go around with the "79" VIN, so perhaps that just refers to the first year the colour was available?):

    Also check out this link, which includes European codes:

    What year is this car?

    This information has been terrific! Looks like this is a late 72 model and the exterior color #529 corresponds to a Belgium color on the chart . The interior color 451 is black and there are some slight differences. Seats don't have perforations, door panels plainer and armrests smaller. Car is in Canada and needs lots of work. Thanks again, Frank
