Hi blokes just in the process of buying a torana, I've hit a problem
The numbers on the car match up with compliance plate (the one without paint trim etc)
But the vin tag doesn't match any numbers with compliance or the paint, trim tag
Are they meant too?
Is it possible for it to be registered without it matching?
Done vic vin check got no hits. needs 17 digits/letters apparently
Vin: 8231jh239493
Body:alj 08130b Matches on car But not on paint and trim tag
Any help is appreciated

Hi Riley the vin wont match number on the other tags. The body number on the inner left guard should match.

Your vin is missing a number, 82311jh239493 it should be..

Hi dude the tag near the wiper motor with chassis should match inner guard
any LC or LJ up-to the i think the 6 7 or 8 month 73 Body and Vin tag don't match
After this pearead the PSN changed, Body number and Vin numbers they do match

Thanks Adam and Richo, i was missing a number there and to answer both of you the guard and the tag match numbers.
But another thing is that on the last rego sticker there another Vin... well I beleive it to be a Vin

let's just say forget the Vin issue... will it still be registerable? is what im really getting at..

Hi Mate

No problems there. "S" Model 2 door, completed in Adelaide on 30/5/73 and sold by dealer 442 during July '73. The original 173 engine number was CD334254.

Cheers

That is a nice looking car you have mate. Do you have any idea what the name of the colour is? Or a paint code? It looks great!

Cheers

8 = General Motors Holden
C = level of luxury, in this case an SL
69 = 4 DOOR SEDAN
L = 202 6cyl engine
C (not G) = model year 1973
H2 = Brisbane (Acacia Ridge assembly plant)
281667 = the PSN production sequence number. The 2 in H2 is also the first digit of the PSN.
J = LJ series

The car should have 3 plates. The long skinny one on the right side of the rad support panel.
BTW that vin you have supplied should not be on a 2 door Torana. Or the car in question was a 4 door converted to a 2 door???
There should be a body ID plate on the left side of the rad support panel.
The body plate has the model number, body number, trim and paint codes and drivetrain options.
There should be a compliance plate on the plenum shelf up behind the master cyl and or brake booster.
The compliance plate has the ADR numbers, the month and year of manufacture and chassis number which must match the chassis number stamped in the left front wheelhouse panel.
The compliance plate will also state if the car is a 2 dr or 4dr sedan.

That VIN belongs to a 1973 LJ SL 202 4-door sedan. I think that the 6th digit should be a C, not a G.

The car should have 3 plates, the skinny VIN plate, the body ID plate & the ADR compliance plate.

If the chassis number on the compliance plate matches with the number stamped in the left wheel house panel then that is the most important thing for registration.

Forget about the skinny VIN tag, it doesn't belong to that car and should be removed.

Also, the Model number on the Body ID Plate should be 82311, if it is 82569 then that plate is also from the 4 dr SL.

The rivets in the VIN tag look to be original so I'm suspecting this 10/73 LJ 'S' 2dr has been repaired using at least the radiator support panel from a 4dr SL, possibly other panels like nose cone, fenders and bonnet from the 4dr SL were also used but that is pure conjecture.

Seeing as the person who repaired the car was obviously too lazy to remove the 4dr VIN tag and install the correct 2dr VIN tag I will assume the Body ID plate (if fitted) currently on the radiator support panel is also from the 4dr SL.

The good news is the Compliance plate and chassis number correlate.
