G.M. of Canada through their Vintage Vehicle Services department are able to provide vehicle build info such as rpo's, original engine id numbers, production date, trim and paint codes, production numbers and engineering specifications on all Canadian built or sold Impalas, Chevelles, Corvettes etc.
This applies if the plant code in your vin is the number 1, if it is a letter like B for Baltimore we probably would not have the info.
In general we have, as available, option content, shipping and/or production date, selling dealer name or code, trim and paint codes, production numbers for that model at our plants, producing plant, engine size and HP and most engine ID stamping codes, mvma or engineering specifications, and some promo material from the current day.
Data varies according to model year and normal turn around time in fall and winter is 2-3 weeks, in spring and summer it can run 4-5 weeks. If someone is buying a car and needs to know the same day we can fax just the option (rpo) list on the vehicle so they know if it is legitimate or fake, it's is a $69.55 charge to fax this, with the rest of the package following in the normal time frame.
If the vin number has a letter in the middle it is U.S. built so it is doubtful we would have any info unless it was originally sold in Canada. If the vin has the number 1 it is usually a Canadian built car and we should have info on it. If we have no info then there is no charge.
On current day product we can provide the same info going back 8 years on all new cars, Canadian or U.S. sold or built. This includes 1993 and newer Camaro, Firebird and Corvette models
Note that on modern product we have no U.S. production numbers.
