Does this Vin jive to the body tag?

Hi, I am looking at this car and it seem like the vin of 105675W214572, does not totally Jive to the body tag of: build date 03A, and second line of vin of: 65-10567 WRN 12396.

Thoughts please.

Thank you

That looks to be a fairly late serial number and the 03A could be in 1966 at the end of 65 production!

Yes, it appears completely normal.


The 03A is the 1st week of March, 1965

Production extended for many more months with the oldest trim tag in my collection being from 07C (3rd week of July 1965).

The VIN ending in 214572 would have been built in March.

GM VIN reporting shows the Month of March 1965 produced VIN range ending in 212974 through 230679.

So a 1st week build falls right into place.

Rick has it absolutely correct, as usual.

My 65 Corsa is a 1st week of March build, and is vin# 213608. So, mine is an early in the week build, Dan's would be a late week.
