I could have sworn I saw on the build and price app an option for Custom VIN selection. It was approx $5000. I don't see it now, was this discontinued?

Wonder how many, if any, were sold? I asked my salesman at MacMulkin, and he could not recall anyone ordering a custom VIN.

I can imagine someone on a budget deciding between a 3LT interior and a custom VIN.

Sure is still available, option code "PIN."

"PIN: Customer selectable VIN"

Only three ordered all of 2013, though haven not seen how many ordered this option during 2014.
Still $5,000.

I was serious about ordering a custom vin, to match the vin on my 65 coupe. When my dealer looked it up, $5,000 plus required museum delivery, $990 was out of the question.
It would have been nice to have matching cars 50 years apart.

$5000 for a custom VIN is NOT an option for me. That is definitely a "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" option.

Wanting to have your current VIN match the VIN of an older (classic) corvette appears to be the reason that one would want to do it. This is an explanation I found on another forum.

"For those people who either currently have or perhaps once had a Corvette classic and would like their newest family member to have a VIN similar, this allows one to so pick. But there are caveats as you might imagine the biggest being the order will not be unnecessarily picked early or held up to get the selected VIN and the customer is still charged whether getting the selected VIN or not. For example, if you own a Daytona Yellow 1967 Corvette whose VIN ends with 03721 you may want your Competition Yellow 2014 Stingray's VIN to endwith 03721 and this allows you to maybe have that happen.

This has been a feature in the Corvette retail ordering menu for two or three years now. I do not know how well it works."

Hi:

Is the only part of the customizable vin , the build sequence numbers? Or, are there other numbers allowed to be customized. I would think not as they woud have ref. to other things such as engine code and colour code and trim option etc etc which would not have been of signifigance back in the day unless to a particular car. Follow? For something that is non labour intensive or parts usage that is a pretty rich option. I wonder what my 1970 Vettes vin # was? oh well, too late now anyway. I have my 78s and my 09s, but not the 70s.

STUNG:cool:
