VIN number to production number

Recommended Posts

How would I know which production number a 1988 Avanti is from the VIN number?

You won't. Avanti Motors was still assigning an "R" number for internal inventory purposes. The 17-digit VIN was federally mandated for registration purposes and replaced the previous serial number systems for all manufacturers. I believe your '88 would have an "RBKxxxx" production number. According to John Hull's book 1988 models started with RBK0200 and ended with RBK0379.

If you can get a copy of the production order, it may provide that "RBK" number. You might also check the ID plate or sticker on the door jamb...that might provide it as well.

It will be the last three digits of the VIN sequentially up starting with 200. I am doing this from memory as I am at the SDC Convention inRI.
