Mary, the proper link for pre-1980 VINs (and more) can be found at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f238...tml#post445050
. But the pre-1980 pdf has a bigger problem -- it doesn't show the difference between Ohio & California VINs. So Safari65 can't count on any pdf.
Mary, you got it right that he is ready to use your http://www.airforums.com/forums/sendmessage.php
link to contact tech support for that name change!
Safari65 - I fully believe that InsideOut and flyfshr are giving you the correct recommendation. The broader resource that Shari linked in post 3 is Steve Dial's web page -- Vintage Airstream Photo Archives
-- look there for examples of other year VINs. More to the point -- look at the VIN in the link Shari gave you (emphasis on the red underlined area):
Your VIN of 22TS S0732 gives a sequential production number of 0732 - which falls between the 0630 and 0875 given in the attached image. And there are no similar 22TS S0732 VINs on Steve Dial's page. Does this mean 875 minus 630 = 145 Safaris produced at the California plant that year? The parenthetical remark in the image suggests 145 might be the number for both California Safaris & Flying Clouds together -- but others might give that a better guess.
So go ahead and send your message -- you've got a 62.
(what does the title call it anyway?) But I checked the database -- we've already got members with usernames 62Safari and Safari62. Available are either 62 Safari or Safari 62. Okay?
