I posted this over g6performance, figured I'd post here too.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) plate is the legal identifier of the vehicle. The VIN plate is located on the upper LH corner of the Instrument Panel and can be seen through the windshield from the outside of the vehicle:


The VIN is a 17 digit sequence of numbers and letters.
I'll break it down and list each option so you can decode your own VIN.

1) Country of Origin
1 = U.S.A.

2) Manufacturer
G = General Motors

3) Make
2 = Pontiac

4/5) Carline/Series
Z/F= Pontiac SE,
Z/G = Pontiac SE1,
Z/H = Pontiac GT,
Z/M =Pontiac GTP.

6) Body Style

5 = Sedan, 4-DR, 4-WDO Notch Back ( F69, G69, H69, M69)

1 = Coupe 2-DR (M37, H37)

3 = 2-DR Convertable (M67, H67)

7) Restraint System.
2 = Active Manual Belts W/Driver and Passenger Inflatable Restraint System Frontal
2 = Front Airbags only for 2005 model
4 = Front/Side Airbags for 2005 model
5 = Front Airbags only with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 mode
6 = Front/seat thorax with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 model (convertible only)
7 = Front/seat thorax/roof rail with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 model


8 ) Engine
B = 2.4L, L4 (LE5 RPO)
8= 3.5L , V6 (LX9 RPO)
1 = 3.9L, V6 (LZ9 RPO)

9) Check Digit
Check Digit

10) Model Year
5 = 2005
6 = 2006
7 = 2007
(since 2001 Model year GM has gone back to using Numbers for vin year code, previously was alphabetized)

11) Plant Location
4 = Orion, MI. USA

12-17) Plant Sequence Number
6 digit Plant Sequence Number

IE: 007245 would be the Seven thousandth, two hundredth, and fourty fifth car built that year. Obviously if you have 000001 You have the first car built from that plant for that model year of that vehicle.

Thanks - only update I have is that the Restraint system digit has different values depending on whether you have side airbags or not. In fact there are different codes between 2005 and 2006 model because 2006 added the Passenger Airbag suppression system:

2 = Front Airbags only for 2005 model
4 = Front/Side Airbags for 2005 model



Starting in 2006 there are different codes for if you have roof rail, seat thorax or any combination of them:

5 = Front Airbags only with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 mode
6 = Front/seat thorax with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 model (convertible only)
7 = Front/seat thorax/roof rail with Passenger Airbag suppression for 2006 model



And out in 2007 model I bet there are new engine codes ;)

Yeah.. I knew there were more, Oddly in Service info the only one listed for options was 2.
Was going to look into that today further.

I'll update the main list. Thanks.
