How to verify a vin number?

I was looking at buy a 69 GTO. The guy gave me the vin, which is only 13 characters. I thought it was 17 characters, but I could be wrong. How can I verify it's the correct VIN?

13 characters is correct.
For starters, if it's a hardtop, the vin should start 242379. 2 - pontiac, 42 - GTO, 37 hardtop(67 for convertible) and 9 - 1969

The first 37 is lemans (should be 42 for a GTO) and the 8 is the year, '68. Have you seen it? Do you have a link to e-bay or craigslist?

It's a '68 Lemans with a GTO hood that someone installed aftermarket hood pins. GTOs nor Lemans had pins. The rear tail lights are Lemans. and so is the engine. '68 GTOs came with 400s. Looks like someone was in the process of cloning it into a GTO. Most GTOs had an endura bumper like mine. Some did have chrome. Lemans had chrome.

I wanted a GTO, but I don't mind getting a LeMans. I just want to tell people I got something that it's not.
