I need help decoding some numbers on my 1970 GTO!!

Hi Everybody,
Newbie here again (i first posted a few weeks ago), but anyway, I wanted to know if anyone can help me decipher a few numbers on my 1970 GTO that I just took delivery (in Denver Colorado) today from Georgia!!!!!!!!!!
It came without data plate or vin tag, so I'm left piecing together what little info I have about it so I can compile a vin and send it out to PHS for specs.
I found a few numbers stamped on the firewall exterior beneath the A/C-heater box that read like this: (firewall at right of a/c hole: 733), (firewall below heater blower hole: 2A 37), (firewall above a/c hole: 1A 38), (dashboard steel frame at top center of dashboard: 1792X36), (rear axle: 9799100), (frame behind rear driver side wheel: PARISH 6263667 313711). Does anybody know what any or all of these codes mean? I'm just looking to piece together a correct vin. Thanks and Happy New Year!!!

By the way, does anyone know if all 1970 Judges were assembled at the same plant?

Shouldn't have a vin number on the frame? I think somewhere under the driver door, and it will be on top of the frame. So unless the body is off you'll need a mirror to read it.

1970s were built at several plants. Baltimore, Arlington, and some other places.

why did you buy a car with no vin tag or data plate??? and how can you register it? does your state do vin checks from out of state cars?? How do you know its a Judge?? only the vin can tell you- what did the person write on the bill of sale?? hate to raise the red flags BUT you might be getting burned- I dont think any of those numbers of codes are vin related seem like they are part numbers but I could be mistaken

Once you find your VIN # and research it, I think you are going to find your Vin in use on a different vehicle. probably on a cloaned Lemans. Georgia and Alabama are bill of sale states, so if you can get a Vin tag, you can register it. My 66 Cloan came out of Georgia, vin tag pop riveted on with steel rivits, and no data tag under the hood, but I knew it before I bought it. Mine has a good Florida title also.

You could really ruin someone's day if you could find the vin # and then find the person using that title. Wonder if you would have a legal right to the valid title, vin and data tags?

it would be tough to prove if you dont have any of the tags. seems pretty grey to me. if you find a # on the frame what does that prove. there is a guy on ebay with a warehouse full of frames.

sounds like to me that they could ruin your day because they have proof of ownership of your car.

If they have the title, they can say they rebodied the car, and you have the old frame..
