hey big mike how can i find out what number my car was on the assembly line when it was finished being built :confused thanks :cheers
It is the last 6 digits of the vin, I'm having trouble finding the starting number and I don't know if they continued the sequence from 04 through 06.

Also, You can check the data plate which can be found under the hood on the radiator support in the driver's side front corner, it will include the build date.

If that's the case.....there were at least 178,000 05 GTO's built?..... Actually according to the last 6 digits of my VIN my number would be 381169.....:confused

Edit: You are showing an '04 VIN

Like I said, I don't know the starting point of the numbering and I don't know if the numbering sequence was used on the Monaro's sold down under, G.B. and S.A.
