The Vin number  (vehicle identification number) is a chassis number to uniquely identify any vehicle.
They were first introduced in 1954, but with no clear standard of the formats at the time. In 1981 the National Highway traffic Safety Administration standardised the format in America.
Knowing how to identify the numbers will help you identify a vehicle and make sure it is what it says it is.
