  • S - United Kingdom

Position 2 - Manufacturer

This number tells you about the manufacturer of your car.

  • C - Aston Martin

Position 3 - Division

It provides information on the division. If the manufacturer has multiple divisions, this number helps pinpoint which one produced your car.

Position 4 -8

Positions four through nine are used to describe the model, body style, restraint system, engine type, or transmission gears.


Position 9 - Check Number

This is used to verify if the VIN is valid. This number is generated by a formula developed by the DOT.
