What if the 7th digit of the VIN of a 1967 Coronet is a 5 instead of a letter?
Usually it identifies the plant of manufacture. There are other discrepancies as well. The VIN says the car is a V8 340 cu in, but on the car it says it's a 383. Perhaps it was optioned with the larger Hemi engine along with the Premium package (2nd digit of VIN is a P).

VIN#: WP23 H75 1XXXXX

I'd appreciate any guidance. The Coronet pictured is not the car, but similar except the top is not black but the same as the body color, yellow.

Thank you,

Like I said there are discrepancies. However the 383 is part of the chrome trim package on the car as well. It also has larger 11" brake drums instead of the 10". Perhaps it was part of the Road & Track R/T series. I'm pretty sure all the parts, including the engine are original.

I'm most curious about that '5' in the 7th digit slot, should be a letter by my reckoning.

Thanks for your comment, I'll keep digging. Maybe someone else has run across this model before now.
