The last six digits begin at 100001 and run thru 139729, accounting for each of the 39,729 Corvette Coupes built in 1985. Each Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is unique to an individual car.
The Check digit is used to calculate the characters in the serial number and gives it a single digit code that can be used to verify the serial number is legitimate. (Note: The Check digit number varies depending on each specific VIN number.)
For all 1985 Corvettes, the Vehicle Identification Number was stamped on a plate on the inner vertical surface of the left windshield pillar visible through the windshield.
