Default Vehicle build sequence

I understand the last six numbers of the vin are the "Vehicle build sequence" which makes me think it was the order number of build. For example; 000001 would be the first PT. But considering that I have read 1.5 million PTs were produced, there would need to be another space if it was the number of the build. I thought it would be kind of cool to know what number your PT was but I don't think it translates that way.

if your thinking is correct, i would ASSume they restart the count at zero for each morel year. so if you have a 2001 it should be easy to figure out. if you have a 2010 you'd need to add together the total number produced for each year and then add the last six of your vin.

i can't find any production number totals by year, only sketchy totals about total numbers sold. i spent about 10 minutes looking on google. i'm a pretty good searcher too.

numbers i found don't make any sense. these come up as part of mexico chrysler truck production as PT cruiser. no other country lists the PT in any category for those years.

2000 - 406
2001 - 147031

i did find these same numbers on 2 different sites though.

My 6 digits are 505100. That wouldn't make sense for yearly production. Probably not right for overall either.
The word "sequence" makes me think it is sequential in some way, but I am not sure how.

Interesting topic.

One thing to take into account is, have the numbers been changed for each model. Base, touring, Limited ect.

like the first base would be 001 but the first touring be H001 or something to that effect. ( I probably don't make sense)

And maybe if 1.5million were made they ended up adding a number after the 999,999model. Or just went back to 000,001

Considering mine has a Born On Date of September 2000, there couldn't have been that many made before it, so something doesn't add up as my last 6 VIN are: 527668.

I went to one site but all I got was this:

VIN:3C.........527668
World region: North America
Manufactured in: Mexico
Year: 2001
Make: Chrysler
Model: PT CRUISER
Body style: Sport Van
Drive type: FWD
Fuel type: Gas
Cylinders: 4 Cylinders
Safety restraints: Dual Front and Side Air Bags
Standard options: Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel


I also found this in a search about the 12 - 17th numbers:

Post-1980 Mopar VINs had 17 characters (the change was made to conform to Federal law). The 12th-17th numbers are a unique, nonsequential code. These applied to trucks as well as cars.

Is it possible they are just random?

Cruizin, since your number is bigger than mine and mine is an 05, I would think there can't be a sequence.

The numbers simply represent the cars serial number specific to each vehicle. They are not generated in production sequence.
