    I was told it was a Florida car to start with the sold to a Oklahoma resident. I purchased and brought to Arkansas. Vin #
    446370H18291
    Just trying to learn as much as I can about it. Automatic Transmission has been changed to a TH200R4. I have the numbers matching Transmission that came with car. It has headers and flow master exhaust on it. Where can I search information about the vin number?

    The VIN tells you it’s a ‘70 GS455 built in Flint. It looks like you’re missing a digit after the H, it’ll give a vague idea of when it was built. Your trim tag under the hood will tell you a lot more-interior color and type, paint color, roof color if it’s painted or vinyl. The original transmission code (BA, BB) will tell you if the car is a Stage 1, as will the engine if it’s original. If you can find a build sheet or get papeerwork (from whom depends on the build date/VIN) that will tell you options, rear gear ratio, etc. Welcome! Post pics!

    Nice looking car! Contact Sloan to get the report being that it's an early '70. I understand their staffing/turnaround time is limited right now. The report will tell you exactly what options it originally had, the dealership it was sold to, invoice price/date, etc. Well worth the $.

This information comes from microfilm records donated by Buick Motor Division. For a complete list of VINs available, click here.

All reports list options, invoice amount, invoice date, color, trim, key codes, order number, and dealer number. A copy of the wholesale car order form is also included. Using the wholesale car order form, you are able to “decode” the options and accessories which came original to the vehicle as it was produced by the factory.
