1978-1988 ALL GM Car Models, Including Buick Turbo Regal -
GM LICENSED DOOR JAMB VIN DATA DECALS
Every 1978-1988 G-body car came with 2 tamper-proof door jamb VIN data decals. Itís impossible to remove the originals decals without destroying them. These decals are required by Federal Law to be printed on tamper-proof paper. The important decals show the carís date of manufacture and the 17-digit VIN number. In many cases, your original decals may no longer be readable, may be missing, or may have paint overspray on them.
GM used a different design for each specific year or years.
Below is all the information pertaining to getting the proper reproduction door jamb VIN data decals for an 1984-1988 Buick Turbo Regal. This also includes any 1984-1988, Monte Carlo SS, 86 Pontiac 2+2 or Oldsmobile 442. We can also get ones for those same years for the regular models. In those cases, the tire sizes listed would be different.
We are working with the only GM licensed vendor authorized to reproduce all these important VIN-related decals for GM older vehicles, ECS Automotive Concepts. They have the special equipment in house to exactly match the original font style GM used to imprint the door jamb VIN data decals. These are printed on the correct tamper-proof paper, which is required by Federal Law. They are the ONLY GM licensed source to make them complete using the proper font format to imprint exact information for your individual car.
If you want to have the correct door jamb VIN data decals to replace unreadable decals on your car or if your carís decals are missing altogether, ECS is the only authentic option. These are custom-made specifically for your car. Having these important decals also enhances the value of your car. It is one of the things collectors look for since it has the VIN information on it. Not having these VIN data decals on a car raises a red flag with any potential collectable car buyer.
Be sure to read all the below information carefully before placing your order for replacement 1984-1988 GBody Door Jamb VIN Data stickers. We only offer them as a set of both decals. You cannot order just one, since it would stand out looking new next to the old original decal.
First, if yours are still on your door jamb take a photo so you can see their exact position. Do NOT remove them until you receive the new decals. Be sure to note which one of the two decals is the first one on your door jamb and which direction they face.
We have listed the original GM part number by each year, which appears on your actual data VIN decals. In each case, the GM part number was the same for both with the addition of either the letter A or B after the part number.
The A code will show your 17-digit VIN number, date of manufacture, and vehicle weight.
The B code covers the Tire-Loading information.
You need to verify that itís the same GM part number that corresponds to your specific year GBody. This 8-digit GM part number with the letter A or B will be in the bottom right corner of the two door jamb data decals. If your label that contains the 17-digit VIN number is completely gone or not legible, you must send us a clear copy of your VIN number from the dash VIN plate, the SPI trunk label, or your car title. Along with the photographic file, also type out the 17-digit VIN number and Date of Manufacture so it can be checked against the photo.
We cannot process your order without this proof of your VIN number. You also need to provide month and year of Date of Manufacture. The only way I know this can be determined is by reading the code on your Body Number Plate, also called the ďCowl Tag Plate.Ē This is the small metal plate located under the hood by the driverís side wiper arm. In most cases, you will have to lightly sand the raise letters/numbers to read them. The code you need is on the first line. There is a 4-digit code in the upper left corner that gives the year, month, and week of production of your car. Keep in mind, Dates of Manufacture could be the fall prior to your actual model year. Example - An early 1984 model could have a production date of November 1983, December 1983, and so on. You only need to give us the year and month, which is what would appear on the door jamb VIN data decal. The first letter in the code stands for the year. The digits following the letter represent the month. The last single letter represents the week of production. Example - The letter E stands for 1984, F stands for 1985, G stands for 1986, and H stands for 1987. Example - For the month of production - 02 would be for February, 04 would be April, and so on. The letter after the initial numbers is the actual production week of the month, which we do NOT need since it does not appear on the door jamb VIN data decal. With that in mind, E would be the highest letter in the code for the weeks of the month. E represents 5 for the 5th week, which some months do have.
Even if your labels are intact and readable, you must type out your 17-digit VIN number and the month and year of manufacture date and put it in your order comments. This is very important! If the gross weight figure is not readable, we need to know what some of the major options are to determine the gross vehicle weight. Options like T-Tops and power seat would add more weight. If the decals are present, be sure to send a clear photo of them. For best results make sure your flash is off when you take the photos.
Please, double-check your answers before placing your order. Remember, these are custom made specifically for your car. These door jamb data VIN decals are on the proper tamper-proof paper, just like the originals, which is required by Federal Law. Once you apply them, you canít reposition them so make sure to position them correctly. (Refer to the photos you took prior to removing your originals).
There is a clear coating over these new reproduction door jamb VIN decals, which is invisible to prevent them from getting ruined by most cleaning solvents. Be sure to double-check the GM part number on your original door jamb VIN data decals to match the year of your Turbo Regal as we have indicated below. This is because each decal can be different, depending on the year. In each case the font style GM used will be matched exactly. However, any imperfections that may appear in your original photo, such as crooked wording, will be made straight. This is the way it should have been originally from GM.
NOTE - In case the GM part numbers on your original door jamb VIN data decal are not any of the ones listed below for the years shown, pick the last choice on the order form and type in the GM part numbers that appears on your original door jamb VIN data decals. ECS will find that GM number in their system and be able to match it exactly. Even though the Turbo Regals were all produced at the same plant (Pontiac, Michigan) some differences may exist.
These door jamb VIN data decals are also correct for all the 1984-1988 GM car models, including the Monte Carlo, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Pontiac Grand Prix.
