Post How to find out the REAL age of my CJ

Is there any way to find out the real age of my Jeep CJ-7, using for example the chassis number?
Is there anyone I can contact to?

Why?

Because I own a ?1980? CJ-7, originally imported from the USA, by the first (Dutch) owners.
That is, the date of issue of the Dutch car registration is1980.
But it appears to be the second car registration, because the first one had got lost someday.
Now I can’t find out the date of issue of the first car registration.
To make it even more complex, the car was already a used car when it was bought in the USA.
So, if I could find it, even the date of issue of the first Dutch car registration will tell me nothing,
This puzzles me, AND I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT AGE MY CAR IS!

 Chassisnummer: JDM93AB728367
 Body: J288839 5-13 OP 6JE
 Motor: GM 10009542 – 4 (the Pontiac 151 inch 4-cilinder)

Please send this mail to anyone who could possibly help me.

Your in luck the 151 cu. in motor was only used in Jeeps from 1980 to 1983 so your has to be a 1980.

Jan,
Chassis nummer is het belangrijkste en is eigelijk de identificatie van uw voertuig.
Alleen deze klopt niet "D" en is volgens mij een "0" en dan heb je het volgende,
J = gemaakt door de Jeep Corporation
0 = modeljaar 1980
M = manueel geschakeld 4 versnellingen
93 = modeltype CJ-7
A = gvw 3750 lbs
B = cilinderinhoud 151 cu
728361 = serienummer

vriendelijke groeten

Exclamation

Dirttrack, Steelhead, thanks for your answers – even in Dutch!

Now, I have both #, the JDM as well as the JOM #. How about that?
It says clearly JDM on the chassis (near the drivers seat).
(Er staat toch echt duidelijk JDM (een D met 2 rechte hoeken) in de chassisbalk).
The same JDM VIN # is engraved in the firewall, on the place where the ID-plate was screwed on. You can still see the 2 holes from the screws. This look unusual to me.
(Datzelfde nummer met een D staat ingeslagen op het schutbord, op de plaats waar het ID-plaatje zat vastgeschroefd, te zien aan de twee schroefgaatjes. Niet gebruikelijk, lijkt me.)
This ID-plate is now fixed an inch lower, and has 3 codes. The lowest # is the same as the VIN # on the chassis, but reads JOM instead of JDM !! So Dirttracks story mathes this # and is right after all.
(Dat ID-plaatje zit nu 3 cm lager vastgeschroefd, en daar staan 3 codes op, waarvan de onderste dezelfde is als het chassisnummer, maar dan staat er JOM i.p.v. JDM !! Jouw verhaal sluit daar dus wel precies op aan).
Its looks weird that there is a difference of just one number!
(Ik begrijp niet hoe deze codes slechts 1 nummer kunnen verschillen! Het lijkt wel een vergissing).
Anyway – it’s definitely a 1980.

In a 13 digit VIN from a CJ-7 the second is always a number, so whene Jan says i'ts an "D" then I thinks the "0" is the closed possible match, and the "0" makes sence the "D" must be a mistake from the dutch carregistration.

geetings,

Thumbs up

Dirttrack,
You are right. The number "0" is not typed clearly on my Dutch car registration sheet, and can easily be read as an "D". And that is what happened.
