VIN Tag Question

If you have the VIN but don't have the vehicle ID Tag off the firewall is there anyway to track the original paint code, interior code, etc with just a VIN number? Does Jeep/Chrysler maintain that info that far back?

No. The VIN does not show that. You could strip the paint down in layers if its been repainted. Or Look under the dash. If you know the year you may be able to figure out the color.
