Hagerty Valuation Tools® VIN decoder

Most VIN decoders only have data for vehicles built after 1980 with a standardized 17-digit VIN. Hagerty’s patented VIN decoder also works for VINs and serial numbers on cars and trucks that were manufactured before that date. If you’re looking to learn more about a car that was built in the generation of 8-tracks, CB radios, or over-the-top tailfins, our VIN decoder can help.

Classic car

We see you out there

You’re at car shows, at vehicle auctions, or online just checking out a cool old car … and you’re the one looking on the dashboard for the 17-digit number, or peeking in the engine bay for that car’s VIN plate. You want to learn every available detail about that car’s production history.

The horsepower behind our VIN decoder

Once you have a VIN decoded, our Valuation Tools give you:
  1. CheckIcon

    Over a decade of values

    Sale prices of similar cars

    Whatever car you’re researching also comes with the highest and lowest sale prices, as well as details on hundreds of auction results in between.
  3. CheckIcon

    Factory details

    When included in the VIN, we quickly match you to the correct engine, trim, or body style the car left the factory with, when possible. This can help you spot clones, tributes, and other mods.
