1960-1969 Comet
(Also Any 1960-1969 Lincoln & Mercury)
VIN Decode

I have added a way for Comet owners to decode their VIN number. This is only for the years 1960-1969. You can also use this for any Lincoln or Mercury made car in those years.
An accurate VIN is needed in the event you decide to sell your car someday.

Comet owners have visited this page to decode their VIN number.

Your Decoded VIN

The sequence number represents when a car was ordered. At that time it was immediately assigned a VIN with a sequence number. The scheduled production date very often did not align with the sequence number. So a Comet with a sequence number of 805678 may have actually been produced and ready for shipping before a Comet with a sequence number of 805432. The sequence number should be considered to be a unique identification that shows when the order was received and when it was planned for production.

1960-1969 Mercury, except Comet sequence numbers started with 500001

1960 and 1961 Comet sequence numbers started with 800001
(The Comet was a stand-alone make those two years...the word Mercury does not appear anywhere on those two years of the Comet.)

1962 - 1969 Comet merged with other Mercury cars so their sequence numbers begin with 500001
