65 malibu vin numbers

need some info
looked at a 65 malibu today has ss396 and mailibu ss emblems bench seat and 4 speed. Here are the VIN numbers:

Would like to know if this is an SS or what the VIN numbers mean.
Car has been sitting outside and off the road since 1992. Body is kind of rough, but the car is complete. What might it be worth?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

8th to 13th digits - Sequential production number


Taken from Bluemoongear:


The VIN tag is on the driver's side on top of the dash board and can be viewed from outside the car through the windshield. There is a combination of 12 numbers and 1 letter. If we make up a number such as 136679K320438 it will decode like this:

M SE BS Y P Number

1 36 67 9 K 320438

M=Identity of the Manufacturer/Division (1 is for Chevrolet and will always be 1 because the Chevrolet Division made all Chevelle's & El Camino's).


BS=Body Style


P=Assembly Plant

Number=The unit production sequence number

13837 = Malibu Super Sport 8 cyl Two door hardtop
your emblems are correct, the car is an SS Malibu. Which by the way is the car I've been looking for, so if you decide to sell it (if you haven't already) let me know please!
