pre 1980 vins!!

I am trying to look up my vin for my 1974 Ford Gran torino Sport. I know I have the number right but cant seem to find the right answers. If anyone can help.................awesome! It's 4a38q190251. The rest of the info is 65r 5j eu u 9 22. Can anyone break this down for me or let me know if its hot or what?

If you are trying to use a service like CarFax, you can't. None of the VIN services I'm aware of can accommodate older VINs with fewer than 17 characters.

Awesome!

I was starting to get kinda worried. It's my first total restoration. I found out the guy that sold it to me lied about a few things as I took it apart! Thanks.

Yeah my AutoCheck doesn't take anything less than 17-digits.
I was offering VIN-checks on craigslist. At one time I was doing it for free.
