Why is the W-Code so important?

Starting in 1972, the 5th character in the VIN number of all GM vehicles indicated the vehicle's engine type. The engine codes for 1972 are as follows :

  • "W" - LS5 454 V8 4bbl

  • "U" - LS3 402 V8 4-bbl

  • "J" - 350 V8 4bbl

  • "H" - 350 V8 2bbl

  • "F" - 307 V8 2bbl

  • "D" - 250 L6 1bbl

Since the 454 was only available as part of the SS (or SP) package, any Chevelle, El Camino, or Sprint with a "W" as the fifth character in the VIN is a genuine SS-454 (or SP-454 in the case of the Sprint).There was no SS package for the '72 Monte Carlo, but unlike the others, it could be ordered with a 454 without an SS package.

Gents, after texting almost 20 different guys I decided to upload some youtube video links. Enjoy!




To elaborate on the fit and finish and some other questions I have received. I would say that the doors close as close to a new Lexus as realistically possible (no jiggling). The body lines are great! The suspension feels like a new car. The interior is like new! Don't know what much more to say other than the new owner is going to be very happy.

Also, several of you guys pointed out and had some questions regarding the car being listed for sale several months ago at Just Toys Classic Cars in Orlando. I did have my car consigned at 'Just Toys' from February 2015 - February 2016 for top dollar. My reserve, or 'cut', started at 55K and throughout the year was continually beaten down. I got tired of hearing the same old song-and-dance about why they had no idea why the car wasn't selling. After a year of frustration, I trailered my car home and immediately put it on ebay with a reserve I knew was going to be met. I'm now rolling the dice in hopes that I still walk away with a fair market price for the car, while saving it's new owner the commission fee.
At the end of the day, I felt like they were not actively working to sell my vehicle and a change had to happen (My opinion). To be clear, I have owned the vehicle for the better part of a decade and have enjoyed it very much. It is a total blast to drive, is very comfortable thanks to the awesome AC, and gets praise wherever I go. Below are links of 'Just Toys' advertisement videos, if they decide to keep them active in youtube. Feel free to give them a call and ask them about the car; I'm not so sure how they will respond to a caller on a car that they no longer have a chance at earning a commission on, but may be worth a shot at honest third party feedback... They currently have the car listed as 'sold' on their website, I'm guessing to save face. It absolutely was not sold; it was returned to it's consignment owner (myself), driven off the trailer, parked in my garage and then put up on eBay.
Rant over, here are the links:



Once again guys, please feel free to give me a call or text me with any questions you may have. I opted not to pay eBay a ton of cash for additional photos, but now feel with the addition of the short clips above 99% of the questions I have fielded would have been answered. Please take this update as me trying to be as forthright and honest about the vehicle as possible. I am open to anyinspection, and will continue to do my best to answer any questions you all may have.

As written previously, vehicle is being sold As-Is. I'm am doing my best toaccurately describe it. Please continue to do your due diligence.
