63 Wildcat ( built in Canada)

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have a 63 Wildcat convertible built in Canada and I am puzzled by the Vin# and other coding plates and numbers on the car. Can anyone provide some guidance as to how to decipher the Canadian codes? Thanks!

JoeT, you sure got a complete reply pretty quick here.  I loved my Grandfather and have enjoyed driving his only new car for 59 years but I sure wish he had bought a Buick.

Sean1997: Thank you for your very detailed breakdown of the codes. I knew the car had once been red but I assumed it was Granada Red, not Solid Ember Red. Another piece of the puzzle solved. Thanks again!
