OG Raine's Garage Guides: 240SX VIN / Model ID Decoding (S13/S14)

Wrote these awhile back, but a few buddies started getting into 240sx' and brought me here again... so I thought I'd re-post my guides for the newer people who wasn't around yet when I was a regular LOL

240SX VIN / Model ID Decoding (S13/S14)


"Do I have LSD?"

"How can you tell if it's CA model?"

"Is my car a base/ SE/ LE model?"

If you browse the forums a lot, you'll see these questions regularly. some people say you can identify a 240SX model by parts combinations. Some say "look at the emblem" which isn't entirely true anymore since anyone and their mom can just buy emblems and fake the funk.

So What 240SX Do You Have?

The only accurate way to identify your 240SX is by reading and decoding a shiny metal "vehicle identification plate" attached to your car from the factory.

This plate is stamped with various identification numbers depending on make and model car. On Nissan 240sx cars, this plate is stamped with things such as the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), model ID number, engine code, factory paint color code, transmission and axle type, chassis code, etc.
