AE86 vin info and questions

Postby McDewbie » Sun Feb 02, 2014 5:12 pm

some friends and I are planning on starting chump car racing, and we have found an ae86 that we would like to buy for it... problem is we don't know if it has been stolen as there is no registration with the current owner who didn't get any from the person he bought it off of, none of the parties involved know why there is no papers... or how there got to be no vin numbers.... the three that I know of, dash, door panel and firewall are gone or destroyed. I do have the number stamped into the firewall just off to the center, they are AE86~0272936, now, I'm wondering if I can get the vin from this number or if there is another vin somewhere on the vehicle. we would very much like to get this car,as it is a great deal for us and exactly what we are looking for in a race car. that being said, none of us are interested in buying a stolen car and dumping money into it just to have it taken away.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks, Evan

Your state's DMV should be able to answer the question of whether it was reported stolen there. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a national database that you can easily access, but I guess you could try your local police department.

What about the vin number on the door and on the front mirror on the bottom right corner(if you are looking right at the car from the front)
If the vin starts with Jt2Ae86 this is a Sr5, but if it starts with Jt2Ae88 that is a Gts. But yes I would ask the police and Dmv just to be safe.

Looks to be a Canadian 1987 (02/1987) AE86 GT-S 3-door - 2-tone Silver/Grey exterior (23D) with black interior (HA21).

I work at a Toyota dealership and the car was new enough to be in the frame number database.
