NICB Offers 80 Years Of Vehicle Identification Information On CD

Posted by on February 1, 2012 - more

We told you yesterday about the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) releasing information on Ford Mustang thefts. Now, for the first time, NICB is offering a compilation of every manual produced from 1937 through 2011. Available on CD in a searchable PDF format, this product will be particularly valuable to car collectors, dealers, auto auctions and others seeking a single source of accurate information. It can be searched by year or make of vehicle.

This CD contains vehicle identification information dating back to 1931 when engines typically had an ID number stamped on them by the manufacturer. Vehicle identification numbers (VINs) were first introduced in 1954. In 1981, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standardized the VIN format and required them on all road vehicles manufactured for sale in the United States.

The most recent manuals provide information on the structure and decoding for most U.S. and Canadian passenger vehicles, including light duty trucks, motorcycles/ATVs and some snowmobiles.

The CDs may be ordered on NICB’s Web site at The cost is $99 per copy, which includes shipping and handling. The CDs are licensed for one individual user and copyright law prohibits duplication. The printed version of the 2011 Passenger Vehicle Identification Manual is also available at a cost of $10 per copy. The 2012 manual will be coming soon.

Check out this video to see how the CD will work or head over to their website for more information.
