Anyone wishing to identify their vehicle, here is the deifinitive way to do so....

Chassis Number:

Lift the small cover by the side of the drivers seat to reveal the full chassis number for your vehicle stamped into the floorpan



VIN Plate:

The VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) plate is located under a flap of carpet just in front of the drivers seat. Lift the flap up to see the VIN plate


The plate has all the data about your vehicle and I have broken down the corresponding numbers (in green) as follows:



1: Vehicle model
2: Vehicle model extended specification
3: Chassis number (this should match the number stamped into the floorpan as above)
4: Engine model
5: Exterior code
6: Gearbox model
7: Differential (final drive) ratio
8: Paint code
9: Interior trim code
10: Factory fitted optional extras code


Breaking down the VIN plate:

1: Vehicle Model - each of the four digits stands for the following spec;

First digit: Vehicle
P = New model L300

Second digit: Chassis type
0 = 2WD standard body (high or low roof)
1 = 2WD long body (high or low roof)
2 = 4WD low roof
3 = 4WD high roof
4 = 4WD long body (high or low roof)

Third digit: Engine type
1 = 4G33 (1,400cc petrol)
2 = 4G32 (1,600cc petrol)
3 = 4G63, G63B (2,000cc petrol)
4 = 4G64, G64B (2,400cc petrol)
5 = 4D56 (2,500cc diesel)
6 = 4G92 (1,600cc petrol)

Fourth digit: Body type
V = Van
W = Minibus (7 or 8 seat)

2: Vehicle model extended specification

First digit: Body type II
G = Panel van low roof
H = Minibus (high or low roof)
J = Panel van high roof
None = Minibus/Window van

Second digit: Body type
S = 4 door (1 x sliding door)
L = 5 door (2 x sliding door)

Third digit: Transmission type
C = 4 speed manual (column shift)
Z = 5 speed manual (clumn shift)
N = 5 speed manual (floor shift)
R = Automatic transmission

Fourth digit: Trim code
U = GL (European vehicles)
U = XL (General export)
X = GLX (Including SE models Chamonix, Jasper)
P = GLS (Eurpean vehicles)
P = Exceed (All models)
G = Super Exceed (Home market models only)
None = DX

Fifth digit: Exhaust emission spec
A = A10
E = MPI (SOHC 16V)
T = Turbocharger
None = ECE R15-04

Sixth digit: Destination
6 = Europe
8 = Australia
W = Gulf countries
1D = Hong Kong
None = General export
Any other number (eg 2) = Home market only

So using the model code for my own car (P35W HSRGT 2) I have the following spec:

P = New L300
3 = 4WD high roof
5 = 4D56 engine
W = Minibus
H = Minibus
S = 4 Door
R = Automatic transmission
G = Super Exceed
T = Turbocharged
2 = Home market model

3: Chassis number - this should match the number stamped into the floorpan as above

4: Engine model

4G33 = 1,400cc petrol
4G32 = 1,600cc petrol
4G63 or G63B = 2,000cc petrol
4G64 or G64B = 2,400cc petrol
4D56 = 2,500cc diesel
4G92 = 1,600cc petrol

5: Exterior code

No data at this time for decoding this!

6: Gearbox model

R5M21 = 5 speed manual straight output
V5M21 = 5 speed manual with transfer box (part time 2 speed direct coupled)
R4AW2 = 4 speed auto straight output
V4AW2 = 4 speed auto with transfer box (part time 2 speed direct coupled)

7: Differential (final drive) ratio

Denotes the ratio of your final drive. L300's came with the following 4 ratios:
5.285
4.875
4.625
4.222

8: Paint code

Please look at this chart HERE for a break down of the paint codes. Obviosuly 2 tone vehicles will have 2 x 3 digit codes.

9: Interior trim code

No data at this time for decoding this!

10: Factory fitted optional extras code

No data at this time for decoding this!
