It could be only 8 characters long if the production number of the truck is 
less than 10,000.  See  http://www.chevytrucks.org/users/rusty1/numbers.htm for 
an explanation of vin's.

Thanks for your help, Iam still a little confused though. I have been told by a 
couple people that the VIN Number is 9 digits. Mine is 8. Everything points it 
to be a 1949 3100, except the last digits. I have for consecutive digits 
(numbers) and I was told there was five. Is this always true? I am begining to 
wonder if someone assigned a false VIN to my truck. Can anyone help??? Let me 
know if it matters if the VIN is 8 or 9 digits.

Thanks Again,

1949 Chevy Pickup

Shane, not completely sure about the '49s, but my '47-2 has nine digits in
the VIN.  The '47 VINs started with "E", I believe the '48s started with
"F"....so I assume the '49s started with "G"...but I'm not sure about this.
Hope this helps at least a little!
