Weird VIN plate !!!

Hi everyone,

Just bought a 68 P1800 and I have a very funky VIN plate ...
Have you guys see anything like this ??? I looked into 544 or other model but nothing makes sense ... not even color numbers or upholstery numbers ...
any idea why ???

The chassis number and body numbers make sense but that plate is a total mystery to me ...

Hummm ... interesting page but still doesn't decode this VIN ... I just don't get it even the S-code is completely off ... the guy who did this one must have been completely drunk ...

In those days all you got was a serial number. I had a 1964 122S wagon with the unforgettable serial number "9377". You could tell what it was, and it was white. Wish I coulda taken it with me to use forever. The only number I ever knew that I never forgot.
