1st letter = mfg
2nd letter = cab type
3 number = vehicle type and sleeper config
4 number = front axle type and number
5th number rear axle type and number
6 letter GVW class and engine (fuel) type
7th letter build plant
rest of the numbers are the chassie serial numbers








thanks for the vin format, but i want the codes too,please.
and what year range does that format even apply to?

Freightliner has very limited info in the ID number, basic cab design and if it has a front driving axle etc. If you post a serial number you want info on I'll try and help.
Most heavy trucks mfg used a "Build ticket" or "Line Set ticket" that contained all the components used on the truck. You would need that to know what the truck has. That info is not contained in the serial number.


Could you please just give me their serial number format?

I have an older manual, but I don't believe the "VIN" as you call it was "coded" with any info, that would be in the model number. It was a Big 3 thing (GM, Ford CHRY) to put stuff like axles and transmissions in the VIN "code".
