VIN Number

According to the Toytoa Technical Training document describing the "2005 Vehicle Identification Number" the last 5 characters are the Serial Number. For example '005670" would be the 5,670th car manufactured for that year.

For 2005 Prius Model:
Digit 1: World Source = J = Japan
Digit 2: Manufacturer = T = Toyota
Digit 3: Vehicle Type = D = Passenger Vehicle
Digit 4: BodyType/Drive Type = K = 5Dr Sedan, 4Dr HB 2WD
Digit 5: Engine Family = B = NZ-FXE
Digit 6: Series = 2 = NHW20L (Prius)
Digit 7: Restraint Sys/Grade = 2 = Manual Belt w/2 Airbags
Digit 8: Car Line = U = Prius
Digit 9: Check Digit = ? = Internal Use
Digit 10: Model Year = 5 = 2005
Digit 11: Plant Code = 7 = TMC
Digts 12-17: Serial Number = 005670

I believe that would be the 5670 car from that particular plant, not all Toyotas, or all Prii.

In 2005 I know there were 2 assembly plants in operating making Prii.
