    Not a Carfax report, but I did get this info from the VIN decoder thingy in the front of the LMC catalog.

    1978 GMC Jimmy 4x4
    350ci 4 barrel
    Assembled in Fremont
    396th unit produced.

    Cant be done on Carfax. Vehicles older than 81didn't have a 17 digit vin and that is how they serach.

    Here is their explination:

    "We are unable to provide you with vehicle history information for vehicles manufactured prior to 1981, when the 17 character VIN became standard. The 17 character VIN is the code that is used to access CARFAX’s vehicle history information database.

    To our knowledge there are no sources from whom pre-1981 vehicle history information is available readily. You could try to contact vehicle-specific clubs or groups focused on older vehicles.

    Wish we could have helped you more"
