How can I tell if I have a 1976 Early model or 1976 Late model ? Where does the numbers start for late. Thanks

That's a good question one that I haven't figured out by VIN number but there are several differences regarding parts under the hood, that's how I figured out mine is an early 76. The radiator hoses are different from early to late and the fan shroud is different, luckily the early ones are the less expensive one with the late model being through the roof.

If you happen to find out another way of identifying please share since I also want to know everything I can about my vette.

Oh, welcome to smokinvette.com :thumbsup:

Thanks for welcome,
Kinda hard to id. hoses or even the shroud if you don't know which one is which. I don't know but maybe it's me but it just looks like somewhere in the Vin # there should be a start in the number made to the late models.
