    I have just purchased a 1980 Gmc Sierra Grande 25. I am looking to decipher the V.I.N. so I may learn a little more about this truck.
    The V.I.N. is a 14 digit # Starting with the letters TKX. I am not able to find any info on what those letters might mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    ....T means its a.......GMC
    ....K means its a.......Conventional Cab 4x4
    ....X means what Engine.....which is 6.6 liter....With a 4 bbl Carb

    Thanks For Vin Help

    I was just not sure about the engine. I really appreciate the help man. I have found that this is a 1980 GMC Sierra Grande K25 1-Ton Dually which was originally purchased as a cab and chassis. It was built in Canada, which I'm told means its better (go figure). The truck has 27,140 original miles. I will try to get some pics on by the end of the week. From what your telling me this truck probably has a 454 6.6L under the hood. I will be finding out more as I go. I'm getting ready to go pick it up in a few hours. Thanks Again

    Yeah, not sure what the 1980 GMC Sierra Grande package looks like. Someone will help with the VIN I hope, but would love to see some pics of it.
