It is a check digit. It is computer generated and is used to verify the VIN..

A check digit is a form of redundancy check used for error detection on identification numbers, such as bank account numbers, which are used in an application where they will at least sometimes be input manually. It is analogous to a binary parity bit used to check for errors in computer-generated data. It consists of one or more digits computed by an algorithm from the other digits (or letters) in the sequence input.

Tim that is exactly where I seen it and what made me look was in your vin it was a 1 and mine was a 3. I was thinking it had to do with stripes because I have no stripes and you do. Thank You
