Default Looking for history on my WRX

So here's the deal:
I own a 2002 WRX. I bought the car new in May of 2001 (but couldn't take delivery until July,) when getting your hands on a WRX was a complicated process. Only some Subaru dealerships had one, they were kept in the showroom, and when I wanted to test drive one, I actually had to sign the sales contract first.
I know mine is one of the very early units.

Is there a resource anyone knows about where I could use something like the VIN to see how early in production my exact bug eye is?

I've been driving it every day since I bought it, it has 215,000 on it and I just sank some money into it replacing head gasket and 3 of the axles. I plan to drive it at least until July of 2021.

Yes, the VIN can tell you the date of manufacture. The CARFAX wouldn't tell you anything you already don't know.

I LOLed because someone on Craigslist would actually triple their asking price for being in the first 500.

"Asking $17,999 with 243k in MINT condition! This car once sat on a showroom floor 14 years ago! Will not last!"
