Decoding/Numbers / Re: Fisher Body Number Report (1969)

VIN order was not a factor. 512345 may have released late on 2nd shift; 512340 may have been released the next day.
The body bank didn't work quite that way. Its purpose was mainly for line balance. There were 6 lines in the body bank and 10-12 cars in each line. There were always bodies coming into the bank (and each line) and thus requiring the continual release of bodies.  So a given line might progress at a slightly different rate than another line, but they all progressed. Two bodies that were sequential entering the bank would exit within a dozen or so of each other, depending on options of course.
It looked very much like a toll booth on a turnpike, where everyone fans out into multiple lines, some faster than others, then rejoins into a single flow again.

Weeks were defined and applied at Fisher's discretion.

Any 69 big block would work. And there were multiple fastener suppliers so it's not absolute.

124378L320850 would be the full VIN.

JohnZ posted info about the number of black paints on the Fisher side - just 2.

It sounds like it is a GM of Canada microfiche page. They used to send it when you ordered the info on your car, years ago.

I would install, have it pass tech, and then hook it up.
The tint is minor - many new cars have the same issue and it's not an issue.

I recall JohnZ stating that there were only 2 blacks in the main paint booth. Gloss and less gloss.

Originality / Re: 67 Tire Pressure Decal and Seat Belts
« on: November 29, 2018, 03:25:37 AM »
The way I read this, if your tire pressure decal says 5 passenger than it would have gotten 5 seat belts from the factory... since mine only had 4 seat belts and is rated as 5 pass, the 5th center seat belt would have been removed by the dealer.  My car bas built at the end of Dec 66 and sold in March of 67, since the letter would have come in February it would make sence the center seat belt would have been removed.  Now I need to find another 52-A-66 belt.
Thought this was worth correcting.
I have never seen a 67 with documented 3 belts. The label says 3, but they didn't install 3.

It is possible in production, Z/28s used a driveshaft balanced to a higher rpm.
They used the same shaft as any 69 with a manual trans or powerglide. Nothing special....
