Hey guys. This is a pic of a window sticker for a 69 Impala survivor I just bought. I haven't got the car yet and I was told it has a lot of original paperwork including the POP that original purchaser had saved. I was told the FONT is somewhat different compared to other window stickers. Anybody with experience that can tell me for sure? I'm not too concerned if it's real or a reprint, but if it is correct for the Tarrytown, N.Y. plant that will be a plus.

Looks like a re-type from the Zone Office; definitely not a production line-printed item.

John, is it OK or no? Should I make a note as to it being a re-print from the Zone Office if asked about it? I'm not sure what this really means in the scheme of the production line item and the Zone Office re-print.

It wasn't uncommon for the original sticker to be damaged after the car left the plant (transit driver rolls window down, tearing the sticker, etc.); the Monroney law requires that the sticker not be disturbed and that it be removed by the customer, not the dealer. If the sticker was damaged (or lost), a call to the Zone Office would get a replacement in a few days. An original '69 sticker would be computer line-printed, not typed, and the last six digits of the VIN would be rubber-stamped, not typed.

OK. I understand. I'm sure, without the proof, it will be questioned by some but not by all at some point in time. I'm glad I asked about it then. I myself would have never thought about it being replaced because of damage. Thanks John
