Thats intersting. According to the 1969 calendar and NCRS mine was built (finished?) 8/19 which was a Tuesday and the tag reads 08C. Your car was built the same week according to the calendar, on 8/21 a Thursday, but then dated 08D?Just a heads up... I was a day off. Mine was final assembled Friday 8/22 (I always liked Fridays!). I broke down and got the NCRS report. My body number is 106672.
Maybe my car was waiting on parts?
Thought I would transport this over here Hawk:
So I wonder when yours was stamped 08D if your cars was projected to be finished the following week?
Nice to have the power lol... Good idea moving it. So mine was sold at Gordon Butler Chevy in Lowell, MA. Crazy story behind the dealership. Murder and mayhem and a little mafia to boot. Butler lost the franchise in 1974 after a GM warranty investigator/auditor was murdered by one of the employees who had murdered and dismembered his wife. A prostitute was murdered too. They were hitting Chevy for a motor charge when they replaced a head gasket etc. Then they'd sell the parts.
I guess that puts the kabosh on my hope of contacting the dealer for original owner info...
I don't have a clue when they would have stamped my trim tag, but I guess I'm not super surprised mine might be stamped in anticipation for the next week considering it's a Friday built car. She's an original tag for sure, so I don't think there's anything there. This is what it looked like after I massaged the paint off the tag with some thinner.
