Dennis you got me by 500 :-)  Here is a car listed on ebay and his VIN is close to us, funny how the trim tags work out though my VIN is after his but his trim tag is about 9000 higher then mine.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/301250144385?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

So what which car would have made it out the door first? Does your earlier trim tag indicate your car just left the fisher plant before his, but once it was at GM, his got done first? What is the build week of his car vs. yours?

The body number was assigned when the plant accepted the order for production, not when the body was built, so there could be a relatively short time span or a much longer span, depending on material availability, sales priorities, etc. Once the Fisher body was received at the Chevrolet Body Bank and the VIN was assigned, it would be unusual for the body release to the Chevrolet assembly system to be delayed more than a few hours.

So was there planning coordination between Fisher and Chevrolet so that Fisher did not release orders to the system which might have material availability issues on the Chevrolet side? There must have been, or some type of central planning?

Absolutely, GM determined when a particular car was to be built based on their schedules, and their part availablilities and Fisher built it.  There wasn't really much on the fisher side of the plant that could result in a material shortage that wouldn't alos affect the GM side.  Maybe things like convertible and vinyl tops in certain colors, some interior peices, etc.  Most of fishers parts were sheetmetal stampings that were not specific to a certain vehicle, like a 302 engine, or an M22 transmission. I'm sure there were some things on the Fisher side that could delay a build, but most of them was probably on GMs side.
