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?

Maybe my car was waiting on parts?
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.

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.

Maybe John Z or someone can jump in here and explain the dating vs. production day?

I hope this isn't to sensitive to discuss... :)

I got my report ...
My 1968 Z/28, British Green, Black Houndstooth, Rally Sport with 4.10 rear is tagged 04B and was delivered to Jim Fuller Chevrolet in Corning, New York. Does anyone have any information about them? I did a Google search and only found they are closed and sponsored soap box derbies back in the day. They were on Main street in 1968, and the building is still intact with state worker vehicles stored there.

I broke down and ordered mine already knowing the dealer. it was sold at Lemke Chevrolet in Hubbard Ohio but the report said Don Lerch in Doylestown Ohio. Anyone up that way heard of Lerch?  The other thing my tag is 03D, which was march 24-28. car was shipped the 26. they must have rushed it thru

If someone would put a bug in my wife's ear, that report would be a cool birthday present, since mines coming up....
