It's not MO44, it's M044.  That's the Fisher Body body scheduling code.  More info here...

Not sure how to make that X44 determination on a VN car. Here is something that will better explain the code difference with the Van Nuys trim tag.

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=11013.0


If I'm reading that statement correctly then the M044 is the 13th day of the month (01C, January 3rd week) with the 44th car being built that day? Does this sound correct?

Since the first day of the month (Jan. 69) was a Wed. would that be part of (12E) or (01A) build? Would you need to know that to determine what day the car was built?

No, you can best estimate the exact day your car was built using the VIN, along with the 'end of month' VIN numbers provided in the CRG files, along with the calendar for the month of production, check the number of work days, the total production for the month, and daily production rate, and then calculate which work day your car was 'likely produced (+/- a day)...
UHOH..  I may have spoke too soon, seeing now this was a VN car... ??  Maybe there's a better way for VN???

Yes Gary I see what your getting at. I too have VN car. (12B) with a body scheduling code of (I406) and I was figuring a Monday or Tuesday build.

I'm unsure if there was an 'uniform' Camaro production schedule at VN...?   Can anyone provide information on that?

So this would be I = 9th day of the month January, B week, which is a Thursday, and the 406th car built for that day. Maybe?

So Saturdays and Sundays don't come into play in this code?

Rick, I'm not sure about VN plant but I thought JohnZ mentioned that Saturdays were common at the NOR plant.

Well it's a little more clear to me now Gary. At least I can narrow it down to a day or two. It's nice to know when it's your cars birthday.

Rick, of course this is just me thinking this all out in my head and I could be wrong. I'm sure if others are reading this they are calculating too. Seems to me the VN plant can be figured out to the day but the NOR plant is a bit more difficult to pin it down.

I hear you Gary. I know this isn't scientific but it's nice to all you guys out there to throw this stuff back and forth. And you never know - We might actually figure it out someday.
