As a side note; How important is it to have:  1) original build sheet ?   2) protect-o-plate ?   3) provenance from dealer to current owner?    And in what order?   Apologies if this has been covered previously.

well the more original info you have, the better, is an easy rule of thumb. "important" can mean so many things, and be different for different people.I would break it down like this: Original build sheet- probably one of the most sought after pieces of documentation along with..
protecto plate- another valuable tool in checking a car for originality
provenance from dealer to current owner- yes nice to have or know, but not as important as the previous 2. (If you don't have the previous 2 than obviously more important)

So IMO the protecto plate would be number 1 followed closely by the build sheet.
Another nice one you didn't mention but some really fortunate guys have is the window sticker.

How about some pics of the 67 you just picked up?

Thanks, BULLITT65, for the response & sorry for my delayed reply. I'm still hoping for a small miracle from the previous owner[20+yrs.] re: orig. POP and anything else he may have in storage. Build sheet not under rear seat, hopefully it's in a box w/ prev. owner [wishful thinking in progress] When it warms up I'll ckeck gas tank. I will post pics at that time also.  Thanks again!  Tim.

 If this is an LA car you may want to look under the carpet for a possible UOIT sheet. I found mine taped to the tunnel along with an electrical inspection punch card when I removed the rug after it got wet by accident. This listed the body build date and RPO options Fisher prepared the body for and also matched the trim tag codes. They are rare to come by because they were usually removed before going to Chevy, but you never know until you try.

Good luck,
Mike
