I do not have a copy of the MSO. I do have a copy of the first title. It was sold to the original owner on 1/10/68.

  I got mine today and the dealer was Spielman Motor Sales in Brooklyn, NY. I looked up the name in Google and got back news paper articles with that car dealers name going back to 1929 and many in the 1940's. Last records I can find for them are dated 1975 for pension trustee counts. Looking at Google maps I see there is a Key Foods shopping plaza on the property  Cry
 Oh well.....at least I now know who it was that sold the car. Looking at Google maps, you can 'drive' around the roads and see the other properties. I told my wife at least I can see the original buildings that are still standing there and the roads my car once drove down. That in itself was a strange feeling.

Mike;  Zepelak Chevrolet Inc.,  Elmhurst, IL.  We thought it was sold at Pela Chevrolet in Rock City, IL. as there was a dealer sticker on the back.  Maybe it was resold there as a used car at some point.  I did another thread here seeking some info.;

  They found mine. It was delivered to Indian River Chevrolet in Cocoa, Florida. It says the delivery code was 283 in Zone 26. It lists the production date as August 29, 1968.
  This raises a question: My car is #1750. Shouldn't it have been built in August 1967? Perhaps I'm confusing something here, but weren't the cars built to coincide with the model year release in the fall of the old model year?  I.E. weren't 1968 model cars released late-year 1967? Maybe I'm all wet here. Help!

Mine were not special order cars, so I'll have to check this against my MSO's. First thing first, the Pace Car is going to get the treatment - probably followed by the '68, then the '9 Z. Be interesting to see if the '68 is close like yours, since they are close in build week.

Got my SDR today:

Dealer code 784 in zone 3.

Dealer name and location was:
 Chevrolet Inc.
Sparta, Illinois

Still exist but I need some nice merchandise from them, anybody?
Nobody heard of that dealer??
It seems that my dealer is unknown for most of you guys from the US & A..... Sad
They're still in business and I gave them a call yesterday.....but they didn't have any old stuff what so ever left....long gone...and no feeling for the past at all either, sad for me! Sad
I can't find any interesting on the net either so I guess this wasn't the largest dealer in Illinois but the fact that they still are in business would be a good sign..?!
This is what I know so far:
The dealership dates back to 1925 when it was known as the Sparta Motor Co. J.D. Lyle, Jr., and J.M. Lyle sold the dealership to Otto and Norman Svend and Ralph Meyer in 1959.  Chevrolet moved to its current location in 1965. Meyer sold his share in 1971 when the dealership became Svend Chevrolet.

Otto Svend sold his shares to Norman Svend in 1981. Gary Svend became president of the dealership upon Norman's retirement in 1986, with John Menthol, who started with the dealership in 1969, becoming a partner. Menthol bought the full dealership in 1990.

I really would like to get some merchandise like frames for the license plate, old pics, key tags or similar.....

Hi Buddy,
 The address was:  Spielman Motor Sales Co., Inc. 220-24 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn. N. Y.
It was on the corner of Greenpoint Ave. and McGuinness Blvd.

Look back a few pages, Kurt posted a long list of Zones as of 1969 and #21 was "export"
