Hi All,

This is my first post but I've been nosing around for a while trying to learn as much as I can about my semi-survivor 1967 L30/M20.

I just received my NCRS report and the results are: Dealer Code 179, Zone 6 : Dahl Chevrolet Co. Oakland Ca.

Is anyone else a Dahl car owner? From the history I've found online the dealer was on "Auto Row", which was the main dealership drag in Oakland for the better part of the 20th century. Of course, things change, but I believe the dealership is still there doing business as a Nissan dealer at the corner of Broadway & 27th: https://goo.gl/maps/nL2oqX4SwtE2

Anyhow, I thought I'd share what I've learned as I don't know much else about my car, other than I am the 3rd owner and the 2nd owner could not or would not provide any documentation other than verbally telling me that the car spent it's life in California until very recently.

Interesting.  My ram air Formula came from Bill Lang Pontiac/Cadillac in Vallejo just north of Oakland.  Bill Lang is just an abandoned dirt lot now, not the best part of town these days.

I am not familiar with Dahl. I have a 66 Chevelle SS that was sold at Val Strough Chevrolet in Oakland. Val Strough was one of, if not the largest Chevrolet dealers back then. But Oakland is a big city so maybe they were cross town rivals.
(BTW Larry, Vallejo is a ways from Oakland. Even back then when it was less populated, it would have been considered a different market. and yes not a great city now)

Baa, it's not that far Austin, maybe 25 miles, lol.  I drive it in less than 30 minutes if the traffic isn't bad.

25 miles in the bay area while not far, can add a million bucks to your home cost.

Does anyone have any info on Burman Chevrolet that was located in Laramie, WY?
I am restoring a 68 L30/M20 car that came from this dealer.

Thanks

Cool now you can begin looking for some Cormier license frames.
Also start a new thread about your car and include some pics.  ;)
