I had no Idea what dealer it came from. Turns out I drive by the dealer (Hatch Chevrolet in El Cajon, Ca.) (at least where it use to be. It's changed hands a few time) going to work every day. I'll try to scan it and post it. If you look at post #40 you will see a copy of what the letter looks like. Same info.

I just received my letter, I do not know whether to laugh or cry.

6/23/69, Dealer code 1, Zone 79 (Hawaii), Dealer Name: GM overseas Distribution

Now what the heck am I supposed to do with that!

I bought the car in north NJ in 82 and it had a Seton Hall University sticker on the window. This car really traveled! LA to Hawaii to NJ!!!

Anyone here have information on the GM shipping to Hawaii info??

I got one of my shipping data reports today for a 1969 Yenko I used to own. Since I no longer own it I blocked out part of the Vin. I was really hoping to get info on my current 69 but it is one of the lost Vin's. Maybe someday they will find the records. Just thought you guys would like to see it. George.

Maybe Hawaii has records and one has to wonder if the original owner was in the service since the car traveled so much (Huh).

If a car was ordered by someone while on active duty the order system would have processed it through the overseas distribution.  My guess based on seeing a few of these would e your car was ordered by someone in the navy possibly stationed in Hawaii and delivered to a dealer in his home state for his return. that's all speculation but its based on what we know happened. More times than not an Overseas Distribution meant exactly that sometimes it was shipped overseas sometimes it was not.

Do you think there are additional records someplace in the navy or GM Hawaii that I can investigate?

I wish these documents or letter, contained more than dealer info.  Build sheet info or window sticker info would have been "super".

I don't think it is for a lack of trying,  Smiley
 I just don't think it has been discovered, or that kind of pertinent info got tossed at one point.

Hey guys instead of waiting for old dealer items to pop up why not post wanted ads on CL right before a swap meet,or a web site for a year or so... you never know a former dealers kids or grand kids may be setting on the stuff you guys want.

#1 owner of mine ordered while in Vietnam ,picked it up stateside at a Michigan dealer. ( not imagined conversation...) In owner's manual ,stamped under the POP is referance to overseas distribution. Curious to see how the Cert. comes out.

Car's coming back from paint next week. Going to give #1 a call and get him out to the house for some pics and a little more history.
