B-29     Vehicle Build Month

One-character code from the following table.            Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul
      1967  V   L   R   K   Z   S   P   W   N   Y   T   X
      1968  8   9   O   N   D   1   2   3   4   5   6   7
      1969  8   9   O   N   D   1   2   3   4   5   6   7
 late 1969  8   9   O   N

These codes were impregnated by the dealer ?

Nope. Everything that was die-imprinted on the P-O-P was done at the plant, when the plate was created in the Addressograph machine on the Final Line. All the dealer added was the GM-branded Dymo tape with the purchaser's name and address.

JohnZ...  I believe the 'date of sale' was also included by the Dealer on the DYMO tape with the purchaser, as that sale date specified the initiation of the warranty period.   If I'm wrong please correct me...  I'm going from memory of one I have from 1969.

Here's how mine goes down: 04D body assembly began
                                          P.O.P  B-29  build month: "5" May
                                          Report came back reading May 1
                                          No dates on 3 tape strips Buyer's name , mailing address
                                          In booklet under tag : Delivery day: 6-25-68  in ink
Thanks John, after reading (and decoding) thought I was correct on the dates, and which ones should match...you verified. The above is just mine, and a 68, curious if others vary ?                                     
Perhaps putting the delivery date on the dymo label varied by dealer, or perhaps they sometimes *forgot* to add it, but when a car came in for service, the service order was printed from the P-T-P dymo... with the owners name, address, AND date..   at least for the two 1969 P-T-P's that I have.  see photo.   It makes sense that the delivery date should be included to make it easier for the service writer/tech to verify car still in warranty (or not)..

Mine was also ordered from a serviceman overseas ,no dealership printed on warranty book :" Foreign Distributers Division." Perhaps it made a difference. Pretty cool when all the dots connect with the dates Smiley

Nick,
 is your car a LA or Norwood? My car is a 05C, with a birth date of 5/6/68. Just wondering.

You are correct Gary, looked at another 68 protection plan booklet I have ,on the P.O.P tape next to buyer's city/state : 7/18/68,underneath Delivery date : 7/18/68 ( not a Camaro, old Chevy II I had in high school)

Not a funny story at the time...this one and the one for the Z sort have been intermingling for years in the glove compartment(no idea how it made it's way in there?)

Grabbed this one holding it up to the mirror and froze, in a panic about sprinted back out to the car and there was the bag with the Z's upside down in the glove compartment, little safer place now !

Why the Z's is different ? different dealers, different ordering circumstances ? One was built to get groceries ,one was built to GET IT ?

 I had Chevy Muscle Docs run my VIN and was excited to possibly learn more on the history of my '68. Unfortunately I was one of the few whose VIN could not be deciphered and identified. My car is a very early Norwood car...#1750...so perhaps that is why it couldn't be traced. But kudos to everyone else--you guys must be thrilled to have gotten your info. Keep 'em rolling!

Well I made the call today and turned up bust.  Sad Apparently Hajek Chevrolet, was sold 2 years ago and is now King Chevrolet. I spoke to both the finance manager & the sales manager and neither had any info although the sales manager took my # and said he would ask around. I may go back to running craigs list adds only this time in Denver and see if that turns up anything.. The search continues...  Grin

Order #617 (May 4) Received (June 2)

Production Date 2/17/1969 Matched perfectly with my buildsheet date.

Dealer Code 219 in zone 6

Dealer was Fitzpatrick Chevrolet, Concord, CA.

The dealership was 15 minutes away from the address on my 2nd owner protecto plate. Still working out some details with the previous owners I'm in touch with.

From what I found on Fitzpatrick Chevy opened in 1948 and shutdown sometime in the last few years.  Anyone know anything about Fitzpatrick?

Just received my Shipping Data Report today. The unusual information on this report is that the official production date for my car is 1/3/68. The trim tag has 12E. I suppose that assembly was started on the last production day in 1967 and was finished on the first production day in 1968. Here is a picture of the trim tag.

How's the correlation between the MSO date and the production date ? One day off ?
