69 cowl tag
« on: October 13, 2018, 09:56:47 PM »
What does NBR mean on the trim tag? It seems to be where it should be LOS or NOR.
Thx.

Is the body tag date 0A?

Thought all the known NBR tags were from the 09A timeframe, so was the scheduled build week also a typo?

'NBR' tags are in the 09A time frame but were mis-stamped.

Fisher Body issued the tag when the production order was released to build the body for a specific dealer order. Fisher skipped some weeks; the tag date has a casual relationship to when the car was final-assembled by Chevrolet. For example, some 02D bodies were final-assembled mid-March '69. The Chevy schedule bank shuffled bodies after VIN assignment; cars were not build in body tag date or VIN order. Not unusual to see a D body tag with a lower VIN than a C date.

Thanks for the information, I was really hoping it was something extraordinarily rare! lol

I think this is a photo of your NBR cowl tag from the facebook group.  I saw you said you would have posted it, if you had time to resize. I just saw it, and thought I could help with photo.

I wonder if it was a prank. NBR and 0A start appearing on tags as of Friday September 13, 1968. Earlier 09A tags are normal. Corrected for 09B.

Sure seems unusual to have anomalies in two different tag fields.
