That VIN was final-assembled on or about Sep 10, 1969. Car has a 12A body tag, 1st week December, 1968. Dash top was replaced during the restoration; VIN tag was removed. One or both tags are not original to the car.

I might be mistaken, but is that an early trim tag? My early tag is not that wide? When did Fisher start using the wider tag?

The larger body tag entered production 1st week November, 1968 at Norwood. For a short time, both were used. Took another few weeks or so to implement X codes.
