Question About VIN and NCRS Shipping Report
« on: August 26, 2016, 04:59:48 PM »
I am a bit confused and am asking for you experts to chime in.  My car's VIN is 124377N178723 and the date on the Trim Tag is 01D.  Does this VIN correlate with the time frame on the TT?  The NCRS Shipping Report that I received for this VIN shows the GM official production date as 2/21/67.  It seems to me this is way too long a time frame from the TT date to the production date; or is this within normal time frames? 
Finally on the NCRS report the delivery dealer listed is code 0 in zone 28 and the dealer address as simply Cleveland Zone Office.  Can anyone give me any insight into what exactly this means and if an actual dealership name can be determined.  Thank you.

Vin matches the production date.  The trim tag being off by almost a month is a little odd..  Have you checked the hidden vins?  If it checks out then what kind of options does the car have? 

No info from me on the dealer codes..


And yes I realize I am not an expert..

The VIN and the build date on the cowl tag match up very well for the 01D build week body number should be somewhere near 784xxx.  The car should have been shipped around January 21 (actually a bit later like 1/23) not February 21st.  I suspect you have a Typo on you NCRS document, wouldn't be the first one.  Whats the full info on the body tag.  Zone office delivery can mean all kinds of things, a special order car for a GM exec, something for a national car show, or a demonstrator.

Yup, and note all the caveats with the asterisk. :)

I think the ship date is correct. NOR was on strike that month.
25 Jan 67 - Norwood on strike.
20 Feb 67 - Norwood strike ends.

Kurt I understand the caveats but the vin for the last of the months was my point that the shipping date made sense..  I also was not sure if a shortage or strike at the end of Jan - Feb was the reason for the low production numbers for Feb..
