Researching my 68 Caprice
Warren I know you're building a database so I'd like to contribute my vehicle info from my Caprice. It is a highly optioned 68 Caprice 396 Sport Sedan that I bought off of a friend. It is all original and has only 68,000 miles. It still has the die cast dealer emblem screwed on the back deck lid. It was built in the Doraville GA plant and ordered from Gene Crump Chevrolet in Tuscumbia AL. I have recently contacted the dealership that bought out Gene Crump Chevy. They have no records going back to 1968 but told me of other relatives of Gene Crump that I could contact with questions. I'm hoping I can find purchase records but it might be a lost cause.
While having the seats rebuilt my interior guy came across the lower portion of a build sheet stuffed into the front seat. Sadly the rest is missing. The lower portion merely confirms the dealership it was shipped to. I'm asking for the Chevy By Numbers book for Christmas in hopes to learn more about the car.
VIN = 166398D158826
The 03B; would that be a build date of the 2nd week of March?
Serial # 03865: Is that the build number?
Any help would be great.
