1966 body tag decode

Figured I'd jump into the fray here too.
Can someone please decode this?

Thanks!

2S is actually rear antenna. There was no interior chrome option for 66. What is the vin# of the car? I'd like to add it to the impala database?

Found this in the gold car. This doesn't look anything like the 8.5" x 11" 'build sheet' I found in my 69 Camaro.

Is this what the build sheets looked like in 1966?

Thanks for posting the picture of it.

Actually, the build sheets looked different that that. The Buick-Oldsmobile-Pontiac (BOP) plants used one style (reffered to as build sheets) and most of the other plants used a style like what you found in your camaro referred to as broadcast sheets.

I think flint used broadcast sheets but these build cards were the only thing they stuffed under the seats.

It does not give as much info as a build sheet but is still a nice piece of documentation to have.

I have a few of them in my reference binder.
