Build Sheet?

I was going through my 64 Shop Manual and came across these. I remember finding them ages ago, and thought I lost them. I can make out my body style "1869". Where can I find out what some of these other things mean?

They are badly faded, even with PhotoShop enhancement. Near as I can make out:

Job No 33 1200
Style 1869 5340_A
Comb E Y 2 KMS561
Deck

Interesting pieces. Those cards had the cowl tag info on them (body, body# and option codes) and some other misc numbers.

1869 is a Impala 4dr sedan.
5340 is probably the body number
E is tinted glass
Y is power bench seat
2K is factory air
2M is powerglide
2S is rear antenna.

It is interesting how on the one card, Y was circled and "Elect" was wrote in below it because of the power seat.

I'm guessing the car is long gone.

I still have the car and I am "restoring" it now. I have had it since 1982. All the stuff you came up with is correct for the car as I know it. I do know from the VIN that it was built in Los Angeles (strange to think of stuff actually being built out here ) and spent 64-82 living near Sacramento (belonged to my uncle's father-in-law), then from 82-present here in Southern California (Orange County). It was the first car I ever owned and my daily driver from 82-91. I got it with 70k miles and ran it up to 210k miles . Lots of happy miles

I wonder if the circled "Y" was some internal note, like somebody forgot/needs to, route electrical to the seat area for the power seats.

What is a "Body Number"?

What would be a good way to preserve these? I am sure the writing will only continue to fade. Would laminating them work?

I would scan them to have electronic copy. As to the original tags, I do not know.

The body number means it was the ____th/rd/st impala 4dr sedan body built at the Los Angeles plant.

What is the vin#? And can you post a picture of the cowl tag? It would be interesting yo match that stuff up with the tag.

Interesting, I didn't realize that the build sheet was largely repeating info from the tag.

Thanks for posting the tag pic. So the body number is on that card, only on the top line next to 33 and not on the style line. That is somewhat unusual... a 64 4dr sedan (not sport sedan) with a power seat.

Yes, it has a few 'lux items like the A/C and electric seats, on an otherwise basic car (I am sure glad he got the A/C ). The radio was even the most basic non-push button type.
