Original Build Sheet Found

Hey guys I was pulling out my back seat to replace the speaker in between the seats and found this beauty!







I know that it came with a 283 powerglide and that it is a non ss car with 14's but what does the other numbers mean?

Also how would I preserve this build sheet so nothing happens to it?

Frame it to hang on the wall with a photo of the car.

Congratulations. When I found mine it was not nearly as nice. It was under the back seat too. Curious what plant yours was built at. My was a body broadcast sheet not a chassis so slightly different info but some of the stuff is duplicated.

Numbers

Check your vin number against the serial numbers listed in the 3 or 4 boxes. See if your vin number ends with those numbers. Check your trim tag to see if the chassis sequence numbers are listed there.

Only thing I ever found under the back seat was gum, suckers and pennies. All used.

My Sequence number matches my VIN, but after the assembly plant on trim tag mine has 1984 would that be found on body build sheet in 1966?

My vin doesn't match the car as it was changed at least 3 owners ago. See my other thread further down for the long version of it.

Here is a pic of my trim tag


I'm trying to find out all the info on the build sheet. I did find the build sheet underneath the bottom seat. How is everyone preserving these since its almost like trace paper its so thin.

Broadcast

Well the FCO number on the broadcast sheet matches the body number
produced at the plant and trim code 811 also match. Didn't see the explanation on the VIN. Which number matched the suffix of the VIN?

Kale: a good way to permanently preserve this is to take it to any Staples or other stationary supply store, and ask them the laminate it. It will flatten it out, and be forever preserved between 2 pieces of clear plastic.

* Anyone have a negative experience with doing this? If so - please correct me !

Paul the last 6 don't match the vin in the door. I found this out after fossil and warren both helped me realize that the rivets holding my vin in place were wrong. So I did a little detective work with their help and found the correct vin sequence underneath my cowl.

The cowl matches what is on my build sheet and not my vin tag inside the door. I have documentation from the owner I bought it from and the owner he bought it from. So I am the known 3rd owner and wasn't changed by any of us. My assumption was it was changed long ago by some one who knew somebody that had the authority to sign off on a title. The vin tag has been there for quite some time.

Thanks for the tip. I was thinking of doing that but wasn't sure and wanted to know what other people were doing with theirs. Because as we all know if something was to go wrong during the process their would be no way to replace it and I would be very very mad!

Sheet

Which number was the correct suffix for the vin from the broadcast sheet?
Also, are you talking about fender skirts that cover most of the rear wheels? If so, these are aftermarket items, never sold as a regular production option or as a dealer installed.

Kale, nice find. The St Therese broadcast sheets from 67's are really hard to find, especially in nice condition. The two I have found were in poor condition. All that was left on both was the right side about an inch wide. I would store in a plastic sleeve (page protector). That's how I store all my reference paperwork. Especially with old paper like that, feeding it through a laminator might damage it. It definitely matches your car. What does it say in the top right box under dealer order? 38?419 04733? That info contains the original Chevrolet dealer code. We can use that info to try to find out where your car was originally delivered too.

I checked my dealer code list. If the first number in that box says 32419, then it is zone 32, dealer 419, which was Leader Chevrolet Co, West Springfield MA. Makes sense for a St Therese car.

Warren thanks for the help on the page protector. I'll have to look at it closely and see what it says for the dealer number. Could I get a protecto plate made for the car since I have the build sheet for it now?

What would wheel covers be any one have a picture?

paul 105406 would be the last 6

Kale,
Your wheel covers would have been the standard Impala hubcaps. Same as the Super Sports but with a different center emblem.

They are fairly easy to find if you are looking for originals, but IMO 1967 were not the best looking Impala hubcaps, they cheaped out after several years of cool looking hubcaps.

You can't get a protectoplate for your car. Conceivably, you could have one "made" for your car if the drivetrain is all original.
