1961 Belair 4dr Sedan
Body built the 2nd week of July '61
10,762nd Belair 4dr Sedan built at the Los Angeles Van Nuys plant
Almond Beige with a Fawn cloth & vinyl interior.
The Van Nuys plant tended to put the body buck number on the ACC line.
Each Fisher Body plant used a mobile platform with jigging on it to hold the various body panels in alignment for welding. The jigging had to be different for all the body styles. The platform or "buck" (as I call it) was numbered. There could have been 35 bucks in a "gate" of bodies that was continually reused.
By having the body buck number on the cowl tag, problems with poorly fitting components could be traced back to the jigging that had moved out of spec and then corrected.
