Do you own a 62 527 or 727 coupe, or a 62 769 Sedan?

Unread post by ral1963 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:21 am

I need some Fisher Trim tag examples from any 1962 Corvair that is...

1962, 527 Model Coupe built in Willow Run
1962, 727 Model Coupe built in Willow Run or Oakland Ca
1962, 769 Model Sedan built in Oakland


In my collection, I currently have ZERO examples of this type of build tag.

I am currently working on gathering up data to provide an estimated breakdown of each model BY assembly plant.

This data has never been available as no records have been discovered from GM showing this type of breakdown, we have totals by month by plant and we have overall totals by model by year...but nothing further breaking down this info.

Your help would be greatly appreciated...

Please post your trim tag here or email me the image at RAL1963@COMCAST.NET

If you check the CorvairGold link in here: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=98&p=87573&hilit=c ... old#p87573 you'll find a lot of info on the 62 body tags.

Yes, I collect all Fisher Trim tags. Any that you have and are willing to share would be appreciated. There are several projects going on using the data from them. Not only the deciding of ACC codes ( which there are still a few codes missing from low production options) but also total production, by model, by plant using the specific body number from data tags.
