Do you own (or know of) a 1961 500 Sedan built in Oakland CA?

Unread post by ral1963 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:19 am

I need some Fisher Trim tag examples from any 1961 569 Model (500 sedans) that were built in Oakland California.

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 look at the CorvairGold link here viewtopic.php?f=51&t=12817&p=87949&hili ... old#p87949 you'll find a lot of info on the '62 body tag codes.
