1965 Monza Convertible

Unread post by PaulR » Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:28 pm

Hey guys could you please decode this one. I know most of it except for some on the options (last) line. Here goes:

04A B
ST 65-10567 WRN 14834 BODY
TR 773 E-1 PAINT
2M3C4U5W

This one example is pretty rough and it is a parts car only. I may have gotten the "C" wrong in the last line. It was tough to read. Thanks.

Apparently when I type in proper spaces and lines, as shown on the Fischer body tag, it does not come up exactly in my post. I love "technology". Sorry about that but you should still be able to decipher it.

04A B
ST 65-10567 WRN 14834 BODY
TR 773 E-1 PAINT
2M3C4U5W
Here is a breakdown of the information on the body tag you provided...
BODY TAG INFO:

04A
Body Build Date: 04 = April A = First Week
The first two digits are numbers 01 through 12, indicating the month of manufacture. The letter is A-E, indicating the week of the month. If the letter is an "A" it indicates the first week of the month.

Interior paint code: B = Blue

65-10567 WRN 14834 BODY
Style: 65 = 1965 10567: 1 = Chevrolet, 05 = Monza, 67 = 2-Door Convertible 4-Passenger,

1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 2-Door Convertible - 4 Passenger, Total Production: 26,466

TRim: 773- = FAWN (MONZA 10500 and CORSA 10700 SERIES — Bucket Front Seats)
This 3 digit codes represents the interior color and seat type.
(Are you sure this number was 773? 733 is the code for Blue).

ACC = Accessory line
When decoding ACC line on the Fisher body tags, be aware that body tags do not include any options that did not require any body modification be done by Fisher. Fisher was only concerned with items that required modifications during the assembly of the body. A good example is that you won’t find Telescopic column listed on the body tag. Although this is a major option, it did not require any special consideration during body assembly.

2M 3C 4U 5W

GROUP 1
NONE

GROUP 2
M = RPO M35 — Powerglide Automatic Transmission

GROUP 3
C = RPO B70 — Padded Dash

GROUP 4
U = RPO P19 — Spare tire lock

GROUP 5
W = RPO A49 — Deluxe Front Seatbelts (Chrome Buckles) with Retractors

This guide will show you how to decode the VIN tag...

Thanks for the run down of the body tag information. Everything checks out; the padded dash, deluxe seat belts, retractors and PG transmission. My bad, the interior code is 733, light blue, instead of 773. The car has been repainted since it is no longer in code E, Danube Blue, it is closer to the code D, Mist Blue. Thanks again.

Update: I am going to buy this POS car, (oops, can I write that on here?), before I change my mind. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks when it gets warmer I can drag it home. If you live in east central Wisconsin, please let me know if there is anything on the car that you may want. It is very rough from sitting outside a long time, but all the parts, especially the convertible specific parts are there. More details to follow. Now, if the guy could forget that I am going to pick his car up...
