Build Sheet Location

Is it true that some car build sheets were put inside the front seat backs, under the upholstery? I have heard they were left under the back seat of other GM cars. I plan to redo my seats soon and wonder what I might find.

On my old 65 it was under the passenger front seat tucked into the springs.
Same place on my 66 500 with bench seat - in springs on passenger side.

Ed, were they tucked between the burlap and springs so that they would have been visible from underneath? I could not see anything under my passenger seat but I wonder if the two plants put them in different places. My 66 is a LOS car.

Mine was taped to the upper side of the gas tank. It may be in a different spot as my 65 Corsa was built August of 64 and was the 19th Convertible built in Los Angeles. The center part is stained and I will work to clean it up in Photo shop. Nbelievable it was there for all these years. I would not have known it was there if I was not doing a ground up restoration

My January of '65 Willow Run car had it tucked in the seat base of the driver's seat. It was visible once the seat was removed from the car.

I was able to retrieve it mostly intact. I laminated it to prevent future deterioration.

Yes, tucked between the springs and the burlap.

For the LM Willow Run cars I have owned where I have found build sheets, they have been tucked between the springs and burlap of the rear bottom seat cushion.

A very interesting side note: make sure to carefully check any build sheet you find. At the National Convention in Springfield this past July, Mark Corbin [with another fellow] and I were doing a stock evaluation of our 22k mile 1967 500 4-door (Sierra Tan/Capri Cream two tone, Fawn interior, plus some odd options). We pulled the rear seat cushion and found a build sheet--aha, the key to the options! However, our hopes were dashed when on careful inspection we noted that the build sheet was for the car immediately ahead of ours on the line; also a 500 4-door with Sierra Tan (monocolor) and Fawn interior but only a PG transmission as an option. Somehow the seat cushions were switched--bummer.

Mine was on the bottom of the rear seat between the burlap and spring.

More on build sheets for those who are interested. I found this one in the upper rear seat. Only found because I removed the seat cover. Also picture of trim tag. This '66 Corsa convertible was only unusual because it had NO options. Not even a tinted windshield. It was a very basic Corsa 140 3 speed.

The only transmission option that would show on a 66 and 67 body tag is the Powerglide. 65 was the last year the 4 speed would show on the tag as such, a 66 with no codes at the bottom does not mean the car was not a 4 speed.........it also could have a radio, wood wheel, tele column, quick steering, hd suspension, etc as those options do not show on the tag.

I understand all that you say and know how to read tags. I just mentioned not only did it not have any "body" options, it had no options.

There was a Comfort and Convenience package that the majority of '65s were optioned with. Virtually everything in that package became standard equipment for '66. There were a few other items that were optional in '65 and standard in '66.
