Do you own (or know of) a 1961 500 Sedan built in Oakland CA?
Posted by: ral1963 ()

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

Wow....nothing? I presumed these were a low production and not often saved car, but I assumed Oakland would have more examples due to not rusting out like KC and WR cars...

Still looking for any pic's of 61's..

Heck, I'll take any Fisher Tag images that haven't already been posted.. ( I save everyone posted here for my collection...)

I've got a 61 500 4-door that came from Colorado, maybe would have come from Oakland. The hood is piled up with parts and stuff but I'll try to get it done soon.

Wow...There was such a huge response from my Fisher Tag request for 66 or 66 LOS tags...

Does that mean that there are just not very many 1961 Oakland Vairs out there?

I'll take ANY Oakland built cars, any year of Oakland production..
