Dan,

What are the last 5 digits of the VIN on your 65, I'll tell you how close to the end it was.

I've been so busy with work that I haven't had had the time to go pull the cover off the car, so here's the info:

66 turbo convt
Regal Red / white int / black top
VIN# 107676L103671 Block# TI025RL
Options: power top, turbocharged, headrest bucket seats.

General Motors Corporation
11B
ST 66-10767 LOS 98 BODY
TR 795-Y R-2 PAINT
D
4O

I'm the third owner and have had the car since 1990. I got the protecto plate and the original plates and registration with it so was able to find and speak with the original owner. Interestingly, although the trim tag says that it has a black top, he said that it came from the Los Gatos dealership with a white top, which is why his wife fell in love with the car in the first place.

Dan, VIN L123322 confirms a mid may assembly as the last VIN for May of 65 L123943 and the last VIN built in 65 was L123865.

Your car was 543rd from the end of LOS production in 65.

Chuck, The production estimates for 65 Corsa Convertibles with the optional 180 engine is pretty low of of LOS. It is nicely optioned as well. I hope you can provide a picture for my records when you get a chance.

That one is a great data point, Dan.
07D = last week of July - very close to the end of 1965 production.
The Fisher Body ID number is 1 higher than Rick's estimated number.
Do you have the VIN for that one?

Also interesting is that it's an Evening Orchid Sport Sedan w/ Black interior with Factory Air Conditioning, but only a tinted windshield instead of all glass.

Hey Roo6363.. Can you email me you tag picture, it is too small to crop and save without being unable to read. My email is in my signature.

Dan, AWESOME tag post...I would love to know how close the VIN is to L128865, which would be the last VIN produced in AUG.

I already made another Edit to my Plant Production Totals...

Dan, hope you can read the vin.
Unfortunately someone for unknown
reasons ripped all the A/C stuff
out. Nothing left but a center vent.
The 4 door has 66 door panels but
65 seats. No really good history on
this car besides it spend time in
Pennsylvania and I believe Mississippi.
I'll post pictures later when I have
more time. I'm hoping someone will
remember it due to its original paint.
