Fisher Body Data Plate '61 Monza
Posted by: MonzaJPD61 ()

The engine compartment in my '61 is painted the body color, which I believe is consistent with stock. Would the Fisher Body data plate have also been painted over from the factory? My car's been repainted once, by PO, so I wasn't sure if it just didn't get masked, or if was "supposed" to be painted over to make it look original.

In my notes I had narrowed down ACC code K as an option only available in 500 and 700 series cars..as O only had trim tags for 500 & 700's with ACC K on it.

Your Monza just blew that away...

It does have the CC group correct? (ie Outside mirror, Windsheild washer wiper, backup lights, glove box lights)

Could you tell me what other options your car either has or doesn't have?

Windshield?
ALL Clear
Tinted at top edge

Side glass clear
Side Glass tinted

Padded dash or no padded dash?

Poweglide, 3 speed or 4 speed trans?

Pushbutton AM Radio & Rear seat Speaker?

Direct Air heater or Gas heater?

Air conditioning?
