OPG catalog listing generator sticker

OPG has a listing for a sticker that goes on the alternator that says Delcotron. Is this legit and for all late models? I have never seen one and Clarks does not list this. Thoughts?

Camaro's used them on their alternator, so I have to assume the Vair alternator got the same treatment from AC Delco. Delco + electron = Delcotron.

I have never seen such a decal on a Corvair. Not on a survivor, nor on any high end factory stock restoration either. I would doubt they were used.

The "Delcotron" Alternator was new in 1963.
They made a "big deal" of it that year and showed that sticker on several promo photos I've seen, but I don't recall seeing that on my 1963 Impala.

As far as Corvairs are concerned, they finally got the "Delcotron" in 1965 - no idea what took Chevrolet so long (2 long years!) to get around to it.
