    It appears the window stickers were printed ahead of time and then the VIN was added to the sticker (hence the different font on the last 6 digits of the VIN) once the VIN was married to the body.
    It may have been printed when the build sheet was printed.

    That's interesting but not surprising that they couldn't coordinate it that far in advance. Another board member & I were talking about this and concluded that the VIN was stamped on the engine/trans @ the assy. plant and based on what you're saying it was probably put on the window sticker there too. Wayne Roberts has an interesting story that pretty much confirmed the engine/trans part but I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to share it.

    Mike's window stickers are top notch and great conversation pieces at car shows and cruises. People will stop and read them and engage you in conversation about your car, if you enjoy that kind of thing.

    X2, I put mine in the rear side window every car cruise. People love reading them. I always ask them if they wished they could go back in time and buy one for that price.:)

    Since I have a stepchild 68 GS I think more people look at my window sticker than the car...:p

    A copy of the option codes, dealer codes from the Stage 1 registry is all I would need. Along with the VIN, body number and trim code. Email the info to me at mrtromm@yahoo.com

    The Stage 1 registry is only for GS Stage 1 cars.

    Can you do a window sticker or build sheet to look like one from GM of Canada? I would like to do a sheet for my 66'.

    I do not reproduce build sheets so I can't help you with that.

    As for GM Canada, I have never seen a GM Canada window sticker, I know the prices were different since I have a few Canadian price lists but I have no idea what the window sticker format looked like. I have read that GM Canada removed the factory window stickers from US cars and replaced it with their own standard form that was common with all divisions. I have a copy of one for a corvette but I do not know if that is what was actually done or when they started doing it. I don't know what they did for Canadian built/sold cars.

    I have a few window stickers from cars imported into the US from Canada and they used the same format as the US stickers.

    1966 is one of the years that I have a GM Canada price list for.

    Mike, Do you want/need copies of orig. window stickers (Buick &/or other makes)? I see them w/cars for sale online from time to time (e.g. the Teal Mist Skylark that sold on BAT recently) and always wonder if it would help you but figured you probably have all the info. I might have even saves a couple of pics.
