    Now since my post, I've done some more research.
    It's believe to a production inspection tag, not every car got one.

    Hey John it is truly a good thing you have the tag and guess build sheet. In my haste to get a runner did not think of many thing's. Was just proud to find one close to home. The motor ran. Knew it need a lot of work. But did not realize their was that much missing off the car. But to say it is coming along and a lot of the missing interior would had to replace any ways after 50 year's of being around. 7thou. for the purchase and afraid to look at all the bill's that have been paid for the part's. Nice car and hope it gives you many year's of good service. :thumbsup2:

    Thank you sir, yes I have my fender tag, but sadly is missing build sheet. The former owner had the seats redone in the original vynil pattern, guess it was lost than. Only way I could tell this is I noticed the seat belts were put in wrong.

    John you don't have to address me as sir thanks for the honor. Make's me feel really old oh I am. Darn no build sheet. Most of them became rat's nest In the future will have a fender tag made to put every thing I am putting on the car. Will never be a factory but would fill that hole in the engine bay. Figure the car was produced in the north and shipped to Alabama car dealer. That was as close to where it came from. Have a picture of the original Tittle. Had to surrender it when transferring it into my name. Your runner buddy Russ. Other's here nicked named me Rusty due to how rusted out the car was when buying it. :lol:

    Ok Russ, I hadn't gave up looking for the build sheet. When I fixed the seat belts, I looked in the usual place for it. Under the back seat, but I also been told. They sometimes put it under the carpet, on the tunnel, just behind front seat. I haven't dug that far yet.

    It was put in the car when coming off the line. Yes under carpet is the other place they have been found. It would be nice to find it. but some are never found. So would not be too concerned with it that fender tag is the most important part. That is my thought. :thumbsup2:
