1964 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Fremont, CA. (BF)
August 1963 - February 1964

[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ]

It is known that in 1964 Fremont coded trim tag style numbers with an even 2nd digit for a V8 and an odd 2nd digit for an L6 so the Fisher Body Style number is a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6. Fremont was the only plant to list the upper paint code first.

This very early Fremont trim tag (no date, body number 2, and sequence number 100003) uses a 3-digit number for the paint code where later (such as 10D below) tags use 2 or 3 letters. Fremont was the only plant to use letters in 1964 while all other plants used the 3 digit number. Note there is no job number in the upper right-hand corner and no manifest sequence number in the lower right-hand corner.

Fremont was the only plant to use letters in 1964 while all other plants used the 3 digit number; these this early tags from Fremont would conform to standards used by other 1964 plants but changed to 2 or 3 letters at a later time.

It should be noted that this particular two-tone combination was offered, BUT, in reverse - aqua lower body color with white top and would be coded CQ with wheels done in the lower body color. It's uncertain if this combination, if in fact as depicted on the trim tag, was special ordered or not.

* Note the paint code (FCF) is not a known two-tone combination (Silver Blue over Ermine White) for 1964. It is believed this is a factory stamping error and code should read CFF for Ermine White over Silver Blue with Silver Blue painted wheels. It's also possible the wheel color (F) was stamped first followed by the upper then lower body color.
