Typical 1964 Fisher Body plate breakdown

Do not confuse the Fisher Body Number plate information with that found on the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) plate. The series depiction on the Fisher Body Number plate does NOT have the meaning as the VIN plate. To date, Fremont and Oshawa are the only 1964 Chevelle plants that used an odd 3rd digit in the style number.

Some assembly plants have more information on their plates than others and some have information on different lines. Please check the individual assembly plants for specifics.

Line 1: Body assembly date of vehicle. A typical body assembly date is 06C

This production date of 06C decodes to June (06) in the third week (C).
Unfortunately, nobody can define what dates are associated with a week letter.

01 - January 07 - July
02 - February 08 - August
03 - March 09 - September
04 - April 10 - October
05 - May 11 - November
06 - June 12 - December

A - First Week
B - Second Week
C - Third Week
D - Fourth Week
E - Fifth Week

Line 2: Series/Body Style, Assembly Plant, Fisher Body unit number. Atlanta, Euclid, Fremont, and Van Nuys also added the model year (64) as a prefix to the series/body style such as 64-5837 where Baltimore and Kansas City only used the series and body style such as 5837.
