1965 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Baltimore, MD. (BAL)
August 1964 - February 1965

[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

[  August 1964 - February 1965  ] | [ March - August ]

It is known that in 1965 Baltimore coded all trim tag style numbers with an even 3rd digit so the Fisher Body Style number is not a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6.

Interesting to note this is a very early 1965 model year production convertible (no body date) as noted by the body number and sequence number. Baltimore is also suspected of using round-headed rivets early in the model production year.

Interesting to note this is a very early 1965 model year production convertible (August 1st week of 1964) as noted by the body number and sequence number. Other August body dates at the bottom of the page are very late 1965 production cars indicating a more than 12 month assembly period for 1965 models from Baltimore.
VIN plate also appears to have been off the car at one point, note hardware store type rivets instead of the GM rosette headed rivets; also note the space on either side of the letter "B" for Baltimore that's not typical of a 1965 Baltimore VIN plate.
* VIN indicates a 6-cylinder engine
