Typical 1968 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, Oshawa is the only 1968 Chevelle plant I have an example of that used an odd 3rd digit in the style number although the Fremont plant is suspected to have used an odd 3rd digit as well in the style number; Fremont did from 1964 through 1967 and in 1969 as well and it would follow they did in 1968.

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: Production date of vehicle. A typical production 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: The first two-digit number on line two is the year of production followed by division/series/body style, assembly plant, and the Fisher Body unit number used for production purposes.
