1972 Chevelle Build Sheet Examples
Build Sheets are paperwork that accompanied a vehicle as it was being assembled showing what components were to be used during construction. These were not meant to be left in the car once they were no longer needed at a particular workstation, nor were they left for us to find them in a treasure hunt. Rather, they were suppose to be collected and tossed in the trash once they served their purpose.
It's important to note that not all plants were the same when it came to how information was included on these build sheets. Although most of the blocks of data contain the same broadcast code (letters or numbers) for the same item from plant to plant, there are variations. Even the RPO wording in block 107 will vary from plant to plant for the same RPO. So anytime a question is asked about a particular broadcast code, the assembly plant must be taken into consideration.
