Would there be anything revealed on the Build record that isn't already shown on the original window sticker?

There WASNO (Monroney-) Window sticker until---when; 1959?

Even then, the IBM card will tell a lot more construction detail-info than will the Window Sticker.

Kevin, are you talking about Fleet Sales, with multiple cars having the same Sales Order number?





Nope. I happened to be in Historical one day when a fellow from legal turned up. There was a lawsuit involving a '65 or '66 Valiant and the build date of the car was crucial to Chrysler's defense. Outside of Historical in the building where it was located was a huge expanse of four drawer letter size file cabinets with each one full to the brim with hardcopies of shipping invoices. And they were all filed by the S.O. number. Along one side of these field of cabinets was another row of cabinets and on top of these was a HUGE binder, like you'd see in an old style auto parts place. If it was 10-15 feet long, it was an inch. This was where you looked up the vin of the car you were researching. Along with the vin was the S.O. number and also the I.D. of the file cabinet containing it. Each of the file folders in the drawers of the cabinet held all of the cars built with the same S.O. number. They were all obviously from the same plant, but there was no rhyme or reason to what they were. IIRC, the car in question was from Hamtramck, so the folder contained a smattering of everything they built. I can't recall now, but it was either the fellow from legal or the librarian who told me that there could be up to 50 cars with the same S.O. I certainly had no reason to disbelieve them.

From what I can recall of discussions with various people, a large fleet order wouldn't necessarily be built consecutively on the line. If the vehicles in the fleet were either strippers, highly loaded, or had some oddball equipment on them, they'd likely be either third, fourth or fifth vehicle or the like, depending on the manpower requirements. Yes, the fleet order would be built to a schedule with the delivery date on everyone's mind, but unless all of the manpower could be utilized as efficiently as possible, they wouldn't necessarily be one after another.

Try putting it in the for sale part and pictures are a good idea

No pictures means not for sale

Thanks, for the free advise and I apologize I did post it in the wrong place but I just started using this forum at the time and of coarse made a mistake of placing these vehicles on here for sale or just asking if anyone was interested. In saying all that by the time I caught the mistake both vehicles were sold. Thanks again

The factory's IBM Build Card you gotta buy from the Chrysler Historical society, from the two links, right-above

Those links don't work, I used the first links and they work.

Did anyone order from the Chrysler heritage lately?
It seems like they only accept check or money order, or does anyone know otherwise?

I can't seem to download the Build Record order form from the FCA website. Anyone else having this problem? Hopefully they're still in business.
