Wondering how to get a Build Sheet ?


Greetings All :

Just wondering if it is somehow possible to get a Factory build sheet by using the Pontiac VIN ?

Might there be something on a G.M., or Pontiac Web Site where you could do this ?

Any replies would be very welcomed !

Welcome aboard Jim.
If your car was built or sold in Canada you can get all the information from GM Vintage Vehicle services: www.vintagevehicleservices.com/

If your car wasn't built or sold in Canada you can get information from the Pontiac Historical Services: www.phs-online.com/

Todd, what a tremendous job you have done on this site !

Really a true wealth of experience here with all your Membership ! I am humbled with the knowledge of everyone.

My '66 Parisienne is an Oshawa car. Lots of parts and pieces are missing, so just sort of starting my quest towards full restoration. It is a Custom Sport convertible, but fairly basic really, with an old 283, coupled to the standby 2 speed Power Glide. No A/C, manual everything, and the dreaded front drum brakes.

I am a Class "A" licensed mechanic, but retired from that long ago. Worked at a local G.M. Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and Corvette Dealership locally, and sort of became the Corvette and Cadillac "go-to-Guy" for all the specialty stuff and problem solving with 'Vettes and Caddy's. It sure kept me pretty busy, for sure !

Keep up the great work here Todd !

Jim,........ the High Gear Guy

Jim, nothing wrong with a "basic" 66 (best year of Pontiac ever...) Custom Sport convertible. I am betting I'm not the only one hungry for pictures of it even if it needs work, and as much detail as you are willing to share.

Hey Jim the best starting point is the build sheet from Vintage vehicle services and the next is these guys. I have found since I joined in 2009 more about Canadian Pontiacs than I ever thought would be possible. The great thing about working on these  these cars is the drivetrain as all the stuff you need to keep it running or upgrade it is easily available as it is essentially a 1966 Chevy.

Good choice for a project!

Getting a "build sheet" for your car may be as simple as looking for it within the car. The Canadian build sheet is referred to a a "Line 100 Tag". I found mine ringed into the rear seat springs. Others have found them inside front bucket seats. There was no requirement for the sheets to stay with the car but it seems you can usually find some sort of sheet on an Oshawa car from that era. They are neat to have but it doesn't add value to your car unless you are claiming it has rare options or drivetrain and can back it up with documentation.

 

Nice looking '66 you've got there, Jim!

On most of the 66's I've found them, it's been down by the spot where the steering column goes through the firewall or else up underneath the dash pad. It's quite a job to remove the dash pad just to check for it, but it's pretty simple to remove the two little tapping style bolts that hold the plastic U shaped piece around the steering column inside the firewall.
