1964 Trim Tag Codes

It is known that in 1964 Kansas City coded all trim tag style numbers with an even 2nd digit so the Fisher Body Style number is not a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6.

The Kansas City plant used a unique (for 1964) method of displaying the body date through early December. September, October, November, and very early December show the month either as a number (9 for September and 0 for October) and a letter (N for November and D for December) and the date as a number in that month. Sometime in early December this changed to the more familiar format of month and week number such as 12B.

The model year (64) did not appear on the Fisher Body Number Plate until sometime after the first of the 1964 calendar year.  The latest plate I have with no model year on it is 12B and the earliest plate with the model year is 03A so sometime between those two dates the model year (64) was added to the series/body style number.
