The full size Pontiacs were the best selling cars in Canada in 1965.

Since the first example we have of the B appearing is in November of 64 ( early in the production year ) this wouldn't be explained by the record production which wouldn't have been anticipated in November.

Interesting that neither the Acadian or Beaumont parts book for 65 and 66 make any reference to this anomoly in the factory code.

So we have a few examples of the B code existing but I take it that no M codes have yet surfaced.

 Not that I have found... "yet"...

For those that don't know the registry... here is the list of cars we do have:

2a tag.JPG


Since the latest we have is July 30' Marks data tag is 2 days sooner, the 28th but yet the documents say the 30th. Again I am wondering, was there trouble with the B cars that they were delayed.. an I appreciate the tag being with the car at the start of production.

Not only that, look how far past his cars body number is! 9168 units!!


I just noticed Marks car is there although no B is with it... Notice the car before his is also a B and has a higher body number that the cars posted after it.

Yes, the body numbers seem all over the place when comparing consecutive days. And my tag shows 2 days before the document date.

It was 1965 fellas, no computers, manual labour, bad attitudes, $hit happened, we may never know the answer, although I'd like to.

I also checked the Cdn Chevy 11 and Chevelle book looking for the B or M indication. Not there.
My 65 Chevrolet book is missing the page we need does anyone else have it?
The Buick and Oldsmobile books don't offer any help.

Here's another SWAG ( scientific wild ass guess ). Might the B and M coded cars have been made on a production line other then the regular Pontiac line(s). In other words made on the Buick line because they were selling so well vs the Buicks which might not have been in demand so production space was available.

It's an FM ( friggin mystery ) so far.

 Ray, it isn't an issue of the $hit happens theme, inquiring minds would like to have a look into the way things were done.... and why..... that's it. Also, it wasn't only 1965.. it was 1966 as well and from what we have seen, ONLY 1965 and '66... It would seen no other tag is stamped like it other than the S/T tags. And I have snapped a bunch load of tags for the site... They became an interest to me.  As a guy who worked with GM on the floor for nearly 20 years, I have seen quite a bit of $hit and always wondered how that $hit came to be.... nothing more, nothing less.

Thats what i thought too Carl.  But i dont know my 65 Bbody canadians that well.   

Could it have something to do with the ULTRA late season build?  like over 10,000 units and some different numbers/letters were in play???

Chevelles and beaumonts it was always numbers only

Calling Dano,  how do the canadian 65 Impala Serials look???

There was a chap on here that had quite a lot of info about old Toronto dealerships.
Name/Profile escapes me though.

Here's 4 data plates from 65s and 66s that I snapped 7 years ago at Flatla Auto Wreckers in AB.
Don't believe the registry was active then so don't think they were added.
Interesting how many have a B

If we ever do come across them, we should be sure to document the plate and add them. The more the better. The field cars are going away.

re Davies Pontiac Buick in Woodbridge, I suggest calling Woodbridge Library. They'll likely be able to provide some info, and if you're real lucky they'll have old yellow pages and you can maybe get a photo of a listing. Or possibly even old newspapers for old ad's.

A buddy of mine here in Calgary has a set of license plate frames from a Ford dealership in Coronado CA (now part of San Diego). With a little digging and help from the Coronado Public Library we were able to determine that dealership was only in existence for about a year in the late 60's. Someone with a Mustang from that dealership would likely be interested in those frames.
