The number of 1967 Chevy IIs built seems to vary depending what site you're looking at, but it's about 106,000. Using 10 months of production and 5 day weeks, less holidays, there are about 210 production days. That works out to about 500 cars per day average. It appears September, 1966, was a 5 week production month beginning Monday, August 29. This means the first 67s built Wednesday, August 31, would be included in September production numbers, which appears to be the case. Lets assume 500 cars a day were built, so that's 1500 in the first week (3 days), plus 2000 the following week (Monday was a holiday) and 2500 in week #3. That's 6000 cars, but first month production was usually lower than those following, so maybe 4500- 5000 cars. Does this mesh with your known sequence numbers? This would put the last '67 hood emblem at the end of production week #3, September 16, 1966. That's 12 production days and almost 2 months after it was removed from the assembly manual. Most of the above is estimating and guessing, but fun to do.

Yes that matches up...the white car in my previous post is the highest at 4803. Thanks for the production info. I wasn't aware of the number of days worked per week or number of months. I was just dividing 106,000 by 12 for my guess, which is a higher number than you came up with. With your estimate I may never find a later built car with an emblem.

I have photos of the cowl tag, VIN tag, and other documentation for the car with a VIN of 1776. It is a 6cyl SS. Cowl says 09A (first week in Sep 66) and it was delivered to the owner on Nov 5th. The body number on the Cowl is 181.

Mike's car has 09A on the cowl, but was built on Sep 14th (third week of September) and the Body number is 344.

Mike if you want to discuss the last 4 of your VIN here we can get an idea of how fast the cars were being produced. I know what it is but won't post without your permission.
