Latest date 1980 Buildsheet or Trim Tag or Car..

Postby marco_1978_spyder » Sun Apr 17, 2011 8:38 am

I'd like to know..who has the latest date 1980 buildsheet, trim tag, or existing car?

I'll go first, I had a sunbird built on 10-13-80 (reg production was over the week of Aug 20th.)
This one is #164087 Total known production was 157,555. So there were at least 6,532 extra sunbirds made.
Day #278 @ 34 days into the extended production.

Anyone else have a 1980 car or trim tag buildsheet (Monza or Sunbird) with a later date?

If yours has a date code of 10A 10B 10C or 10D.... And the last 8 digits stat with a 2(monza) or 6(sunbird), Post it!

Cool...you hold the record now. looks like day 282 .

Wascobi and other's: This code will be on the trim tag. a 1980 trim tag is on the drivers side cowl under the hood.

On the buildsheet see the numbers in the top corner boxes and the top line where it says Body Unit Number.

As far as I know they stopped making Starfire's and Skyhawks some time in December of 1979, probably at the Christmas Shut Down, and they continued to make only Monza's and Sunbirds for the remainder of the extended model year. So if you have a Starfire built in Dec 79 you have one at the end of production run.

Hi Len, Not really all that wierd. It is a 1980 Sunbird all day long. GM gets started on next years car's mid-year, to keep up with the competition and get all dealerships supplied with stock, before the new year actually begins.

This september you should be able to find the first 2012 models appearing at busy dealerships.

The model year begins at the end of August at the factory.
