I could use the headlight buzzer from that. (T63)

These numbers are indeed late production run figures...

With this information looks like you hold the keys to the newest monza in existence! :shock:

Any signatures under the carpet in the trunk area? They may have went on to build more, I vaugly remember reading that they went up until Christmas break of 1980.

I'll look for the signatures, as for being the newest one in existance, too bad that the underside is in such rough shape.

P.M. me about the buzzer. I wouldn't know all the parts I would have to take out for that.

Nov 26, 1980 was the day before Thanksgiving.

That makes sense.

Marco,

Here's the trim tag for my 1980 Sunbird Formula. Looks like it was built the last week of January 1980.

Marco,
I found a Monza that is titled as an 81 and the last six of the vin are 300728.
Is this a late production Monza?
Thanks,
Bill

I would say it is a late production Monza. Marco will probably be able to tell you how many days away yours was made from the very last Monza. I think he even knows the last day they were made?

This pic is from GM Heritage and according to them it is the last Monza ever made. So there were 3,206 Monza's between yours and the last one made.

Thanks Brian,

That's what i found after some research. Marco said late production was 607 per day so Mine was last 5-6 days of production.

Thanks,
Bill

The VIN suggest's it is.. The trim tag date should read 11B,C o rD The body unit number will be valuable too..should be on the buildsheet if you can get that too.
