    1965 Buick Skylark Sport Coupe (V8, Two Door Hardtop) Data Plate Decode

    Hello,

    I am looking for help identifying all of the info my data plate offers.

    Here is the plate.

    data plate.jpg

    Between the VIN and data plate I have the following.

    1stDigit - Division
    4= Buick
    2ndand 3rd Digits - Series
    44= Skylark V8 (1965-67)
    4thand 5th Digits - Body Code
    37= 2 Door Hardtop Coupe
    6thDigit - Model Year
    5= 1965
    7thDigit - Assembly Plant Code
    Z= Fremont, CA

    154- Ivory Vinyl with Bucket Seats

    The paint code appears to be CCA? Which would be a combo of Arctic White and Regal Black......I think.

    Any help with a full decoding would be very helpful. Thank you!

    do you have a vinyl roof? the A would be the color of the top.

    I do not have a vinyl roof but my car has been extensively modified by a few previous owners. It is entirely possible is used to have one.

    I will say I'm happy my car is black over black now instead of white on white with a vinyl roof..... haha

    I think the A in the paint code indicates Regal Black wheels.


    3A = build date = March (03) 1965, first week (A)
