    I have the p o p for my 69 GS400 convert but mine is unique the normal routine was when the buyer bought his car the dealer would use the dynamo gun to add the name address and in service date
    In my case the dealer sent the original buyers information to GM of Canada in Oshawa and the stamped the information into the p o p and mailed it to the customer

    I talked to George at GM historical services and he told me this service was offered but rarely used
    In my opinion that makes my p o p very rare indeed

    Got the P-O-P, original dealer invoice of the sale, and lots of other paper work for the 67 Sportwagon. Happen to have a 65 Corvette coupe that has it all plus letter from GM Chevrolet general manager thanking the first buyer for purchasing the Corvette.

    Through the POP of my 68 Wildcat I got in contact with the first owner. Unfortunately the lovely lady deceased a few months after. Was never able to show her the promised photos of the Cat. Did also got in contact with the daughter of the Pontiac-Buick dealer that sold the car new. She provided me with a NOS dealer emblem.

    Yeah, the plate was stamped at the factory, then the peel & stick installed at the dealer.

    My 1969 GS 400 convertible still has: Window sticker, POP, warranty booklet, accessory booklet, sales invoice, contract, insurance info, sales persons business card, license plate frame, 4 build sheets (the fifth is still on the fuel tank), all of the safety cards and every receipt from all of the service work performed up until 2013.. I think the only parts not original are the tires, the exhaust, 1 or 2 of the hoses, ignition parts (cap, wires, plugs, and rotor), and the enamel paint job from 1989.

    Yep, factory embossed the plate, then the dealer embossed the peal and stick label with the buyers info... And yes, I have my 71 GS conv pop.
