    You can look anywhere but they are usually under the rear shelf and the Fisher sheet is usually under the front seat.

    You might not find any more sheets, most guys don't find any.

    Fremont cars for ‘70-‘72 do commonly have a sheet on top of the gas tank. We have not dropped our tank yet but I’ve seen several other people posting that they had a sheet taped to the tank. I saw this one posted today by someone working on their ‘70 Skylark that was assembled at the Fremont plant.

    That's great! Dropping your gas tank is a lot of work but was very rewarding for you since the sheet was there and appears to be very legible. I can even see that your car was "XXX CUSTOMER ORDER." I can only imagine your response when you dropped that tank and saw that sheet laying there. Maybe I should dig our car back out of storage and drop the tank in hopes of finding a 4th sheet in the same car. That would be a record for us.

    Thanks for posting the outcome of your search.

    I was very excited.. almost like hunting for a treasure:D
    First took a look with a small mirror and a flashlight and saw a piece of paper on one side of the tank. Put a Jack under the tank and unscrewed one tank strap, lowered the Jack and carefully peeled the sheet off the top of the tank.
    Took me one hour..
