    Depending on the last 6 digits of your VIN, you need to get the information from either the Sloan Museum, or Wayne Roberts. Then send that to Mike.

    Mike did one for me as well. The upcharge for the lamination is worth it. Thanks again Mike

    If the last six digits of your VIN are greater than 193552 then contact Wayne Roberts with the GS Historic Society. The Cost is $75 or $150 for a rush.

  11. Guys & Girls,

    I just received my Reproduction Window Sticker from Mike in the mail yesterday and let me tell you it is one of a kind, it is now one of my favorite pieces to my car! Mike is top notch and does amazing work, I just can't say that enough! So if you don't have one of these for your Buick yet then you need to get in-touch with him at the E-Mail listed above in Post # 33 and get him to make you one.

    Thanks again Mike!

    Just need to decide how to configure mine (original, as being built, or both). The one you did for a previous owner of my Stage 1 is great! Has the SCO 14" wide oval tires.

    Here's a question you may know the answer to: My '70 GS came with a painted top - It's on the trim tag and there's physical evidence but it was not on Wayne's microfiche. He said it drove him a bit nuts and concluded that through a clerical error, Buick must've never invoiced the dealer for it. If that's the case, do you know whether it would've been on the window sticker? I would have you make the sticker w/it regardless but I'm curious if it would've been on there originally.

    My "Guess" is that if it is not on the invoice it would not have been on the window sticker since both of those documents came from the factory. But there is the possibility of a clerical error omitting it soooooo, its hard to say with any certainty if it would have made it to the original window sticker or not. Sorry, not much help :rolleyes:

    Thanks Mike - I was curious. I suspect the window stickers were put on sometime during the assembly process and the car was invoiced as soon as it rolled off the line (hence I assume the invoice date is the assembly date more or less) as that was when the clock started ticking for GMAC to start collecting interest but not sure if all that data was entered only once to generate both (all) docs &/or how automated it all was back then.

    It appears the window stickers were printed ahead of time and then the VIN was added to the sticker (hence the different font on the last 6 digits of the VIN) once the VIN was married to the body.
    It may have been printed when the build sheet was printed.

    That's interesting but not surprising that they couldn't coordinate it that far in advance. Another board member & I were talking about this and concluded that the VIN was stamped on the engine/trans @ the assy. plant and based on what you're saying it was probably put on the window sticker there too. Wayne Roberts has an interesting story that pretty much confirmed the engine/trans part but I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to share it.

    Mike's window stickers are top notch and great conversation pieces at car shows and cruises. People will stop and read them and engage you in conversation about your car, if you enjoy that kind of thing.

    X2, I put mine in the rear side window every car cruise. People love reading them. I always ask them if they wished they could go back in time and buy one for that price.:)

    Since I have a stepchild 68 GS I think more people look at my window sticker than the car...:p
