#'s and *'s on Build Sheets

Just wondering why certain RPO codes on my build sheet are preceded by a pound (#) sign and some codes are preceded by an asterisk (*).

Re: #'s and *'s on Build Sheets

Mark,

Thanks for your reply. I guess this falls under the category of Not Reading The Fine Print. As many times as I have scrutinized my broadcast sheet, I never noticed the tiny legend down in the r.h. corner.

As we both have observed, at first blush there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why some options are preceded by these symbols and other options are not. Even more confusing is the fact that while both my vinyl top and console are preceded by a # (Body Shop), so is my transmission! Go figure.

At any rate, it would be interesting if someone has some knowledge that they can share with the rest of us.

Re: #'s and *'s on Build Sheets

They aren't even consistent between cars from the same plant. A quick look at three sample Malibus from Baltimore shows two C56 I/P SIDE VENT with an equal sign (=) [body shop] and one with an asterisk (*) [standard]. Same items on KC sheets (both Malibu and El Camino) list it as C56 UPR LVL VENT with notations of = [body shop/trim shop]. Same item on Atlanta sheets are C56 I/P SIDE VENT with =* preceding.

The Baltimore sheets have # [body shop] preceding manual trans. applications where KC and Atlanta does not.

Just one of those things we'll probably never really know and something else that varied from plant to plant.

Yeah, the same for fullsize. With the *, the lower model cars won't have it on some things like malibus for example do. I know on fullsize cars, with the lighting groups for example, it was standard on impala so there is a * next to it but there is not one next to it on a belair sheet because it was optional. Most factories I have seen use the * but others do not use the # and %.

Re: #'s and *'s on Build Sheets

I can see the bodyshop symbol beside the trans option, because the 4 speed floor and an auto floor are different in the hump area for 70-72.
My Atl. LS5 sheet even has a ( beside the tire option. Figure THAT one out!

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.

But, again, only on certain plants and apparently even then only sometimes with the # symbol on manual trans. None of my Atlanta sheets have anything beside the manual trans code and even the M40 is mixed, some with = and some without even when both have a console whether they're 396, 454, or even 350.

Is kinda strange about the ( before the tires though, I see that too.
