I wonder if the rivets at the factory were linked together like roofing nails are today, thus having small wire links between them?:confused:

Does the vehicle have special paint?

I have a note in my book on another 69 Chevelle from Leeds Assembly with AVO171 on the tag and the car had - - for the paint codes.

The AVO just points to some internal plant work order for the speical non-standard model year paint. Its likely more that one car was built to this (standing) AVO job number and why they put it on the tag.

AVO171 could be the work order number or it could indicate the number of cars painted this color, I don't know. I can't find where I noted what AVO stands for or if I ever knew that.
