Thanks Rick. This does give me more to ponder.

 I can't directly answer your question but I can give you some
 for more thought.

 I believe this was shared by Dave Newell originally (apologies if it
 someone else) but the 2 number and 1 letter code date on the Fishger
tag is
 based on this calendar calculation...

 "The Fisher Body production week began on a Monday. For the last
week, if
 the week went through a Wednesday, it was that month's week. If it
only went
 through Tuesday, it was the next month's week."

 I have been working on laying out a calendar for the 52 weeks of the
 and assigning Fisher code weeks, but I have not made it up to 67....

 Based on "how I think" it works...my thought is that the code date
would be

 May 29-31 & June 1st - 2nd = 05D or 05E depending on when May started
 June 5th - 9th =06A

 Hi everyone.

 Have a question about the date code on a Fisher Body tag. In 1967 the
 week of June started on Thursday. Would the Thursday and Friday cars
be 06A
 or would they be 05E? If it's 05E would the cars built the next
 Sunday) be 06A or 06B?
 Thanks everyone.
