Protecto plate was an embossed metal plate that came with the GM new car owners manual back in the day. This was used to record any warranty repairs. Like the old credit card machines. The dealer inserted the plate in the work order recorder, slid the imprinter head across and all your information was imprinted on the paper.

The build sheet listed the individual parts or groups of parts that made up the car. Engine-trans-suspension-trim options etc. An assembly line copy was usually left under the rear seat or carpets on GM vehicles.
