Need help w build sheet

I have found some build sheets under the back seat of my Great-Grandmothers car. I need some help decoding it along with some number we found on the block while replacing the timing chain. Is there anyone that knows of a site that can help me decode this information? We are restoring her and I am very curious to see what my ggmother ordered her with. The interior is in mint condition.

I wonder if he's talking about the '65 Pontiac Grand Prix in his username? If so, there are a bunch of places where he can decode the block numbers, but I don't know of anything specific to the build sheet.

One place to decode various information is - under the "restore" menu selection.

The ultimate - as far as Pontiac information goes - is to hit up Pontiac Historical Services - - and see what they can do. You give 'em the VIN and some other information, and they send you a huge pack of information, ranging from dealer documents/bulletins of the era to a copy of the actual invoice. I did this for my '78 Trans Am, and the packet I got back had to have been almost 1/2" thick - well worth the cost I thought.

Hope that helps,
- Mike
