Outstanding! Dupage, what is that expensive option? Am I reading disc brake? Nothing beats original paperwork!

Thanks for sharing

dupageauto.....your build sheet is interesting, in that I've never seen one that was hand printed. Most of it is easy to understand, except for the scribbling of the first line.
5016 is the sequential body number, meaning it was the 5016th body constructed by the Fisher Body Division at the Atlanta Georgia plant (first body would have been 1001.) 2119 signifies a Catalina (21) four-door sedan (19.)

The options and accessories are; "A"-Hydramatic Transmission, "BA"-Basic Group, "DC"-Decor Group, "P"-Front License Plate Bracket, and "PA"-420E economy engine.
Trim 201 is the code for the upholstery, which is "charcoal "Pasadena" cloth with silver and ivory "Seville Grain Morrokide."

Most of the above is also reflected on the trim tag. The BA before the body number is the code for the Fisher Body plant in Atlanta, Georgia. The A in your Vin tag is for Atlanta also. The paint codes are "A" Regent Black lower body and "C" Cameo Ivory upper body.

Note that on your trim tag, only the Decor Group "DC" is stamped on the accessory line. Keep in mind that, Fisher Body was not the finished car assembly plant, and were only concerned with what they needed to put on the body before sending it to the BOP assembly plant.

Some interesting items on the sales form that I'll mention in a later post. Time for bed......John

John, I thought it was weird being written in pen also. But I actually removed it from the hog ring that fastened it to under seat. In the bottom left hand corner of the sheet where it looks stained brown from a few of the springs it was attached to there is a code that looks like a QC just before the PA. Thanks for your help the car matches all info you gave me. The car had plastic seat covers on it and I had tor remove because they were discolored. Just wondering if they might have been factory installed.

dupageauto.....sorry I missed that QC. Please forgive an old man's eyesight. That code is for the spare tire cover, which I see is still in the trunk. After rereading my last post, let me correct what I said about the body number. The first body built would be 1 not 1001. I was thinking about the VIN that starts with car 1001 for each series at each plant......John
