    Default C56o3671

    Hi, since am unfamiliar with the MarkII's Dataplate decoding, am hoping someone can help.

    RE my "C56O3671" MarkII, with second line of "14-7-1B6H-N":

    I don't see the letter O (after N, before P in the alphabet) listed in your decode page.
    Am 95% sure this 3671 car is a 1957 but an accurate build month would of course confirm that.

    Just received this car into my private shop and in respect to it, am trying to find out all i can about it.
    4th owner informs that he believes it to have originated in Stockton CA, then into the SF Bay Area region, then to him in Hayward CA.

    So can anyone inform anything about the 3rd character "O" on its Dataplate?

    Thanks in advance!

    Dave,

    The Authenticity Manual states that "O" was not used.

    Are you sure that it is an "O" and not a "Q"? "Q" would be February 1957. Since the first 1957 was apparently L (October 1956) 3418, your car is clearly a 1957. The last car I think was in May 1957 and number 3989.
