1968 GTO. To verify further, match your VIN number up with the VIN number stamped on the frame - they need to be the same.

What is the A1 code? What about T in sequence after B?

Try this website and see if it helps. Select the Data tag type and then fit in your info: Welcome to DataTagDecoder.Com | DataTagDecoder.Com

Also, PHS documents usually tell you what the codes are.

I haven’t bought it yet so trying to see what I might buy. T in cowl and A1 doesn’t make sense to me.

The trim tag (which is what you posted a photo of) is stamped and affixed to the body when the body is made. Assembly of the body began during the first week of March (03A). The final assembly/invoice date would likely be 2nd or 3rd week of March....the Billing History Card provided by PHS (for a fee) will have the invoice date.

68-24237 is a 1968 GTO hardtop.

BT means the body was built at the Arlington Fisher plant. This means the car was almost certainly assembled at the GM final assembly plant in Arlington as well. If true....there will be an R in the 7th place of VIN for this car. In 1968, the Final Assembly plant in Arlington TX only assembled Chevrolet and Pontiac models.

Trim 225 should be for a Medium Red interior color.

A1 is exterior color. Black car with white/ivory Cordova top

That is about as far as we can go with the trim tag info. The PHS docs will show what options were ordered with the car. (Engine, trans, gauges, radio, wheels, etc)

Thanks for info. What would this model in fair condition roughly go for with ws engine and 4 spd? Solid body but needs a lot of smaller items.

WS is the HO engine option. With the 4 speed it is fairly desirable...next in line after the Ram Air models.

Market is soft right now. Hard to place value as I would not buy any car from areas prone to rust issues. I realize this severely limits my selection but I am tired of saving cars that live in those regions.

No rust issues that I can tell. Hideaway lamps not working and I’m sure some body work will be needed.
Would 15 be too high for this with factory drivetrain?

Sounds like a good deal for a complete car in fair condition with no rust.
