I was asking about the DECAL. it's also used on 1964 "B"body cars the vendor stated . the decal was on the core support in 64 on "A" bodies. Vendor sent the photo to show the DECAL only.

Only difference is kerning of the type (spacing). if you want an exact match you may have to have it printed yourself. My early 66' did not have any sticker on the core support. Here is a little pic from my car before i stripped it to show how these stickers were sometimes haphazardly placed at the factory. These cars were mass produced on an assembly line by humans. In a perfect world we like to think they used a template or actually measured as i am sure you will.

I actually managed print shops in the Detroit area for over a decade and can't tell you how many times we had to re-set type and adjust schedules for short runs to keep the lines fed, so over the years and in different plants there might have been slight variations on any given car. I will admit after 6 beers for lunch, my jacking instructions do appear to be much straighter........ Just my .02.
