DSO info

Postby Baldy » Fri Sep 16, 2016 1:55 pm

Just to keep a long story short, back in the 80's when Dad had 'Lizabeth painted the first time, the SOB did something with the door tag. I don't know why, Hell, he painted everything else (thank God). Now, Marti can recreate it, but, I have to supply all the info. I've got all the blanks filled in except the DSO one. It was a Loraine built car and sold here in good old Springfield, Tn. Do y'all know what the DSO would have been?

Baldy DSO stands for domestic special order. If your car wasn't special ordered it would not have codes stamped in that area. If you have special options you may want to put ...I'd guess the closest to springfield - Memphis code down,but it is a guess. code 26 on this site, scroll down to DSO codes;

My car was built in Lorain and DSO for Los Angeles! Odd, considering there was a plant in LA, but hey it's only money to ship a car cross country, right?

Maybe they didn't have any PCV valves left in LA at the time.
