is a february/march car considered an early build? i believe heads are B dated, i will have to review that at some point. It will not find its way back in there, under my stewardship however.

Had this T been ordered with the GT-37 option, it would indeed be considered an "early" 71 as the style of stripes, as well as deletion of the GT-37 emblem on each fender takes place very close to the third week of March of '71.

Styles of body stripes...
Being a T-37, this Canyon Copper T-37 if ordered with D98 appearance stripes would have arrived at the dealer with red/white thin eyebrow stripes. A dealer desiring to add the factory stripes back then, thats the style of stripes that would have been added.

The long reflective sword style stripes with GT-37 cutouts were introduced on the 71 1/2 GT-37's. The plain (no GT-37 cutout) style sword style fender stripes were not used until the '72 LeMans were built with D98 appearance stripes.

ok, i am starting to understand lol. it is only a t37 not a gt which would/could have come with stripes. this t37 is very lightly optioned. compared to a few phs i have reviewed of real gt37 cars.
the auto trans upcharge is the 2 speed over the standard 3 speed manual?
thank you for sharing your experience of these cars

Auto trans would be the THM 350 instead of the 3 spd manual that would have come stock. Neat car, great colors, get rid of that vinyl top because it didn't come with it.

its def a 2 speed, the 35j in the build sheet, dictates that. I picked the trans up today.
hopefully this is better shot of the build sheet.
If any one wants this thing pm me. I have already begun collecting parts for it. If it stays great if you want it more than me great lol

Makes total sense to me, can go through all the invoice copies I have from the GT-37 Survey to see if any deviance. The general rule is a 71 233 series factory equipped with 350 2bbl & no AC, when optioned with auto trans received a BOP cased Glide. This style Glide was only avail for right around 2 1/2 model years.

With factory AC AND optioned with factory AC, same 350- 2bbl 233 would get a T-350.
Nearly every 71 GT-37 partscar I hauled in were 350 2bbl, auto, factory AC cars. Factory AC was very common in the South even on the 70 & 71 233's.

Believe the rods & swivels are different for the Glide. Been quite a while since pulled a BOP Glide.
Will ck 71 dated Pontiac Master Parts book after dinner.

I have a 71 1/2 GT37 that I have used as a race car for about 30 yrs. I converted from a 3 speed factory floor shift , to a t350, t400 and now a bop power glide, all column shifted.
Feel free to call me regarding shift linkage options Bill 612-209-8288. Too old to type that much! ��
