Dealer Code Database

This information is compiled from information gathered from members and others.  It is not guaranteed for accuracy.  General Motors assigned zone and dealer numbers to active dealers at the time of assignment.  As dealerships changed ownership and went out of business the dealer number may be re-assigned to other new dealerships.  For this reason dates are included with this information where known.

To perform a search:
Enter the terms that you wish to search on in each category.  You can search on one or all categories at once.  To narrow your search try to fill in as many categories as you know.  You can find all of the dealers in a state, or you can find all of the dealers in a Zone, it is up to your creativity.  You can search for a partial item also.  If you are looking for a dealer name such as "Woods Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac" you can search on "Woods".  That will bring up all dealers with "Woods" in their name.  If you don't find anything you need then it may not have been entered yet.  If and when you find it please enter it here to share with everyone.

About 'Zone' and Dealer Codes:
These were listed on the window sticker and build sheet and denoted the area and dealer that the car was destined to be delivered to. Finding this info on your classic will determine where your vehicle was originally sold.

If you have an original window sticker, this info should be on the sticker...probably near the upper left below or beside the dealer's address. The number is written, usually, as a five digit #...the first two are the Zone # and the remaining three are the dealer #. and of course it's on the build sheet too.

A note about the window sticker, it sits right below the "Chevrolet Motor Division General Motors Corporation" print (at least for 1970) and was written as 27-208.

Canadian cars may list the number as a unit: 81900 - this would be zone 81 dealer 900 (from GM production sheet).
