What is a window sticker?
Also called a Monroney Label, this is the sticker that is affixed to a brand new car when it is delivered to the consumer. A law was passed by the 85th Congress in 1958 requiring all automobile manufacturers to affix a price label to all new automobiles showing Manufacturers Suggested Retail Prices for vehicle and all options installed at the factory. This law is Public Law 85-506 and was proposed by Senator John Monroney, hence the name Monroney Label. This was to begin with the introduction of the new 1959 models. Early window stickers were very basic., listing dealer info and optional equipment only. Beginning in 1962, some manufacturers started using it as a sales tool. In addition to the options, These companies started listing standard items as well. Chevrolet started listing standard items in 1968 for all cars except the Corvette. The Corvette used the truck window sticker from 1968 through 1975 and did not list any standard items until 1976.

By your VIN# we would know what prices are correct for your car. All Corvette window stickers are priced exactly as car was originally delivered.

How can I find out where my car was delivered?
If you have a Pontiac or your car was delivered in Canada, you can find out from PHS-ONLINE.COM or from GM OF CANADA. If you have something other than these, the only thing you can do is try to trace it back to the original owner. One source of information on this is Barbara Spear’s Yankee Lady Corvette Gazette articles on tracing cars. Until you do find the correct dealer, we can choose a dealer from a particular area for you. This would be a dealer that was in business when your car was delivered. If you have a 1967 through 1972 Corvette, the dealer number and zone number are printed on tank sticker. We can help you find out who it was. Check our Corvette page for further info.
