Oshawa-built GTO Judges actually have WT1 (Judge) and M20 or M21 stamped on the trim tag. Seen L34 on some Oshawa Chevelle trim tags too.
Yes, up through 1970, they coded all the pertinent RPO codes on the trim tag. Iíve bought cars without ordering the paperwork first just by looking at the trim tag. I figured they kept meticulous records of cars crossing the border in either direction, but still great that you can get the VVS report for non-Oshawa built cars, even if itís missing some production figures.

That makes perfect sense.
