Weird Holden HR Body Code

Hi all, my HR body code is a bit strange. It doesn’t say what transmission it had. It is HR2106-3367S
Basically, it says it’s a Ute, and it is but it says it is the 33rd made in Sydney, and made in 67, which doesn’t make much sense.

Wouldn't that be the 3,367th , and tags don't indicate transmission?

Early Holdens had no motor or transmission code on the body Id tag. They only had an M (Manual) or A (Auto) after the model code. So yours should say 2106M if it is a manual.
All the body tag identified was the body, model (standard, special, Premier, ute, van, sedan, wagon) and the trim and paint codes as well as the body assembly plant. If there is a number after Insert it mans your car had a different colour roof, ususlly white.
HR is the model code, 2106 is the early Holden ute body code, 6733 means your ute body was the 6,733rd ute body made at Pagewood, in Sydney. It is not the 33rd ute body made in Sydney in 1967.
There is no date coding on an early Holden body Id tag.

Old is good.

Only Brisbane and Melbourne placed an M or A on the tag for auto or manual in HR. Adelaide and Sydney did not.

The only date coding on an early Holden tag is 48 and FJ have the month of manufacture on the tag.

Was that only HR that wasn't tagged M or A in Sydney and Adelaide?
They definatley did it in Sydney in late 1963. Our EH tag says EH 225M 1028S. It's a very early Sydney Manual Special body.

According to Holdens Black Book, Sydney stopped doing this at HD.

Melbourne at HK

Adelaide at HD

Brisbane part way through HQ.
