'65 Greenbrier Production Numbers By Month
Dave Newell kindly provided me with the serial number of the last Greenbrier built each month, from official Chevy production records.
1965 Greenbriers were produced only through the end of calendar year 1964.

Percent of Total
(*) No units were produced in October due to a GM / United Auto Workers strike.
The production total of 1528 is a little curious—why not stop at 1500? Dave Newell has a theory:
"For the '65 model year, 1500 units were probably scheduled and 1500 sets of parts ordered... Perhaps 28 more sets were scrounged together, but GM does not normally stockpile parts. There were always some left over, though. (The sheet metal was stamped and built into sub-assemblies at Indianapolis, as needed by Flint or St. Louis.)"
