North American Rockwell Connection?

Recommended Posts

While recarpeting my '71 Avanti, I found this sticker on the driver side kick panel. Did North American Rockwell own MFG around that time? I've read that quite a few Corvettes from that era have the same sticker on various body parts.

The Ashtabula plant was built by Rockwell International in 1959. . . . made unsaturated polyester resins used in car parts, boats, shower stalls and sink tops.  Ashland Chemical Inc., bought it from Rockwell in 1979 and operated it until 2000 when production ceased.

This would have been a great Avanti Trivia question!;)

I have a similar tag on a spare door I purchased at one of the International meets. Not sure which year, but it does have the hole for the remote mirror.
