The first five #'s are the model number

1st symbol is a 4 - indicating Buick Motor Division
2nd - 5th indicate the series and body style (2dr/4dr/sedan/coupe/HT/etc.)

6th number represents the year '1966'

7th number is the plant code:
B=Baltimore
C=Southgate, California
D=Doraville, GA.
H=Flint, MI.
I=Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
K=Leeds, MO.
V=Bloomfield, MI.
X=Fairfax, KS.
Y=Wilmington, DE
Z=Freemont, OH.

The last six numbers represent the sequential order of production at each plant.

Hope that helps you out
