Seems like original window stickers (Moroney labels) are pretty scarce. I have searched the internet and have come up blank when looking for and example of a 2007 GXP sticker.

Can anyone post or send me a picture of their original 2007 sticker, I am trying to make a reproduction for my car (one that looks like the factory sticker).

I would be interested in any year 2006-2009, NA, GXP, Coupe stickers also.

Thanks...….

I can't help you with a GXP label because I have a Sky, but I did check out MonroneyLabels.com and their sample car label for a 2007 Sky does not match my actual label. The information is complete, but the format is different.

I am amazed that with all of the fanatic collectors on this forum, no one has their original label.

I have mine needless to say it's in safekeeping and I have a repro one for the Chevelle which is OEM quality , I had to send in a copy of the build sheet before they would make one .After I received it I inquired about reproducing one for the Solstice and they were not interested same goes for the PHS (Pontiac Historical Society ) :frown2:

I actually have two, one the owner gave me that is laminated and the other one I found in the pocket behind the passenger seat. the laminated one is slightly larger but not as legible as the other. I don't now if he enlarged it to copy and laminate or what the story is. Here is a pic of the more legible one.

I have been making reproduction window stickers for the Buick community as a hobby for quite a while and it started by having to make one for my own 68 GS and expanded to 1959 thru 1976 Buicks. Buicks are not as popular as other brands so there was no interest in anyone making "accurate" reproductions, so I filled the hole.

The GXP that I just bought did not have its original sticker so I am going to reproduce one, that is why I need at least one copy (picture) of an original 2007 GXP. I purchased an original 2007 Gran Prix window sticker off ebay so I could copy the format, now I just need some other info off of Solstice stickers.

I could expand into all Solstices (years and models) if my 2007 sticker works out and if anyone is interested. The Buick reproductions I make are reasonably priced and have received very good reviews. I am a regular guy and not a business, everything is done on my laptop and home printer.

From what I have seen, 2006 and 2007 use the same format, 2008 & 2009 use the same format.

This is the template I made for 06/07.

Well honk my hooter if it isn't Mike Trom, and he's a Sol GXP owner now too.

Howdy do Mike, how's the Buick scene these days? V8Buick . com doing well? How's the BPG?

Yep, a slight change in pace from my '68 GS Convertible (still have it). Really enjoying the GXP.
Still on V8 once in a while and the BPG no longer exists. Figured I would keep my screen name consistant, I got nothing to hide 0:)

A few weeks ago I posted this . . . .

Never heard of them so surfed there right away ! Thanks for pointing me to this company !


Be aware that above url takes one to the incorrect website, it is monroneylabelS.com with an S

https://monroneylabels.com/

Just got me one

This is what I got . . . . .



BTW: One can also get copies of the GM Vehicle Invoice from GM Heritage Website
Just received an email from them with a url to go to when I want to change the window sticker . . .

Nice and handy in case they got it wrong. They also let you include after market stuff in order to get an up to date sticker in case you are selling the car again.

They even provided a FOR SALE sign complete with QR code that takes the potential buyer to a webpage with all the car details and your contact information (in case you included that data)

Here's my original window sticker. I haven't pulled it out in the last twelve years. It seems to have faded a bit but it brought back a bunch of memories. I was about to pull the trigger on a red GXP close to home, but I wanted to at least see a yellow one first. 'Miss Complicated' was sitting on the second floor of a Cadillac dealership. She was advertised online as an automatic but when I saw that she was a 5 speed I bought her before I drove her.

For me, yellow is a love/hate color, it depends on the shade and the car it is on. There are few yellow cars I would consider, but this was one of them. Every option except for the chrome pedals.

I have one hiding somewhere for the car that got smashed.
The 3 other carss were all purchased 'previously owned', so the location of stickers for these cars is unknown...

Seems the layout of the Monroney reprints do not resemble the originals one bit.
Not too surprising considering the extremely prominent QR code and that nobody would have had a convenient way to read them until the development of the smartphone in late 2008. ;)

I just realized when looking at mine that there is no dealer listed in the "delivered to" section. It just says General Motors, Detroit. I know from the original owner bought it from a dealer in northern IL. It had 2900 miles on it when he purchased it in July of '08. The title he had said it was previously titled in IL so it was probably a trade in or used by the dealer for those first months. The mfg. date is 08/07 so it was most likely sold and traded in.

Yeah, already planned to delete that on mine, but now I realize that the looks of the Monroney labels are non-sense I will not bother.

Below are several images I have that may help and the 378 GM Canada is for my 2009 Solstice Coupe. Hope this helps and I feel your pain as I too went thru the process of reproducing my window sticker.
