I need help decoding the Fisher Body tag on my 1936. The top line is "Style" 36-1311Z. It's possible the Z is a 2. I've been able to decode the rest of the plate, but haven't been able to find anything on the "Style". Thanks for your help!

The Z indicates it is a late 1936 Standard with steel doors.

Gene If it wasn't the steel doors, were they wooden framed with sheet steel on the outside?

They are in fact all metal. The upholstery was removed by the previous owner making visual inspection very easy.

Yes,The early 1936 Standard doors and doors on all 1936 and prior GM Fisher Body cars had wood rienforced doors and general body construction.
The 1935 and 1936 bodies with steel tops did have a steel rienforced cowl and windshield area.
