From what I have heard they used drum and daisywheel impact printers - both of which were line printers. A letter or call to Marti Auto Works might clear this up but I don't have the time right now.Same as my Eminger invoice. I thought it was a line printer they used or am I dating myself.
The line printer I remember was a set of spinning wheels lined up to cover a page.From what I have heard they used drum and daisywheel impact printers - both of which were line printers. A letter or call to Marti Auto Works might clear this up but I don't have the time right now.
BTW I am dealing with OLD MEMORY myself and the storage medium (my brain) has deteriorated in quality over time. LOL

I was in the same dilemma back in 2016 when I stripped my 71 J Code Vert down for restoration. I wound up having to have both doors chemically dipped to remove the surface rust on the interior of the door (Arizona car... no rust. LOL). I was able to heat up the area behind the door data label and then peel the label off in one piece. I keep it with the paperwork I have for the car and of course, installed a Marti replacement on the restored car.......But you know,..........I have a replacement door data sticker on my Mach, which I bought from Marti. My intention was to replace what needed to be there after a complete car body stripping and re-paint. I'm sure I'm not alone on this, so don't worry. It's just one of those things that will eventually need replacing. Funny, now and again someone will ask me about my car. I have actually caught myself saying " ...It's all original...", then I have to add "....well, more accurately, It's stock, but over the last 30 years I've replaced or rebuilt almost everything from interior to driveline to paint, but I haven't changed anything...."
