    My '85 was built in Flint. It would be cool if you had worked on it.

    Nope; same parts from the same suppliers.

    The only differences might be process related, like if the ELPO dip tank was installed in one facility before the others (but that wouldn't be US/Canada specific; it would be plant-to-plant variation regardless).

    Mexican builds are different (obviously) due to laws about local content.

    I was curious because my 85 Chevy built in Canada sure seems to have better rust prevention than my 87 built in Wisconsin .

    It was probably sprayed in the great white north at the dealership.
