hello i have a license plate i believe is form the 33' fair in chicago. I don't know if it's from the cheverolet assembly line they had there or what. i also have a plate topper i believe is from the fair . if anyone has seen a plate like this could you let me know. or if you no the history of it that would be great.
Yes, that plate was put on the Chevrolet cars that came off of the C of P assembly line. It is rare. Certainly valued into 3 figures but I'm not sure how far.

And for us map afficionados, yes there is a map! I guess it ties to those position numbers in the first photo. Too bad this map isn't high resolution to read it.
But good news- you can get it on eBay, get a better scan, and share it here!
Here is a different brochure, with the position indicators explained, but minus the map. It includes a nice panorama view
I found a reference that says that GM had to close their plant in Janesville, Wisconsin in 1932 due to the depression. But they took 200 of the Janesville workers down to Chicago to work on the Chevrolet assembly line at the World's Fair. The Janesville plant reopened in 1934.
Here are the identifier numbers for the cars that came off the World's Fair assembly line.
