VIN decoding per the chevy van shop manual supplement (ST 36): G1205 = 1/2 ton light duty forward control van, the first "5" is the last number of the model year: G12*5*5, the assembly plant is the "P", GM truck, the unit numbers start at 100001 for each year, so your's was the 15225th built during the 1965 production run. this info is applicable for 64-66, i am not sure about the 67-70's. good luck.
