Whats the difference between a protect o plate and a cowl tag. Ive seen reference to both of these on my other posts (by the way thanks to all that replied). Does a 68 have both and where are they both located. I have a plate on the drivers side firewall but cant find any other plate. Thanks in advance. MARKO

The cowl tag or trim tag is the metal plate that is riveted to the firewall next to the brake cylinder or wiper motor. This tag has information regarding the build date, color of the interior and exterior. On the 67's it also has codes that identify specific options like transmission, engine(most cases), console, rally sport, etc. The 69's have a code that helps to identify some of the engine combinations. The protect-o-plate is a metal tag that comes glued to the warranty book and shows the engine, trans and rear codes as well as some other power options. That was used for warranty work. But by having the protect-o-plate, it proves what the car was originally even if the parts are missing. That's a quick overview.

The Pro-Tect-O Plate was like warrantee cridit card that the dealer used to verify the car much like how they do now by copying down the VIN coded number. They physically used it in an old credit card type machine on their paperwork that was sent in to the factory for reembursement. pdq67
