Re: Rear end codes and cowl tag
Dan - Welcome to Team Camaro!
The rear end decodes as a 12-bolt, 3.07 posi, assembled January 7th at the Chevy Gear and Axle Plant, 1st shift. The BR code was also used for the same axle and ratio in the 68 Model Year, so to be as sure as you can be, you'd check the casting numbers and dates on the center section. But, it lines up well with your build date.
Tag decodes as:
Decode for body number: 216738
01B = Built the Second week of January.
69-12437 = Coupe.
NOR = Built in Norwood Ohio.
712 = Custom Black Bucket Seats.
69-B = Lower Color is Cortez Silver and the Vinyl Top Color is Black.
X66 = SS396 without style trim
As long as the tag is real and lines up with the VIN, looks good for a BB car. Nice!
