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!

Re: Rear end codes and cowl tag

What do you mean by lining up with the vin, should the fisher body code be the same as the vin, i've read it shouldn't matter?

Re: Rear end codes and cowl tag

Dan the VIN and trim tag are never the same, but they need to be within a range of numbers that each tells you apox. when the numbers were assigned to that car. If a tag was swapped out, the range might no longer be in sync, meaning a clone was possibly created.
This thread should be in the TAG section too. Not the Welcome area... but welcome anyway
