We have been serving the Mustang Hobby for over 30 years by providing quality parts with great service and reasonable prices. Here lately, quite a few people have had questions about the locations of the Ford VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on 1965 and 1966 Mustangs. Please note that there are variations and "factory mistakes" that may present exceptions to the rule.
The Casting Date on the 289 Engine is located under the area that is hidden by the starter. The surrounding areas on the Mustang are covered and taped to prevent the sealer from getting on those areas. Once we get the drive shaft completed, we should be ready to start our 65 HiPo Mustang Convertible! The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for the fullsize Chevrolets built in the United States had 4 components – the model year, the body style, the assembly plant designation, and sequential serial number. There were quite a few body style codes used from 1964-1970 due to the wide array of models available such as the Impala, Bel Air, Biscayne and Caprice. In addition to the VIN plate, the partial VIN of the car was sometimes stamped on the body in up to two places.  Starting in 1967, the partial VIN was stamped on the top of the cowl (under the cowl vent panel) or on the firewall around the opening that would be covered by the heater or air conditioning box. Oshawa starting using OS in 1967.  In previous years there was no plant designation on the cowl tag.
The typical two-tone paint code was a combination of two of the available paint codes as suggested by Chevrolet.
The convertible and vinyl top codes appear after the paint code and sometimes after the interior code. The interior code is a three digit number that shows the color, fabric type and style of the seats. On some assembly plants (except Wilmington, DE) in 1966 and 1967, a letter was used after the interior code to indicate the front seat type. If you have any data to contribute to the research of these accessory codes, we would love to see it! The only confusing thing I noticed was the comment line after each year’s interior codes. I need a help, I dont know what exaclty engine I have?, I know is a Chevrolet caprice 1966 hard top and automatic.
I’ve already knew most of the information expect for two remaining question that I have based on my car itself. 2) TAR208323: Tarrytown, New York GM plant but… what does this sequence number meant? Again, Thank for your prompt assistance solving some of those cowl tag information on my ’69 Impala ragtop. Hello if I give you a picture of my body broadcast sheet would you be able to decode it for me? Need Help!!!_________________It is better to keep silent and appear stupid, than to open your mouth and confirm it. Of course you know that the chassis VIN (under the back seat) is the only one that matters, don't you? Unless you change the chassis (or do something very illegal), your car shall be a '68 for eternity.
The only reason I remember the vin plate on the dash was that I changed out dashes in a ground up rebuild on her car. One of the things I remembered about Douglas was seeing the mule deer right at the entrance ramp coming off I-25 into Douglas.

Starting with the introduction of the Camaro in 1967 Each first generation Camaro has had a special identification tag attached to the Camaros body known as a trim tag or cowl tag as some prefer to call it. The first box on the top row is a two number code which indicates the month of the year that you car was assembled. The second row indicates from left to right the year the car was built followed by a dash and then the body style. The third line of codes starts with the interior style and color followed by a Z or Y indicating if the car had headrest seats or not. The fourth and fifth lines may be blank on your trim tag or have a series of numbers and letters like the example below.

This early format had the model year at the front followed by the body style, assembly plant designation and sequential serial number. The first part is always 1 to designate Chevrolet, 2nd for the series and 3rd for the specific body style.
It contains interesting information pertaining to the body of the car such as what week it was built, the paint and interior colors and the options that would have required modifications to the body shell.
I have a right hand drive Canadian built 65 wagon in Australia and am trying to work out original carpet, trim etc. I am having trouble determining if a 1968 Impala convertible I am interested in buying is a real SS or just a base impala. It has a strange piece of chrome on the side roof pillars in the shape of a 4 pronged star. The trim tag depending on the year of the Camaro can supply you as either the owner, potential buyer or just a simple enthusiast with a great deal of information about eh car you are looking at. For the first generation cars 1967, 1968 and 1969 the trim tag is located on the firewall between the wiper motor and the brake master cylinder. These areas have been enclosed in black boxes which you can click on to learn exactly how the codes are broken down and there meanings. This number looks a lot like the first five digits of your VIN but it actually has no direct relation.
The next code to the right is the lower body paint color and then the upper body paint or top color. If you own a car with a set of these numbers we would very much like to here from you about your car. If you do not have any options for a certain section for example no Group 3 Options but you do have Group 4 Options just leave Group 3 blank and fill in Group 4. This is not an error or an indication that something is wrong, the code on the trim tag refers to body style and interior, deluxe or standard, and is a separate code from the VIN tag identification. If the first digit in this line is a two or three then no group one options were ordered with the vehicle.
It is believed that during this time any that may have been produced may share the N code with the L35 option 396.


In the case of this code appearing the vehicle in question was a special ordered or fleet ordered vehicle. The VIN number plate can be found on 1964-1967 Chevrolets by looking at the A-pillar in the front door jamb. All body style codes in 1964 were four digits, which were changed to five for the 1965 model year.
The sequence number was used in the body plant for scheduling the shells to come down the line in order.
No trim tag though will be able to tell you more about your first generation Camaro than the tag used in 1967. The second box right next to that is a single letter code which indicates the week of the month in this case E for the fifth week of the month.
In this case it tells you if the car is a coupe or convertible and also lets you know if it is supposed to have standard or deluxe interior.
For each group the letters that follow indicate a type of option that was installed on the car. The VIN tag identification identifies number of engine cylinders and coupe or convertible body style.
In Norwood produced vehicle this number is sequential for all Camaros produced for that year. In many of the cases we have documented so far when this code appears the vehicle in question is either a Pace Car or special paint vehicle showing the O-O paint code. Starting in 1968, it was moved to the driver’s side dash panel and can be seen by looking through the windshield. The basic format remained the same though.  In addition, the body style number also appears on the cowl tag, typically in a V8 format. Starting in 1965, it was moved to the front of the firewall on the driver’s side by the brake booster. A single letter can sometimes be found in this location as well, which usually identifies the interior paint code.
The body style on the cowl tag is typically in a V8 format, even if the car came with an L6 engine.  Some plants however, did stamp a L6 body style on the cowl tag if it was to be assembled with that engine.
Some plants listed the top (vinyl or convertible) color in this location with a number and some other assembly plants used a letter in 1966 and 1967 to signify the front seat type and whether it had headrests. I don’t think its possible to tell from the VIN so any info would be helpful Thanks for your time. For those of you who are Firebird fans the trim tag for your Pontiac is located here also and shares many of the same codes.
In the same line all the way to the right is another single letter on Norwood cars which indicates the interior paint trim color for the tops of doors and the dash panel area. The next part is a 3 letter code indicating the plant of Manufacture NOR or LOS followed by a six digit unique body number assigned by the plant. So in this tags case group 1 (the one in group one is never shown) the W stands for a tinted windshield, the 2 shows an L for the manual transmission, G for console, etc. This is not always the case though and in many instances it has been documented that the vehicles have no special difference from standard production vehicles but are in fact part of a large or specially ordered fleet order for a dealer, corporation or special promotional use.
In 1969, all assembly plants except for Janesville and Lordstown start the sequence at 000001.
The general format of the cowl tag remained the same from 1964-1970 and will be explained below. In LOS cars this is an assembly sequence number which starts with a letter and followed by 3 numbers. Example for LOS is that the first standard interior coupe and deluxe interior coupe produced will both be assigned body number 1.
If you own or know of a vehicle that has the special characters after the group five options we would love to hear from you to learn more about it.
One exception is the cowl tags of cars built at Oshawa, Ontario (until 1967) and those assembled overseas. During 1964 and 1965, the Euclid, OH plant, which produced convertible and wagon bodies for final assembly at Flint, MI stamped an F in that location. Note: Wilmington put the color of the wheels as a third letter (or 2nd on convertibles) in the paint code for 1965.
