Now that you know where to find the hidden VIN numbers on your car we just need to decode what these numbers mean. To learn about Camaro Trim Tag decoding for specific years click on the link below for the desired year.
Decoding the trim tag in 1971 is not really any different than that of decoding the trim tag for 1970.
Whereas the 1969 trim tag had an X Code the 1971 Norwood built Camaro trim tags now for certain options used the RPO (Regular Production Order) code instead so for example a Camaro equipped with the SS 396 L78 375hp engine would have L78 clearly marked on the trim tag. When it comes to decoding 1971 Camaro trim tags it is pretty straight forward like the 1969 tags. Listed below is information that will help you understand more about your trim tags option codes and what they mean.
Two digit code referring to the calendar month that the vehicles body was scheduled for production. Individual Body Sequence number assigned by the Fisher Body plant prior to production of the vehicle.
For single color vehicle (upper and lower paint match) refer to the lower body color chart. These Q2-Q9 codes have not been observed in any vehicles but are mentioned for completeness.


The primary VIN tag which includes the complete Vehicle Identification Number and two hidden VIN locations which include a partial VIN stamped into the bodies sheet metal. Both of these numbers are partial VIN numbers and should be an exact match with the VIN tag mounted to the door pillar.
The only real change of difference to most people is that RPO Z27 for the small block super sport will appear much more often on the trim tag than it did in 1970. The Los Angeles built cars would still not receive identification of individual RPO codes but instead would carry two internal codes that were 6 digits long each. In the case of the RPO codes that were added to the tags for 1971 as opposed to the codes found on 1970 tags in 1971 in particular the RPO Code for the Super Sport Option Z27 will appear on nearly all actual Super Sports as opposed to the hit or miss nature the year before.

A rosette rivet is a rivet that that has an outer edge that looks similar to an asterisk as opposed to being completely round.
The location remained the same as it did in 1970 located on top of the cowl area near the drivers side hood hinge as shown in the photo below.
On the Los Angeles trim tags like earlier years the two sets of six digit codes are internal plant codes. In some cases there is only one rosette holding the VIN tag in place with the other rivet being a round rivet.


To access these two VINs will require a little work first by removing the upper cowl panel and windshield wipers to clearly access the upper hidden VIN and for the second hidden VIN the heater blower motor needs to be removed which is very labor intensive requiring removal of the passenger side fender in most cases. We have several pretty well founded theories on exact usage and decoding of these codes but at this time it is not supported by enough evidence to post just yet. If your car or a car you are considering purchasing has two round rivets holding the VIN tag in place you will want to exercise a little caution and check a few other aspects of the car prior to purchase.
In the future once more research has been done we will add this information to the decoding section here.
Two round rivets do not guarantee that there is any type of problem with your vehicles Vehicle Identification Number tag but it does indicate that at some point it may have been removed form the car for one reason or another.
In this case you will want to make sure to inspect and verify the two hidden VINs stamped into the cars body to verify they match the last 8 digits of the metal VIN tag at the door pillar.
The most worrisome of the reasons that people remove a tag for is what is known as a rebody where a car with a poor condition body but high value options such as a big block or Z28 has its VIN removed and attached to a lower value body that is in far better condition.
