'69 Decode help

I've been to the chevelle stuff site and can't find a couple of things off this trim tag. The L in the lower right and the the 02323 on the lower right.


Also I know this doesn't "prove" that the car is an SS, but are these options consisitent with an original SS car?



last question, the block was decked when it was rebuilt, I found a number above the oil filter that reads: high perf pa88 K14
does this give anyone a clue? is there another place around the oil filter to find a vin#?

Thanks in Advance!

Re: '69 Decode help

I can't figure out what the second picture is but the rag joint upper flange is big block (bolt on rather than pressed on)

Dean. Not so sure that's an absolute. I found this bolted on coupler on a 69 300 Deluxe w/307-4 speed car that's been to more than a few midwest-area shows the past few years.

That's because (1) nobody knows what they mean or (2) they aren't telling. Soon as I can find anything definitive, it'll be posted

sorry, I couldn't get a very good pic. It's looks like a brace that attaches to the rear differential. I also saw some cross braces near the lower control arms. Is this the F41 suspension package?

I looked again on the vertical pad by the oil filter and I couldn't see or feel anything but a rough surface....

Re: '69 Decode help

The 02323 is part of what was called the DP SEQ NO, the number was anywhere from 8 to 12 digits long and they often only placed the portion of it that helped them ID this body along the body shop lines so that when it came into the body bank on the Chevy part of the plant, it got matched up to the order in the Data Processing System. Each car had a unique set of numbers. On Leeds cars and ONLY Leeds cars, the DP SEQ NO is the Body number + 02323. So the complete DP SEQ NO XXXXXX 02323. (You Leeds built owners with build sheets, look and you will see)

It was used for internal plant processing and has no useful info on the car. Those were similar to the bar codes of today.


DP SEQ NO - Data Processing Sequence Number

There are letters only lower body tag from seveal of the GMAD plants like Leeds (KC) and Baltimore. No one has any idea what they mean, some think SS but they have been found on cars that were not SS optioned. It likely has something to do with in plant building of the car since the GMAD plants were charged with built other GM models on same platforms (Chevelle, Tempest, Skylard etc).

The 2nd pic is an aftermerket add on used in stopping wheel hop and inprove traction. They are called ( no-hop ) bars. Edelbrock sell them.

Did some company make these aftermarket back in the 70's? The reason I asked is this car was in storage for 22 years and nothing has been altered since it came out of hibernation.
