Hi Guys can somone decode this trim tag for me.
13867 2-11-21
Body No. OS
Paint 9 DD
Trim 736
A-51m20TOP-10
I think the car was orginal 6 banger but now is 396/375/4spd. It also has the Concours trim over the glove box which i don't think is right. If i'm correct wasn't the wagon Concours. Also this is a Conv and built in Canada Ohsawa Ontario. Can anybody help Thanks Dirkey

Re: Trim Tag

Are you sure about those numbers??? Please post a pic of the cowl tag and vin tag.

From what you gave I came up with

13867= 67 SS Convertible
2-11-21= 2 is unknown 11-21 is build date of Nov 21st
244640= Fisher body unit number
OS= Oshawa Plant
9DD= Enamel Paint Nantucket Blue
763= Black Imitation Leather Buckets
A51= Strato Buckets
M20= 4 spd manual
TOP-10= i'm not sure but may designate power or manual top or top color.

Once again....Are you sure about this??

Re: Trim Tag

Since it is a Canadian built car, you can call George Zapora of General Motors of Canada at 1-888-467-6853 or 1-905-644-5843. For a small fee, I think $45 US, you can get documentation for your car. It will tell what engine the car came with and all options the car had from the factory. The paperwork will also tell you what dealership your car was delivered to. I have the paperwork from them for my car. It is well worth the fee.

Re: Trim Tag

Thanks for the info on the cowl tag. I just went out and checked the No. again along with the Vin plate and ownership ,everthing is correct. When i bought the car 2 weeks ago the owner told me it was o 6 cly. car before but he bought it from his nephew 5 years ago and wasn't sure. It even says 6 on the ownership card. But this can be changed at the ministry office. In Canada we can send the Vin No. and tag right to GM in Ohsawa Canada and they will send me all the info from the day it was built,engine no. trans no.even where it was shipped. It use to be free but now they charge 40.00. I did a 70 SS 396 i had a couple years ago and everthing matched.I'm going to do this one tomorrow. The body and paint are already done just needs to be put back togehter. Thanks again and i will let you guys know when i get the info back from Gm
