Re: 69 cowl tag question
5757=Fathom Green exterior with no vinyl top. 795=Midnight Green vinyl bench seat interior. 07C=3rd week in July, 1969 (same as mine). '69 model year production at Baltimore went into either the 4th or 5th week of July, 1969 (I could look it up if necessary). Mine also has a crudely stamped 8 in the tag that looks like it was stamped after the cowl tag was installed. I have no idea what it means. The L in the bottom row is thought by some to be an SS indicator on Baltimore '69's. Some things to look for on an SS L78 are a single 3/8" fuel line but on many cars the return line of L34 and L35 cars has been removed over the years, so look at mounting brackets along frame (single or dual line) and the tank pickup/sending unit (single or dual line). If it has the tach/gauge option, a 6000 rpm redline (if original) is L78. But even if these indictors are present, without a build sheet or other documentation they're (the indicators) not worth much.
