Question Here's my Soft Trim Brodcast Sheet - Crack the Codes??

Found this in the pass. side bucket seat of my el Camino.



Amazed to find hand written info on the tag, but it is pretty cool...



The 8457 does match my VIN, so that's nice



Here's the Cowl Tag. - a fairly early build in Fremont.




What are the 3-letter codes? in the numbered blocks?
The Option blocks seem to be similar to the "Group 1 thru 5" Fisher Body Cowl Tags
The M in transmission follows that style since it was Originally a column shift TH 350
TIA,

Dan

Re: Here's my Soft Trim Brodcast Sheet - Crack the Codes??

Well further research reveals the "Options" codes:
Box A 51 = Bucket Seats
Box A 82 = Headrests
Box D 33 = Remote Mirror
Box U F1 = Map light

Just got a "Cars & Parts Catalog of Chevelle, Malibu & El Camino ID numbers 1964-1987" in the mail today along with a couple of other Chevelle related books that I won on eBay for $1 - I found the reference to the RPO numbers but had to do a bit more work to get the full story.
Now, what about those numbered boxes??
I'm guessing the BK part of the codes may be Black, since that is the original interior color.
Anyone know more??

Dan

I hope craig66 doesn't mind me referencing his post in this thread - https://www.chevelles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=245953

His data is from a 66 Fremont trim sheet but may well closely parrot a 69 trim sheet.

Maybe I'm being redundant here, but what you have is a hand written note copied from the build manifest sheet. The first two numbers from each line (i.e. 78 in 78 - AGAL) represent the manifest cell number and the AGAL represents the part that the assembler picked from a bin or rack to install on the car. In my example case, cell 78 pertains to the seat adjuster. Cells 79 - 82 are for seat pads and cells 83 and 84 are for carpets. The note was probably written by line personel trying to get ahead of the build by pulling parts in anticipation of the car's arrival on the line. It's a great piece of documentation. Congrats !
