The cowl tag does show a Canadian only paint colour of Verde Green, nice colour and Canadian only to boot.
Sodbuster you have a problem here the VIN number is for around December of '66 but the cowl tag is for the end of March '67. So one of these has been changed. Have to check my database at home ('67 Chevelle production line to be exact) to be sure but the two tags can't be on the same car from the factory.
A few quick questions
What colour is the firewall and trunk of this car?
Does it have/had a vinyl top at one time?
My guess is the VIN number has been attached to another Canadian Chevelle body, it could be Cowl tag has been swapped but that seems a bit much.
