Re: 67 canadian decoding help

Hmm, the body tag indicates that the body was completed May 23. It also appears that it has A51, but no D55. Early in the run (up to about the 3rd week of November we are finding) A51 without D55 still meant the car came with a console AND Malibu SS badging & trim even with the six; after that if a console was desired it was a separately priced option and D55 would appear on the trim tag. Does your car have a console now? Is there evidence of having a column shifted Powerglide in the past?


FYI in Canada D99 is the RPO for 2-tone moldings; they were $9.25 by themselves or $19.05 total for 2-tone paint which included the moldings (the paint code showed whether it was 2-tone paint or not).

I'll have to revise my data on that. Just so I understand, D99 didn't mean two-tone paint, it only meant the moldings themselves? So someone could order the molding on a single paint colored car? Was the D99 also shown on vinyl top cars since those required the molding as well? Could a two-tone paint combination be ordered without the moldings?

{Edit}Two other questions -
1. Would the same be true for the 66 Malibu sport coupes as far as the molding being the D99 option?

2. Does the same D99 apply to 4-door models as well with either two-tone paint or vinyl top?

Re: 67 canadian decoding help

If it has a column shift it definately didn't have a console. Is the Powerglide shift pattern on the dash cluster face and does it have a clock in the cluster?

Re: 67 canadian decoding help

yea the power glide pattern is on the dash and the clock is in the cluster. i still have the powerglide(not in the car) but the six was takin out in the 90s and is long gone. not that its much but would have been kinda cool to have it all.

Re: 67 canadian decoding help

The shift pattern and clock are a sure indication it didn't have a console - unless someone also replaced the entire cluster somewhere along the way. If it did have a console at one time, there'd be a hole in the transmission hump (could be filled but it'd be apparent from underneath) and there'd be evidence of mounting brackets that could have been cut off as well. I'd guess it didn't come with a console for some reason, though.

Re: 67 canadian decoding help

All the evidence follows that the car was built later in the run and was not a Malibu SS; rather it was a bucket seat Malibu w/o a console.


Dale, in the U.S. D99 meant 2-tone paint. In Canada D99 meant 2-tone moldings, the paint code code would determine whether 2-tone paint was actually specified.
It's true that the D99 moldings were included with the C08 vinyl roof but D99 never appeared on the tag or window sticker; the vinyl roof would not be installed without them. As for a car with 2-tone paint without the moldings, that is an interesting question. Perhaps a fleet order or COPO order with a special paint job might have been made without the moldings but I have never seen or heard of any such instance.

If it is a Canadian-built Chevelle then the trim tag will have option codes on the trim tag. Mind you, not all option codes are listed, just the ones that were needed to give Fisher Body a heads up for any body modifications at their end. You won't see a code for an optional six, but you would for a 396 big block, or an M35 or M20 trandmission. You won't see an option code for an optional AM radio or H.D. suspension, but you would find one for bucket seats (A51) & console (D55), or the Malibu SS option (A51, includes console but D55 wasn't listed; depends when in the year it was built). I've also seen a surprising number of cars with the D99 2-tone moldings that were never 2-tone. It seemed to be a Canadian thing.

Another thing, on a Canadian-built '67, RA is definitely Bolero Red with a Tuxedo Black painted roof. If it were a factory black vinyl roof car the paint code would be RR and would also say TOP 27 (for black)
Actually, I think RR would mean Bolero Red for both upper/lower.

Re: 67 canadian decoding help

While I don't have an Oshawa-built 67 with a vinyl top tag I do have three convertible tags and the paint codes are shown as 2 letters of the lower color, LL in one case, DD in another and YY in another. The last line with RPO codes shows the convertible top color; TOP02 on one, TP2 on another, and TP02 on a third one.

I would imagine any vinyl topped Chevelle would follow the same schema but maybe not.

X2 on that Dale. FYI, on Canadian Chevelles & Beaumonts with a C08 vinyl top, black = TP27, beige (off white) = TP29.

Convertible tops colours are black = TP02, white = TP10, blue = TP12
