Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

I already have my thoughts so we'll see what others may think. Might note the 913 is correct and in the location of the body assembly date.

I beg to differ on a couple of these:
The letter "L" is a 4-speed but only the M20; M21 and M22 weren't available in 1964 and all plants that used these group codes used "L" for a 4-speed, not just KC.

I believe the letter "P" is the Comfort & Convenience Group (RPO Z01) and, on a Malibu/Malibu SS, consisted of Inside Mirror, Standard Outside Mirror, 2-Speed Wiper and Washer, Back-Up Lights, Glove Box Lamp, & Bottle W/S Washer Fluid. Although radios were always an option only the stereo tape in 1967, and possibly the stereo multiplex units in 1965, were ever coded in the option groups.

5867 is the Fisher Body style number, 57 is the Fisher body number.

If there's documentation that shows something different, I'd be intereted to discover otherwise.

Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

I agree with Dale. Just a quick note that the M21 was available in 64 on fullsize cars. 1,945 cars were ordered with it.

Re: 64 SS code info

What Rod said, although I can help a little.

913, maybe the paint code, could possibly be the build date, such as 01B which would be the second week of Jan as the build date.

5867, V8 convertible. unless the VIN has the 58 in it after a 4, it could still be a six cylinder, yes, they came with six cylinder SS's back then.

When you post in the Tag Team forum, post the VIN too.

The Fisher Body style number doesn't indicate a V8 or L6; Fisher Body style number 5867 only indicates a Malibu SS convertible.

As noted, the VIN is the only way to determine a V8 or L6.

Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

Hmmm. This very same trim tag was not attached to a car when photographed and provided for Dale's excellent website ... So is the tag now attached to a car?? If so, the bigger question is, is it attached to the car it originally came on, or is it on another car now ?? Inquiring minds want to know!

Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

Good God. i have had the entire world concerning auto vin numbers etc envolved in verifing this car. I can not at this time remember exactly the name or initials of the agency that along with the Arkansas Hiway Patrol checked this vehicle over for originality and was found to be a true SS that matched the title and all numbers found on the frame also matched. I have the varification from the State police and the NICB or something close to this which also varifies that this car is a true early 64 Chevelle convertible with all numbers matching. This took some time and expense but it is for sure as stated. I had rather not argue about what I have as it is varified a true early SS. I need genuine honest help with figuring this car out. Thanks Jerry

Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

And that is exactly what we are trying to do. Post the VIN to help us.

Re: early 64 SS cowl tag information

Again, This is the original tag. I took it off and put it in my bank lock box to be sure it stays genuine. It is well documented. Christ, why are they so many doubters?

Ok, I remember this car now. Looked back at your prior posts and found this:

https://www.chevelles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=322025

And you wonder why there are "doubters"?!?!? Well for starters:

(1) you removed the cowl tag from the car

(2) you say in the other thread that the car didn't have a vin tag when you got it

(3) you say in the other thread that you now have a new reproduction / replacement VIN tag that you had MADE for you by your state DMV -- not the original GM VIN tag; and

(4) you say in the other thread that it was necessary for you to get the police, NICB, DMV and state authorities involved just to figure out whether your car's VIN matched the title you received -- yet it is an incontrovertable fact (as was established in the other thread) that if you didn't have the original vin tag with the full vin # then neither you nor any government agent or police officer were going to find the full VIN # of the car anywhere else on the car.

And therefore you cannot, ever, under any circumstances, prove that the car you own was born with the SS vin # that you have on your title and on your reproduction / replacement VIN tag. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't. But the point is it can't be proven either way now.

If you think I'm being tough on you, I apologize, but I bet if a poll were run on TC the vast majority of people would agree that your car's missing, removed, replaced, reproduced and/or otherwise tampered with tags are far more troubling than you seem to think they are.

Best of luck to you though!
