Looking at purchasing a 72 SS and have no idea what the codes stand for on trim tag. I hope someone could help me out to see if this car is worth purchasing.
Line1: ST72 13637 B495139BDY
Line2: TR 732A51 56 B PNT
Line3: 12A B D 0112
Someone please help me!!
Looks like a great color combination..
1972 Malibu sport coupe (72 13637)
Baltimore (B) assembly plant
495139 Fisher Body number - nothing to do with VIN
56 B - Cream Yellow lower (56), black vinyl top (B)
732 A51 - Covert tan (732) bucket seats (A15)
12 A - December, 1st week body date
B D - unknown for certain
0112 - data processing number used during assemlby found in block 24 of the build sheet
As noted, the VIN will show what engine it originally came with. Fifth character:
D - 250 L6
F - 307 V8
H - 350-2 V8
J - 350-4 V8
U - 402 V8
W - 454 V8
Be aware that 70-72s are fairly easy to clone, may just add SS badging. Unless the engine code is a W in a 72, no real way to know without a build sheet, window sticker, or some paperwork showing Z15 option AND the car's VIN.
Any photos of the car and/or the interior? I don't have any 56 B combos in my photo gallery - http://chevellestuff.net/1972/chevel...lery/index.htm
nor any photos of the 736 interior like others I have on http://chevellestuff.net/1972/interiors/int_720743.htm
. Love to add them though.
