1970 SS Cowl Tag Help

Hey guys, I LOVE this site. I think some of you need medical help for the amount of knowledge about these awsome cars. I need help decoding this cowl tag. Also this car has a steering wheel with Chevrolet written in script. Was this wheel an option?

Re: 1970 SS Cowl Tag Help

Is there a webpage listing the various codes for a 70's Cowl Tag?

Thanks,

Thanks,
My Chevellestuff site has samples of almost every year and plant for Chevelle tags with explanations of what the paint/trim/date/etc. codes are. Most information is common between plants but there are differences. Examples of 1970 tags in particular can be found here. Also of note, some plant body numbers in 1970 appear to be in sequence while other plants (like KC) have 'body numbers' that vary a great deal and can't possibly be sequenced. Example, all these are KC 13637 Chevelles:
10B ~ 077288
12C ~ 508765
01A ~ 492460
01D ~ 690621
05D ~ 056383

I also have build sheets, POPs, and tons of other decoding information for 64-72 Chevelles on the site.
