Correct posi-traction tag for 1970 Chevelle

Is the red, triangular shape "Positraction lubrication" tag on a 1970 Chevelle metal or plastic? Most of the reproduction tags available don't say what they're made of and those that do say they're plastic. Is that correct? Thanks!

Mark,
The tag is indeed plastic, but 70's have Limited Slip wording, 69's say Positraction so be aware of that as both styles are reproduced. They are made from the same red plastic blank.

Thanks, Chris, I wasn't aware of the different wording. I'll look for the correct one.

I removed this from a CKK coded 1970 rearend years ago, that I had traded for. Wish I had kept the rear as well as the tag!

The tags I've seen don't read correctly

Ray,
That's the 69 version. Both styles are available, you will probably have to look for it as it appears Ground Up only carries the one style. Be aware that Corvette tags look similar but the bolt hole is much larger to accomodate the larger drain plug used on Corvettes so a Corvette vendor is probably not the place to buy one from.
