El Camino Posi Decal

I know sedans equipped with positraction had a sticker applied to the trunk lid with instructions. Did elco's get a similar sticker, and if so where would it have been applied.

Re: El Camino Posi Decal

What year? Some of the years I'm familiar with had tags on the differential, not aware of any decals.

Re: El Camino Posi Decal

I've heard of them reported in various locations on the back bulkhead from the various plants. This one was near the spare tire. You can just make out what is left of it.
Also seen the posi tag on the drain plug like Greg mentioned. https://www.opgi.com/el-camino/J5381...BoCcTMQAvD_BwE
1969 and earlier Positraction labels are worded "USE POSITRACTION DIFF. LUBRICANT ONLY."
1970 and later Positraction labels are worded "USE LIMITED SLIP DIFF. LUBRICANT ONLY."

I had a 1971 El Camino that came with a Posi and bucket seats, the label was much closer to the center of the bulkhead, as if the worker who installed it reached between the seats. Easy for him though not aesthetically pleasing.

Re: El Camino Posi Decal

My 1970 one owner SS 454 had the posi. sticker located just to the right of center on the bulkhead, It was also kinda " Cockeyed ". Mine is a bench, SOOOooo, I guessed someone reached in with the drivers side bench set in the forward position, And just slapped it onto the bulkhead.
