Decoding/Numbers / Re: Dash Cluster Tag for 69

could the big letters indicate the 'date' that the entire cluster was assembled?

The big letters (NN) indicate the broadcast code. Although you might not be able to see it on your decal, each decal is date stamped. The picture below is what I found on my '68 cluster assembly.

What is interesting about your tag is the color. I've never seen a purple one before.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rad Tag Decode

I think IA and CF are the tank codes. So far I can't find a VL radiator application. Not likely that it's original. Might be from a Nova.

See this link.

Decoding/Numbers / Rad Tag Decode
« Last post by LVN 67 on May 23, 2016, 06:00:41 PM »
I'm helping a friend with some work on her Camaro. Its a 69 with a non original 350. Took out the radiator to be serviced and noticed it was an original one. The car has no trim tag on it, but its an early 69 N501365.
    Tag shows the following:
    IA  VL
    CF
    59           
  There are no numbers on the bottom of the tag. I'll try and get a picture posted.
   Any decode help would be appreciated.

Originality / Re: Steering Column Paint Question

Hi John,

 So based on that then it's probably black paint over-spray I see (my interior is black) on the harness nearest where it exits the upper column and is clear of paint nearest the connector on the other end.

Saginaw Steering Gear painted the column parts black primer before assembling them and shipping the completed column assembly to the car plants (they had no way of knowing what interior color the car would have that the column would end up in). At the car assembly plant, the column was painted the specified interior color in a low-temp paint system (along with the ashtray and glove box door).

Here is a photo of the label on my original instrument pod...   not sure what all the different colors and letter codes mean?   There are dates stamped on the back of each instrument; could the big letters indicate the 'date' that the entire cluster was assembled?  (although there might be a date stamped on this label as well..  that I could not read clearly)..

Decoding/Numbers / Re: LOS TB (no P) inspection tag possibility?
« Last post by JohnZ on May 23, 2016, 04:11:20 PM »
Thank you, John. I guess the next question is about paint inspection. Do you know if that was done separately first and if it passed then it went to 'B' & 'T' inspection -or- could that have been part of 'B' body.

Thanks,
Mike

Those (Fisher Body) buyoff inspections were all done in the same location, at the end of the Fisher Trim Shop, before the (firewall-back) body was shipped through the wall to Chevrolet. By the end of 1967, there was no more Fisher Body at Van Nuys - that's when GMAD (GM Assembly Division) took over the previously Fisher Body/Chevrolet operation.
