Are you sure it doesn't have the tabs?  I swear I think I can see an outline of one or two of them.  Also TA's were produced or went into production around Feb or March of 69.  So when would we see the transition of the lids?  


Lets see some Dec 68 or Jan & Feb 69 cars with original lids.

 Here are two pictures on my '67's from 04B (original paint) and 05B (in primer).
 Hope it helps sort out when changes in the stampings approximately occurred

Mike.

Here's my original/untouched 02D 69Z with factory D80; it was shipped on February 28, 1969.  Smiley

John,

 I see the trunk lid striker plate is painted. I guess in '69, or sometime before, the process was changed to install it (and adjust likely) prior to paint?
My '67 is not painted.

Interesting to see the tabs & TA tabs.  The change from the tabs to no tabs with the tabs must have happened at a later date than I first thought.

67 was the only year that was plated.  68 & 9 were painted.

John thanks for the spoiler acorn nut picture, that is one of the points I lost at the Nationals. The reproduction nuts are too short. George

Great thread guys! So am I correct in assuming that 67, 68, and early 69 lids are supposed have the tabs?

All 67 & 68 had/have tabs but not all 69's have/had tabs. There was a change to no tabs just no sure when just yet. That's why I'd like to see more original lids.  My 07-69 & 11-69 do not have tabs but do have the TA holes.

Guys beside keeping track of the tabs we may also want to note the oval hole stamped in the lower center of the lid. I have not seen that on most original lids, but have seen that on most NOS lids. It may be related to the stamping plant. This NOS lid was stamped out at the "T" stamping plant. Noted by the upper arrow in this picture. Another piece to the puzzle. George

Darrell or George was the studs for the early 69 spoiler (Short one) and the later spoiler (longer one) in the same place on the lid?
