Did only the Los built 67 trunk lid get a plated latch plate as shown on the red lid?

My 67 05B NOR (as well as the 04B LOS) has a plated latch.

I believe painted latches started with 68.  All 7s should be plated to the best of my memory.

Darrell, can you clarify exactly what details/areas of the trunk lid you need for your spreadsheet?

OK. 04A Van Nuys build (NCRS shipper doc has production date of April 1, 1969), original paint under trunk lid. Sheetmetal date stamp T A 12. Photos tell the story. Interesting to note the original emblem holes in the lid where the spoiler sits, car is definitely a D80 and has one torsion rod thicker than the other.

Driver's side of trunk lid:


Passenger's side of trunk lid:


Lip detail (no tabs):


Emblem mounting and original (non-spoiler) emblem piercing:


Sheetmetal date code:


Front (leading edge) of spoiler mounting nut:


Rear (trailing edge) of spoiler mounting nut:

NOTE: spoiler is currently off the trunk lid during restoration, and was briefly removed in 1971 for the car to have it's drag-racing paint job applied, so no way to know if these nuts are original. However they do still have traces of dum-dum sealant around them.
Mike's (rszmjt's) picture shows captured washer on the nuts on his car.

Looks like someone made a mistake on the line...  The lower emblem holes do not show signs of nuts ever being on the paint..  First D80 car I have seen with the lower emblem holes punched..  Very cool..

Really? I guess I just assumed that all trunk lids were pierced at the time of manufacture ready for the standard (non-D80) emblem location, and additional holes were punched at the factory if the car had D80..... well that's something else I've learned!

Found the following thread which may explain the 2 sets of emblem holes:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3752.0
I haven't read right through it yet, but that is probably where I got the idea that (at least some) deck lids came pre-pierced in the std emblem location.
