69 Trim Tag D80 question
« on: July 12, 2014, 10:21:38 AM »
My 11D Nor L48 (blue car for those that know) has/always had D80 since I owned the car. I have never had any reason to believe that it was not on the car since new. In other words, original D80 car. It could have been dealer added, I realize.
My question is: Would ALL D80 factory equipped cars (69) have that, D80, noted on the trim tag? Was the D80 notation added later in production or on there from begining of model year?
I am sorry, I did not do a search first if this has already been discussed.

Started appearing during mid-late production Norwood cars, IIRC. PM sent.

I know of a 69 Z that is a factory spoiler car that does not have D 80 on the trim tag.    I do not know the build date.    The guy has owned the car twice.    I showed him the difference between his spoiler car verses  my non spoiler car

I have an 11D L48 (RS/SS convertible) with factory spoilers. There are no X or option codes on my trim plate.  It is my understanding that D80 would not be on a trim tag before the second week of December, which was when the X codes first appeared.  Here is my tag.

Bentley, I wasn't clear on your original posted question/statement..   

Did you mean that your 11D car had the D80 spoiler and the D80 code on the cowl tag when you purchased it, OR that it had the spoiler only?   
The CRG info states...  under the 1969 Norwood Camaro cowl tag data section...

" Additional 1969 Norwood Fisher codes that could be combined with the X-codes include:
   D80 - signifies the car was equipped with D80 spoilers, but the code was not always used."

D80 first appeared on tags Just after the time the firebirds were added to the assembly line at Norwood.  Probably had more to do with the trans am cars than the Camaros, but the option lists used in the "computer" creating the tags probably couldn't differentiate between a spoiler option on a Camaro, and one on a Firebird so all the cars with spoilers ended up with the code on their tags.

I got an answer already. My question was: should my car have had the D80 on the tag...assuming all spoiler equipped cars had that on tag (proof of real D80). I learned that all tags did not have D80 if so equipped (early cars did not as pointed out in post answers).
