Dave, it all depends on which AIM you're looking at. 1967, 1968 and 1969 all used different part numbers. The picture James posted above is from the 1969 AIM.

Do any of the retailers make or sell reproduction Muncie Tags as shown..
Looked some and don't see any, but mine is MIA as I suspect most are and I wouldn't mind getting a 3915085 version if they are being made or reproduced.
I just assumed since they remake radiator tags, rear end posi tags, and all kinds of repro decals and such - that little metal tags would also be available - or maybe the demand just isn't there?!
Thanks - Randy

I've seen some for sale on eBay that are reproductions but the fonts are not 100%. That is only obvious if you compare it side by side to an original. I think for a show you'll be fine.

To answer the above question(s), yes, there are repros; good ones, too. The following link will get you to the retailer - their '68 tag is the wrong number, but they have all of the '69 part numbers.

You just have to know where to look. I've done some business with these guys, pretty darn good reproductions in a lot of different categories. Just click on Camaro, the year, search for trans tags -

Thanks Steve - I had looked there previously prior to posting but obviously didn't use the search option correctly, since when I went back after your reply, I found them easily the second go-around..
Too bad they don't have the proper number - is the one they show even at all legit for a '68 model?
Regardless, I can't see wasting money (and shipping up here = more $$'s and brokerage fees) for something that isn't even at all correct number-wise.. Too Bad!
I'll have to watch E-Bay as others have suggested..
Thanks again for your trouble - Randy

Randy, I thought Heartbeat was selling the repro's also but did not verify. Years ago they were still pretty easy to spot a repro but maybe they are better now.
From the Yenko website: "Lots of people contributed,but credit goes to Chuck Hanson for publishing this all in last months Chevelle World.Box #28 on the Buildsheet will reflect the 2 letter code as well."

Randy, I will check to see if I have an extra. If I do I will send you a PM.

Chick, that list was for Chevelles. Note their are no listings for Z28.  The AIMs for each year are the best source for the data.

Bryon, Thanks for your looking..  Its certainly not a life threatening deal, but it would be something that would be nice to add and again I appreciate your effort...
Chick - the list you posted and the picture of yours shows the right one I need I guess from everything I've read now and seen - again you were so very fortunate in having such an original car right from the outset!

Post #23 is a pretty good list of trans assembly part number tags, but there is an error with the 1969 M-20 part numbers is 3946797 not 3946767 as listed...

I've seen the part number tags from the parts place, IMHO you will not be happy...

Hope this helps... Crash

Thanks Crash. I agree. The repro tags are not even close.
