Decoding Caracas Venezuela Cowl Tag
« on: June 22, 2018, 12:52:52 PM »
Help, I found a 69 Camaro that I'm thinking about buying and I am having trouble decoding the cowl tag. I have found some info on it, it has what I believe is called a mirror cowl tag. The vin # is 12437KC100xxx. It may be fairly rare from what I learned the K code was actually a 1970 code, but was used on some very late 1969 Camaros. The rest of the codes are: TR 718 BDY and PNT are 926-50521. Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, it has front disc brakes and a 12 bolt rear. Thanks.

Not sure why you wouldn't include the complete VIN. I presume this is 12437KC100126?

As an aside, I just saw a tag for a 70 Caracas Camaro - correctly using the K date. :)

To Kurt S. I really didn't think that it was necessary to list the entire vin#, but out of all the possible combinations of vin numbers, how did you guess the last 3 digits as 126? Do you know this car? I found out that the 718 interior code is med red, but I still haven't found out what the 926-50521 is. Any help? Thanks

I know a little about the car, from about 10 years ago. Had/has it's original engine. Be real curious if you ever get the axle code.
I don't know what color that paint code is, sorry.

Kurt S - It has no engine or trans now. I'll try to see if I can get the rear code for you. So what do you know about the car from 10 years ago, I would be very curious to know? Did you own it, work on it or know the owner? Any thoughts on where I could find out about the paint code? I believe it's a Dupont paint code. Would GM have records of it? Thanks, Jim
