Vinyl Top Code
« on: July 31, 2019, 04:25:16 AM »
If a 69 Camaro came with a black vinyl top, it would be listed on the window sticker as 5C08BJ Vinyl Top Cover/Black. Does anyone know what the code would have been it the top were white?

Jerry MacNeish's 'definitive' book has many examples of original documentation; I'll dig my copy out in the next day or two and see if there's one that shows that code. Of course, unless somebody already has that info and posts sooner!

Just found my copy of JM's book; no documentation that I could find, for a car with parchment vinyl top - just several with black tops. Realised that may be the source of the code for black v-top that you quoted in the original question.....

The proper ECL for many options, including C08, is dependent on other options.
Learning more and more about less and less...

As William stated, there is more than 1 ECL code for C08 with Parchment top, depends on family of options.
