X33 Cowl Tag Doesn't Look Right??
« on: June 20, 2011, 01:39:19 AM »
As always, without getting into WHAT is wrong with this tag..... I just wanna know if it's real. Cause it sure doesn't look correct to me. But heck, what do I know.....Danny

I'm no expert, but I seem to agree with you on this one...I don't recall a Trim 727 code for  X33 other than the 711 and 712...Here is a cowl tag number from another post that I searched before I responded..

02D = Built the Fourth week of February.
69-12437 = Coupe.
NOR = Built in Norwood Ohio.
727 = Standard Ivory/Black Bucket Seats.
50-B = Lower Color is Dover White and the Vinyl Top Color is Black.
X11 = non-SS396, non-Z28, with style trim

There was no trim restriction on Z/28s; any interior could be ordered.

The tag is real. However in the previous ebay ad for this car the VIN was listed. VINs were assigned in numerical order which also establishes when a car was built. The VIN for this car is early March '69; the body tag has an 01C date. One of the tags is not original to this car.

I knew it...  and this explains the asking price and why the owner would not disclose the VIN...

An old cheap trick song comes to mind... Walk away....  ohoh oh..... walk away.....    ;D

All the stamp imprints do look a bit sharp and unworn, most tags I see have varying levels of wear on the stampings. The fonts look good otherwise.

That's what I was saying. It just doesn't look right. There is one number, and I am sure you know which one I mean. It looks wrong. But anyway, always nice to get info and opinions...... Danny
