While cleaning my recent purchase, I found the tag still around the coil spring.
It was really  nice. I was wondering, should I take it off and put it in a scrapebook?

How does it compare to repro stickers? Can you post a pic?
thanks

I notice many restorations have the coil spring tags right there where everybody can see them. On my last '69 Z they were on the ends of the springs, out of sight inside the frame. I have never seen a coil spring tag in a vintage chassis photo.

That's how it is on my original 67...the tag is just up inside the chassis and out of sight unless you look up into that cavity.

On unrestored cars I have found that for the most part the spring tags are visible. They may be dirty, deteriorate or have only a portion remaining.  To Williams point, I'm sure most restorers install the tag after the spring is installed and place the tags where the spring coils are accessible and easy to reach.

I found my original tags toward the tops of the springs as well.

It makes sense that the tags were on the springs before installation, which is how the line identified them. And whomever was responsible for installing the tags put them on the top ring. Why reach down further than needed?

Mine were on the bottom.  Well, the one I found anyway.  I thought it was a piece of junk caught in all the grease and dirt.
