Trim Tag

Looks to me as if the Trim Tag was removed and then replaced, hopefully it's the one that belongs to the car. Those rivets are not originals. Seems to code correctly as an SS though.

Welcome to the Team Jens!

The car style appears in the VIN as well as the year, and assembly plant code so it should be easy to verify since an SS was a model of car and not a performance package.

trim tag

I've been looking in to the decoding part, for the vin and the trim tag, and everything matches fine, but i'm a little bit left in the dark regarding to the F and 2M on the trim tag, what does these mean?

Good looking ride Jens, welcome to the site!

I was in Denmark back in '86 for a month or so with the Marines. Very friendly and hospitable bunch, beautiful part of the country we were in there too.
