1967 Impala SS trim tag

Hi All.
I have not been about to fully decode my trim tag on my 1967 Impala SS:
12B D
ST 67-16867 STL 000181 BODY
TR 870-D C-1 PAINT
W
5Y 118913

Any help in determining what these mean would be appreciated.
BTW, the car has 327/TH400/12 bolt and Column-shift.
Thanks.

Decode

Was there any additional info needed from this Chevy Talk post:


1 is for Chevrolet Division
68 is a Impala SS
67 is a convertible
7 is for 1967
S is code for St Louis final assembly
137005 is the sequence number, they started at 100001 and went up. Making this the 37,005 car made in St Loius this model year. Note-Cars did not come of the line in 1000001,2,3,4,5,6.7, etc sequence though

Cowl Tag:
12B D
ST 67-16867 STL 000181 BODY
TR 870-D C-1 PAINT
W 5Y 118913

12B is the month and week built 12 is Dec, B is for second week
D is a misc Fisher Body Code thats not documented
67-16867 is described above in VIN
STL is code for St Loius Fisher Body
870-D is the interior trim code for Red vinyl bucket seat. D, u sure its not a B. B is Fisher code for bucket seat
C-1 is the lower and upper paint color combination, A letter is paint c=Ermine White, a number is for vinyl or convertible top color A=Black

W 5Y are Fisher Body option codes, they are in groups of 1 to 5 with the 1 never used. So
Gr.1
W - A02 Tinted windshield only

Gr. 2,3,4
No options present

Gr. 5
Y - A49 Deluxe seat belts

118913 is a plant processing number with no relation to equipment on the car. It was put on the tag to keep track of the body so it could be matched up with the chassis when it got to the assembly line from the Fisher Body side of the plant.

Denis, what's the handstamped number on the tag and the vin#? I'd like to add the car to my database.

Hi Paul,
Thanks. I see you pulled that answer from WAAAAY back from ChevyTalk before I even bought the car!! I'm new to this site and I forgot about that ChevyTalk inquiry. Plus, I read here in a post from 2008 or so that full-size cowl-tag decoding is in its infancy. So I figured some new things may have been discovered.

Anyways, after reading about a bunch of other cowl tags in the Tag Team section, I do have a couple of unanswered questions.
1) The car does have the Strato-Back seat and column shift. 870-D is the code. I would think that "D" is the code for the Strato-Back seat.
2) I have a TH400 transmission. I read In other cowl tag inquiries that had a code for the transmission --> "4A" or "M40" or something like that for the TH400. It appears I do not have the transmission code. Why it that?
3) What does the "000181" mean.
4) There are other options on the car, but I don't know if they would show up on the cowl tag:
T58-fender skirts (not installed)
T78-fender lights
U79-Am/FM radio
N40-power steering
N10-dual exhaust
Auxiliary lighting group (trunk, ashtray, glove, box)
K24 - Ventilation-Engine Positive

Hi Warren,
I'll take a look at the cowl tag and get back to you. Check your PMs.

Denis:
Different assembly plants listed the options differently. If you want to review some good reading, visit this Chevelle site and browse around the years for 1967 and trim tag codes and examples:
It's a wealth of information giving you ideas of variations of plants even though not for Impala:


http://chevellestuff.net/1967/index.htm
Not all options were listed on the trim tag, the only options you will see are options that involved changes with the body that needed to be made to ensure correct fit.

The 000181 means that you Impala SS was the 181st Impala SS produced at the plant.

Also look at the letter codes for interiors on the Chevelle site for more insight.
Regards,

Paul

Thanks. Got it. Cool the car came with the optional but no cost red strato bench seat interior.

Yes, I almost DIDN'T buy the car because of the seat. At the time, I preferred the Strato-Buckets/console. But I love the red interior/white exterior combo and it didn't take me long to love the the Strato-Back bench seat.

My uncle had pretty much the same car. White/black top SS convertible with the red strato bench. It was a 396 with the TH400 on the column. Cool to hear of another and that it still has the seat!

Nice!
Convertible top question: My paint code is "C1". I know "C" = Ermine White, but what color does the "1" signify for the top?

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the great information and links! Interesting reading.
Clarification: This car is a convertible. Does the "000181" mean 181st Impala SS convertible? Which I assume Impala and Impala SS convertibles are counted separately due to different series numbers.

The numeral one signifies a "White Convertible Top".

Body number

The body number corresponded sequentially to that body style:
