67 Impala cowl tag

Greetings from Finland. Just purchased a -67 with 283 + powerglide. Here is the tag info;
67-16487 STL011529
814-A K-K
161128

What is that on the option line? No codes, just those numbers?

Welcomed to the Team Niilo!

That I do not know. The STL indicates to me that it was made in St Louis, MO USA and imported some time in the past.

But that could be just as easily have been made in Saint-Lô, France for all I know; if it was made in Europe. I do know that they made full size cars in Brussels, Belgium in the sixties.

Usually the option codes are a number ranging from the number 1-5. Inside of a group number there were letter codes from A-Z that indicated a specific option. I do not know what or why certain options were picked to be encoded, because we also know that not every option bolted to the car was listed on the trim tag.

If you are luckily you might find a copy of the build sheet stuffed somewhere in the car. Every option generated a build sheet, and was installed by an assembly line worker who was supposed to throw that sheet in the trash when finished installing the part. But some workers where lazy and hid them in the car rather than walk to the trash bin.

Those numbers look like the Fisher Body company sequence number (it listed sequentially the order in which the body was built for use on the assembly line kind of like an internal company VIN that no one ever wrote down).

Thanks for the help Big Dave.
I think it means St. Louis, MO as I just bought it from MO and it arrived here just last month.

The car interior is pretty much out and haven't seen any paperwork hidden (like on my -71 Covette, the paper was under the dash).
So the numbers have nothing to do with options?

Trim tag

Always better to post pics of trim tags, makes it easire to decode. Based on where the characters appear, they mean different things:

67-16487 1967 Impala 2 Dr Spt Cpe
011529 is the 11,529 2 dr spt cpe produded in St. Louis
814-A Black interior A Bench seat
Now I guessing the K-K is over to the right of this line which
would be the paint code K-K Upper and lower body: Artesian Turquoise
161128 again assuming this is on the bottom line, this would be the sequence or job number which would also appear on the top right of the window sticker.

That lines right up. By the way, some plants out the 2M powerglide code on the tag and others didn't. Your car wouldn't have needed the code since to modification was needed for automatic on the column
