Appears to have been built in '68 at the Arlington TX plant.
The number "7R127238
" in 67 L-35's
first post is the Partial VIN derivitive stamped on the front pad along with an engine assembly date code or suffix mark. This should not be confused with the body codes, like the 12437/67 for Camaros, and other numbers you are refering to.
has stated, it was from the Arlington, Tx. Final Assembly Plant.
Arlington, Tx only assembled Full Size Passenger vehicles that year, so safe bet it's from a full size.
The Partial VIN decodes as:
7 = 1967, model year - engine/car could have been assembled in 1966, suffix would give engine date.
R = Arlington, Tx final assembly plant
127238 = VIN sequence number from GM - started at 100001 for full size in Sept. 1966 for the 1967 model year. So this was the 27,238th unit built for that sequence that model year.
