That is a tag like no other I have seen. Generally a Canadian trim tag says the car was made in Canada right on the tag. I can not even hazard a guess based on US trim tags because the only number I can find tells me you have a foor door sedan full size passenger car. None of the other numbers turn up in my books.

That's why I'm trying to decode it. More or less the usual GM information is all there. What intrigues me is the ones I can't decode. I know already the SS is the body painting Sierra Fawn, but what the meaning of 9 following the PAINT word? And about the TRIM 888? Any idea?

The 888 is the interior color and seating style and the material they cover the seats with. So on an SS it would indicate bucket seats covered in vinyl or cloth with an indication of the color but I can not find that number.

The 9 I have no idea. Generally a number after the paint code indicates a vinyl top color or the fabric color of a convertible. But the highest number I have seen is a 5 for five different top colors (black, white, light blue, light green, and dark brown).

I have books that decode Protect-O-Plate codes (the warranty book), trim tag codes for both American and Canadian built cars and even some information on the build sheet codes but I have not seen a tag like that before.

I would look at the casting numbers, date codes, and identification numbers to verify where and when the motor, tranny, and the rear end where made. I suspect your car was made in Europe; possibly in Antwerp.

Some time ago, I got an official document that states the car has been imported from GM Canada to GM Portugal in 1967. After about 1 or 2 months the car was sold by the representative of the brand to the first owner. So far, I believe that the vehicle was manufactured in Canada. Anyway, I will check with the Vintage Vehicles Services of GM Canada to obtain information as accurately as possible.

Anyway, thank you for all your efforts Big Dave!

It's fantastic, Paul! You must have the Bible of the cowl tags with you! However, my searches returns 888 being Sierra Fawn. Is it the same as Sierra Tan? By the way, what is your opinion about the cowl tag itself? It should say GM Canada? And looking at the picture, what is your opinion of the actual color, since it was repainted a few years ago?

Thank you very much for your help!

Greetings from Portugal!

Does your VIN tag have a GM of Canada indications?

Hi, Paul. Yes, it does. It's painted over it, but still legible. I don't have a picture but I recall GM Canada D.D. and the VIN Nr; there is a very similar here (5th tag counting from the top): http://chevellestuff.net/1967/chevelle/tags/67-os.htm

I think we are pretty sure the car was built in Canada and exported. I would try to secure all the information from that Canadian site and see what turns up.

That's exactly what I'm thinking to do, since everything points to that this car is Canadian.

Thanks all!
