this found on 64 Impala hood

Greetings,

New here 10 minutes ago. Oldschool Chevy guy, serious gearhead, just no Impala. Ariel in my autobody class has a 64 Impala. They are stripping it for an eventual paint job. They showed me this strip with car info on it. Never saw this on a Camaro or Chevelle... Is this common?

I see the engine build date followed by an S but am unfamiliar with the S suffix. My stuff for 1964 shows several Sx combos, just not a single X.
I presume 327 though. Any info appreciated, looks like what would be on a Protecto Plate, never on the side of the hood



and the car

Take a pic of the trim tag on the firewall so we can see what matches up.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

George,
That is very interesting. Is this a metal strip that is stamped with this information or one of those plastic stamped strips? How is it atached?

F0325S is correct for a 327/250hp with a powerglide behind it, Filint built on March 25th (1964)

AB501 Rear end is 3.36:1 open rear end build at Detroit Gear May 1st.

T0424N is a Powerglide tranny built at the Toledo plant on April 24th (on the Night shift)

Never seen one of those strips. Im guessing it is a dealer or owner installed item. I'll pass this link along to a few people in the know.

What is the build date of the car? These items seem farily spaced apart, would be intersting when it was acually assembled (May I'm assuming)

That looks like a plastic strip made on one of those Dyno Label makers. My guess is that a previous owner deciphered the codes and put it on a label to remember it. I bet it peels off. He probably took the codes off the rear end and transmission and put them there for easier reference.

re this


looks like the GM plastic found over POP over a thin metal tag. On Monday we'll look at this again. could possibly be label-maker tape coming undone but does not look as such to the eye. Top layer, mostly clear is coming off. No screws or rivet...may well be tape but it does not look so. If so, DAMN good idea to put it where handy!

trim tag
please decode as you did with the strip detail




Waiting for Ariel to start a thread in Body Shop of Build Section

That strip sure is interesting. It could have been done by the dealer for quick reference if the car was being serviced. What is the vin?
