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
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.
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!
please decode as you did with the strip detail
