1969 Camaro Trim Tag Identification and Decoding

Starting with the introduction of the Camaro in 1967 Each first generation Camaro has had a special identification tag attached to the Camaros body known as a trim tag or cowl tag as some prefer to call it. The trim tag depending on the year of the Camaro can supply you as either the owner, potential buyer or just a simple enthusiast with a great deal of information about eh car you are looking at.

The first step is to locate the trim tag for your Camaro. For the first generation cars 1967, 1968 and 1969 the trim tag is located on the firewall between the wiper motor and the brake master cylinder. The image below shows you where to find the trim tag on a bare shells firewall. For those of you who are Firebird fans the trim tag for your Pontiac is located here also and shares many of the same codes.

1967 through 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Trim Tag Location

1969 saw big changes for not only the Camaro as w whole but even for the trim tag. In fact 1969 saw the trim tag change several times at both the NOR and LOS plants. These changes were both in appearance and in the information they conveyed.

The tags just like 1968 would see the same information being shown until the second week of December when the X Code was introduced to the tags at the Norwood, Ohio assembly plant. Regrettably these codes were never used at the LOS plant. The X Code would be a great boon to helping verify that a Camaro was something special when it was ordered. If the code said X66 you knew it was a big block, if it was X11 you could tell that the Camaro came at a minimum with the style trim group included.

The examples shown below will help guide you through the different trim tags used in 1969 and help you to decipher the meanings of the codes that are on them.
