1970 Camaro Trim Tag Identification and Decoding

In 1970 Chevrolet made a couple of changes to the trim tag in both location and information that was included on the Camaro trim tag. First and foremost the tag was moved from its 1969 location on the firewall to the upper cowl area under the hood on the drivers side behind the hood hinge as indicated in the image below.

The trim tag itself also changed slightly from its 1969 counterpart. Whereas the 1969 trim tag had an X Code the 1970 Norwood built Camaro trim tags now for certain options used the RPO (Regular Production Order) code instead so for example a Camaro equipped with the SS 396 L78 375hp engine would have L78 clearly marked on the trim tag. The Los Angeles built cars would still not receive identification of individual RPO codes but instead would carry two internal codes that were 6 digits long each.

When it comes to decoding 1970 Camaro trim tags it is pretty straight forward like the 1969 tags. In the case of the RPO codes that were added to the tags for 1970 some codes in particular the RPO Z27 SS 350 code is hit or miss with more misses than anything else in 1970. On the Los Angeles trim tags like earlier years the two sets of six digit codes are internal plant codes. We have several pretty well founded theories on exact usage and decoding of these codes but at this time it is not supported by enough evidence to post here. In the future once more research has been done we will add this information to the decoding section here.

Listed below is information that will help you understand more about your trim tags option codes and what they mean. For more information on the RPO's listed here or for a complete list of all available RPO's for 1970 please visit the RPO/Pricing section under the production tab.
