1965 Trim Tag Codes

It is unknown if in 1965 Kansas City coded all trim tag style numbers with an even 3rd digit so the Fisher Body Style number is not a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6.

* The letter "P" in group 4 is unknown. This letter appears on Framingham tags throughout the year. This same group 4 "P" code is also found on KC-built Chevelles in group 4 and possibly only in very early builds as well as Euclid-built El Caminos for Kansas City. Anyone with information on the option code meaning in group 4, please contact me via the Contact tab.
