1966 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Kansas City, MO. (KAN)

1966 Trim Tag Codes

[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

It is known that in 1966 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.

More 1966 Chevelle trim tag information can be found on my 1966/1967 Chevelle Reference CD.

Another example of an L6 Chevelle from Kansas City where the VIN series does not match the style number on the trim tag. Also note the dealer stamping of 11 5 on the VIN plate indicating November 1965. This could be the month the car was sold or simply serviced, there was no standard as to how, or even if, this was done from dealer to dealer.

* There is great speculation about what the "Q" code meant 1966 & 1967. I have data on at least 19 1966 & 1967 trim tags from Atlanta, Flint, and Kansas City with this code where no other transmission code is shown.

It's found on bucket seat cars, bench seat cars, SS396 series, Malibu series, and even one base 13480 El Camino so it's not unique to a seat type or series. The question is why would Fisher Body put a "Q" on a trim tag for an M21 when, as far as Fisher Body was concerned, a 4-speed should be a 4-speed as far as any floor pan modifications would be concerned?

The "Q" is used along side of the more typical "L" which is generally accepted to be a 4-speed (be it M20, M21, or M22) and, of course, there are "L" coded trim tags in the same time frames as "Q" coded ones found. It's found on bucket seat cars, bench seat cars, SS396 series, Malibu series, and even one base 13480 El Camino so it's not unique to a seat type or series. It's found in the same body build time frames as "L" coded tags so it's not an early vs. late thing either.
