1969 Chevelle Protect-O-Plate Warranty Card (Baltimore, MD)

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

I have more examples but only list a few examples on this page. If you request help with yours, contact me and I'll be glad to answer any questions you have. Include a photo of the Protect-O-Plate as plants often deviate during the model year.

Note:  GM offers 2 explanations on decoding the VIN.  Using the common 13637 as an example:
1. When describing the VIN plate: 1 ~ Chevrolet Division, 36 ~ Malibu V8, 37 ~ 2-door sport coupe
...and...
2. When describing the POP: 13 ~ Chevelle, even number (2,4,6,8) is a V8 - odd number (1,3,5) is a L6, 37 ~ 2-door sport coupe. The engine designations of 2, 4, 6, or 8 for a V8 engine, and1, 3 or 5 for a L6 engine was determined by the series.

A V8 Nomad would be 2, Greenbrier/300 Deluxe would be 4, Concours/Malibu would be 6, and Concours Estate would be 8.
A L6 Nomad would be 1, Greenbrier/300 Deluxe would be 3, and Concours/Malibu would be 5

The option codes appear to be out of position as well. There is no "3" code for the "H" position (power brakes). Based on other documentation on this car, the following is a best guess.

I-3 ~ Power Brakes [RPO J50]
J-3 ~ Disc Brakes [RPO J52]
