1969 Chevelle Protect-O-Plate Warranty Card (Kansas City, MO)

[ 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

Note 1:
Just what constitutes a 'small' ring gear or 'large' ring gear is uncertain. My Chevrolet Parts and Accessories Catalog, circa 1972, only shows the gear ratio service part numbers so it is quite possible one or the other was discontinued in favor of a 'service' part. Anyone with knowledge of the differences, please contact me so I can share the information with all.
