1970 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Baltimore, MD. (B)
August 1969 - February 1970

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

It is known that in 1970 Baltimore coded trim tag style numbers with an even 3rd digit for a V8 and an odd 3rd digit for an L6 so the Fisher Body Style number is a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6.

Various letters are found on the third line of the trim tag. These include:

B: B has been found on convertible and sometimes with D and sometimes by itself and does NOT indicate SS396 or SS454 but does not preclude the car being an SS396 or SS454.
D: D has been found on convertibles, sport coupes, etc., sometimes with B and sometimes with L, and D is reported to indicate D88 hood and deck stripes but this has not been confirmed but every instance where I have a trim tag & matching build sheet on a 1970 Baltimore Chevelle, the D and D88 stripes do match up. The presence of D88 stripes, by themselves though, DO NOT automatically mean an SS396 or SS454 Chevelle since D88 stripes were available on any Malibu sport coupe, convertible, and pickup.
L: L has been found on El Camino

(Build sheet shows 12C or 12D schedule assembly - kind of odd with an 11A body date. Also note no verbiage on bottom noting the car conforms to U.S. standards as car was built for export)

This Chevelle was built for export, in this case to Germany. Often the host country would affix their own identification tags to insure the car was legally in the country and meets that country's requirements. This Chevelle's owner's manual is also printed in German.
