1970 El Camino Body Number Plates ~ Kansas City, MO. (KAN)

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

It is known that in 1970 Kansas City 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 or W: Reported to indicate the color of optional D88 hood and deck stripes.  These seem to begin appearing in February.
L: Probably the most controversial is the letter L found on Malibu series Chevelles. It's strongly believed this letter L indicates external SS396 or SS454 trim but this has NOT been confirmed by any direct knowledge or GM documentation. One known SS396 optioned Malibu has been reported (but not verified) without this letter L.  While using this letter as a way to determine if your 1970 Chevelle is a true SS396 or SS454 or not is up to you, there is no 100% guarantee but there is strong evidence that it does.
X: Found on 13369 Chevelle 4-Door Sedan.
Z: Found on 13437 Chevelle sport coupe and 13480 El Camino.
