1971 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Oshawa, ON. (OS)

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

It is not known if in 1971 Oshawa 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. Oshawa did code trim tags with an even 3rd digit for a V8 and an odd 3rd digit for an L6 in other years from 1964 through 1970 as well as 1972. No 1971 model year examples have been found yet or reported to the website.

Sometime between 5B and 6D body dates, "U.S." was removed from the verbiage on the second line at the bottom of the trim tag. The verbiage changed from "...THIS VEHICLE CONFORMS TO ALL U.S. FEDERAL..." to "...THIS VEHICLE CONFORMS TO ALL FEDERAL..."
