1971 El Camino Body Number Plates ~ Kansas City, MO. (K)

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

It is known that in 1971 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.
L: Probably the most controversial is the letter L found on Malibu series Chevelles. It's strongly believed this letter L indicates external SS Equipment trim but this has NOT been confirmed by any direct knowledge or GM documentation. While using this letter as a way to determine if your 1971 Chevelle is a true SS or not is up to you, there is no 100% guarantee but there is strong evidence that it does.
Z: Found on 13380 El Camino.
