1971 El Camino Body Number Plates ~ Los Angeles (Van Nuys), CA. (L)

[ 1964 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

It is known that in 1971 Van Nuys 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.
