1972 Chevelle Body Number Plates ~ Kansas City, MO. (K)

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

It is unknown if in 1972 Kansas City coded all trim tag style numbers with an even 3rd digit so the Fisher Body Style number is not a valid resource to tell if the car was a V8 or L6. The units sold number represents a V8 unless otherwise noted.

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 but SS Equipment optioned Chevelles have been found without the L. While using this letter as a way to determine if your 1972 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 and 13469 4-door sedan.
