1972 El Camino Body Number Plates ~ Baltimore, MD. (B)

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

It is known that in 1972 Baltimore 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: B has been found on El Camino/GMC Sprint and 13857 Monte Carlo and sometimes with D and does NOT indicate SS Equipment.
D: D has been found on 13637 sport coupe and whether or not this indicates an SS Equipment optioned Chevelle is unclear.
