Nova and Chevy II Fisher Body Cowl Tag decodingby Wayne Bushey

1962-1967 CHEVY II
COWL TAG INDENTIFICATION
(Position 1 & 2)



This is an article full of numbers and letters that will help you understand how your Nova was built. Follow each area on your cowl tag and compare it to the text. If you have any questions feel free to call us at the office.

Position # XXXXX: This position denotes the actual month and week the body assembly was produced at the assembly plant. The month and week coding is the same for all years.

Month Specification

01- January 07- July Week Specification
02- February 08- August A- First Week
03- March 09- September B- Second Week
04- April 10- October C- Third Week
05- May 11- November D- Fourth Week
06- June 12- December E-Fifth Week
Example: 06C = June/ Third Week

Position # XXXXX: This code is spelled out "STYLE" in 1962-1964. In 1965 through 1967 the letters "ST" are only shown. "STYLE" or "ST" refers to the actual year and body style or code immediately following. This code consists of 2 sets of numbers separated by a dash or hyphen. The first two letters designate the actual year of the car. The second group of numbers designates the actual model of the car. In 1962 - 1964 the model number is XXXXX 3 numbers, but is preceded by a zero. From 1965 through 1967 five number designate the full model code.

All 65-67 Nova cowl tags list V8 model numbers instead of six cylinder model numbers. Always check the VIN on the door jamb to identify engine type. Fisher Body did not care if the car was V8 or six. The Chevrolet Plant put the VIN number on the body and installed the engine. This is the reason the numbers don't always match.

Position #3: Body. This code begins with a letter code designating the actual assembly plant. There were five plants producing the Nova during the mid-Sixties. They were Framingham, MA; Kansas City, MO; Norwood, OH; Oakland, CA; Willow Run, MI. In 1962 through 1964 the Norwood Prefix was NW. In 1965 the prefix changed to NOR and continued that way through 1967. The Framingham prefix was, FR; Kansas City was KS; Oakland was OA; and Willow Run was WR.
The remaining part of this code refers to the sequential number of this body to the actual plant. This number has no correlation to the VIN. This number gets very confusing when more than one car line is assembled in one plant, such as Novas and Corvairs at Willow Run. Some research material points toward this number being sequential for all bodies in that plant but this hasn't been verified to date.

Position #4: This word "TRIM" or the letters "TR" refer to the following trim codes in position #8. The word "TRIM" was only used in 1962 - 1964. From 1965 through 1967 the letters "TR" were used. These numbers refer to the interior trim codes.

This trim tag for a '63 convertible was given to us a few years ago by Tom Migut. Note the accessory code X-ed out, then a new code put in behind it. Looks like the person on the assembly line didn'ty want to make a new tag so the change was made and the tag attached to the car. The botXXXXX XXXXXne to remember is these tags were punched out by hand by humans who make mistakes! We have heard of cowl tags with a wrong year on, (a '76 year on a '67 Nova). Oh, well!!

Position #6: Position #6 is the accessory code options. These codes were added to the cowl tag to define options or changes to the body.

The option codes are arranged by group. The groups usually move left to right and down, depending on the total amount of options and the person who actually stamped the plate. Usually Group 1 consists of a letter or letters only, with no number 1 in front of that letter. The groups 2 through 5 will start with that number and then are followed by the accessory code i.e. W2MP3C which translates into Group 1 W (tinted windshield), Group 2 M (powerglide), P (push button radio) Group3C (padded dash).

Through out the years many club members have assisted us in cracking this code. Some folks believe these codes should be kept from the general public because of counterfeiting problems. Others believe we all have the right to know. I don't think that these codes have that big of an impact on any one car making it worth lots of money.

The 1965-1967 Nova VIN tags look like this 1967 tag. These tags are rivited to the drivers door jamb with special 6 point rivets. The first five numbers are the model number. The next number is XXXXX year. The letter is the assembly plant. The last six numbers is the number off the assembly line.
