Next is "44, which is the tire code. There are a lot of different tires used or available. I will only list a few common ones here.

The next three digits is the scheduled production build date for the car. "112" in this case stands for January 12, 1968. They used 1-9 for January - September, than they used A - October, B - November, and C- December. Production for the new model year generally started August 1st.

304 - March 4

The next six digits are the vehicle shipping number. This is also the number that will be stamped on the body. One on the radiator support and one on the trunklid lip. 1967 had it up under the rear bumper. Okay, that takes care of the first line


Now let's look at the second line up from the bottom. We are interested in the larger digits, but they are listed under headings on this line. You see a smaller 1-8, all codes listed under these set of smaller numbers aremoldings. Here they are:

1 - 9 = wide sillmoldings

A - 4 = 3.23 ratio

"TRM" code which is short for trim. It is the interior codes for the trim, seats, and color. Under T (this is the trim grade)

S - Sport

Under R (this is the seat code)

Under M (this is the interior colors)

X - black

"PNT, which is short for paint. This tells us the color of the car and if it is two tone paint or monotone. The letter or number under "P" designates the color of the roof. The second letter/number under "N" is the body color. And you will either see a 1 or a 2 under the "T" . The 1 designates monotone paint and the 2 designates two tone paint. Here are some of the color codes:

G - Racing Green metallic

1 - Monotone

Next up is "UBS" . The first one is the interior upper door frame color. It will have a letter/number under it same as the paint codes, to designate your color. The next item is to designate buffed paint, which was only for Silver Metallic
