I once bought a '66 Corsa turbo coupe that had only ONE option, the turbo. It was a parts car, and I think Mike McKeel ended up with it.

Sorry to chime in here, but what does 722-Z mean on the third line of a 1966 Corsa? I am seeing a lot of information that "Z" was a trim indicator for Los Angeles cars, but no list of what "722" is, not even on CorvairKid link or FAQ link.

Eric,
A different page on CorvairKid.com...

HERE is the interior/exterior Paint & Trim code supersecret info.

Kent Sullivan is a great resource for SOME info, unfortunately, no all!
He like 1966 Corvairs (as do I) and so has details for that year.
Alas the same info is not on his site for other years...

FL103Dave,

For your last question about your 68 Protecto Plate... the characters on the side which you thought were "B, T, 1 or I" are actually the following.

Top to Bottom..

R = Rochester Carb type
D = Dec 1967 Build month
| = Actually a Chevy Bowtie on its side as the Chevrolet Trademark stamp.

Protecto Plates are so hard to read...

Wow, so, F-F 722-Z, according to Dan's generous link to Kent's info, means my car originally had a Marina Blue exterior (F-F) with a Bright Blue interior (722) and no headrests (-Z).

I think it's spooky that I chose to paint my car blue (Hyper blue) with a Bright blue interior before I knew what the codes meant.

The "Z" could also indicate Bronze interior paint in a Willow Run car, but mine was made in Los Angeles. Interestingly enough I decided to add beige highlights to my car's interior, not available in 1966 but very similar to the bronze of that time. Neat.

Lots of information available on decoding body tags. Is the same level of information available for decoding the Protecto Plate? I have one for my '66 Corsa and there is a 'Q' on the extreme right side. Can't find what that signifies.

Dennis,

Post a pic of your protector and I'll decide it. I created a decoder but it isn't online.

Rick,
Here is a picture of the Protecto Plate. The upper left character is supposed to be an "E" not B.
Can you decode please?

Rick,
You state that the "Q" indicates body build date. I check some other Protecto Plates I have.

Feb. 66 build has a "B"
Mar. 66 build has an "M"
Apr. 66 build has an "E"

Aug. 68 build has a "B"

How does this build date code work?

Also, everyone of these plates has a "B" after the axle code signifying 2nd shift. Were all Corvair axles built on 2nd shift?

Thank you Dennis...

In regards to the "B" Mystery... I made some assumptions based on other date codes having "shift" assigned. Without any other basis it was only logical to assign A to 1st shift and B for 2nd shift.

However, your questioning made me look at my proteco plates as well and I also did not have any examples of an "A" code...

A brief dig around the Corvette, Impalla, and Camaro proteco plate research pages showed the last letter to be a "build factory" code...not a shift code.

B= Buffalo NY Plant

So Transaxle code AA1025B = 327 manual non-posi diff, built at Buffalo NY plant, Oct 25th 1965.
