Request for Info from owners of 1965-69 Convertibles and Factory A/C Corvairs, please
Date: August 03, 2016 05:26AM

We collecting additional data regarding the ID tags attached by Chevrolet to the suspension springs - especially the rear springs.

This is one attached to the rear of my 1965 Monza.
If owners of Convertibles and Factory installed A/C Corvairs could please inspect their cars and report the data if found by replying to this thread, it would be appreciated.
We need only the two letter Code and the color of the letters.
This tag required a bit of cleaning with a soft artists brush dipped in water to remove the dirt from the surface.
If you also find tags attached to the front springs, it would be great if you can report that same data as well.
Factory installed A/C is identified by an "E" in the second group on the ACC line of the Fisher Body ID Plate attached to the rear frame rail.

on this one 2E is the A/C code.

Thanks!!
The "Tag Team"

I would love to help but the original springs were tossed when I restored the car 15 years ago.

As I remember, I did not see any tags

This is the best picture I could manage, under the circumstances. I was able to read it visually, though. It's definitely an HB in black. This is on my '67 Monza convert w/factory air, standard suspension (to my knowledge)

Both my 66 Monza coupe and 66 Corsa coupe with factory A/C are unmolested. I can look at the Monza coupe this weekend, The Corsa coupe is in the back corner and will be difficult to get at. Both cars have standard suspension.

1964 was the only year the springs were side-specific.

When I built my rear engined V8 car in 1971 I went to the dealer and asked for the heaviest rear spring the parts catalog listed. I ended up with the springs shown -HB.
The parts guy said they were HD for converts.

From a 1969 Monza convertible with a factory 140 and telescoping wheel. Not surprisingly it was apparently ordered with HD suspension.

Of course, when I lightly touched the tag....it fell off sad smiley
