    Just bought a 1967 Buick GS400. Having trouble decoding the full cowl tag. Can anybody help? And does anybody know of a good resource to do so?

    The cowl tag (see pix attached) reads as follows: 67 GS400 cowl tag.jpg

    03D 6394
    ST 67-44617 KAN 1608 BODY
    TR 184-A H-9 PAINT
    E-2EZ 4EC 5KY

    Know that this is a 67 Buick 2 dr. hardtop coupe GS400 built in Kansas City, KS the 4th week of March. Trim is light fawn, and paint is Green Mist with different top (vinyl top?). Not sure what the rest of the numbers indicate. The A after 184 or the 9 after H, or the E-2EZ, 4EC, and 5KY. Any help would be appreciated!

    Here are a few I think are correct:

    I think the "A" after the 184 is for fold down arm rest on a bench seat, do you have that?

    E=tinted windows
    2E= AC
    2z= 3 speed turbo trans (not 300 auto trans)
    4E= ?
    4C= Ext Belt Reveal moulding
    5K = door edge guards
    5Y = deluxe seat belts
    Here is a thread on it:

    Its 4F on the cowl tag not 4E and that should be a remote mirror.

    I think the A is fold down armrest on a bench seat. 184 is the int color light fawn but some say its white. I will have to check.

    Now lets see pictures.

    Ed and Chris:
    Thanks a bunch. Very helpful. Ed is right, its a 4F, not 4E. Put together a summary (little down time at Xmas) noting what I found on the web on other GM models and previous discussion thread (see below table - send in 3 parts). No, the car doesn't have arm rests in the front. Nor door guards. See photos. At least not now, but its been pretty well preserved. Any corrections, suggestions?

    Thanks
    Rick

    Also do not have remote drivers mirror. See attached.

    Thanks 624736802_th.jpg

    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    I remember seeing that car on ebay recently and it really caught my eye because that is one of my favorite colors on a '67 GS.

    The 4F does mean remote driver's door mirror and according to the photo you posted and the photos on the ebay ad, it still has a correct style remote mirror mounted to the door.

    The paint code H-9: Code 9 is a green vinyl top. I pulled out my '67 Buick Trim and Color manual and the green is a dark green so it's not too bad. I tried to take a photo and also tried to scan it but it came out darker than it appears in person. But these two photo at least give you an idea that it is a dark green, not a grass-green.

    Beautiful car, I hope you enjoy it.

    Thank you. Hope to enjoy it. The top is the darker green vinyl color. And yes, it does have the correct remote mirror. So the cowl trim plate decodes like this:

    Also comes witha remote trunk release and the optional rear radio speaker (codes 1S and 2R not noted). Only thing I don't see is the door edge guards (probably removed during the last repaint). And still not sure what the A is after '184' trim.

    Thanks

    To my knowledge, "A"= bench seat and "B"= bucket seats. The trim code on my 67 is 184B which has light fawn buckets.
     
  13. buford27

    buford27 '57 Special

    The Riviera Owners Association also has some accessory group codes on their website:

    http://rivowners.org/features/Ev_Stats/colortrim/options.html

    Not sure what years/models they cover, but many are the same. They seam to have got the codes from a Buick service bulletin, which would be interesting to see.

    ---------- Post added at 10:34 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:28 AM ----------

    For the seat type codes, this is the list that I've seen:


    A = Bench seat
    B = Bucket seat
    C = Custom interior trim or Notch back seat
    D = Strato notch back seat
    E = with factory headrests
    K = Custom interior trim (two types of fabric)
    N = Unknown

    Sean:
    Thank you. Those were 63-65 Rivieras, but alluded to many codes not identified before. While clearly many codes were stabdard and worked across many years and models, other codes were very specific to the model of car. Thanks, Rick

    Looking for some help on decoding the options on my 1967 GS400 if anyone can help. Below is the tag information.

    09A
    ST 67-44617 BF00005 (I know the numbers are for 67 GS built in Baltimore, production number 5 correct?)
    Trim 193 (Forums Show Saddle but this should be Pearl Yellow Interior) TT Paint (I believe this upper and lower Ivory)
    CO8 (Not Sure what these codes are) Car came fully optioned with AC, Power windows, Tack in console, and driver side Power Seat. At one point it has had a vinyl top. Bottom of cowl tag has this number series 0013 10396
     
  16. BUQUICK

    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    09A = 1st week of September 1966
    BF = Fremont California assembly plant
    193 = yellow bucket seat interior
    C08 = vinyl top
