    This is my first post on the forum. Lots of great info here. I think I have it figured out, but I want to make sure I do.

    12e= Built 5th week of December.
    Its a gs 400 hardtop
    Flint plant
    198- b= Trim is black bucket seats?
    A-A= black exterior?
    2ZG= turbo 400 and center console?
    &= ?

    Hello Tkgs,
    198-B = black bucket seats
    A-A = Regal Black - top and bottom (no vinyl top) (by the way, of the 15 standard colors available for the '67 Buick A-body, Regal Black was the least common color with only 2.0% painted this color. This figure includes all Buick A-body cars -Special, Special Deluxe, SportWagon, GS400, so the percentage for GS400s paint black might be higher. Not surprising but the most common color was Arctic White with 13.1% )
    E = Tinted glass on all windows
    G = long console
    Z = ST400 3-speed automatic transmission
    the "&" is found only on trim tags from the Flint factory. I've never been about to determine the meaning but it appears on more than 1/2 of the tags I've seen.

    Here is a sheet I put together to help decode the '67 A-body GS body tags.
