1966 El Camino Protect-O-Plate Warranty Card

I have more examples but only list a few examples on this page. If you request help with yours, contact me and I'll be glad to answer any questions you have. Include a photo of the Protect-O-Plate as plants often deviate during the model year.

Note:  GM offers 2 explanations on decoding the VIN.  Using the common 13680 as an example:
1. When describing the VIN plate: 1 ~ Chevrolet Division, 36 ~ Malibu V8, 80 ~ 2-door sedan pickup
...and...
2. When describing the POP: 13 ~ Chevelle, even number (4 or 6) is a V8 - odd number (3 or5) is a L6, 80 ~ 2-door sedan pickup. The engine designations of 4 or 6 for a V8 engine, and 3 or 5 for a L6 engine was determined by the series.

A V8 300 Deluxe would be 4 and a Malibu would be 6.
A L6 300 Deluxe would be 3 and a Malibu would be 5.
