Buying or restoring a 1963-1967 Corvette? You need this book!

This book provides the means by which original GM issued Corvette trim tag examples can be both INTERPRETED and IDENTIFIED with objectivity by any motivated person with the knowledge contained within and a few simple tools. The bottom line is that all Midyear tags came from a like master and demonstrate identically repeated aberrations. As a practical aid for enthusiasts, a huge number of these aberrations have been photographed, cataloged, and documented. This research allows for an extremely reliable system for identification of original trim tags. The "translated" ECL code schedules mean that you can also identify appropriate options originally on the car with absolute certainty- not just exterior and interior colors! While this book contains extreme close-up photos of the various embossed characters to demonstrate the repeated aberrations, nothing more than a small flashlight and inexpensive 10-15x magnification loupe is necessary to benefit from the knowledge in this book.
