The metal plate is behind the engine on the firewall. It list things like paint numbers.

There is very little documentation available for accessory codes, besides that, occasionally different plants used different codes and not all the options on a car built were included on the tag!
The easiest method is to identify what options your car has, and then cross reference the known codes, basically using a process of elimination. Do you know what options came on your car?

Had four 57 chevys but before 69.When I saw A-1 was thinking of the old A-1 used car adds Chevy dealers used back then.Sorry no real answer but one of my hardtops had lots of extras.The dash had vents that looked like air but hooked to a under dash unit you put water in.Kind of like the old after market out side window jobs that clipped on in the way it worked.It all looked factory?Wonder if that was it?
