63 monza tag decoding

Unread post by 65monzaragtop » Mon Aug 28, 2017 9:04 pm

Just wondering if someone can answer a couple questions on my body tag. The tag reads 07D, Style: 63-0927, Body: WR 97275, Trim: 712, Paint: 947-7. My questions are on the trim and paint numbers. The others if I have researched correctly it's a 63 Monza 2 door coupe made at Willow Run plant 4th week of July. The paint is faded but appears to be a dark red with black seats and door panels. Any help would be appreciated.

TRIM: 712 = BLACK

PAINT: 947-7 = ? 948 - Dark Red "Palomar Red" Image

Sample:

Please verify the number on your Body Tag. 1963 Corvair Monza with 948-7 would decode as Dark Red "Palomar Red" with a Black interior paint "7".

Interior paint codes:
1963: 2= Blue 3= Aqua 4= Fawn 5= Red 7= Black 8= Saddle R = White/Red.

The 1962-63 Corvairs have an extra digit on the trim or paint section of the tag. WRN has the extra digit for interior paint on the Paint section. Ex. 922-7 = Red with black interior paint Oakland cars have the code on the trim line.

In 1963 there was no paint color "947".
