    Is there any info out there as to how to decode the fender tag on my '66 Satellite? I have looked all over and I can find other years but nothing for the '66 year.
    Thanks for any info, MV383

    Well......that looks like a lot of good info but I don't know how to translate that to my fender tag. I have 2 rows of alphabet with letters and numbers below and I'm not sure just what all that means. Thanks MV383

    a/6 = console
    b/5 = bucket seats

    AB/62 = 383-4BBL
    C/3 = four speed
    R/1 = AM radio

    A15 = scheduled production date = October 15 1965
    02170 = remainder of the Sales Order number.
    RP23= Satellite two door hard top
    P4X = interior trim code = Premium level interior; black vinyl bucket seats
    PP1 = exterior paint color = car top and bottom painted bright red
    T/B = inner uppder door frame painted black to match interior.

    Nice car!

    The Z13 and punch through the tag are related to production and inspection.

    The most common and best information is still Galen Govier's white books. On line decoders are unable to show the nuances between model lines and factories. Tag decoding still takes a bit of human knowledge.

    Good sites can be a good place to start but even good sites lack human intition, knowledge and experience. Those sites are unable to be all things to all people. Most decoding sites are just a list of codes which is totally worthless to any new person trying to decode a tag as they don't give any explanation on HOW to decode the tag or what it means.

    Tags, codes and code placements change year to year and plant to plant and most sites do not acknowledge that.

    The Charger site is pretty good for Chargers but unable to compare the differences in the bucket seat codes between 66 and 67 Dodge and Plymouths. The description on the site, whicle accurate for Chargers, would be confusing for a new Plymouth owner as their code may be different.

    Any idea what options my car was born with seeing as I have nothing in the lettered rows?

    I know the build date, interior colors, axle ratio, engine, and tire size but what about radio, brakes, etc?

    WL21...yeah its a coronet 2 door post

    No codes mean it is a no option car.

    No just some old folks who were younger back then. Spent the majority of its life driven by a little old lady. Though I'd love to meet her...little ol lady drove 96k with 3 on the tree behind a 273 and manual brakes....though she did hit a few things.

    I am sure it had drum brakes and of course manual but I know somebody hacked in an AM/FM radio from a late 60's to 70's car at some point. i was just curious to see if it actually came with one. Nice to know that it had NO options...:eusa_boohoo:
