    What would Y6 signify on a 66 fender tag? This is under the capital Y on the second row. Also w6 on the top row - a 6 under the small "w"

    So far, none of the fender tag decoding sites have addressed what "Y" and "w" signifies.

    Thanks

    The best, most widely available 66/67 tag decoder is on the 66/67 Charger registry site.

    It is, however partially Charger specific as it does not list options not available on Chargers (like bench seats).

      I’m using the Dodge Charger site as it seems the most informative. I wonder if a 6 under “Y” is vinyl top?

      Also the 66 fender tag has an 8 digit sequence shipping order number on. But this is different from the last 8 numbers of the VIN - correct? Or not correct?

      I’ve only dug into this on my 67 but the data plates were different in 66.

      thanks

        Yes. Y6 is Vinyl Roof- Black. Yes, the sequence number is different than the VIN.

        This is a Lynch Road assembled car so that may explain some of the issues. I did subsequently find that the so number is not the VIN on pre 69 cars.

        thanks

        The VIN and SO numbers are two distinct numbers in all years. They started putting both on the fender tag in 69, as well as the last eight digits of the VIN stamped into the body.

        The SO is stamped on radiator support and covered by anti-freeze sticker, driver's side. Poor pic but helps with location. ID numbers 076.JPG ID numbers 077.JPG

        w6 = built for Canada order or New car with 5 gallons of gas

        That is listed for '67 but could have carried over.

        Probably makes sense as the car came out of Canada. Thanks.
