    I could be wrong but I think you have yourself a bogus fender tag my friend. the spacing is all wrong, and it shouldn't start lower left with the RM...as i said i could be wrong. here's my old 69 fender tag for reference. IMG_4897.jpg

      where is the "J" code in the vin? mine was an H code 383 car, and you can follow the vin RM23"H"...which yours does not do...and that sequence in the upper right has too many digits...and there's no "END" code- unless the line worker was hammered drunk or hungover.

            I'm no Lynch Rd or 1969 tag expert, but it looks like F8 painted body and top, 7X (black) stripe, and air grabber hood. H2X is the interior code and 131 should be the scheduled build date (Jan 31 1969)

            *edited because I typed in the wrong year!

              Yes it is! Google decoding Lynch road fender tags and you’ll get there. I used to know the one really good site for it but they are out there.

              26 means 26 inch radiator, n96is air grabber, f8 is of course the colour, h2x is the interior trim grade and x9 the colour of it (I Think), then above the other codes represent engine and differential codes as well as sequence numbers etc. The lynch road tags did not include a ton of information on them like the other plants LA etc...

                  X9 is upper door frame paint, which is black. 922 is the last three digits of the engine assembly, which is hemi with auto. 999 is the rear end code which usually means special order, and is what they used on the A12 cars, which had 4.10 danas with eleven inch brakes. 094 is the trans code for hemi auto. The other numbers on the left have to do with the fixture the body shell was built in, and a sequence number, I think. That sequence number is a little different than the vin sequence number, on all the ones I have seen.

                  Build date is 1/31/69. 922 means hemi auto engine, 999 is 4.10 sure grip dana (all pass dana's were sure grip) with 11"brakes all around (drum), 094 is a hemi torqueflite, top row is , in order, gate series, line sequence, and year plant and vin.
                  Dark green hemi rr hdtp, black int and stripe, fresh air hood, 26"radiator. About all you can get from the tag. Got broadcast sheet?
                  V 21 is the code for the blackout treatment on the hood, not on your tag. I do not know if that would have been on a lynch road tag, my guess is it would have been.
                  Yours would have had a longitude stripe, in black, at the top edge of the fender, however, there were two styles, a single painted stripe, and a double vinyl stripe. I'm not sure which you should have.
                  High grade vinyl bench seat , btw.
                  Edit: sorry for dup, R/T boy 67 is right, and beat me, i didn't see his post. Do you have a broadcast sheet? Lots more info on it.
                  Gorgeous 66 , btw. Interesting valve covers. Whose?
