    Properly laid out Lynch Road tag, with no bend as they were hung in the windshield frame during paint and not screwed in place and bent up like other car lines. I am suspect as to no inspection stamps though... so maybe someone had it reproduced and tucked the original away or it was lost and this tag done from a build sheet.... or the inspectors were on lunch break! lol

      No need to yell... I've never seen a tag without at least one inspector stamp.

          welcome to FBBO

          everyone has pretty much covered it

          you can try www.MyMopar.com (in tools) or www.AllPar.com
          both have (or use to anyway) decoders

          good luck, sounds like a nice car

          A little more research. 7x is the black single painted-on stripe on the side, longitudinal. (V)6? would be the vinyl double stripe, (v)7? is single painted on. V was the location on the broadcast sheet, so that digit didn't appear on the tag, 6 or 7 determined which stripe, ?was color, red white blue black etc.

          They exist to varying degrees across years and plants.

          Inspection stamps for some years and plants are very common but not all legitimate tags have an inspection stamp.

            @dadsbee, if you dont mind, what does the 8W on your tag mean? Just curious, i can't figure it out.
            Edit: I'm sure it's in your build thread, i just didn't see it.

                it is the same on Plymouth tags from Lynch road for the 1969 model year, too.
                There was just no "V8-" stripe available but "V6-" and "V7-" stripes instead for Plymouths.

                "V6-" is a longitudinal tape stripe and "V7-" a painted pinstripe.
                So ie an RR has a white tape stripe from the factory the tag would read "6W" = "V6W"
