A recent thread by Ned was discussing labels, stickers, stamps and the like and the challenges in finding photos of where that stuff was supposed to go. Since this forum and its members have been an amazing source of info to me, I wanted to pay it forward by putting these pics out there for the next guy who was looking for this kind of information. I’m lucky enough to be the second owner of a 1967 Caprice with 28k original miles on it. Pretty much the car is just like it was when it rolled off the showroom floor, so I thought a little documentation might be handy for someone down the line. It’s just photos and captions so that hopefully it’s easily searchable here. If you know of a label, sticker, or the like that I’ve missed, let me know and I’ll add more pics, or heck, add your own for the next guy who comes along. Thanks!

How about that "Air Conditioned" script within a light blue Chevy bow tie. I've seen them on the back glass, and also on each vent window.

The official location on a '67 is?

Mine is on back glass. Not sure if correct.

Rear driver quarter window for AC sticker ( from what I've read)

I bought one and it is smaller than I thought.
I remember seeing them on wing window too ( thought)
They are different for different years too

@ Ned, certainly someone has all of this documented somewhere, but when I was looking for info to fix up my other ’67, it was hard to find. Hopefully this makes it easier for the next guy.

@Bry, LOL! My favorite part of the brochure is the cover photo. What woman would try to change a tire in her negligee in 1967? I think maybe this piece was actually printed for the gents and not the ladies of the era.

@Knight, thanks, man. I’ve enjoyed browsing your photos as well.

@Astro, I have different etchings on my windows even though it is an AC car. Take a look below for what my window etchings look like.

Bluenote, this is the decal I was referring to. Attaches on the inside of the glass. It is fairly small, maybe 3/4" by 1 1/2". Basically, it advertises that you have Air Conditioning, just like an outside engine badge.




I assume Comfortron equipped cars received this decal??? I personally have never seen one on a car. Not many Comfortron A/C cars around here.

Hey Astro,

I do not have Comfortron car according to the 1967 Optional Accessory brochure. I have the "Four Season" only AC unit as seen in this pic. So maybe only Comfortron cars got the sticker?

Before I bought my car I was looking at a 68 hidaway headlight Caprice with the "Comfortron".
Again from what I've read,if it's broke, it's very bad.

Nice brochure BTW

Thanks! The brochure has actually been handy. Currently searching for a set of seat covers that were advertised as an accessory. No luck finding them yet, but at least I know what they should look like.

This is an interesting topic which I'll convert into a permanent document for the Reference Materials area.

I'm moving it to the sticky area, but feel free to contribute as much as possible!

I have a comment about the window etching, I believe the original would be a "LOF" marking (Libby Owens Ford) instead of "PPG" (Pittsburg Plate Glass) similar to the vent window markings. Apparently, that windshield was replaced at some time.

Cool! Hopefully it helps the next guy.

I'm not sure about the windshield. It has the same PPG logo as the rear window, however. What I can speak to is that the vehicle came with every piece of paperwork ever associated with the car including all service invoices, a total of over 200 pages in all. (The original owner was what some might call obsessive about keeping every little scrap of paper. ) I do not see a invoice or warranty form relating to the windshield or the rear window. I'm not saying they weren't replaced, just that I don't have paperwork that would confirm that and the file is very complete on this vehicle.

The car was originally ordered with tinted windshield, and maybe PPG made those for Chevy? I'm asking because I really don't know how suppliers and vendors to Chevy worked back in those days.

Here's the original bill of sale, but it doesn't go into much detail, though.

I did take a look at my other '67 Caprice (affectionately known as the Bondo Bucket). It also had the tinted windshield but was made in the Janesville plant. It also has a PPG windshield. I have no paperwork on that car, though, and no idea if it was replaced or not. Just that the two cars both have PPG tinted windshields. Pretty interesting stuff though and I am looking forward to learning more about it.

Here's a better pic of the windshield etching. (I had to put down a towel on the dash to cut the glare from the trims.)

According to the Camaro guys, PPG glass windshield and back windows were OEM for GM in '67. The numbers in the etch tell the story of the glass. In this case, AS-1 refers to the fact that this is windshield only glass, the 1 refers to the manufacturing plant, in this case located in Creighton, PA. The 27 refers to the manufacturer month and year or Feb of '67, and the M25 shows the method of manufacturer, in this case 2 pieces of 1/8" glass laminated together.

Of course, I found that info from the Camaro website, but then again, I found all of my carpet tag codes for Magee on the Corvette website. Let's face it, Caprices just get no love.

Maybe Paul (fsc66) or Warren can shed some light on that. I didn't realize that PPG was making them at that time. I know Pilkington is selling them now, and since they bought LOF, you can get them etched with whatever you want for a fee.

It would be great if Paul (who I have communicated with in the past and seems like an upstanding gentleman) or Warren would weigh in. Here's what I found on the topic of PPG as a supplier to GM in 1967.

  • Quote:
First-generation Camaro window glass is known to have been supplied by two manufacturers: Libbey Owens Ford (LOF) and Pittsburgh Plate Glass (PPG), with LOF being the overwhelming supplier for '67-'68 models... Contractual agreements theoretically allowed GM to purchase from either supplier for either GM division in the event of a shortage at the other supplier, but the only PPG glass use that CRG has verified to date in 1967-68.



More info and code charts can be found here: http://www.camaros.org/glass.shtml#PPG

Again, I'm not saying there wasn't a replacement. Just that it seems odd that both the front and rear windshields would have been replaced and have matching logos and yet there's no paperwork to show for either of those pieces of glass when I have receipts for the most trivial trips to the shop that this vehicle made. A new windshield and back window replacement would have been a fairly major repair. So yeah, I'd enjoy hearing from any and all glass experts. I didn't realize until I started searching for info on the topic that there even was such a thing. I can't imagine how tough a restoration must be for the guys in the early model Chevy forums if they are going for the stock original look.

More glass info for those interested.

http://www.usitc.gov/publications/302apta/ pub225.p...

Here's a report from 01/1969 from the US Tariff Commision talking about PPG and their Creighton, PA plant in some detail. The report is actually an investigation into whether or not workers in plant 1 (Creighton, PA) were being laid off unfairly due to imports in 1967. Anyway, the Creighton plant (which is where my windshield was made) had a relationship with GM as an OEM for windshields for GM in '67. Report talks about the OEM production coming out of Creighton and how it was sold to automobile manufacturers of the day. After market glass was produced at the Greensburg plant and had different codes to represent that. Anyway, here's a rather dry report talking about PPG glass, their relationships with auto makers of the day, and what products were made where.

Another pic. This time of a spare headlight that came with the car. I am uncertain why the former owner felt the need for a spare, but here's what it looks like.
