Stamped plate?

Hey all,

I am wondering if anyone knows what the stamped plate behind the Passenger side headlight on the front cross brace is for? It has 2 digits, space and four more digits and is riveted to the brace and is painted the same as the body color. I have tried searching here for any possible solution as to what this plate means or is for. It's driving me nuts trying to figure this out. I was told it was the number it was produced out of ####...

Its on a 87 GTA...

Re: Stamped plate?

I have researched for years trying to learn about these tags, but have come up with nothing at all. Common sense would seem to indicate that they are some sort of data plate, but my red GTA's plate doesn't seem to correlate to any number on the car itself. So I'm at a loss still.

I do know that not all cars have them; our black Notchback does not have the pate on the core support, and I've seen others over the years that didn't have them as well.

Thanks for the reply. I have looked high and low as well and can't seem to find anything.
