Question:

In 1967 I know you can tell by the 4P code (SS 350) on the trim plate on the firewall?

How Do you tell on a 1968 car?

How Do you tell on a 1969 car?

I have a friend who needs the answer, especially for the 1969 car

Thanks in Advance.

Answer:

Some of the 1969 camaros (Norwood cars?) had Z27 on the cowl tag to identify SS cars. Also, SS396 cars had the engine designation (L78, etc) in addition to the Z27. Also, look for any SS engine (300hp 350 or any 396 that is number matching to the car.) I do not think the 1968 car were identified in any way on the trim tag.  identify SS cars. Also, SS396 cars had the engine designation (L78, etc) in addition to the Z27. Also, look for any SS engine (300hp 350 or
any 396 that is number matching to the car.)

Not quite true. Norwood cars starting in November 1968 with VINs after 544000 used X-Codes on the trim tag.  Z27 is the RPO number, and was never used on the trim tag. Engine codes like L78 were never used on the trim tag. The X-Codes used are as follows:
X11 – Style Trim Group (includes SS350)
X22 – Style Trim Group with SS396 (black rear panel)
X33 – Style Trim Group with Special Performance Equipment (Z28)
X44 – Base car
X55 – Base car with SS350 (rear fender louvers, black body sill)
X66 – Base car with SS396 (rear fender louvers, black rear panel,
black body sill)
X77 – Base car with Special Performance Equipment (Z28)
Z11 – Indy Pace Car Accents
Z10 – Indy Pace Car Accents – Hardtop
D80 – Air Spoiler Equipment (when used – not all cars built with
spoilers were coded)
