Cowl Tag Decoding Help needed.
« on: March 21, 2021, 09:53:33 AM »
Cowl Tag Decoding Help needed. I know that the Trans am is 1978 ws4 (Trans Am) I don't understand the exterior color codes or the interior. Please if anyone can give me more insight I would greatly appreciate it.

thank you very much. This is my father's trans am and I remember it being blue and he would tell me it was originally black and for some reason, I just never believed it and now I know for a fact it is black. Is there anything else I need to look for on the car to identify it even more?

I was just decoding the rest of the cowl tag myself and I did use that information on the main website the CA1 right under the 19U is the only thing that I can not decipher. Everything else is completed as far as information goes.

I believe CA1 also means carmine interior.
