This was great information! Mine says E20 on my 1978 so that means January 20th, 1978 Birthday. Now onto the Trim code = 692 and Paint = 59L.

Where might I find that data code decipherer?

Thanks in advance!

Bryan, you can probably find several different places on the net to decipher the paint and trim codes or you can look for something called the Corvette Black Book, its a nice pocket sized quick reference for Corvette codes 1953 and up. From my black book - Interior Trim code 692 is Dark Brown Leather, Exterior paint code 59L is Corvette Light Beige which lists a quantity of 1686 cars painted that color. Let me know if you need help with any other numbers/codes.
