Q: Protecto Plate
What is a Protecto Plate?
A: I’m not sure if that’s the right name for it but it’s basically a metal credit- card type of plate that’s in the owner’s manual that identifies your car for when it used to be taken in for service. I guess they put it through a credit- card type machine to get an imprint of it.
A: I have the Protecto-Plate for my 1969 OHC6 coupe, and it is plastic. My buddy’s 1969 Z-28 (he bought new) has a metal plate that is imprinted in reverse, my Pontiac reads normally. His is mounted on a card of thick paper, mine is loose. I understand they were used for warranty purposes.
