1966 Limited Slip Differential Decal Placement


Does someone have an original decal in the trunk of their 66 full size Canadian Pontiac? I'd like to see where the decal goes and the assembly manual doesn't show it for 66.

I can take a picture of mine ('64). I think they just slapped them on in a general location.

My original looks like this:

That's the one. I just want to make sure I slap it on in the right location. Little things like that (properly placed decals etc.) make the difference to me on our old cars.

But your car is "old" compared to mine! I'm not sure that holds true for 66.

Carl, from what I've been able to discern, it looks like the posi decal was to be placed opposite the Jacking instruction. But it could have been placed whatever the worked felt like it at the time. It's not like they'd pull a car to repair for a misplaced trunk decal would they?

Just make sure it's not placed too perfectly! I just kind of slapped it on mine.

Another thing is the repop is vinyl, so it probably would be happier on a brace than on a flat. Imagine the heat in the sun.

I know in later years the location is shown in the assembly manual so I am thinking they had a "spot" in 66 but not certain.

And I know my old 4 speed Grande Parisienne in Ottawa has the decal so I may contact Kevin and ask him for a picture of it.

Hmm, looks like all over the place!

I'm still hoping to see a 66.

I bet it had to do with how tall the install person was at the factory, reaching up to slap it on as crooked as possible.

Wherever you put it,  make sure you angle it real good for authenticity!

And thanks to our member 77srx, I got a great reply today. As you recall, he has a beautiful original 66 Parsienne and upon my request he sent me some trunk lid shots.

Just curious about the last placement picture. Where exactly on the lid is this?

Here's a shot of mine currently. I haven't put the decal on yet.

Hopefully that helps.

Well, that's interesting. Now that I look at the two shots, I see our trunk lids don't have the same inner structure! I guess a post car and a hardtop are different?

Yea, just as I thought, not the same at all Carl. I'm assuming 77srx is a view of the right hand side of the lid??

I dug through my CP picture archive on Flickr, and it looks like the post and 4 door sedan decklids are longer than the 2 and 4 door HT, ragtop and 2 door Grande.

Open trunk lid, Peel backing off decal, close eyes, raise decal sticky side out to shoulder height, arm out walk forward until you contact the decklid. Authentic Oshawa 66 placement complete.

Yup, pretty much what I am starting to think. I really doubt they had a jig to get them pasted on straight. I just wanted to at least pic the correct insert on the inner skin but I'm going to put it on up and to the left like on the hardtop.
