L78 Registry Submission Form Information & Disclaimer
All data submitted is compiled for historical purposes only. Anyone with a documented L78 Chevelle is encouraged to submit the data requested on the contact form. No owner's name, address, or email account will be published unless they so desire. All personal data of this type will be kept in a database. Anyone requesting such data will have their request forwarded to the current owner on file. If they wish to respond, it will be up to the owner. This site will only pass along the request.
Any of the following is required in verifying and registering your
L78; just some kind of proof the car whose VIN you are registering was
optioned with the L78 engine.
1. Photo or scan or the original documentation showing schedule date, VIN, and of course the L78 option.
2. Photo or scan of the original warranty card (Protect-O-Plate) showing engine code and VIN.
3. Photo of engine pad showing engine code and partial VIN.
4. Photo or scan of original factory invoice, bill-of-sale, etc. showing L78 option and VIN.
5. If you want a really nice photo in the gallery, photo should be a digital "out-of-the-camera" image at your camera's highest resolution.
The VIN and/or trim tag IS NOT verification of any L78.
Any Chevelle submitted without some form of documentation or proof of it being an L78 Chevelle will not be listed in the registry.
When submitting photos or scans of your documentation, trim tag, warranty card (Protect-O-Plate) for your L78 please be sure the documentation is readable so it can be verified. The documentation is needed to verify the car's VIN and L78 data match and, aside from basic data shown in the tables for each year, will be kept confidential and on file for historical preservation.
If you wish to include a photo of your L78 for the gallery, the photo should be in 3/4 front view and free from obstructions like children's toys, garage clutter, telephone poles, etc.; something similar to the photo on our home page and be at least 640x480. Larger is OK as I can reduce the size but cannot (with any clarity) enlarge a digital image.
If you have a story on the car, please feel free to include it either as a text attachment or MS Word document.
The registration form allows up to 3 files to be uploaded from your computer and attached to the registration. Any additional images can be separately emailed to the address below.
If you are not comfortable with supplying the data via the form page, please note the information needed and use your browser's BACK control to return here and simply email me the data at...
...and please note in the subject line the e-mail is in reference to L78 information. Thank you.
03/09/2016: If you are using a smartphone of some type to complete the form, it may not be forwarded by the email handler on your phone. If you experience a problem, like me not getting the completed form, and insist on using a smartphone then please take a screenshot of the completed form BEFORE you click the "Submit" button and email me that screenshot plus any photos you have to document the car and/or wish to submit to the gallery.
I've experienced the same issue with some other email address as well from MACS and PCs, not getting the registration form. If you received your confirmation email but do not hear back from me within a couple of days of registration, please forward your copy of the confirmation and attach any photos to the forwarded email and email them to me at
