A 1977 ETT has a chart for the restrictions but no pictures of the placcards.  The 1978 version has pictures of the various diamond placcards with the words spelled out.  Both state they were no restrictions on cars placcarded "combustible".  

We started using numbered placcards in the summer of 1983 and the 1984 ETT's chart calls out "combustible" and "1993" placcards as having no restrictions.  "1993" is "combustible liquids, not otherwise specified", which includes diesel fuel.
