Foreign Camaros / Second last Camaro from Biel
« on: October 31, 2021, 05:51:04 PM »
Hello together,
I have a 68 Camaro 350SS that was assembled in Switzerland.
For this I got the gearbox number of the THM-350.
The numbers: B1L28D

Provided that I have seen this correctly, can this belong to a 68 Camaro?

The sticker could be part orange / white, partly black / white.

Foreign Camaros / Various bumpers
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:03:43 PM »
Hello everybody,
at the Suisse Camaro's of 1967 there were 2 different front bumpers.
One had 2 horns, the other was a simple continuous bumper.
What was the difference when ordering?
Which option, or option package, included this?

Decoding/Numbers / Difference 124XX and 126XX Model Number?
« on: March 03, 2019, 07:26:17 PM »
Hello all,

I have a question about the Trim-TAG of the '67 Camaro.
Most have a model number 124XX, but few have 126XX, these are called "De Luxe".

What is the difference between these two models?


Foreign Camaros / GM Suisse Import, 69 Camaro RS SS, it's a real car?
« on: January 19, 2019, 02:48:39 PM »

I have a 69 Camaro, Swiss import by GM Suisse.
is the first built from 12B.
But mine has 10B as build date and the X11.
The question: can it be an RS / SS?

I can submit a photo later, as well as the VIN.

Foreign Camaros / Swiss Camaro, Explanations
« on: December 01, 2017, 10:00:24 PM »

I come from Switzerland and have been on the search for clues of General Motors of Switzerland for 5 years.
So far, I've talked to 5 former GM Suisse employees and gained so much information.
In addition, I was able to visit 2 of the 3 GM archives.
The homologation center in Switzerland for GM is the DTC ( Dynamic Test Center ) in Vauffelin, Canton Bern.
Here the cars were checked and so the "type certificates" created.

In 1967 the Camaro was assembled in Biel as the only year *.
These were available from 01.01.1967.
And only in 3 versions:

- 12637 with MJ (2-speed automatic transmission) 283-Cui. V-8 (Deluxe)
- 12637 with MD (4-speed manual) 283-Cui. V-8 (Deluxe)
- 12537 with 4-speed manual transmission 230-Cui. L-6 (Deluxe)

The total number created is unknown, but will only exceed the 200 mark by a few.

There were 4 Camaros available:
- 12637 283-Cui. V-8 automatic or manual CH version 22'500 CHF
- 12637 283-Cui. V-8 automatic or manual control normal execution CHF 17'500
- 12337 230-Cui. L-6 manual transmission CH version 19'950 CHF
- 12537 230-Cui. L-6 manual transmission normal execution 16'500 CHF

And on special request:
- 12337 250-Cui. L-6 US version manual and automatic
- 12437 350-Cui. V8 SS US version manual and automatic
- 12437 327-Cui. V-8 US version manual and automatic
- 12437 327-Cui. V-8 RS US version manual and automatic
- 12437 396-Cui. V-8 SS US version manual and automatic

The difference between normal and CH execution was due to the standard options offered.

CH version includes:

- Slice shower
- Windscreen wiper 2 levels
- Rear windows defroster
- reversing lights
- Engine and trunk lighting
- Reduction Rear Axle  3.08: 1
- Limited Slip Diff.
- Disc brakes in front
- Power Brake
- Power steering

* In 1968 Camaro's were also assembled in Biel. These came not as SUP (Single Unit Pack) but as CKD to Switzerland.
The same chassis were used as in 1967! These were available from 27.10.1967.
Here the number is also unknown. But it will be less than the 67er models.
