From the ad:

Check out the VIN number 12467N571000 before you miss this opportunity. That's right...first off the line in calendar year 1969 (not model year).

Per Chevrolet records, the last car off the line at Norwood December, 1968 was N569987. Although cars were not built in VIN order, the first car final-assembled January, 1969 would have been N569988 or close.

VIN is listed as 124379N509684, final-assembled on or about September 25, 1968. Body tag date is 05E, the fifth week of May '69.

One or both tags are not original to the car.

Car was final assembled on or about Dec 2, 1968. Repro body tag is dated 04B, 4 months after final assembly. They are claiming the car is an original Z/28 because the tag is stamped X33D80.

Gotta like their warranty:

If you are not satisfied with the vehicle you are not obligated to buy it!!

VIN tag has non-original rivets indicating it may or may not be original to the car.

VIN indicates a late March Van Nuys build; body tag is from an early February Norwood car.

One or both tags are not original to the car.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor..too late for JL8
« on: August 21, 2017, 02:43:28 PM »

Sold at Barrett-Jackson LV 2011 for $84,700. At that time it was not a Rally-Sport, did not have headers or the body-color bumper. The listing does not mention JL8.
