Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...alleged POP

124379N707755

From the ad:

"ALL OF THE NUMBERS ON ENGINE BLOCK,TRIM TAG,AND VIN NUMBERS AND THE ORIGINAL PROTECTOR PLATE WILL VERIFY MY STATEMENT"

Nope. POP is from a different car, 124379L503860.

From the ad:

1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Pro Touring

That's a 6-cylinder VIN. Could have been an RS. Nice resto-mod build so doesn't matter much.

Presented as an L78 SS

From the ad:

"...this is a ready to enjoy today show and go car with no disappointments."

The X44 tag will become a disappointment.

VIN not listed, would be N695xxx-N698xxx.

From the ad:

"...factory X22 D80 RS/SS car..."

Nit-picking, that's a 67-68 repro N34 wheel and trunk lid is not OE.

Too bad. Asking price is $58,900, worth most of that even as a clone.

124379N626906

The DZ pad stamp in the photo does not compare with other March 12 DZ block stampings. The latest known 386 casting usage is mid-January. A March 12 engine would have used a 618 casting.

The car appears to be a real Z/28, originally Fathom Green.

From the ad:

"I have a correct rebuilt DZ302 engine, carb, air cleaner, and transmission that will come with the car to bring it back to a correct z28."

The DZ pad stamp in the photo does not compare with other Dec 1968 stampings. The car appears to be a real Z/28.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...wrong VIN tag?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Camaro-SS/283747579475?hash=item4210ac7653:g:xfQAAOSw7TReIiKU&vxp=mtr

124879N537164...not a 1969 Camaro VIN

No pic of the VIN tag so we have to assume they meant 123379N537164 or 124379N537164. If correct, the car was final-assembled on or about November 6, 1968. It would have had a 1st design body tag with a date of 11A. However the car has the 2nd design body tag with a date of 09E, 5th week September 1969.

One or both tags may not be original to the car.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...a mess

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/chevrolet/camaro/2351720.html?refer=alert

124379N582270 [listed incorrectly in the ad]

Car was final-assembled on or about January 20, 1969. Consignor states the engine is "...original to this car." Consignee seems to know better.

It's an 010 block casting that was introduced to production early April, 1969.

124379N667963

From the ad:

This Z/28 Camaro is Powered by the Original Z/28 DZ302 Motor that was highly desired for it's high revving motor and racing heritage!

Car was final-assembled on or about July 10,1969. Engine was built December 17, 1968. Not the original engine.

Car is one of very few Z/28s built as a two-tone: Olympic Gold w/Dover White top. But the 'restoration' is a train wreck; more show car than resto.

No reserve so might be a viable project.
