Nuthin' for nuthin' but both tags have been off the car. The dash top was replaced and the body tag has non-original rivets. Both tags look real but may not have been on this car originally. Check those hidden VINs.

VIN not listed

From the ad: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS (X22)

Don't know why that would matter as the car now has a 454/700R4 and many other mods. The tag also shows the 729 white hounds tooth interior which it does not have.

They may get the opportunity to do that.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...misleading statement

Ad contains the following statement: The X11 Code on the trim tag proves this was a real RS/SS from the factory.

No it does not. X11 indicates it was built with Style Trim Group. That's it. X11 can be found on 6 cylinders and ZL1s. There was no X code for RS.

Nice looking car, might be a real RS-SS. Or not.

From the ad:

"ALL NUMBERS ARE CORRECT, IT HAS THE ORIGINAL DZ 302 THAT WAS REBUILT AT THE TIME ,ALSO THE ORIGINAL M21 MUNCIE THAT WAS REBUILT , AS WAS THE REAR END..."

That VIN was final-assembled on or about July 8, 1969

Claimed engine date is February 6; 152 days prior. Trans is dated Dec 27, 1968 [not 69 as stated]; 193 days prior. Axle date is close but may not be OE to this car.

Body tag has errors; 07C would be the third week of July. Norwood was shut down July 14-Aug 11.

Not its 1st rodeo:

Decoding/Numbers / interesting but rough...
« on: December 07, 2018, 01:38:24 PM »

Has the very rare 6500/8000 tach/fuel gauge and the axle is still there. But short of getting it for much less than the BIN, probably too rough to build.

http://www.detroit60.com/id251.htm

124379N706456...final-assembled on or about October 29,1969.

Body tag is X33D80 02B second week February, 1969.

One or both tags are not original to the car. The dash top is a reproduction meaning the VIN tag has been removed.

From the ad: As well, this is a by the numbers restoration with everything restored accurate to its original Norwood cowl tag right down to its desirable 10 10 Tuxedo Black color code.

Car was final-assembled on or about April 22, 1969. Has an 10A body tag, 1st week October 1969. One or both tags are not original to the car.

True. If the VIN tag has been swapped, owning this car will get exciting.

The ad makes no mention of Indy Pace Car or Z11 but it does have the door decals. Built too early to be a real Z11.
