Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...not a '69 Camaro VIN

VIN is listed as 11611L113661. Could be an error in the listing. However, if that tag is on the car it may have been illegally swapped over from some other car.

All numbers matching...

The V0425DZ stamp does not compare with other known originals.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...ad is missing 'recreation'.

To find one with true matching numbers is hard to come by, and THIS Camaro has true matching numbers. It also features true X22D80 396 375 HP matching numbers engine.

Odd to see a VIN stamped pad on a car built October '69.

It is a factory D80 car, which is factory front air dam and rear spoiler car. Also has interior code option 713 which is factory black houndstooth interior and also factory paint code 69 factory quartez silver.

And it's all on the body tag!

This car has been restored to all original condition.

It's a jungle out there.

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...beware the carefully worded ad

124379L529083

First line of text from the ad:

Here we have an all original three owner 1969 Z28 survivor with 66,045 miles on it.

Ballsy claim for a non-original drive train car that has been repainted. Missing AIR system, wrong exhaust manifolds, alternator, air cleaner lid, rear wheels, grille incorrectly painted. Ad claims deluxe seat belts; pic shows standard belts.

Wonder why there is no sound deadener on those 'original' rear quarter panels?

For that matter there are very few cars in this original condition in existence.

You be the judge.

124379N517343

That's the VIN from the ad; would have been final assembled on or about October 5, 1968 at the Norwood, Ohio plant. The body tag shown is from a car built early December, 1968 at the Van Nuys, CA plant. They restored the car to match the tag.

From the ad:

RARE ORIGINAL LOS ANGELES TRIM TAG
CODE 727 IVORY INTERIOR
CODE 72-72 HUGGER ORANGE


Unfortunately, the tag is not original to the car.

124379N537300

Block stamped V1105DZ: looks nothing like the Nov '68 examples I have.

From the ad: It is a very early November 1968 Norwood built car pre (X-coded) that maintains it original matching numbers Dz 302.

124379N518770

That's an early October 1968 VIN. Body tag is dated 12D, 4th week December 1968. One or both tags are not original to the car.

From ad text:

FULLY DECODED TO BE CORRECT TO THE TRIM TAG.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOURSELF.  IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU DON'T LIKE THEN DON'T INQUIRE ABOUT THE CAR.

124679N571000

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.

124379N552043

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!!
