General Discussion / Re: Dealer number
« on: January 05, 2018, 05:49:18 PM »
I have a friend who is an original owner of a 68 Camaro that he ordered himself.  Still has the car...
So he figures for the helluvit, he'll get the NCRS dealer report to have as more info.
To his surprise, he gets the report and it lists a dealer number, with an additional statement about not being able to identify a dealer name.
My friend calls the person at NCRS and he explains what he has in terms of paperwork, original window sticker, protecto plate...whatever.
In essence, he bought the car at Sausman Chevrolet outside Harrisburg, PA in 68.  The dealer number on the report is one number off the one listed on the window sticker.
He calls the NCRS person and explains the situation.......however, the person at NCRS wouldn't listen to him and wouldn't correct the report / cert....even with proof-positive data.

So.....just because you get a report from the NCRS, I wouldn't take it as gospel truth.

Thanks for the info but the goal here is to find and document other 68/69 Camaro's with their original LH door mirror frame that has no mold line/seam. 

What has always amazed me  - are the differences between original "from the factory" parts vs. original NOS GM parts.  I was told by a Camaro expert to never say "that's absolutely" the way it is.  As in this case it seems quite possibly that there were few mirrors that were flat vs ribbed.  Original is original.  So how do you argue that?  The part number is what its supposed to be.

Btw, my GM NOS mirror dated April 1970 has a "mold / parting line" as seen in the eBay pics.

Thousands of ads out there, what are you looking for? Also want year Camaro do you have?

Paul

Paul...I have a 69 SS 350....

I looked online for old vintage newspaper ads for Reese Chevy in Mechanicsville, PA without any luck....nothing that I don't have to pay for.

Next time I go to Carlisle, I'll make a stop at a local library there and check it out.

Thanks,
Mike

Finally spent to $50 on the NCRS Shipping / Dealer info.....said my car was shipped to Reese Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, PA - near Carlisle.

Does anyone have anything related to that dealership, like dealer emblem, pictures, info???  I'd be glad to hear from you if you do....

Thanks,
Mike

With that date and 2 fuel lines, it is an SS.

Kurt......what does the date have to do with it?....Just asking....:) 
The only small block engine RPOs in '69 to have two fuel lines were LM1 and L48 (SS), and this car's build date is too late for it to have been an LM1.

Oh...ok!! Gotcha- Thanks.
