Even in the case of the December ordered/March built ZL1's though, the trim tag still correlates with the VIN right? Trim Tag for a March built ZL1 is not 12B, but 03A, or something like that, right? Both trim tags and VIN's are related to when actual production occurred, whereas the order number is not and could float in limbo indefinitely.

Not an expert in any sense, but the TT doesn't look like it's been off?

So the typical RS Grille is black. Is it also black on a black car, or was it then silver?

Yes, you would think that someone that would order the deluxe interior would also order the console? I wonder how many of these were ordered by the dealers for stock as opposed to the individuals themselves ordering through the dealers?

My Oct 68  10B Z has no tach, no gauges, no clock. Does have console. VIN516355. My Muncie date is exactly the same, P9P11. Brake booster is also exact 267.

I'm not certain, but I believe the change to the valve cover oil fill was related to emissions controls, and the pcv valve. Previously there was an opening in the back of the block behind the distributor and the crankcase was vented from this opening via a fitting and rubber hose. The opening was eliminated when the pcv valve setup instituted. So a 69 block does not have the opening. I'm not sure about 68, but I had a 67 327 which had the opening and was vented out the rear of the block. It did not have a pcv valve, and there were no openings in the valve covers.

Oil fill tube went away in 69, and oil was added via valve covers.

"My plans were to build a Cortez Silver X77 to the genuine original trim tag that matches the 01B date of this X11 all original unmolested Camaro."

He forgot to add the part about then "selling the car for big money and prizes".  :(

Seems like every sign or ad for a Ford or Mopar these days lists every option with the number produced. Who cares? Some options were rare because they were unpopular. Chevy produced very few L78 Camaros with the standard 3-speed transmission. Very rare but not desirable these days.

John De Lorean took over as Chevrolet's General Manager February 1969. Chevy was a mess and it was his job to get it back on track. One problem was far too many customer options and choices.

"Chevrolet cars soon had 15,000 parts, with a combination of body types, engine sizes, colors, axle ratios, and interior arrangements which was almost incalculable. We could build one million Chevrolets and not have two cars exactly alike."

So much for "one of one."


Agreed. :)
