I would definitely suggest keeping the gold car with it's original block and transmission, in favor of the non-matching numbers car.....

How things change...  :)

In late 1974, I paid $1000 for a complete good '68 Z28, orig engine, trans, etc... and drove it daily to school/work/etc for 2 yrs before trading it.

Now a part of an engine is $5500~!
But if you consider it, had you put that $1000 in the bank back then in '74, you'd have a lot more than $5500 now

What is the earliest vin stamped by the oil filter? what is the latest known vin stamped on the pad? (LA and Norwood examples if you have them)
I have 19L528xxx stamped on the pad, and have seen them into 19L530xxx (which is nearing the end of LA production for the '69 MY) also on the pad. By contrast, I know the current owner of 19L5023xx and it's stamped by the oil filter.....

First came to mind was that Canadian-delivered cars got extra fuel. Then I figured there would be no sense noting that on top of the tank, couldn't be seen once installed so of no help to assembly line workers......

Partial VIN on drivetrain components (where applicable) followed the same format as the hidden partials on the sheetmetal in 2 locations:

The only info which can be deduced from the tags are engine, (V8) , paint color, top color, and interior style/color.
The trim tag doesn't identify L6 or V8 engine for a '69 Camaro (apart from some of the Norwood X-codes that denote certain V8's, for which these builds are too early), but the VINs do.
Neat projects!

JohnZ's former Z/28 had the quarter gill trim removed by the original owner, as a personal preference IIRC. The holes were brazed up and painted over early in the car's life.

There are 'M'-coded heads too. I have a set of 3927186 'M' heads on my CE302. Have compared them to regular production heads and can't see anything obviously different, but so many subtle changes (including internally) could be possible during evaluation. I surmised that they were released into circulation (rather than being scrapped or returned for melting down) because their evaluation pattern was close enough to being finalised for production that it wasn't seen as risky - but purely a guess.

The pic of the Yenko storage lot that circulated years ago shows a car (which I would guess could be an X44) with a vinyl top and no quarter moldings, no Style Trim either. I seen a good number of Yenkos without them. If someone has that pic on file, please post it again if you don't mind.
This one Steve?

I wonder if a NCRS report would tell anything other than export car?
VIN is in the range that NCRS has nothing on..... 1969 Camaro 9N508855 to 9N587275.

Export trim tag; is there any other tag or plate attached to the car? Does it have the VIN in the usual place on the dash top, or is that plate blank with an alternate VIN plate elsewhere? What country is the car in, or believed first sold in?


Thanks for confirming Charley. Can we read the story of how the '68 Yenko was found in England anywhere?
