Chris...what is your number..8N467701?    should have been 8N667701
Are you thinking 1969 model year? 1968 Norwood VIN sequence numbers were 3xxxxx or 4xxxxx.

Chris, approximately 75% of first gen Camaros were assembled at Norwood. More here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#Where

From that 'footnote 3' mentioned above:
Quote
......there was an overlap period where the straight bar headrest continued to be used until supplies were exhausted. This is particularly prevalent on the less popular interior colors. In these cases, original cars have been observed with straight headrests as late as mid December, 1968.
Best way to check would be if the OP could pull the headrests and check the date stamped on the shaft.
But such a minor detail, car is stunning - congratulations!

OK, so when did they stop using the early style head rests?
More here: http://www.camaros.org/headrest.shtml#1969 and read footnote 3

From the OP's link, VIN is 124379N624188 so not an early car, and also not in the range of VINs missing from NCRS shipper data.

Thanks for confirming. Knew the '69 hole was flame-cut, but thought maybe there was some other visible difference in the floorpan that I hadn't learned yet.... so many quirks to these cars!

William could you please clarify how the '68 style floorpan' differs from the '69?

Here's what my original stickers look like under my trunklid
Gary you're fortunate that your car still retains the plastic cap on the left hand shock thread - originals seem to be made of unobtanium!

Following above reply, just checked the trunk lid on my car and the jacking instruction label is in the center, like the one in your first picture, and the positraction warning label is on the right (passenger) side. The 1969 AIM also shows this arrangement under G80 sheet A1.

'H' is for Hayes-Albion, which was an OE supplier to Chevrolet. More here: http://www.camaros.org/coolingsystems.shtml#fan
Some fans were unstamped whereas others had a number on the blades. That article via the above link should help ID yours.
Trunk lid adhesive residue is either from the jacking instruction or positraction (if that RPO was fitted) warning label.

That's (yet another!) a car that I'd love to add to the garage, if only funds and time permitted......

On my 715 interior car, the inside face of the glovebox door is also painted blue, the hinged ashtray door has some coverage inside too, but it's not full coverage over the back of the ashtray insert. The rest is as William described, including the vin tag painted black suede (04A built).

Yep. Gary did mine and I was very impressed with workmanship and turnaround time.
