Hi Bullitt65
That is my

General Motors (FRANCE) ID Tag.

I believe this style tag is used for the "Overseas Sales" Vehicles.

Bentley is right..  that VIN would be very near the end of November '68 production.

That is why we have these Places to go for Info -
You are right,
Nov-68   21359  7919   9L510583  3952   9N551862  21525, If I did my Math right, 1,722 Built after my Car till the End of November, 1968. Very Good, Thanks and my Partial VIN of 9N550140 is visible under the Cowl reading it looking towards the Front and Under the Heater Blower Motor - All checks out.

I also have the French Title and Marker Plates.

I do have Pictures of when I brought it home, I will try and scan them. I tried sending a few shots but they were too big.

Thanks again, I will have to change my Info on some of my Posts else ware.

I thought I had posted here about my 69 Camaro SSRS from France.
VIN # is 124379N550140

Oct 68 Build in the Norwood (N) OH Plant, shipped to France as Overseas Sales.

I purchased the car 16 years ago thru the Co-Worker of the Owner, He was here on a work Visa, came down with Cancer and passed away, so I purchased the Car from his Widow.

I did not know if there was a Data Base for the VIN #'s for our Cars, I see one for lost Paperwork.

The Info I have for the car is, when I bought it, it had 34,718 Kilometers (21,050 Miles)
Originally 350 Cu In, 300 HP (L-48) TH350 Automatic

Power Windows
Tilt Steering Wheel
Simulated Rosewood Steering Wheel
Fold Down Rear Seat
Rear Antenna.

Now - 427 Cu In .060” Over, 434HP / 483TQ
700R4 Automatic Transmission
Classic Auto Air Conditioning
12 Bolt Posi w/ 4:11 Rear Gears

Picture of my KPH Speedometer having a Cleaning and Calibration at Instrument Specialties in N. Kingston, RI.
and installing into a New Dash Carrier/ Bezel for my 69 SSRS.

Hi Doomer
     I know this post is a little late but my 69 SSRS has the Antenna in the Left Rear 1/4. I love having it there and I am also adding the Rear Spoiler that was Not available with this antenna. Will install a Power Antenna when I get to that point. Will make putting the car covering on and off easer   :)

     I also worked for a Chrysler Dealer back in the mid 70's and I have seen for our Cars - GM/ Chevy, The Rear antenna option, available after the fact, you would tell them Left Rear or Right Rear when installing. We hated this as from the Factory when built, it was a No Brainer, No Interior.
     We would have to pull Door Sills, Seats and interior Moldings to run the Cable to the Rear and the Salesman only wanted to charge the customer what the Assembly line Install price of like $12.93 as the option if ordered before the car was built.

     I am not bringing my car back to Original, doing it Old School and my Son and I are Building a BBC 427 for our “Back Burner Restoration”. I am also doing 15” Tires, Cragar S/S and a Vinyl Top,  like I had in HS. Don’t care about Pro Touring/ Pro Street and “G” times on the Skid Pad.
     I want that 70’s stance I had when “I thought I knew it all”, then I got Married and had a Family. Even looked up Gabriel HiJACKERS.

Good luck with your Z-28, Looks Great !

Restoration / 1969 Camaro SSRS Wire Harness Restoration DIYS
« on: October 18, 2013, 03:01:04 PM »
Hi All
I am Restoring my 1969 SSRS Camaro and it has been Modified/ Hacked in Various areas, Dash Harness and Engine Bay.
I have some wires broken off at the Terminals where the Turn Signal Wiring goes into the "Hamonica Connector" and was looking for these type of Male Terminal Spades.

I found them -

     And my Wire is a 14 gage so it will be

     GM Pak Con OEM Repair Terminal Male 16 14 AWG

They have a Repair Kit, I ordered it with a few Extras. I'm sure these were used for many years and across All the GM lines.

Again, Thanks
