Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...another tag mismatch

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Chevrolet-Camaro-SS-350-4-Speed-Restored-MUST-SELL-NO-RESERVE-Z-28/302740761515?hash=item467cc16bab:g:KvIAAOSwwTla~yps&vxp=mtr

124379N517343

That's the VIN from the ad; would have been final assembled on or about October 5, 1968 at the Norwood, Ohio plant. The body tag shown is from a car built early December, 1968 at the Van Nuys, CA plant. They restored the car to match the tag.

From the ad:

RARE ORIGINAL LOS ANGELES TRIM TAG
CODE 727 IVORY INTERIOR
CODE 72-72 HUGGER ORANGE


Unfortunately, the tag is not original to the car.

124379N537300

Block stamped V1105DZ: looks nothing like the Nov '68 examples I have.

From the ad: It is a very early November 1968 Norwood built car pre (X-coded) that maintains it original matching numbers Dz 302.

Car was final-assembled on or about November 5, 1968. Has an 02B body tag, 2nd week February 1969. Tag is real but from another car.

From the ad:

Real x-11 Norwood build car

Correct color combo Factory code 76 Daytona Yellow

124379N518770

That's an early October 1968 VIN. Body tag is dated 12D, 4th week December 1968. One or both tags are not original to the car.

From ad text:

FULLY DECODED TO BE CORRECT TO THE TRIM TAG.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOURSELF.  IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU DON'T LIKE THEN DON'T INQUIRE ABOUT THE CAR.

124679N571000

From the ad:

Check out the VIN number 12467N571000 before you miss this opportunity. That's right...first off the line in calendar year 1969 (not model year).

Per Chevrolet records, the last car off the line at Norwood December, 1968 was N569987. Although cars were not built in VIN order, the first car final-assembled January, 1969 would have been N569988 or close.

124379N552043

Car was final assembled on or about Dec 2, 1968. Repro body tag is dated 04B, 4 months after final assembly. They are claiming the car is an original Z/28 because the tag is stamped X33D80.

Gotta like their warranty:

If you are not satisfied with the vehicle you are not obligated to buy it!!

VIN tag has non-original rivets indicating it may or may not be original to the car.

VIN indicates a late March Van Nuys build; body tag is from an early February Norwood car.

One or both tags are not original to the car.
