Foreign Camaros / Re: Swiss Camaro, Explanations
« on: August 11, 2018, 06:26:16 AM »
Thanks for the info. I did not know what countries that Biel shipped cars to. Just for reference, a lot of Swiss production info is already on the site at

I don't mean to be negative, but there are some conflicts in your information and some errors.
All the 67 and 68's assembled there came in as CKD's. If they got a Swiss VIN, they were Swiss assembled.
That tag is decoded on the CRG page.  Los Angeles had nothing to do with Camaro exports.
MD and MJ were Camaro specific engines, not Impala. Impala engines have the wrong manifolds on them.
The release number is not the date, but the XCO (666th day of the year?).
The decode says that X308 is black. It is actually white exterior.

Any records of how many SUPs (complete assembled units from Norwood) were imported for any year?
During 68, the tag changes from TS/BT for the Type Certificate to CH with a number in a different format (CH 333-03). What does CH mean?
Btw, I know of two Swiss 67 L6 cars. What I haven't seen is any 68 L6 cars.

I was wrong.
from JohnZ:
The DOT marking started with the 1968 model year, but the tire manufacturers were free to use their own proprietary codes until May, 1971, when the DOT standard 11-digit code format was mandated.

If it says DOT on the tire, it was made after 69......

Everyone adds the spoilers, probably on there for decades.....

Fellas there is no BS going on here. There are only two cars in your registry built later than this one.
I was saying the seller was providing the BS / misstatements.
Lot more than two cars in the database after this one, btw.
The engine pad picture can be hard to get, but will tell us if it's real.

There's a reason I put the VIN in forum posts. :)

Mild Modifications / Re: Radiator for vintage air? Stock or aluminum?

Aluminum is not repairable, fwiw.

Thermostat does nothing to lower the temperature.

Sounds like lots of BS.
A pic of the tag and the GM of Canada doc will tell us a lot!

Way too late for JL8.  And U46 would have the monitors visible on the fenders.

If those are on the sheet, I question the sheet. Get a copy/picture of the sheet.

Other areas had manufacturing jobs and the tracks. Yenko was really tight-lipped about how he was getting the 427's installed - that wasn't the source. PA doesn't have many dealers ordering, nor does Michigan and you'd think MI was more connected! Just a few MI dealers knew, Emmert & Berger come to mind.

This was statewide OH - lots around Cleveland and in the small rural towns. For all those people to know, it almost had to come from the zone.... Maybe the zone found out from the factory, but the zone had to be the info distribution source.

That interior was available on any coupe.
All 69 SS's had discs. It doesn't have fiber optics. Which 396? You are obviously looking at the GM of Canada doc - it will list all the options.

BR is believed to be for Ballast Resistor.

The car is a real RS, but it was not a SS. I saw that new tag earlier this year....
Here's the tag picture from 10 years ago.
