The export cars used the ACC tag specifically because they didn't meet US specs and and 69 export and foreign-built cars also deleted the compliance text.
Norwood didn't use the extra space on the ACC tag.
All known special order 68 cars didn't get the ACC tag. Most of these are special paint. Yenkos are the only known Camaro COPOs in 68 so it's hard to know if there a difference between F&SO and COPO tagging.
At least 2 apparently normal order cars got the ACC tag and got an extra compliance tag.
Yenkos got the ACC tag and did not get the extra compliance tag. Why not?

The Yenkos were running MV code motor which probably was not certified and were going to be sold new with a 427.  So they were not in compliance with federal regs.
That leads to our conclusion of why the Yenko cars got the ACC tag.

Danny,
JohnZ worked in the plants back then. And I have docs from several dealers. No way is it 50%.
80-90% seems about what I see too.

Idiot. About 4x market value, IMO, and he didn't sell it.

2 solid 68 datapoints. Only question is on early 68 cars, since the part # superceded the 67 part in Oct 67. But that may be just paperwork, not reality.

Still missing any solid 67 L6 data.

Yup, still in CR for a few more weeks.

Thanks!

No, it's not in the db. But I'll guess that it's a Z.

The car still exists. Was a project car for sale in OH. Don't know where it is now.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear axle ID on: May 16, 2014, 12:14:26 AM
With that axle, I'd say it was originally an L35 with an auto.

72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Database info on: May 15, 2014, 12:51:35 AM
Car was on ebay earlier this year in CA.
Restamped block, IMO.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim Tag 69 Z10 on: May 15, 2014, 12:47:29 AM
I believe that an unknown (to me) Z10. Cool, don't see very many new ones.
I assume it was a small block? auto? AC?
I'd be curious on the axle code and the VIN.

I assume you've seen the Z10 article?

Thanks!

Any plastic polish will work. Or toothpaste.

Rich,
Your car was probably shipped 9/17. Hard to have an axle dated the day before. But not sure you'll find a closer date.
