Originality / Re: Door certification decal

My car, 671122 did not have the sticker on it.  I have owned it since 76, and my brother owned it before that.

Car 671208 did have the sticker.  Look on page 200 of Jerry's book (the 1993 edition).

Also, $18,000 for a Camaro in 1984 (before the first Muscle Car price run up in the late 80's) would be unheard of. These car were not collector cars yet at that time.

Actually, I looked at a very low mile 69 Z/28, white with black stripes in 1984.  It was advertised as "tight and right" and was in Chicasha Oklahoma.  Asking price was $15,000.00.

It is a shame this guy won't talk to Kurt to see if the car is the real deal.

1969 - Orphans / 19N513317 engine on ebay
« on: September 21, 2009, 06:38:02 PM »

Seller: cnjr107in West Tennessee

GM Original Real Deal 1969 Camaro Z28 engine block 3932386 cast date I-10-8 . DZ 302  engine code V0918DZ . Machine work is complete and block is ready to use. 40 over bore with new brass freeze plugs and new cam bearings. The block has been magnafluxed and no cracks found.

Yes, they reset, I believe at 100001, but guess it could be 100000.  However, the BDY number doesn't necessarily mean that was the sequence out the door.  That would correspond more to the VIN.  VIN wasn't assigned until it was in the plant.  BDY # assigned much earlier in the process, and they did not necessarily go to the plant from fisher body in order.  Notice our car VIN's are 955 apart, but the BDY #'s are 1271 apart.  Other examples have an even greater spread.

Also, this is when GM started putting on the mylar VIN decal in the door jamb.  Mine does not have it, and never did, but the white car in Jerry's book (about 80 vin's after mine) did get it.  By all rights mine should have received the decal, being that the BDY number was reset, and I have a very low BDY number (381), but for whatever reason, it did not get the decal.

I know that the 08B date was skipped and was wondering if there are any 08A dates on cowl tag for 1969 extended production camaros? Thanks

Mine is 08A X77 D80 with body number 100381.  Vin 671122

There is a white one that is also 08A in Jerry's book.  Vin 68xxxx (can't remember exact vin)  Also know of a third one that has been parted out.  Was owned by guy with the name of lzdick on the yenko site.

Hope this helps.

While I agree the ebay seller "may not keep track of who he sold it to", he may keep track.  Also, some of the auctions show the name of the buyer.  Even if the auction doesn't show the buyer's name, many times you can figure out who bought it by looking at feedback.  So, that would be some possible leads, which beats the heck out of no leads at all.  If I was looking for a long lost part, I would be thrilled to have an ebay lead, even if it were a few years old.

Just my 02 cents.
