Any idea how long a car took from start to finish?

Sorry I had some wrong days because of wrong calander.S355 would be 19th of feb which was 4hweek and car was 5th week of Feb car 02E. I guess if it took a week to build the cars this all adds up as the work order nubers were made a couple days ahead of starting body build.

firez -

The S355 on your trim tag is the Fisher Body body scheduling code.  The "S" does not represent the 19th day of the February, but the 19th day of the Fisher Body production calendar for February.  Assuming they worked Monday through Friday only with no holidays off (anybody know for sure?) in February 1968 your car would have been started on February 27, 1968.  February 27, 1968 is in the fifth week (05E) of February 1968!  Read this for more detail and info:  http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#CowlTag

Still looking for someone with a LA car to compare the trim tag build date to the work order number. Thanks

The Fisher Body body scheduling code on my 02C Van Nuys built '68 Z/28 is L188.  L = the 12th day of the Fisher Body production calendar for February (or February 16th, 1968??).  February 16th, 1968 is in the third week of February (02C) 1968!    Smiley

Paul

P.S.  These dates are just an estimate by me.    Huh   I don't know if the Van Nuys plant work Saturdays or had any holidays off (Lincoln's birthday, Washington birthday, etc.) in February 1968.  Maybe JohnZ knows.    Smiley

My  02E z28 out of L.A. has the exact same caliper dates as does your z.

WOW!!    Shocked    Two Van Nuys '68Zs built one to two weeks apart with all four brake caliper dates the same!!     Cool    I guess they are original.    Grin

Hi Guys -

Just for fun I checked the "numbers" on the brake calipers on my 02C Van Nuys built '68Z.  Here's the data on the calipers:


Left front caliper:

Inner half casting number:  5455530
Julian date:  304  (October 31,1967)    Assuming per Ed's comment, that this number is the julian date.

Outer half casting number:  5455533
Julian date:  37  (February 6, 1968)


Right front caliper:

Inner half casting number:  5455530
Julian date:  346  (December 12, 1967)

Outer half casting number:  5455533
Julian date:  352  (December 18, 1967)


I'm assuming my calipers are original as the car has been in storage for 26 years and the only unoriginal part I've found on the car is the water pump.  Hope this helps...    Smiley

Everyone starts somewhere. With Toms' approach and attitude you could learn to fix anything.

I got a junk fender from a local body shop to practice on.

Agreed, as long as you start as Tom did; with a junk fender and practice, practice, practice.  My point was not to "start" with a $1500 plus NOS quarter panel on your restoration project.  Gentlemen, start your MIG welders!    Grin

True, I mis-spoke... Meant "originally sold"...

I believe only the Norwood factory built first generation Camaros for export to Canada.  I have never seen a Van Nuys built first generation Camaro that was originally sold in Canada.    Smiley

Leave it to the pros, especially if you're using NOS sheet metal.  NOS sheet metal is just too expensive for you to be learning and practicing on.  Just my two cents.  Good luck with the restoration.   Smiley

Where was your car built? Canada, if you're lucky.

No first generation Camaro was built in Canada.


I dont think its matching numbers but for now the VIN is 124378L338993.

Wayne's car was built in Van Nuys, CA.   (Where all the good Camaros were built!    Wink )
