Danny, here is the ad the 2nd owner saw.  Did the previous owner give you this when you bought the car?  I had found the ad for it by chance (before the car surfaced) when I was looking through old newspaper ads online and saving ones with vins.  It was a fluke that this car later surfaced only months after I found the ad!  I have the full page PDF saved if you want a copy.  Just shoot me an email.  Warren

My list has info from all years 63-72 but I usually mark down what year the info is from

Got mine back today. Zone 35. (N.J.).  Dealer code is 166 which is not available in current documents. any help would be greatly appreciated. I know it came from an individual just north of there near Nyack NY prior to me buying it. 1969 z28. Thanks Gary.
Had 2 close ones in my list.  35-164 was Irwin Chevrolet, Passaic NJ and 35-167 was June Chevrolet in Metuchen NJ.  It's possible that June changed dealer numbers by one.  If not then your dealer was alphabetically between these two.

Yeah, typically the pop was stamped on the service invoice when work was done

I won it and am working on reuniting it with the car.  Pop was stamped in error with suffix code for LM1/TH350 for a fullsize car.

Hi all,

Here is a list of vin#'s found in legal notices from old newspapers.  Mostly cars that owners failed to make the payments on.  If your vin is listed here, send me a PM to confirm and I'll email you a screenshot of the notice.  (I don't have the original newspapers)

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Build sheet vs. "IBM" on: August 06, 2013, 09:17:10 PM
Yes, they are seldom seen.  While I have a number of them from fullsize Chevies, all found in owners manual packets, the one from that 69Z is the first one I have seen actually found inside the car.  Sometimes you just get lucky.  When taking apart a car with the original carpet, you really have to check all spots under it.

Anyway, here is one from a 68 St. Louis built Impala.  Again, the one from that 69Z is a different form that the ones I have.  I'm sure there were a number of variations between the plants.

10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 OEM AM antenna question. on: August 06, 2013, 08:45:01 PM
This is what I got from Donny about the masts being the same:

""Yep. Flat with 1 groove on the top knob
AM that is. FM is a 30" spring steel whip."
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 OEM AM antenna question. on: August 06, 2013, 03:47:00 PM
And yes the masts themselves were the same between Camaro and fullsize
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: are cowl and trim tags painted on: April 14, 2013, 05:10:36 PM
I was very very irritated when friends of mine restored cars according to Johns assembly process as if it were gospel...only to find out they suffered through a subframe up built for nothing.

Just curious as I'm mostly an Impala guy, what difference is that process going to make with the finished product?  You wouldn't be able to tell how a Impala was restored by looking at it.  Is it different with Camaros?  Will if affect the value of the car?

If I belittled you in the past, please let me know where an when.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: are cowl and trim tags painted on: April 13, 2013, 07:59:47 PM
It was production related. And to see it , however because the workers resisted the new computer generated  "body broadcast" print out so the trim tag containing the option content was sprayed white to make it easier to see major option content at a glance.

Norwood had used the broadcast sheets in previous years, including a very similar form in 66 with the Impalas.  I'm curious as to why the workers all of a sudden resisted the broadcast sheets in 67?  Also, the white on the cowl tag has been seen on 65/66 Chevy fullsize cars from Norwood so they didn't start that practice in 67.  Is the B body/Chevy II production at Norwood for 65/66 covered at all in the book?
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 vin date stamp on: January 06, 2010, 09:19:24 PM
Interesting.  That is the first I've seen where the word "bid" is stamped on the tag.  Was this suburban a gov't vehicle?

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 vin date stamp on: January 05, 2010, 10:54:53 PM
I have been able to find the bid number on a build sheet and on the vin tag and it was stamped in this format.  It would look like something like C-67-141.  Cars for the US Gov't usually had the bid# stamped on the tag and a second number like the one being discussed.  I was looking at a 67 "Air Force" Belair wagon with a 03D body and 037 stamped on the tag in addition to the bid number.
