There are better relationships to VIN and body number in 67 and 68.

I have no idea what that writing is about.

Tell us more about the car.

Yes probably started life in a different car, but it probably doesnít affect value a huge amount.

Here is a case of a stamping error around that time...;all

Yes I agree with that too. Wrong parts being installed would be a very rare thing.

Itís in CA so makes sense that it would be from a LOS car.

3959182 is the part number I think. Long slot, stamped with H

Ed, I know what you are saying. But sometimes the ďworker beesĒ just get the work done and upper management may not know the details. Been there, done that. :)

Now obviously I have no personal first hand knowledge of this for Camaro production, but for minor things, I sure would not be surprised if it happened. Not all day, every day, but occasionally. Thatís what inspections are for (P T B). Again most of these things were fixed before leaving the assembly plant.

Interesting. Can you carefully clean off the pad and take a better pic? 

The serial numbers don't match but would have been on the assembly line in Norwood at the same time. I've owned the car for 37 years and the girl that owned it before me had owned it since the early 70s. Neither one of us replaced the engine. I've heard stories of the factory pulling engines with problems on the line, fixing it, and reinstalling it in the next car on the line that needed that engine. Anybody heard of such a thing? How could you prove the car was born with the wrong engine? The date codes on the engine match the car perfectly.

There are rare cases of things like this happening.

If you want, send me a pm with the car VIN and a pic of the engine stamp. Then will evaluate and get back to you. 

I have not read it all yet, but thanks for posting this!!!!

Generally we donít have data outside of 67 to 69.

Is this VIN in the DB? Danny


I assume you mean 9L510337 - itís a 69 correct?

I am sure some incorrect things made it past the station where mismatched colors, etc. where put on the car originally. But there were inspections and quality control farther down the line. Most of that was probably fixed. Notice I said most, not all. Obviously things that were very minor made it through inspection.

There may have a slightly higher number of inconsistencies toward the beginning and toward the end of the model year.
