I agree.  Pics would help.

Here is the VIN tag for that car.
18  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: January 05, 2015, 04:37:01 PM
Unlikely that was the reason (at best).  OTHERWISE it would be there for ALL cars....

Probably will never know the reason why the partial VIN derivative stamp on engines moved around in 1969.

Just like we will probably not know the reason why the partial VIN stamp on transmissions on some Chevelles (mainly Kansas City plant in 1968 ) moved around too.

Let me see if I can find any documentation on it.  I will post it if I can find it.

Gary, I am not sure why some of the letters were skipped.  There must have been a reason, but in the big scheme of things, it doesn't really matter.  We do know what they DID use.

F was possibly skipped because it was too close to an E .  G may have looked to close to being a 6.  J, maybe too close to a 3.

Sixblade,

We can not reveal ever little detail about everything.  Restampers look on this site too, unfortunately.  We don't want to educate them any more so they make better fakes.  Understand?
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 31, 2014, 05:47:13 PM
Pilot bearing would have normally been installed before the engine and transmission were mated together.

If the partial VIN stamp on the engine and transmission do not match, that should raise a yellow flag.  It is possible they are both factory stamps, but it does raise questions and I would have Kurt take a look at both to verify.  But that is your call.

Welcome Umygirlsherry1432.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine if a 1968 Camaro is a Z28, unless the original engine is there.  There are other clues, but as was already posted, please tell us more details about the car and post some pics if you can.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: December 21, 2014, 01:13:22 AM
We are getting close to working on a report for driveshafts. 

I may be contacting some of you soon to see if I can get your permission to use some of your photos.

Well I still say the price at $32K is too high.  Take a look at the rust issues.  You will have at least another $20K in it if my suspicions are true.

It is a car to buy, if you can get it for the right price.  No doubt.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Round 2: Going to see a '68 Z/28 - Need some help w/pics on: December 19, 2014, 12:48:42 PM
Paint code is L - Teal Blue, but car looks like it is Lemans Blue now?

Things are looking OK so far.  Price seems high based on the rust issues I see, and the additional rust issues I expect you will find. 

See if you can get a picture of the POP.

Do you know the rear axle code?

Rob, that pic will not load for me either.  I tried IE and Firefox.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Intake Date Code on: December 19, 2014, 11:13:26 AM
How about  intake # 3933163 date 3-29-68 on a motor # 3935440 date G 1 8  L.A. 69 car ?

Late March intake on an early July engine is maybe a bit long, but within reason. And that intake is not as common.

Others may have a different opinion.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Intake Date Code on: December 19, 2014, 02:03:03 AM
Six months is still a long time, and not typical in most cases for an intake that had common usage.
