1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: July 25, 2014, 10:31:29 PM
I've been hoping to finally get this info for years, I guess any info would have been cool, but this was awesome and helps in possibly tracking down more info.  Here is what I got:  Production date was 07/02/1969, dealer code 885 in zone 5, dealer was Van Chevrolet, Shawnee Mission, Kansas.  I figured my car must have been one of the last June cars since my trim tag says 06A but based on my VIN being N6647XX.  Any Kansas folks know this dealer?  My car is a 1969 Cortez Silver Z/28, X33D80 flat hood car, original motor and trans, I've had it since 2006 so I figure I am about half way through the restoration :-)

Interesting...my car shows same production date and is also 06A (as were all June '69 Norwood Camaros). My VIN N6652XX.  My Dealer was Yarnall-Todd in Chicago area.
SS 350 Vert with all original drive train, bought it in 2006.  Looks like these two were fairly close on the production line.

Came in the mail yesterday, #846
Dealer code 592, zone 11, Yarnall-Todd Chevrolet, Chicago area, IL
A little research and it is now (and has been for quite a while) Bill Stasek Chevrolet. Anyone familiar with the place?
Of some interest to me was my trim tag shows 06A, all my parts show last week or so of June (all Norwood '69 June Camaros were 06A) and CRG had my VIN # in July.  I always wondered if my car got held back for touchup or something and left a little later than it should have, but my document from NCRS says official production date was 7/2/69.  After reading earlier posts about trim tags and production dates it's cool to see the actual info and understand it better.  Another big 'Thank you' Roy Sinor!

Great to have you here at CRG.  Your car is looking really good, but I think the coolest part of the whole thing is you worked on it together with your Grandfather.  There is nothing better than spending that time together bonding and handing down a love of cars from generation to generation.

Along with AIM and catalogs another book I felt was somewhat helpful and a good overview in areas was Camaro Restoration Guide 1967-1969 by Jason Scott.  Good luck with your restoration and enjoy the ride, it's a long one but well worth it!

Thanks for reopening the order site!  Procrastinated 2 days too long the first time and got shut out.  Just ordered 2 shirts. Can't wait to get 'em!

Please post pics as the car is coming along.  Sounds like it's gonna look great!  Both hoods shown on Motion cars in the pictures (Stinger and L-88)
look awesome on the '69's...couldn't go wrong with either!

Are you saying that you got used to the 'sitting in a hole', and the poor visibility  from the drivers seat after driving it two days?
If you want to put it that way, yeah pretty much.  As much as I love my '69, and I think that's one of the best body styles ever, it looks kinda old and drives kinda old next to the new one.  I get it, it is.  But that's the point I'm trying to make.  C5 is an awesome modern Camaro in any configuration and comes in enough choices to please a lot of people.  It's not perfect, nor would it be to everyone no matter what they made it like.  I'm happy we've got our nameplate back on a much better machine than we've had in at least 40 years.

So I've read all the posts so far and am gonna throw my 2 cents in.  I have a 69 SS350 and ordered a 2010 SS when you couldn't hardly find them in a dealership.  Love to drive the 69, but was SHOCKED by the power and handling of the new one!  Still puts a grin on my face every day after 3 1/2 years of ownership.  That's with the LS3 and stock SS which now everyone seems to call a pig but is more car and performance than 99%
of drivers could handle full out.  (426 hp LS3 is more than most 427's put out back in the day, and it pulls from way down low) Now we have better handling, less weight, and LS7!  i'm sayin don't knock it till you've tried it...visibility is fine after 2 days...now I wonder why other cars have such tall side windows.  Is it perfect...no. But it IS one hell of a car at a reasonable price.  Can't wait to see Gen 6!
