The VIN-derivative as it is known was stamped by Chevrolet soon after receipt of the completed body-it was done after paint. We have seen errors. I personally looked at a '69 last fall in IL that had no hidden VINs and a mis-stamped VIN tag.

I wonder why they would stamp after paint...wouldn't that leave exposed metal and start rust?  Apparently it didn't cause too much rust, at least on dry climate cars.  It seems like a bad idea to send exposed metal out into the "field".

Thanks Paul.  I saw that before.  I was wondering if the cowl and firewall panels were stamped after the panels were all assembled.  It looks like William asnwered that for me.  Smiley

Thanks William.

Should I post a pic of the restamp?

Take care,

That would be cool to see a picture of the VIN tag or Trim tag.

How many plants produced Camaros?
NOR=Norwood
LOS=Los Angeles (Van Nuys)
CAR=Caracas?
Any more?

Thanks,

Were the hidden VIN's stamped on the cowl and firewall before those panels were attached to the shell?

I found one of the 2 hidden VIN's stamped 2 digits off the VIN tag and the second hidden VIN...and apparently restamped at the factory when they found the problem.  Have you seen this before?  Smiley
