Probably just whenever the bought a new batch or changed vendors.  I seem to recall they usually just put them on the rear plate, so the guy behind you at the traffic light would see who sold it.  If you use two, seems you would want them to match.

Documentation I have shows the orig. owner wanted this option on the car but it had to be installed at dealer.


Is the car originally a SBC with Powerglide?  With so few made, I imagine they could have also run into parts supply issues throughout the year.  Maybe one of our experts will chime in.  If you can post any documentation it may help.

I don't see anything in the 67 AIM or the CRG RPO spreadsheet indicating it was not available from the factory until mid year.  Required a small block and powerglide for factory.  I've seen old threads here or at Team Camaro saying the dealer could order some sort of adapter to also install cruise on manual cars.
19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Any info on Willapa Harbor Motor Company? on: July 11, 2014, 04:29:34 PM
I'd try contacting any Chambers of Commerce in that area or town websites, ask them about any old dealership or give them that street address in the dealer database.  Those comments in the dealer database may be old.  Here's an old thread showing what paperwork they might have been referring to

and here's the City of Raymond, WA website:

IMO you should not make a blanket statement of "numbers matching", and will always need to describe the block as being "date correct and believed to be original/born with", since there is no number left to match.  Best to be up front than have someone later discover the partial VIN missing and start to question the rest of the car's integrity.  Also, Iíve seen a MU block with casting dates close to yours that was assembled, as I recall, on Aug 19th, so to me the October 7th engine assembly date stamp raises my eyebrow.  Iím not sure it would sit around that long before assembly, but I am not familiar with the inventory methods at engine plants.  Also, if it was decked one would think the engine assembly stamp would also be gone.  Why would they remove the partial and not the assembly date?  As already mentioned, post up some pics.

There are ways to try and pull the old number back up, using chemicals or special instruments.  Do an advanced search at the above left section and you should find old threads.  Might be worth a try.

FWIW, the engine I mention above was from an 11B car.  Seems the inventory control on L48s at the assembly plant must have been FIFO, with some stuck back in the corners and waiting awhile before getting pulled for assembly.

A week ago I posted that NCRS sent me my car dealer #166 in zone#35. they had no info on that dealer #. During an extensive on-line search I found on
www.drnew.com and one other site that a "Judge Chevrolet" and sometime after added olds and geo to there name. It was a 60s thru 80s dealer changing to "Beacon Chevy" after that, going out of business around 2000 in Hightstown NJ. This dealership name would fit perfectly before "June Chevrolet" that was dealer #167. I even have a pic. of it before it was recently torn down and rebuilt as part of a strip mall area. Any thoughts on this. Any one from that area? Thanks, Gary.

You can submit info on dealers to NCRS, to help fill in missing database information.  See the bottom section of this web page:

Got a reply back on my order 1096 today, saying no information on VIN 124677L117xxx  Sad  Anyone else have a problem with early 67 LOS documents?

Today I received an email from Marilyn Heitzman, stating that an error was made and they do have info on my car!  Not sure how they discovered this, unless the "no hits" were being re-looked, but this news made my day.  A credit had already been issued so I'll place a new order tonight.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: L48 alternator part number on: July 07, 2014, 10:08:39 PM
Alternator was installed at the assembly plant not the engine plant, so probably 1 to 3 or 4 weeks prior to the assembly date.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: K79 option on: July 07, 2014, 10:03:39 PM
As was discussed in your "L48 alternator part number" thread, the 61 amp 1100750 for a car with air cond.  It was required for RPO C60
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: July 07, 2014, 09:56:09 PM
Lid on a 67 11B LOS, stamped T43 (the 3 almost looks like a 5) and does not have the oval hole in the center toward the front edge.  One hole to the right of latch plate and two to the left were drilled out when a PO added the spoiler.  FWIW this is a convertible and the LH quarter is stamped H43 2 and the right is H43 3.







26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: June 28, 2014, 03:25:50 PM
Here's an old thread on early 67 lids with pictures, apparently LOS and NOR were different:

HBC carries repop mufflers, not sure how correct they are.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: L48 alternator part number on: June 16, 2014, 09:19:42 AM
Yep, 1100750 61 amp.  See UPC C60 Sheet C1 in the AIM.

Got one that says "GM Overseas Distribution" Possibly the Netherlands. Bummer... Ya think this might have been a serviceman working overseas and ordered it up? The original Delivery Dealer = Dealer Code 1 Zone 21 . Anybody know what or where that is?...Danny

Look back a few pages, Kurt posted a long list of Zones as of 1969 and #21 was "export"
