Rosenthal is still around the DC area, I know they sell Honda/Acura and other imports. not sure if they still have a Chevy dealership in the area.

Don't see any broach marks and the area of the stamping looks like it has been played with (cleaned up) - in addition to the font of the actual VIN stamp looking pretty large relative to that of the engine assembly code stamp from what I see..

Just to address the font size - I've seen many LOS cars where the partial is smaller than the engine code

A long shot, but maybe call and see if they have cameras covering the parking lot?
34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LG7 behind rear seat and writing on the side of the floor pan hump on: April 30, 2014, 01:35:31 PM
Ok no one has seen that writing on the inside before??? Why would someone take the time to write the September 1968 date? Could this be the first one of that color produced? Maybe this is something to look for in the early 69 cars? The 1st is maybe the 1st shift or first run? B/SS/37 = Base /Super Sport/ 3 7 = Z28 (style trim and not) this is quite the curiosity, even if the guy decided to eat his lunch in that car and thought "hmm let me make write that his is the first green one Im doin" Maybe there is the the 1st blue and first red etc out there. Is this a Los  or Nor car?

Lots of maybes there.  It looks nothing like the known markings from the assembly lines, where cars were rolling down the line and markings were a quick scrawl with a crayon or a paint marking.   IMHO it's too new in appearance, too long and wrong format, and was not a factory marking.  I highly doubt someone in an assembly line would go to the trouble to write 1969CHEV when it was already obvious.

One might assume so, but I wouldn't be surprised if back in the day a dealer went through a local glass shop for a replacement, if the profit margin was better.
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Glass Codes on: April 29, 2014, 09:54:51 AM
Back in the day the dealer would have replaced the glass before it went on the lot, and I highly doubt anyone would be looking at glass codes back then, if even realizing they were there.  Attention to details in restoring a car are much different than those of a new car buyer.

Your flex plate is correct, those inspection covers are very hard to find as they are unique to the L48s.  I've been looking for one myself for quite awhile now.

That one on the left needs a nice hood ornament

Have you tried going to the Team Camaro site, enter the Electrical and Wiring section of the forums, and running a search using key words?  There is a "Search This Forum" drop-down menu on  the right side of the page.  I've got the walnut wheel and my car is several states away in storage.

You may want to also download the 67 chassis service manual.  I think it may show the steering wheel assembly in better detail than the AIM
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 BB AC brackets on: April 01, 2014, 03:28:31 PM
You even have to take the vendor's claims with a grain of salt.  Note they say that bracket above is for a 67-68 Camaro with a BB.  I haven't seen too many 67 BB Camaros with factory a/c.  Probably explains why it wasn't in the 67 AIM.

There's also an old thread at Team Camaro, under Convertibles section where a guy with a 67 said he had them on both sides originally.

Here's an old thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8784.0

 I don't recall my 67 having this, unless it fell off before I had it.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 - Y-1 (Butternut with White top) - Anyone have any pictures? on: March 28, 2014, 01:38:51 PM
Butternut would get a black bumble bee stripe, regardless of top color:

It's my understanding that in 67 you could not special order the stripe a different color.

I believe those were used on early 70s Nova, probably other applications.  He may have taken them off his car, but they are not factory correct for a first gen.
