Several months back, I requested some info. on a vin # for a guys car that I learned about.  A few weeks ago, I got an ear full (I mean an ear full) from one of his guys closest friend telling me just how much he disliked me for what I had done even though the person that owned car said it was OK to run the Vin# through this site.

First off - I would never intentally trash anyones car, especially on open forum with experts like some of the guys from this site.....How stupid would that be.. I let the guy vent and rant and finally just walked away saying man this sucks..He was not even a part of the original conversation that took place so he jump the gun too..

All the information that I got from this site tells me the car is a real x77 and that the paint code that I listed was incorrect.. I put paint code 52-52 instead of 57-57..As I had stated in my post the lighting was poor when we looked at the cowl tag and that I could have wrote down the wrong numbers...I will never make that mistake again...So, where am I going with this...

I went back and looked at my post and I can see where or when we read something that we jump the gun too quickly and call someeones car a fake, when maybe we really don't know. At this point, I'm not sure is I can undo any wrong doings if any, on my behalf.

Next time, I would only asked that we ask for more details or info before jumping to quickly and calling someones car a fake just incase, it's not.

Thanks William,  this helps a lot..Just so I'm clear on this point, if all the other info checks out on the trim tag correctly for the car i.e color code, body code then it is  possible that it could have been stamped 06B. Again, every thing else matches to the car...

Thanks Marty,,,I research this as well before I posted this thread and did not find anything that leads me to believe that the month and week coding was changed or stopped during the production year..But having said that, I'm not sure if they closed the plants down for Summer vacation or PM's like some plants did and still do for equipment maintenance and repair...

A while back I did a vin # search on a 06B build date and someone said that they thought that the 06B code was not right..So I was just doing a follow up to that comment...

My car is a 02D build date, which is Feb. fourth week...Did all 1969 production camaro's have a month and week build date (like mine)  or did this change sometime during the year.  I recall reading on one of the response post that an 06B was not a real number..Can some clear this up for me..

That sound right....If I was really interested I might drive to SP NC and take a look for myself...If the partial vin. number on the block was even close to a block I'm looking for I'd go and check it out...

Thanks  Marty,

I hope this e-mail finds you doing well..I have been in communication with him myself...He seems to know just enough about the motor and transmission to be putting the right spin on it...He just sent me a response that the motor and transmission are not matching...So I'm inclined to believe it could be a restamp since he is not even trying to send me the partial vin. number off the block...

173  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Motor and Transmission For Sale On E-bay on: August 14, 2011, 02:09:09 PM
There is a Z28 motor and transmission for sale on e-bay. The motor is about and hour away from me if anyone needs any help on the motor. The pad numbers and the partial vin numbers on the transmission do not seem to match up..Can anyone tell shed some light on these numbers...
Block Pad # is V0324DZ (March 3, 69) and the transmission is #N127397. This looks like and earlier production date for the transmission...Any thoughts..

Wow !!!! Its hard to believe it was that cheap for a complete setup...I remember buying a set of Holley 660 (I think) double pumpers for my tunnel ram back then.  I recall them begin somewhere in the $100.00 to $125.00 price range, but I could be wrong.


Chick, AKA 68camaroZ28 and I were talking and this guy came up and asked...What will a car like yours sell for..$39K ? We kind of chuckled to ourselves and said not quite.  Then we got the fully story about cars like ours ( camaro's) that could be bought for less than $39K...

Then the person asked about the crossram intake setup, and when he was told what a set up would cost, you guessed it, we were wrong again.  Its kind of funny when you know what something cost, and the uninformed always  seem to know more than you do and they don't even own a car or setup for a basis of comparison..God has to love those folks !!!!

Thanks for the information.  Now, I'll be able to answer this question should it come up again.  I don't think is will be this guy though since he sold his 1979 Vega on Sunday !!! LOL,LOL

Just back in from unloading the trailer from the Super Chevy Show this past w/e, at the Maple Grove Raceway Park...What a nice facility, very clean and well maintained...

I did not ask, but based on a quick row count there must have been more than 450 plus cars and trucks there each day with Sunday being an even bigger turn out of cars and trucks...

According to one of registration guys on Saturday.  They sold out of registrations cards for the first gen. cars on Sat...So I'm thinking more than 30 first generation car there for the show on Saturday...There were at lest 10 cars in the GM Boulevard event...These were cars that received the tracks top picks..

There were some very nice camaro's there both days..A couple that I looked at a spoke to the owners were original Z-28.  I only wish I had taken some pictures this time..

I met 68camaroz68 "Chick" from this site.  What a nice guy.  We talked cars for quite some time..


One question that I was asked, that I never thought to ask anyone...What was the factory list/sale price for an original cross ram, carbs and linkage set up from the factory...I was guessing somewhere in the $750.00 to $1,000.00 price range.  How far off am I ?
