Austin,
The axle stamp does not appear to be like other typical stamps that we have seen due to spacing. I know a lot of the history of your car is known, but it is not a typical stamp.
To help reduce possible distortion of the data, it will not be included with the other data gathered until other stamp photos corroborate it as a production anomaly.
Thanks!
Kurt another piece of info that you may want keep as a side note is John Berry's 08A car has a correctly dated rear end with the original axel tubes, but does not have any stamp present. I know originally it was thought that it was a replacement that happen to fit date wise, but maybe the time frame of early August of 69 there was something weird going on with the rear end stamping process? It would be nice to find more cars between his and mine that have there original rear end stamp. Smiley

Hey Danny FYI

I just saw a pretty original early 69 base car, and the prefix started with a X.

I would go with no later than a W, if you are to replace the plates.

One thing to consider: I think if you end up going the route of YOM, that the DMV can impose an additional $40 fee per year. While if you have the originals on your car there is no up-charge.

If it were me I would run the YKZ plates and count myself ahead.

(you may be able to make an appointment with the DMV and they may look up the prior plate registered to it, or a lot of the time if you have the title from when he bought it from that dealer it will show the previous plate number on the registration.) They may also be able to tell you if your original number is in use.

Was the axel code " C BL" the last thing to get stamped ?

It looks like most rear ends the date is gang stamped, but the letters hand stamped?

Also, Kurt do you know the vin of that car?

The picture in Jerrys book does show a VIN sticker on a 08A car.

*However, this sticker does match any known originals. So it is either a very early version that was made and discontinued soon after, or it is a reproduction sticker. I believe it to be the latter after having seen many original examples.

 I think in an earlier conversation you may have said they replaced an original sticker. If so, I would hope they saved the original or took a picture of it. And maybe John Berry or Jerry could shed some light on this.

My rear end numbers look like they were hand stamped as well, and I have begun to find a few others that also appear hand stamped. This is less common for sure, and may invite criticism, but after seeing other examples I wouldn't rule it out as a possible original just based on the hand stamp.

It seems to me if someone was really trying to slip one past, they could have taken their time and gotten the letters/numbers a bit more uniform. Which leads me to think that it was a hurry job, (nobody cares how neat it is) factory stamp.

To be clear, I am just saying it is possible.  Smiley

The 4P car with the stripes would be the car that I would look at seriously. If not a 67 Z car than it would make for an awesome clone of one, IMO.
Now the black car in the second pic looks like a good start as well. Question is that the same gold car behind the black one in the second pic?

I agree Danny I have seen nicer for less money. Very light stamping.

Sorry Gary,

I still haven't seen a original early August example.

 I have seen an 08E and onward original examples... Grin

Not trying to sway you at all, but I think most titles are only going to say 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 2 door hardtop. I don't think most will actually list a car as a Z/28, or SS, or RS for that matter. The original trim tag is what really is going to tell you how the car was ordered. I have had Washington state, Indiana, California, titles, and have seen others that don't really break it down more than camaro 2 door hardtop or coupe.

Very nice, thanks Paul.

The VIN door sticker, didn't appear until late August from everything I have seen and researched. This was done to meet a federal mandate that cars had to have it by 9/1/69. I have yet to find a car prior to 08D with an Original Sticker. Seems like 08E was when it was rolled out for mass production, because by the time they would hit the lot it would be Septemeber.

*Although I have been told there were some early August cars with them, but they did not stick well and soon fell off. (I still haven't seen a survivor example though) Wink
