Yes I expanded to other discussion boards to help find the answer.

No clue. Cowl & vin tags were already gone and no title so the car was destined to scrap unfortunately before we were given the chance to take whatever was left before it was crushed. From the C pillar back there was nothing salvageable. What was left were the fenders, cowl panel & the roof was cut off. Floors were completely rotted, doors were already missing, subframe gone along with the firewall. There wasnt much left that could be called a shell. This all happened 10-15yrs ago. I have looked for any stampings with no luck.

That Chevelle panel is nothing like the one pictured at the beginning of this thread (see comparison below). To me, it genuinely looks like a 67-69 Camaro panel that has been modified - but who'd go to all that trouble, unless it was some car show special, or a GM prototype......

I dont think it been modified.  The Camaro panel is recessed where the louvers are and the panel I have is flat.  If you look on either side of the louver ends it has a step in the panel (hard to see in the pic).  Ive tried to find pics of Omega & Ventura panels but they all seem to be the same as a Nova.   Huh

Corrected pic of a Nova cowl panel

I thought the Nova had a thicker bar in the middle..

This panel came off a 67 Camaro but sure doesn't look like what I'm used to seeing..

Gap between wide and thin stripe is incorrect and too large.

67 not original paint.



You are correct.

My understanding is that this style label is 80's (not sure if that is a date code in the upper right hand side but it says 1981 F1  (June 1st or 1st week of 1981)






EDIT:

The ink stamp style stickers are of the 70's and all the computer printing is 80's and then barcode is late 80's - 90's.

The ones with the barcode are late 80's - 90's.  I could be completely off on this theory and I hope someone will chime in and enlighten all of us

431  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 D91 stripe vs 396 Emblems on: February 20, 2014, 06:54:53 PM
Here is a guaranteed original paint and stripe 68.  Granted, its the D90 stripe which is different than the D91..



432  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 D91 stripe vs 396 Emblems on: February 19, 2014, 07:12:12 PM
Car looks great Ed regardless.  The DX1 is like the D91 but at the peak of the valance panel it turns and runs up the hood as a thick pin stripe.
433  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Cowl Tag Check on: February 19, 2014, 10:55:30 AM
Again, just my opinion, but...

If the VIN tag stays on the original body, and each part replaced is done one at a time and documented with photos at each step, that is probably OK.

Moving the VIN tag from a car to another body is not OK. 

I understand that but what if the cowl & dash needed to be replaced and the tag & vin & hidden vins had to be moved to new pieces? Would that not be similar if not the same.  Im not busting your balls just wonder when the gray area ends and the line begins.
434  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Cowl Tag Check on: February 19, 2014, 10:11:01 AM
In my opinion, a "rebody" is the same as a "VIN swap" and should be handled the same.

I agree

But lets play devil's advocate for a minute:

Lets say a car is a complete rust bucket or had/has been totaled or was a previous track car (drag or road race) and it requires all new floors, firewall, inner & outer quarters, windshield and back glass channels, dash, trunk floor, trunk lid, doors and fenders.  Would that not be considered a "rebody" if all or most of those parts were replaced either with NOS sheetmetal or not?   

I guess ultimately my question is how far is too far..??..

Great looking car.  Makes me wish I would have put the DX1 back on my 69.
