James that's the kind of out of the box thinking that get results on your camaro's history. Keep looking never give up the fight...

Kind of learned it from a guy I admire for his tenacity...goes by Vince Z28. By the way, the club disbanded years ago, around 84, I believe. Person I contacted was nice and tried to help.

A little more intense invetigating turned up a name of the past president of the club in Jamestown, Ohio. I contacted this person tonight and they verified the decal was from that club from around 1978-9. The person was not sure if they still had a name roster, which I thought may help in past owner history. Just a month ago I made contact with two previous owners from that time period. I am thinking one of them is the link to this decal, so I will call them and see what they can tell me.

"My 11D car has a 11-22 axle, but so does my 12B car, same date, same BS code."  It was a little late when I posted and I chose to use my memory-a real faulty device of late. A little correction 11D= BS 1118 G2 E (Nov 18th), 12B= BS 1122 G2 E (Nov 22nd). Thanks CRG.
Jonn's 12B (post #9) is BS 1121, one day difference. I bet those rears where stacked like cord wood at the plant?!

Sounds like a lot of BS to me!  Wink

Paul

Ain't the first time I've been accused of this?!!...and that's no BS,LOL.

This was on my 69 12B car when purchased pre-1980. Thought someone, here, may shed some knowledge about this club? Wink

234  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Best Method For Instrument Panel Lens Cleaning? on: May 03, 2014, 09:49:45 AM
Toothpaste is what I have used too. Not so much what cleaner, but my concern would be what cloth being careful as any abrasive scratching is more to come from the cloth used. The cloth used for eyeglasses to clean lens would be good as well as old underwear. I think applying light pressure is important so not to scratch. If the lens is dusty or lightly soiled, I would use dish soap under a running fawcet with just using your fingers or a soft bristle toothbrush and let the lens air dry. It is the paper towel or cloth that scratches up the lens, so avoid using them.

My experience tells me that date would work. I have posted this info before, but my 3E (5th week of March) car has a rear axle dated April 7th!  Top that !?
I , like others, try to extrapolate information based on what we know about build dates. Using the 912 a day production quota (going by memory, so forgive me if I am off), I use the CRG page http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#HowMany comparing end of month production and calculate my vins accordingly with days of production to calculate build date. This calendar year, 2014, some may have noticed, is the same date/day corespondence as 1969, so today, Friday 5-2 also fell on a Friday in 69. Not relavent, but just pointing out a fact. Anyway, I'll point out a caveat about 3E being only one day, Monday the 31st of March, which I feel in reality 3E must have encompassed the first week of April. The ending Vin for March according to the chart for Nor. plant is 62,3587. My car is 62,84XX almost 5000 past the supposed last March Vin. This would point to my car being built using the 912 per day formula as about 5 days into April, I figure. Considering there were 4 working days after the Monday 4-31 and then the weekend, I surmise the car was rolling off the line about April 7th or 8th. BAck to the rear, it has a build date of April 7th. I wonder too how it could be this close, but it is. As pointed out in other similar topics, the TT date is loosely in line with calendar dates, so maybe the car was completed more like on the 8th or 9th of April. Nonetheless, I can use what I do know and I have no reason to believe the rear is nothing but the born with component and conclude that some components can be very close. As a comparrison, My 11D car has a 11-22 axle, but so does my 12B car, same date, same BS code. If anything, I may have question about the 12B being Born with, but it has always appeared as untampered basd on brake lines etc..and has been that way at least the 35 years I have owned the car. So, one car is within a month of build, one within a week and one within a day(s).

Beautiful angle and pic of your car Phillip! That Caddy  (1912) was the first car to have a starter. Thanks to Charles Kettering and Henry Leland. And you guys thought I only knew Camaro facts?!

Hi Roy,
Thanks for jumping in and telling what you know about this car. Your account and willingness to clarify helps give some credability to the statements made regarding this car. I was having, and still am having, a hard time wrapping my head around a couple of things specifically about the block. I really find it hard to accept that the block used for this car was 9 months old as pointed out. Not saying it is not possible, mind you, or in any way trying to discredit a claim, but I study and review many block stamps and castings here and elsewhere. And although there anomalies and anything, I suppose, is possible, I wonder how that could have happened? And then the decking. it is incredible that no one rebuilt the engine, per se, yet they pulled the motor at some point and dismantled the entire assembly and had it decked, or so it would seem by the description, and then put it back together. They were fortunate the vin stamp by filter is so strong as most are not as noted. I am NOT saying the car is tampered with, so please do not think this is an indictment of sorts. I would have to really look at things in person and a POP would certainly help me make sense of the cars history. The car is real interesting and I do love 69 BB Camaros and try to check each one out and evaluate each based on what I know. Yourself, having acquired the car in 2006 would leave over 25 years of history that would be nice to know a little clearer. If you have contacted previous owners and you say you have, they may shed some light as to what and why it is like it is. Wink

ZLP (Tim) is correct, a lot of owners probably went to the dealer to add the trim ...
... the only critic you have to please is yourself! Wink

Bullitt, good observation. Lately, I realize more and more when you factor what the dealer did or may have done to sell a car, many unconventional combinations are possible.
Your other thought: Right on about pleasing yourself...I think Ricky Nelson had a song about that. Early on in a body person search, a guy looked at my car. He asked what model it was? I told him SS. He said he did not think it was an SS because it did not have spoilers or a Tachometer?! Needless to say, he was not the guy I chose. I was irked that he acted as if he would not do resto if it were a more "common" car, I just got  that opinion by his questions. His lack of Camaro knowledge about details could have been overlooked provided that he agreed to consult me or CRG on specific details, but he said he did not consult the internet for anything and info there probably would be wrong anyway. (I don't think he trusted my expertise (loosely) as he did not believe I knew what my own car was).
