Phillips on Rt. is correct. Other one looks like #14 - 3420666. of course, they may have used whatever they had when building your console and all miy consoles are 69's

To start, Your car could NOT be a SS Big Block car with an X11, It could be an SS 350 car though. It also could have been a COPO Big Block, but with that VIN, it is doubtful, even though it is in a time span of COPO builds. I won't elaborate anymore at this time. You need to read this: http://www.camaros.org/model.shtml
and then you will know more of what to look for. There are so many clues, but with so much done to your car, it would be difficult as those clues may be gone now. Only a small % of X11 cars are SS's, so what you ask may never be known and the probability is not in your favor. After some reading, you will know where to look for clues,such as a "muncie hole" in firewall or 'exhaust hanger" on L. rear frame rail. Just saying, you will have to do your homework before anymore can be said about your car except it looks to have been done well. You did say,"you wanted to educate yourself"? That is my best advice.

Dude, you are posting in the wrong section. This should be in the Decode section. This section is only to find missing drivetrain components and match up with known cars. There is so so much already posted and on the site itself to help document what you have. Do some reading please and you would have to post detailed pics of engine bay and other areas for any meaningful discerning of what you have. All that can be detarmined from what you provide is you have a January 3rd week  car from Norwood v8 convert. originally LeMans blue with ivory/Black std. interior with a white top and style trim. You will have to provide much more info to determine what you have.

Thanks Dave. We live for old pics and the "good ole days". You must have had a good job while in school. When I was a Junior in H.S., I was not able to get anything even close to that. It sure was a nice looking ride. I had to laugh at the description of "fur on the door panels and dash...disco style." It sure brings back memories of some crazy stuff we all saw and did, back in the day.

spelling? tires? stampings? not into the details like we are, I guess?

Never thought I'd be mentioning this, especially on this site, but among the artifacts in my shop is my 76 Pontiac Astre. Long story, but a good one. A gift from my long time, but now deceased friend C. Koch, father of Jim Koch, as in Boston Beer Co. {Sam Adams}.

Reeeeal Nice, Alex! I am a fan of O. Gold...and with Dlxe. Black interior, Blk. top, no spoilers and RS, IMO, a Righteous Ride, for sure!

I am sorry. I thought this was a different forum and there may be different opinions. Again, I apologize. I won't ask any more questions about this car.
Welcome! Pics are the key my friend to an honest appraisal you seek. Many of the same folks on the other site frequent this one as well. Mr. Lillard's opinion is probably spot on and the best you could get without pics. He certainly has bought enough Camaros and seen enough to give the insight he has given. Any other price would be meerly conjecture at this point as this subjective topic is based on so many factors.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67-69 14x6 FC wheel date codes on: January 29, 2015, 05:07:35 PM
"67 and 68 FC coded wheels are stamped with an alternate date format: ddmmy (day, month, year), stamped on the rim lip but not next to the valve stem."

http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#Wheels

Paul

That date...Outer side lip? or, inside, requiring tire dismount? 68sixbanger's ? about K-H. Are they all K-H [FC wheels], Paul? and, is it marked anywhere on the outer (visible with tire mounted) surface with a "K" or something ? Perhaps a pic of an example?
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: casting date to assembly gap on: January 28, 2015, 10:59:25 AM
I do not like defining this as "typical".  Instead, this site would say "Normative Practice". Meaning, it falls into a range of being acceptable. Best to refer to the site's statement: "The block casting date must always be before the engine assembly date and it is usually very close to engine assembly date. Blocks have been found that have been cast and assembled in the same day, but that is not normative. There are also blocks that have been cast and then assembled months later; again, that is not normative. " found here,

If it is indeed a stripe delete car, that would explain the - - on the tag.

Oops! agreed. My own car is that way too. Should have caught that.

Guy claims Z. I am not seeing it. Steering arm? Dual exhaust hangar? Looks to be a muncie car. Wouldn't a black car be 10-10? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-Z28-BLACK-STRIPE-DELETE-1969-Z28-CAMARO-/191494693353?forcerrptr=true&hash=item2c95f921e9&item=191494693353&pt=US_Cars_Trucks#ht_169wt_1312

low numerical numbers I.E. 2.73 or High ratio would translate into a high speed performance type ratio with less torque multiplication translating to not as much off the line performance, like when starting out at a traffic light. Conversely, High number 3.73, 4.10 and higher, translate to  off line, hard acceleration performance because of greater torque multiplication usually sacrificing performance at highway speeds because of the higher RPMs  sacrificing economy [not to mention ear drums and fillings](try'n to keep it simple,not easy). 3.73 considered the best compromise of  regular driving "streetability" and spirited performance. of course tire diameters can affect in the same way, but that is another story.

Hey fellas!

Having a 12 bolt diff with 3:73 ratio. Or is this high ratio diff more specified for other needs (?)[sic]

high ratio diff...Mattf ?, that would be a low ratio diff. Low ratio = high numerical
