Yes, but I would prefer to suggest research, than post anything that could be misconstrued and draw the CRG into the mix.

Saw that too, but figured orange stripes were only on the Z10/Z11 (short mid-production timeframe) rather than throughout the model year, so probably why that wasnít specifically listed. Iíd imagine those codes applied to all stripe options, DX1, D90 etc.

Joe the Camaro stripe colours for the 1969 MY are listed on the lower right side of the attached Ditzler chart. White stripe code is a match for the Dover White code, but note the black stripe code shown (9000) differs from the Tuxedo Black code (9300).......
No idea if this is a typo on the chart, or if they were indeed slightly different. But to me, surely the factory would have used what they already had (Tuxedo) and not added complexity and expense by introducing another paint shade.....
May be best left to the FB experts to debate!

The subject car from the OP is indeed beautiful, but the repro tag would put me off for good.

My LA car is 04A, NCRS production date is April 3, 1969 and proportioning valve is dated 052-9. Thatís Feb 21.

Pretty sure those photos are from an eBay listing about 5 years ago, it was an X22 Lemans Blue car being sold out of a collection in the mid-west IIRC. Owner was an older fella with too many cars, and a younger guy was listing it as Ďhelping him outí...... ie taking a cut of the profit.
The rear leaf spring mount area was rusted out in the trunk and the car had settled over it, hence the low rider appearance.

Mike can you provide the link for the paragon site where they have the dmi dated mirrors? thanks
This is the one Iíve been considering, just the mirror glass itself; although being a Corvette vendor site, Iím not sure if that would be a direct fit into a Ď68-Ď69 Camaro mirror body.....

I have a 09D OF 68 BUILD and have  heard that a lot of the early built 69 Camaros are not listed with them no information available ?
The home page for the website states:
We are missing the following data:
1969 Camaro 9N508855 to 9N587275

Sure it can be fixed, so if the owner can afford what it will cost to pay someone to do it, thatís up to them.
As long as they fully disclose the extent of the repairs when the time comes for a new owner.
Personally I would be more concerned about the karma of driving a car in which the driver may have died, or been very badly injured, in that crash. JMHO.

When I ordered the shipper report on my car in 2014, I asked about the official production date, the response was that it was the date the vehicle was released from the internal production system and was considered finished; not necessarily that it had shipped from the assembly plant, but likely linked to generating the dealer invoice and the shipping company being notified.

I have a CE4N23342 block that has a casting date of early September 1973. Thatís the first run through the 20000 to 49999 sequence.
So that is your block I referenced above Bryon? I didnít track the data contributors in that original spreadsheet, and many of the pad photos have been lost due to the photobucket situation.......
I had listed yours with a comment that the ĎNí pad stamp was an anomaly, now maybe it should be an outlier. But with only 2 data points thus far, probably never be able to determine a plausible theory.

Started trying to track CE data a while back, and there was one block that also had an ĎNí on the pad - CE4N23342. It was a 1973 cast 512 small block.
Hereís a link to post 103 of that thread, showing the tabled data points:
Do you have similar details on this CE2N block, I.e. casting number and cast date:
