I would love to buy this car, butternut yellow too! Just one question, is that a double-strike on the 'V' of the pad stamp? Not suggesting anything amiss, and maybe it's just the way the photo displays on my iPad.

X2, these mishaps come in threes, so congratulations, you've survived all of 'em. Now you're safe, you can get stuck into that restoration!
Seriously, good luck and hope the car has not suffered from the years laid up. Post plenty of pics!

ZL-1 #27 springs to mind as a disclosed VIN swap, although I can't recall if a P-o-P was involved.

Let me put this fire out before it gets started.  Sometimes words get lost in translation.  The dealer database which is linked to the wording in the order process is not what we use. That data base as it explains is hobbyist created, it does provide some invaluable information and we suggest that you input your data when you receive it, but it is not maintained by NCRS it is hobbyist created, therefore not all information in it can be documented or supported. The data you get will come from the GM file. Not the aniline database. Wink
Roy, I apologise unreservedly if I misunderstood the wording of the email confirmation note, and caused any offence in the process. I had understood it to mean that NCRS got the dealer code from the GM records, but that the decoding of that code into a dealer name and address came from the database that was compiled from owner-provided details. Having re-read the wording, I understand the intent, that the database is not maintained by NCRS but that we can assist in it's accuracy by providing the info that our report, based on contemporary GM data, provides.
Thank you for clarifying, and once again, sorry for my confusion. This is a great service that is very much appreciated.

what the service does for us is PROVIDE GM CONFIRMATION of that information!
Did you read the disclaimer note on the email confirmation? Not to take anything away from this great service (I have already paid my $50, transaction #39) and it is the best chance many of us have to track down more history on our cars, but the accuracy of the dealer info you will get is entirely dependent on the dealer code database, which did not come from GM.

Well, I just paid my $50 so fingers crossed!

Probably not a helpful answer to your question, but I don't think encouraging repro window stickers is a good idea; even though some can spot a fake at 20 paces, it could easily fool a future owner into honestly trying to pass off a car as something it may not be, and someone will get burnt.

Thanks Guys, wasn't meaning cars on the lot though (although that is another similar scenario!); say you bought a car new, and then a couple of months later a piece of glass got damaged and you had to replace it, would the replacement piece from the dealer have similar manufacturer's markings and codes to factory-fitted pieces?

X55 = SS350, without Z21 (style trim) or Z22 (RS).
146  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Glass Codes on: April 29, 2014, 04:23:26 AM
If you went to your local Chevy dealer in the late 60's or early 70's to buy a replacement for a broken or damaged piece of Camaro glass, would it have had the same markings as factory-fitted LOF or PPG glass, including a date code?

Nice work Ed!
148  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Chrome trim options. on: April 28, 2014, 04:55:39 AM
An X77 car should not have the wheel opening trim or the quarter panel simulated louvers. There's a good explanation of the X codes and style trim/RS combinations here: http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#XnnCodes and if you scroll further down that page, there's a table listing exactly what features each of the X code cars had from the factory.
A previous owner must have taken a fancy to adding a bit of bling to your car!

Although it's related to the 69 model year, this thread over at Team Camaro explains how the system functions, and why the buzzer has 3 terminals:
