You can also use your VIN and the VIN-month ending numbers, along with the production rate and production days of the month and estimate down to the day or so that your car was built...
But remembering that the production week does not necessarily align with the calendar week.

OK, thanks for explaining Paul; thought my eyesight was letting me down  Shocked. Will put the word out with fellow Camaro owners down here, to see if anyone knows the car with that VIN.

Paul, can you see the full VIN or the engine code on that single image, to tell that it was a factory V8 car?

Nope, that water pump sold for over $200.00.  Really didn't need it that bad, but they are getting very hard to find..
Agreed! I was watching when it ended, had been around $65 and then at the last minute went up to $203 or thereabouts.

Did the right hand drive Camaro come from the factory with the rear stripes too close together ?
It's an early-built car, from memory September of '68, and there is a thread on this forum somewhere that showed (with photos) a number of early cars had the same rear stripe layout as the previous years did, and also that the stripes stopped further back from the rear window trim than later cars did. I'll see if I can find that thread and post the URL.

Thanks once again guys, great help.

Did you win the auction Eddie?
158  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 302s and CE Blocks on: March 06, 2014, 05:46:04 AM
Although only Flint supplied production 302 blocks, could a 302 that was replaced under warranty be either a Flint or a Tonawanda block, or only Flint? I've re-read the CRG article on warranty engines, which indicates that CE V8 blocks came from both plants, but unsure if one did SB and the other BB blocks. I've never seen a Tonawanda CE small block myself (though by itself that means nothing), but have seen several Tonawanda CE big blocks.

thats pretty wild. So they said they switch it (back) to a left hand drive? If it was originally delivered there it wouldn't be a factory right hand drive Camaro?
No, that Super Chevy article is 12+ years old, and the car remains RHD to this day (don't think he'll ever change it, as this car has a unique documented history). But as all Camaros were LHD from the factory, this one was converted locally upon importation when new; at the time, all cars here had to be RHD, so there was no other option but to pay for the conversion if you wanted a vehicle that wasn't already here, or wasn't made in factory RHD. It was like that to try and protect the domestic car manufacturing industry, like having huge taxes and tariffs on imported cars. Some conversions done back in the 60's and 70's were better than others, and I have seen some hack jobs over the years that I just wouldn't drive over safety concerns, but this car is not one of those.

Thanks for the updates guys - looks like there's quite a few, relatively speaking, LA cars still out there with at least one missing partial on the original factory sheetmetal.
161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Half a 69 camaro.... on: March 04, 2014, 05:02:49 AM
Yes, it's an original HO car (if you're into that - sorry Gary, couldn't resist Smiley) and yes, does have a right hand mirror. More on the story, with photos, here:

At the time I talked to Shane he was working on a right hand drive 69 Z28. I had a pic of it at one time but as computers go boom sometimes, it went to the electronic dimension in the sky.
Here it is, very nice, unrestored Hugger Orange car - converted to RHD when imported here as a new car, and still remains RHD. Kind of threw me when I first saw the car with the fender pinstripes as well as the Z stripes, but apparently they were added a very long time ago so he left them alone:
164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Half a 69 camaro.... on: March 03, 2014, 03:42:38 AM
Wow...I nearly forgot about Shane. I spoke with him around the time I bought my Z in 2000. Tim, he's not in your neck of the woods is he?
Yes he is Gary - and still in the car business, although last time I caught up with him, he confessed to buying a couple of Mopars recently...... Yikes! He's moving over to the dark side.
Nice story about the double header, enjoyed hearing about it straight from the guy that discovered it.

Reminded me of the "double header" cutaway show car when I first saw the picture!
