Very nice.

What always stands out to me whenever I see a CHP Certification, is the statement:
"According to our data base and historical Chevrolet records, this car is an original <insert model> "
I guess only Jerry can confirm, and would not do that for obvious reasons, but since the only known GM records amount to the shipper info (not yet available via the NCRS), and unless the car has previously been inspected and certified by him (in which case, why re-appraise it?), what does the statement really mean?

I can tell you we have moved the target roll out date to May 1st.
Thanks Roy - will be waiting in anticipation like a kid on Christmas Eve!

Read elsewhere that this service has been delayed from mid-April until July - can anyone involved with NCRS confirm?

Great, thanks again as always John! Now I'll have to try and decipher the crayon markings.

Kurt, what's your opinion on the engine stamp?
VIN: 124379L528742
Paul
Yes, I'd like to hear Kurt's opinion on that one; the VIN is the closest I've yet seen to my own LA car's.

Interesting! I was cleaning up a Flint CE block recently and noticed yellow grease pencil marks on one side (which I have left undisturbed); Would the same process as JohnZ described have applied equally to a CE assembly as a production engine?

Tim,
Are those dried paint runs at the lowest points I see?
Mike
Mike, those dark areas are just local wet spots; it had been raining before I took the tank outside to take the picture, and the bottom edge got damp when I put it down to turn over. There is a couple of minor paint runs, but they don't show up in the picture.

Door panels have ink date stamps on the inside of the panels
Here's an example, this one from an August of 1969 car:

I parted out an 01B of 1969 Los Angeles car late last year and the underside of the gas tank is painted black; will take and post some pictures tomorrow.
Here's a picture of that tank, you can see where there is no paint where the tank straps were. This is not undercoating. The tank was original to the car:

Yep, they do seem to be unnecessarily strict in SA on things that really shouldn't matter....

Matt, whereabouts in Aus are you?
164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Van Nuys Hidden Partial VIN on: March 20, 2014, 02:47:27 AM
My 11C big block AC car does not have the vin at the ac hole. Does have the cowl top one.
Thanks! Is it a VN/LOS or NOR car?

John and Mike, thanks for the info, much appreciated. Yes, has one hole in the bracket.
