The A pillar trim needs to be installed first along with the clips that hold the windshield trim (left, right & top). These are screwed in beforehand as once the windshield is installed you can't access the screws. The header pieces(on top) can go in later.

I have an 05A 69 Norwood car.
NCRS Ship Date is 05/01/1969.
Shipper Date is 05/02/69. On this document the Date of Execution is 05/05/69.
I also have the dealers "New Car Record" (inventory). It shows a Date Received as 05/05/69. Location is  Marion VA. (Western end of state, so not too far from Norwood OH.
Date Sold was 07/08/69. So it was a dealer order car, not a customer order.

I post every once in a while trying to assist members. If anyone received a data report listing dealer zone and code and no dealer name. Let me know and Iíll check my database to see if I can assist.

Having a conversation with NCRS (Muscle Car Docs) about a disputed Ship to dealer. The report they sent me says my car was shipped to Warnock Chevrolet Dealer 332 Zone 02 on April 28,1969. This is for a 69 Indy Pacecar. It was sold from Marvin Chevrolet in Cheshire CT in September 1969. I know...maybe a dealer transfer. I have paperwork for the car (original bill of sale, new car title application, etc).

Here's what is confusing me. I if I go on the NCRS search engine and search Warnock it comes back with 3 references all zone 02, but two are Dealer 332 and one is 329. all from the same source in 1994 and 1995, No actual GM document referenced.
If I search Marvin Chevrolet it returns with Zone 2, Dealer 332. Hummm. How could they both be 332 at the same point in time?
So on to Marvin Chevrolet advertises in the local newspapers around Connecticut between January 22, 1968. The final was March 3, 1972. At that point it became Terry Chevrolet.
On to Warnock Chevrolet in Morristown NJ. The Secretary of State Business Division of Revenue shows incorporation on September 27, 1984. The advertisements start October 16, 1985. The dealership was sold in 2011. I could find no information that Warnock existed in 1969.
Could you or someone confirm if any information exists to confirm both dealers numbers?
Thanks a bunch in advance,

Amazing that all the paperwork has remained with the car over all these years and through all the owners. Not to mention that you've been in contact with all the previous owners. We'd love to hear the whole story on it.
When I bought the car (1983) it had no paperwork. Just the title from the 6th owner. It took me a couple of years (pre internet and pre privacy laws) to get it all.

 Byron, Be happy to do that. Thanks for offering. Iíve always knew that this car was somewhat special, therefore Iíve always hesitated to publish it. I tend to be somewhat secretive about the car. I drive it, but never park it without my eyes on it.
I suppose youíd like to add it to the database? If so, who do I send the files to?
Back to welding on the z11.
Thanks again,

Did he find any other shipper sheets?
Thanks James. Yup that's mine. I've been on here for years learning. I appreciate the info you guys have accumulated.
I've owned this car for 36+ years. I'm the 7th owner. I have spoken on the phone to or met every owner. Even the original dealership owner who gave me access to the paperwork. This was way back in the 80's before every thing got shut down for privacy laws. I've got the Shipper, Original Bill of Sale, and the page from the dealer inventory book, showing when it was shipped and when he received it. I also have a copy of every title for the car and old pictures from some of the previous owners.
Details of the car are basically a X22 O5A 718 Norwood built. L78 M21 BU.
I've been thinking about telling it's story here for years, but I get too busy in the garage. It's a long story just from my ownership of 36 years alone. The story of tracking the original owner and paperwork took years, (before the internet).
If you guy are interested. I'll try to tell it. I get busy as I'm doing a Z11 right now.

Iím currently restoring a 69 Z11. This is a one owner car. Iíve known the car for many years. I knew the owner and bought it from the owners daughter after he passed. It is original drive train and came with documents.

The rear seat area has a XO or a XD on the rear seat bulk head. I showed it to James (firstgenaddict) today. He suggested I post it here. So what is it? I thought it maybe X = houndstooth O = Orange.
What does every one think? Just wondering.
Thanks in advance. Rich

Decoding/Numbers / Another 5OR not NOR Trim Tag
« on: July 25, 2019, 09:16:55 PM »
I'm working on this car in my shopped spotted this trim tag. I bought me off guard, it has 5OR where normally NOR would be. as you can see its a 69 coupe, Hugger Orange, Std Blk interior. Late build 09D car. X11 code. With VIN 9N688113. I saw one other post here but have never see a tag like this. Thoughts? was this a late production phenomenon when the Fisher BDY numbers got reset?
Appreciate the comments,

Wow! What a time machine. Don't you wish you could tell those guys to "just leave the build sheet in the glove box please"? Having started working in the Tool & Die industry back in 1975 I was reminded how far we came 42 years later when I retired. Think of all of the advancements in computer technology with CAD, CNC, FEA and 3D Printing. I saw the transformation and it makes me appreciate what these guys at Fisher went though in creating our cars.

Camaro-wise I did design & engineer a plastic injection mold for the 1977 Z28 (no slash) grille emblem. It was late 1975 or early 1976. I can't remember at the moment. I was so excited because the Z/28 was coming back! I had a 74 Z28 at the time. Thinking it was the last of them. I begged my boss for the job to do the design work on the injection mold. Our job number was 1492.  The GM drawing was a full scale Mylar with no dimensions on it, So you had to use a vernier caliper to measure and add a shrinkage factor for the steel mold. That way the plastic would cool to the specified shape and dimensions after ejection from the mold. This was back before computers where widely used. We used drafting boards back then and had just gotten desktop scientific calculators. Finally we were able to park the slide rules and trigonometry books.

Cool video. Thanks for sharing,
PS...I traded the 74 for a 78 Z28 when they came out (4-speed, no AC of course)
