Hello everyone!!!!   Just received my dealer info and zone office number.   Also included was the build date of my 1969 Camaro RS/SS.  My cowl tag shows car was built "02D".
Per the letter from NCRS, car was built 3-10-69.   Would this "gap" in time be the time it took for someone back in the day to enter this info once the car was actually built???
Roy, please feel free to pipe in on this info if you can.  Thanks for all you have done here for everyone.    Don

The date will coincide with the month on your P.O.P

Feb,1969   plant GAD....according to chart. Check on the Mustang forums ( Shelby) Lots of info(links) on some threads there. Dig deep enough and you'll  find what you are looking for.Started with a guy wanting to verify the spare he had in the trunk. Unless pure coincidence, the numbers on my tires (5) coincide with the chart and translate to the proper time frame ( build date). Sorry can't be more help Bryan ,one of many numbers, and not a lot about it. Did my reading last year around this time, found what I was looking for and moved on. Shame about the tires, they were severely abused(hole shots) very early in the history of the car and used solely for winter storage. Most likely were off the car by 69. Side walls show no dry rot. In 90 I wanted to put the Ralleys back on and had new tires mounted, decided to keep them.

5/1/1968         Dealer code 1   zone 21       Overseas Distribution Division--Export

#1 owner ordered while in Vietnam ,came home and picked the car up in Michigan.

Giving him a call tomorrow to find out the dealership name , not much in NCRS under code 1  zone 21 , will be able to add to the data base.

I'm taking some time off next week ,getting him over here to have a few beers see if he has any old pics.

Pre 70 OE's should be in the above 7 digit format.

Some good readings concerning these era tires on the Shelby forum ,search around a bit. I have not read in depth on the subject, just enough to decipher year and month for my tires, which I already knew were original to the car.

This being somewhat rare, I will in the near future post better images of all 5.

Per P.O.P and NCRS production date on my Z  was May 1, as I began documenting all my date codes I have been somewhat surprised how close to production the parts match eg; tires April, Engine 4/23   Rear end 4/24  Trans 3/21  etc...

At one time they built E250's and Thunderbirds in my home town (literally the buildings were sold for scrap price a few years ago ,sad) As a kid I would see rail cars and semi's of parts being delivered. Huge rows of stacked parts on pallets were in and outside the plant ( south side) at the end (north side) a constant flow of cars would cross over a bridge and be parked awaiting shipment near the lake. Really have to appreciate on a grand scale how production remained in sync....without cell phones and the internet. ( They also built ships ,cranes, electrical parts. Manufactured Steel and seamless pipe) Around 500 manufacturing jobs remain in a city of 68,000 now. Seamless pipe.

Wont be able to get to my laptop until tomorrow....however seems like we had this conservation last year around this time. I sent all 5 tires pics to Ed B (among other #s) for the data base. Really for this purpose.

Perhaps if he gets a chance he can post them ,I have no problem with that. If not, I'll re size them and get them posted tomorrow. If you do a little searching on this site Bryan, there is posts how to decipher ,going to see if I can't dig that up--steve.
