X codes did not show up until Dec? 1968 for the 69 model year. My former 69 rs/ss vert had no X code but with a n509386 vin it was a sept 68 build PRE X code. Sept 69 builds would have a vin in the high 600,000 range or low 700,000 range I believe without looking it up.

You deserve it Rick, what goes around comes around!
  Along with Ron having the original 327 block (I have the heads on the 350 in it now) I found out It has a GM cowl hood (yeah I checked out how to tell the diff) A PY 12 bolt out of a 68 Camaro original 256 gear now a 355 gear. Something I already knew but Ron confirmed that the fold down rear seat is not original

 Just to keep things in the good news spirit and all round Camaro/Chevy nice guys. This week I was also in contact with a former owner(2 of them ago) who built my current ride a 67 rs. I already had his contact info that was passed along by the previous owner. After a pleasant phone conversation I told him that I was going to be in his area on Sat. and would he mind if I dropped in. He said not a problem. We arrive and he has ready for me some touch up paint, the 67 AIM some after market rs floor mats. We yapped about my car and his current projects a 57 belair, 69&66 corvette. He then invited my wife and I inside to watch a slideshow of my car when he first bought it (it looked a lot different) then offered me the original short block for my car at a very reasonable price. I was blown away by the generosity of this gentleman. Mr. Ron Dodds of Arva  Ontario. Thanks Ron for the pics !!!

 I think with all the information out there such as the orphan section here it would be easy to get more motors and such back together with their cars. But how many of us take the time to get interested in the history and stories of our cars? For every member here their must be 20 who are oblivious or plain just don't care or believe the story that the car they bought is matching #'s.Its not until that one owner that buys something and takes that keen interest in searching the history that things get back together.

 The guy I bought my 67 rs from was offered the original 327, power glide, console and shifter and didn't want them.When I called the guy this week who had sold him the car. He was flabbergasted he didn't want them. Sold all that stuff within a week of selling the car.Good news is he has a can paint for me to touch up some stone chips.

  Well there is more to the story, some twists and turns and some fibs. mostly surrounding the salesman who owned the car in the early 70's  owned it again in the 80's and sold it in 2001. He made something as simple as not giving me a name last year into a year long frustrating search. Most of the info I thought I knew when I bought it was wrong and most of the info he gave the guy he sold it to in 2001 was wrong.
    On the other hand tomorrow I am meeting the former owner of my 67 rs. He is not who I bought the car from but the owner before and the one who did the body work and paint. Had a great phone conversation And I have to be near his hometown anyway. It always should be so easy !
