1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help ! 69 without a protectoplate on: January 07, 2014, 06:20:37 AM
Dear ZLP,
Thanks for this. The 'new'  partial VIN I quoted above is indeed one of the identical pair of stampings on the bulkhead. The dashtop VIN is as per previous older posts.

There's no sign of oddball welding anywhere else on the structure, so my surmise is that this is one complete coupe chassis with a possible dash change  -  for whatever reason (and as you say  -  could be a can of worms). The car certainly left the USA in 1993 and was sold on in the UK in 1994.

Anyway, thanks for your speedy reply. I live in West London about 6 miles from Hammersmith/Shepherds Bush. Great place and very lively socially  -  I organise a monthly London race-drivers meeting at a pub less than a mile from there. What business were you in over here ?
Best regards,
Nick

Hi !
Nick from London, England posting again. And I hope you guys aren't too badly frozen at the moment...

Well, a mystery that I hope Forum members can help with.

In previous posts, I quoted a VIN as taken from the plate on the top of the dash on my '69.

However, during the Winter racing season rebuild, we took the entire front clip off and I was able to see two VIN stampings on the bulkhead.

The car's VIN is actually "9N 527946"  !!

For some reason I cannot find the Forum document decoding this number, so can I ask a Forumist to help  ?

It looks as though the dash was replaced at some time about 20/25 years ago probably around the time it was imported from the USA to GB.

Is this number on anyone's database and is anything known ?
Thanks,
Nick

Ooops ! yes, I mistranscribed the VIN -   one '1' too many. You are right, it must be the trim or cowl tag that I am looking for. It is a Norwood-build car.

The problem is that there are no rivetted plates left on the body  -  just the VIN number on the dash-top inside the windscreen. So I am trying to find any database that might link the VIN to further info. I will take 69Z28's advice and read the link he sent me.
Ko-lek-tor -  just about everything got repainted when the car was race-prepared in 1999/2000, so no luck with the rear-seat bulkhead.
I will post photos when I get down to the car again,
Thank you all for your speedy help and advice and to anyone else who sees this -  I am grateful for any info ...
Yrs
Nick

Hello, gents,
I have just discovered the Forum and now asking for your help.

I have a '69 with the VIN   124379N651 1234, which has lost its protectoplate. Can anyone help with further info on original body color etc ?

This coupe was imported to the UK in 1993, very probably a 396 (?SS)  -  no idea where it came from in the USA. Now fitted with a 350 and specced for a 'standard equipment' UK historic race series. I have been racing it for 18 months around Gt Britain.

Any help or leads you can give will be much appreciated. I know very little about Camaros, and trying to learn fast.
Thanks
Nick Savage
