Decoding/Numbers / Help Identifying a 67
« Last post by ksuhwail on June 28, 2016, 05:19:02 PM »
Gents, I think I need some help.

I am the new owner of a 67 Camaro and have been pouring over this site trying to find out exactly what type of car I actually have. I am having trouble identifying if this car is actually an SS350 or not.

The car has all the obvious SS features (Proper badges, hood, steering wheel...)

The previous owner, my father-in-law, swears that it is but I'm not quite convinced.  ;D

Here is the info I have...

Door Jamb VIN: 124377N123873
Body Tag: See Attached Image
Engine Info: Partial VIN 10D153196 & Engine ID V0220CNR

After some research, I have deduced the motor is from a 1970 Chevy Caprice. Considering the car currently has a 3-speed auto, I'm betting the transmission also came from that Caprice.

Here is the rub though, the body tag doesn't have the 4P option code but was made in October of 66. I read on this site that 67s from Norwood prior to October may be an SS without this code but I'm not sure exactly when this change over occurred.

I think this car came with a 327 out of the factory.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks guys!

My sports ignorance flag is probably going to show now, but I've always leaned more towards Syracuse is it? the "Orangemen"

Auburn and Florida both use 'orange and blue'....  different shades though...   :)

I almost *always* paint my cars their original colors, BUT... for my '57 Nomad I'm considering a change to either 'matador red'... or  ' Imperial Ivory'...  (that might give you a clue as to my team preferences, although that was not a consideration in my color choices).. :)

You can't say f*Rd here! My dad painted his 57 retractable gm Hawaiian blue, looks the same as my buddies 72 chevy truck. Really upset my buddy when I told him his truck was ford color

Is your 68 a van Nuys car?

Gary, Would that make you a Tennesse fan than Gary? (BTW I thought his car looked more like florida colors)

Using that logic, Would I be a Crimson tide fan? Cook would be a Michigan state fan maybe, or with his blue car a Duke fan?

You could have some fun with that... :)

Here's a pic of the one I saw very close to yours. Don't know where I got the pic.

Thanks Jimmy! I was told by 2 people that this color combo was only produced in Z's. Do you think there's any truth to that?

I found the build sheet in my plain Jane 68 convertible and it was cordovan maroon with deluxe parchment interior and white convertible top which is similar color combo. I repainted it Ford dark toreador red and re-upholstered deluxe parchment interior and white top almost the same as the day it was new.

ExRacer:    Are you an Auburn grad or fan?  :)
lol- no, not much of a sports fan. I've always liked bright colors though, especially on cars. Blue was my original favorite, and then I switched to orange around 1990 or so. My first car, that I paid for with my own money was a 1969 Camaro standard coupe that I bought in 1986 for $400.00. Hotrod around that time had a "how to paint your own car" series and they listed some easy straight colors that were good for first time painters. The one I fell in love with was... Ford Grabber Blue, so that was what I painted my first 69. I was going to paint my current project grabber blue again because I absolutely love the color. Petty Blue or even Big Bad Blue would have worked too- but they were all stinkin' expensive (at lleast for my budget), so the paint store had this fleet orange color for cheap, so I went with that. But since I love blue too, I went ahead and did the lettering etc in blue.
probably more than you wanted to, but there you have it.

No problem..    we like the anecdotes and stories.. :)   ..  and your story is lots better than admitting to being an AU fan..  :)    j/K...
