William makes a good point about 'never saying 'never''...  but one could say that about anything we discuss on here...

For my 2 cents worth, I'd have to agree with Steve (PaceMe)... :)

Thanks for the replies.

Here is a pic of the tag. The paint is gone from the tag and all that is left are the stamped numbers.

Car was built the first week of April. Julian date on trans tag indicates March that an acceptable date range for an 04A build date?

The second digit of the year on the tag is obscured by scuff marks that's why I really wanted to find the VIN for proof of originality. Based on the other info on the tag it looks like the original trans. It's a '67 SS/RS L35 convertible. I plan to sell the car soon and I need proof that it is a numbers matching car.

So far it's a numbers matching car except for the engine block. The trans is the only remaining question left. I cant see if the stamped VIN is somewhere on top of the bellhousing. I plan on buying one of those inexpensive borescopes to get a better look.

Here's a Day 1 takeoff spare that was reportedly removed from the trunk of a 69 Z/28 that got a mag wheel change when brand new. The originals went home with the owner and were secured away in the basement until I got this wheel earlier this year. It's a factory spare dated K-1-9-4-18 and in mint untouched original condition. Obviously it was grey and not painted like the other wheels off the car?

A couple of observations looking at the grey painted spare pictured. I can't see how a tire was ever mounted on it (no bead mark)and there are no jack base plate marks, chip paint or abrasions when it was secured in the trunk. Also no balance/ run-out bead/marking on the rim. Certainly we've learned anything is possible....

Looked all over the original TH400 in my 04A '67 and cannot find the VIN stamp.

I did read that all '67 TH400's were not stamped. Was this relatively common that year?
  I'm in the same boat....I can't find the VIN on my original 04B LOS L35/TH400 Camaro. I'm beginning to suspect that not all were stamped.
The tag on the passenger side is correct and the date stamped puts it in the correct range. It's still in the car and I have used a mirror to locate it but no luck so far.

Check the areas where Paul said. 

If you still canít find one, post a pic of the tag on the passenger side. We may be able to determine if itís the original one for your car via that tag. For an example, go to this link and scroll down a bit.

Partial VINs were mainly only on SS and Z28 Camaros in 1967. They were required by 1968. See this link.
Several years ago the stars aligned and I was helping two buds with BB power steering cars. The pics are from one of the few Yenkos built with ps.
I'm on a mission to restore my 1969 Z10 back to original specs so i pulled the engine had it rebuilt i have everything restored from carburetor to water pump all # matching but i cant find what is truly a 1969 BB P/S PUMP with correct reservoir seems everyone with the line coming out the bottom of the reservoir says its a Camaro /Chevelle BB P/S PUMP '
I've read threads saying in JM camaro fact book shows pictures  but i have the 3rd edition and it has no pictures so i emailed JM and he said he has no pictures of a 1969 Camaro BB power steering pump.
so please if anyone has pictures of an original not some reman or repop please let me know .Thank you
