Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 body tag vs vin tag
« Last post by Mi67RS on May 20, 2017, 09:20:22 PM »
thank you, The VIN reads 124377L and the trim tag is 67-12637 LOS. So they match? Also my trim tag has no Drive-line (2) code, what would have been the engine trans combination? it appears to have a column manual shift, I remember in my younger years removing the trim on the steering column and replacing it with one that didn't have the shifter lever boss on it. It had a floor shift manual trans in when purchased. The rear axle has the round radius rod. unfortunately the original engine and trans are long gone.

The Trim tag body number was assigned when the body was built in the Fisher Body side of the plant and the VIN was assigned when the body was delivered to the Chevrolet side of the plant and released for final assembly.  So the two numbers never matched.  The problem that will arise with the tags pertains to the dates on the tags.

Decoding/Numbers / 1967 body tag vs vin tag
« Last post by Mi67RS on May 20, 2017, 06:02:03 PM »
   Hello all, new to this site so please excuse any question that I ask if it has already been addressed. please direct me to previous post with the answer I seek.

    I have owned my 1967 Camaro sense late 70's not sure exactly when I bought it, I repainted it while still in high school. Almost before the paint was dry i clipped a retaining wall of a parking lot and dented the passengers front fender, this was so traumatic to me that I parked the car and didn't drive it for a long time. When I did face my daemons and start to drive the car again it was more then I could handle, driving such a sweet car with a damaged front end. So I parked it in the Garage and proceeded to pull the front end off, unfortunately did stop with just the front clip. Well time, kids, and life got in the way and the car sat in my mother garage for close to 25 years. Personal reasons and the purchase of a new house allowed me to more the car to its current location where it has been sitting again almost 10 years. In that time I have been purchasing parts to put the car back together. All that is left is a bell housing and drive shaft.

   Blah, Blah, Blah. Anyway back to my question, and hopefully the answer doesn't crush my expectations. Recently I found decoding sites and ran the trim tag and VIN tag. My concern is the body number code on the trim tag does not match the serial number of the VIN tag. Please tell me this is normal and that nothing fishy is going on. The hidden codes stamped on the body under the cowl and near the blower motor match the VIN tag, so i'm sure the VIN tag is correct to the car. The car is titled in my name as it has been sense I purchased it. Please help. 

   IF it helps the paint code on the trim tag is correct to the original color (Marina Blue). And the year and plant codes of both the VIN and trim tags match.

Thanks

are there any proven 283 in Camaro's other than exports?

No, only Swiss built cars. More info HERE.

Any chance that this motor was the original?

No, V0329GO is for a 283/195 with Powerglide from a 1967 full size car. Yours was assembled on March 29th, 1967. (That web site has a lot of incorrect information regarding the Camaro engine applications!)

also what does that A.I.R. stand for?

Air Injection Reactor

What's your VIN and can you post a picture of your trim tag?

The car was purchased used in the 80's from California and has a blue california plate in the trunk date 1970. So the smog pump makes lots of sense. I have sent the money in to get the original dealer info that is now offered- waiting for that answer.  As to the 283 I had decided that it was not original but then i see a few odd things that make me wonder. perhaps someone else will know something. thanks for the quick reply!

General Discussion / tachometer wiring 67
« Last post by mike willett on May 20, 2017, 05:31:37 PM »
I have a 67 , it had a factory tach that had the guts removed before i got the car- so not sure if it had a factory tach or not.  i have a newer electronic dist with a tach output terminal that is not connected . I installed a new reproduction factory tach. it shows the rpm when cranking and drops to 0 as soon as it starts. the back of the tach is attached to the printed circuit only. Can i pick up the factory wiring and install it to that tach terminal?
