The body number is way off others of the same time frame, Z28's included by almost 10K cars, the build date is correct for the VIN.  There must have been something on this car that required holding up the build for almost 2 weeks from similar cars ordered at the same time.

I have an 09E Norwood Camaro Z28 which is also yellow with the 714 interior and also a black vinyl top. It is an X33 D80 car.
My body number is 119445. In September of 69 the week of 09E consisted of only 2 days, Monday the 29th and Tuesday the 30th.
Would seem like one of the bodies is out of sequence a bit. Doubt they could build 1900 cars in 2 days.

Most 09D built cars body numbers  (order umbers) are way higher than either of this camaros, or yours.  Maybe it was the 714 interior?  /they built 951 cars a day so yes they could built 1900 cars in two days, but 69's were not built in body number order, they were built in VIN order.

It's clearly the interior that held up those orders. I see others nearby that are the same way.
