Sorry about the quality of the pictures. These are from an aquaintance who is considering this car and is asking me about it's authenticity..
The car can be found here.. http://cars.oodle.com/detail/used-1969-chevrolet-camaro-for-sale/3308423637-cortlandt-manor-ny/
The VIN is said to be 124379N627673. The ...618 block apparently has a March 21 1969 casting date.
I don't yet know the build date and haven't seen the X77 tag yet, but this VIN should make the tag a 1st or 2nd week of April, right?

The engine number is very difficult to read, but the 3 appears to be slightly out of alignment.


The VIN number at the oil pad also looks to not only be out of alignment but the digits appear skewed.


Am I right to be quite suspicious of these stampings and therefore the car?

Pad stamp looks etched rather than gang stamped........
But it could just be the photo......

That VIN seems a bit early for that late a casting date. But I am not an expert on this. I have a 124379N634767 VIN 04C build. I have a VO421DZ block (non- original) And I feel its a bit late for my car.

I can't get the picture of the trim tag to upload due to the stupid format that tis has been sent to me in, but the numbers are as follows..

69 12437 NOR298412
711 71 71
03E X77

Does this match the VIN? Seems a tad early to me.

Tag date is OK. Pad pic is unlegible, so hard to help.
