Jimmy, I'll let Kurt answer this one, but the OP didn't say it was 10A. Jonesy did!!

Ed, I understand the body numbers can vary widely. But how can a car with a 10A Tag have a VIN corresponding to VIN's from the 09A time frame? VIN 505520 is only the 5,520th Camaro thru the wall from Fisher to Chevrolet? By the end of Sep looks like 13,00 units or so were built or in production. It looks to me like the VIN precedes the Trim Tag?? Which I know it cannot.

The body number has nothing to do with when a car was scheduled/built. It was generated when Central Office confirmed [not received] a dealer order. VINs were sequentially assigned.

The date on the tag reflects the release of the order at Fisher Body. Body production usually, but not always, began shortly thereafter.

The best example of this are ZL1s #1 & #2. Orders 222002 & 222003 were confirmed on or about December 6, 1968. "Normal" production scheduling would have planned them for the first or second week January 1969, too late to prep for the AHRA season opener in PHX. N569358 & N569359 were expedited and final assembled December 30, 1968. 222001/N609238 was final assembled on or about Thursday March 6, 1969.

There are too many factors involved to speculate about production priority.

All the NBR tags are in the 09A week not the 10A week, there are roughly 1500 of them between 5048XX (maybe slightly lower) and 5062XX from tag images I have.

I think the data is a typo too. It's missing the 9.

Has there been any '5OR' NOR tags?
I have one for a 69 Firebird but is a 9D date.

They found the 'O' but lost the 'N'

Welcome John!

Yes, there are 5OR tags, built in late 69 production.

Some tag errors appear on 100's of cars, some on only one.

 I assume there were more than one addressographs running at any time to account for some with and some without mistamps?

The basic info on the tags were pre printed before they arrived at the plants.  Things preprinted were items like the NOR PNT, BDY the big disclaimer on the bottom of the 69 tags, so if someone in the supply chain made a mistake, like printing NBR on the tag it carried thru all the tags in that order.  Maybe the order was for 1000 tags, 5000, or 10000 at a time, (roughly 1, 5 or 10 days production).  The tags themselves got fed into the addressographs at the assembly and all the car specific info got added to the tags.  If no one at the plant noticed the typos, they continued until the next batch of tags were received and put into the addressographs.
