Welcome to a great site and glad to have another Cortez Silver Z owner on the board. I'm Gary, nice to meet you. Just so others won't jump on you for the misspelling. CAMARO, not CAMERO. Another Cortez Silver Z. They are popping up all over the place. Do you have any other pics of it yet as is? Would love to see how it looks before you get into it.
From what I can see from the tag, it is the narrow tag, 09B second week of September, pre-X codes. From your VIN it is really early in production so all your components will be 68 dated, probably July, August, September? Some one will most likely confirm that. Your engine suffix V0838DZ has been discussed here I think or on Team Camaro. V for Flint, 08 for August, 38 for the day, but of course august only had 31 days, and DZ is the 302 engine for 69. I wonder who owns the closest date to production start up? I'm wondering if you do. Pretty cool.
