Got a reply back on my order 1096 today, saying no information on VIN 124677L117xxx  :(  Anyone else have a problem with early 67 LOS documents?

Mine isn't that early (12437L139xxx) but did not have a problem.

So I guess if you have a car sent to a Zone office, you are done. No way to find out anything correct??
Dealer 0 Zone 30.

It would appear that we're SOL. :(

Not necessarily guys, contact the current zone office, see who was the zone manager or his assistant try to contact one of them. Maybe you have Mr. Perkin's Camaro, or Mr. Campbell's Camaro, or the Camaro that went to the New York Worlds Fair, if you just quit you won't find out anything for sure.

How would you go about contacting the current Zone office, is this public info?

Sorry for the typo.  It is a '67.  That would be 124377L139xxx

Boy I'm a little behind on here.   Took a while reading through this thread with high hopes but I see I'm still one of the unlucky ones  on 578154

Got my Pace Car dealer info today - Courtesy Chevrolet, Houston, TX Dlr. 149, Zone 30. When I bought the car in W. TN, the owner stated that the car was a Western car all it's life (shows it), still had Nevada plates on it. Supposedly owned by an AA pilot based out of Dallas.

Now, if we could only get the early info my small collection would be covered -

Regards,
Steve

Had 2 close ones in my list.  35-164 was Irwin Chevrolet, Passaic NJ and 35-167 was June Chevrolet in Metuchen NJ.  It's possible that June changed dealer numbers by one.  If not then your dealer was alphabetically between these two.

Thank you very much Warren.  Is your list from the 1969 era?  Maybe I can still find a list with 166 on it.

I've been hoping to finally get this info for years, I guess any info would have been cool, but this was awesome and helps in possibly tracking down more info.  Here is what I got:  Production date was 07/02/1969, dealer code 885 in zone 5, dealer was Van Chevrolet, Shawnee Mission, Kansas.  I figured my car must have been one of the last June cars since my trim tag says 06A but based on my VIN being N6647XX.  Any Kansas folks know this dealer?  My car is a 1969 Cortez Silver Z/28, X33D80 flat hood car, original motor and trans, I've had it since 2006 so I figure I am about half way through the restoration :-)

When I joined the Camaro Club of KC back in 1990, Van Chevrolet was our sponsor. Somewhere in I believe 92, Van became Superior Chevrolet. Dealership is now  Rick Hendrick Chevrolet. Have several  friends that bought cars from Van in the late 70's and early 80's. I'll check to see what they may have hanging in their garage.
