Contact them with your info and maybe they can look into the history of your request. Normally the turnaround is + - 30 days. Curious though why it's taken this long for you to ask?

It could be your 69 falls within a range of 1969 Camaro (NOR) VINS they lack data for?

I'll try to answer your questions,

1st  Question,

As for how long it took for me to inquire about not getting the request back. I'm a project manager. (I manage to go from one project to another) sorry for sleeping on this, just look at my signature I got a lot of projects. I also built a wedding venue in the last five years.

2nd question,

I will try and see if I can contact them. Anyone have a persons name or number? I would appreciate it.

3rd Question,

My Vin # is N604551  So, I'm assuming they would have some information on it? 


Thanks for your help on this.

Well, I finally broke down and spent the $50. Didn't really think the little bit of info was worth it, but I was WRONG...maybe :) Says the dealer of my car was Fred Gibb Inc, LaHarpe, Illinois !.... However, the dealer code is 226, zone 47. When looking it up on the NCRS Dealer Code Database, it shows Fred Gibb as code 227.... ???

So, what's up with that? Is it a typo, another dealer code for Gibb or different dealer??

The NCRS data comes from old punched cards...  When I first got mine, it had the wrong data on it.   I reported what I knew of my car's origina, and they rechecked the data.   When I got the results it was corrected and reported to me that the first error was due to damage on the punch card.

Gary, how did you contact NCRS to report the error? I replied to the shipping notification I received by e-mail. That was 2 days ago and haven't got a response. Was just now looking at the origin of the e-mail, which is "no reply@chevymuscledocs.com"....so maybe they didn't get my e-mail?

I went to ncrs.org to find some contact info. We'll see if that works...The ChevyMuscleDocs site has zero contact info, other than placing an order!

As of today, dealer code 226 (zone 47) has been accepted as Fred Gibb Chevrolet Inc.

 So there's my contribution... 8) lol

Great service, only spent 50.00 to confirm the dealers packet in my glove box as genuine and real. Defunct Chevy dealership in ChicagoLand, Elmhurst, Illinois. Since found the original owner and shocked to find out what he paid  for it! Good bit more than what a 69 SS 396 L78, 4-speed would have sold for in 1969.

Heres my recent story that occurred in June of 2023. PO ordered an NCRS report on my car and it came back as being delivered to Jackshaw Chevrolet Euclid Ohio. PO wouldn't provide me with the original NCRS report so I ordered another one. Low and behold, the new report came back stating my car was delivered to Marsh Hallman Chevrolet, Albany NY. I called Marylyn at NCRS and she confirmed on the phone that the first report was incorrect and that Marsh Hallman was in fact the correct landing zone for my car. She said the records were on microfiche and she was looking at mine as we were talking on phone.

IMHO it would be a good idea to call and confirm the report is correct.

Similar story. Well before this service was provided for $50 for anyone who wanted the info, law enforcement could run your VIN through the NICB (National Insurance Crime Bureau) and find out the original dealer info. I had a friend who knew a policeman who would do this for him. He had my VIN run and came back with Emerson Chevrolet in New Hampshire as the original dealer. Made sense since I am in RI, the car was traded in to Scuncio Chevrolet in RI, by a military man stationed in CT.

Because I never got any actual paperwork or documentation from that NICB report, when these  ChevyMuscleDocs services became available to the public, I sent in my $50 and waited. Sure enough, that report stated my car was originally sold out of The Varnell Chevrolet Company in Tracy City Tennessee. And with some help from a friendly retired private investigator who saw my Craigslist "wanted" ad I had posted in TN, looking for the original owner or info regarding the dealer and my car, he thought he knew the car, and the right people,.....and sure enough, he got me into contact with the original owner.
