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

5/1/1968         Dealer code 1   zone 21       Overseas Distribution Division--Export

#1 owner ordered while in Vietnam ,came home and picked the car up in Michigan.

Giving him a call tomorrow to find out the dealership name , not much in NCRS under code 1  zone 21 , will be able to add to the data base.

I'm taking some time off next week ,getting him over here to have a few beers see if he has any old pics.

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.

anyone have contact info for the Houston Zone Office? Roy, you mentioned two men, who are they? (just names as example or people who owned dealerships, worked in that Zone Office,  etc?)  I don't know what I don't know..lol Thanks

Called Knapp Chevrolet in Houston.
The guy there told me that cars sent to the Zone office was ordered by an employee to drive as a company car then sold to dealer. Zone offices closed in early 80's.
So least I know something. lol 
If you know someone in Houston that knows someone that knew someone back in the day and worked at the Zone office, please let me know.

Thanks

The dealer was Evans Chevrolet Inc. Bluefield W Va..I check on the web and found nothing on them. So, I'm assuming they are out of business or has been sold..I was told by a couple of people that had previously owned the car that it was sold new in NC.   I went by the DMV today and picked up the form to do a complete title search to see where it was sold and to whom.

Hello everyone!!!!   Just received my dealer info and zone office number.   Also included was the build date of my 1969 Camaro RS/SS.  My cowl tag shows car was built "02D".
Per the letter from NCRS, car was built 3-10-69.   Would this "gap" in time be the time it took for someone back in the day to enter this info once the car was actually built???
Roy, please feel free to pipe in on this info if you can.  Thanks for all you have done here for everyone.    Don

JohnZ answered my question about this over on camaros.net  Here is his exact quote: "the cowl tag date is the WEEK during which the body started being welded together in the Body Shop, and the GM production date on the shipping report letter is the DAY the completed, finished car was produced off the end of the Final Line."
