I will have to say that the production figures that Gary has been using from the CRG calculations have to be pretty close to correct.  Gary figured the production of my 69 05A Z/28 while we were sitting in the motel room at Frederick this year.  Gary came up with May 7th (127th day), using the 629 car a day figure.  I knew that this figure was pretty close as I had an agent do the dealer and production search back in the 90's, and it came back as shipped May 8th.  I just got my NCRS search back and it said the production date was May 7th!!, and was sent to C. D. King Chevrolet.  It appears this method is pretty close, as it has been double checked twice.  KERR's car was done using the same method.

So did you buy Gary a beer for that calculation?   Cheesy
Gary doesn't provide a letter, but his services are affordable... Cheesy

Hello All, I was just reading some posting on the Team Camaro site about 1 gen documents available ChevyMuscleCars.    I also notice a note: 1969 Camaro 9N508855 to 9N587275 missing data.  
Does anyone know if this problem has been resolved?   I purchased my car new and I never kept any documents in 1969.   I know my selling dealer but would like any other data available.  
Can this still be searched?

 All you will get for your money is an official looking document stating the car's born on date and the dealer and zone number it was shipped to. Nothing else is included.
No model info or anything along those line of identification.
  If you know the dealers name already then you will have the info you need. If the dealer is still in business and has the paperwork then you are way ahead most of us.
To my knowledge there is still a gap for '69 models.

Knowing the official production date along with a document that states the original dealer is a plus for any Camaro owner I would think.

And the official production date is lots more realistic in figuring validity of production dates on the component parts than using the 'planned/projected production week'...    e.g.  '06A'   this is only the projected period they expect car to be produced at time or order... and there can be differences, from several days to significant' delays.

Thanks Guys,  Like Bullit said, any information may be worth the $$.   I worked at my home town dealership, I was even called during the holidays to accept a load of cars during Thanksgiving  holidays.  WoW, when I saw the green Z, I knew who ordered that.   My sales manager and I sat down and ordered the car so I knew what it had.
My old dealership has closed , being a small town dealer , all local business went to the next larger city 20 miles away.  

I think any information would be worth it to me, so I can pass on to my son and grandson.     I know the dealer and we were in the Houston zone.   The car is a non X code Z car, 12A .  
But my question was , on this site there was a note : "1969 Camaro 9N508855 to 9N587275 data missing ", I am 9N554389 , so if someone can tell me that the data exists,  I will order.  

Thanks again,  I don't normally log into this site as I hang out at TC, but I may come back over just because I now have all the time in the world.   I retired after 35 years in the oil patch.  

Well Kurt S  just answered my question, data for those vin's  above are still missing.  So end of road.

Yes,  ordered the car, dated my wife, married my wife, had two kids (not in it or result of) .  It was the only car we had very early on.  My wife drove this car while she was carrying my son.  
So in very south Texas, near the border, near south padre island, most everyone my age , knows this car.   This was a  base Z, no console, gauges etc but I added the cowl hood later.  
 While wife was carrying son, I put a Frigaking underdash in the car , to make her trips easier.  I was not until about 15 years ago, I went with a Vintage unit.  

I just wish I would have saved receipts and stuff.   All I could think of , was to look for a mustang to smoke.   I still have my over counter green page Special Equiptment parts book.  I was a counter man, part manager, service manager/writer/ warranty clerk for long while before going to Amoco.   Time flies when you are having fun.  
I do have my owners manual and my first Delco R-59 warranty punch card. It was red.

if you know the dealer who delivered it, the only other piece of information you'd get would be production date, and that can be figured very closely (with 1 day or so) using the VIN number
