I know the website says 30 days but what is the normal turn around time on the reports?

Mine came sooner; 2-3 weeks. Probably depends on their workload.

Order mine Feb 21st and it received it Mar 11th.

The 8.5x11 envelope had a large "DO NOT BEND" sticker on it, but I'll have to assume the postal workers can't read.

Dealer Code 483, zone 34.

Received my NCRS report which has my '67 shipped to Dealer Code 2 in Zone 21.  Dealer details also included as GM Export, Europe. Doesn't tell me much more than I knew from the French tags etc, but interesting just the same and well worth the fee.

Yup, zone 21 is export. 2 for Europe is the only code I know.
What was the production date?

Interesting list. Some of those numbers were used in the 30s. It was used in part of the body serial number then, like 12AE or 6CC were the series of the car built at that plant.....Joe

Hi,
Thanks to Kurt for approving my entry to the group!
I do have questions about the NCRS report as a springboard to more information:

First, my 67 Convertible which I purchased in 1985 was shipped to De Long Chevrolet of San Rafael, CA in November 1966 but info on the dealership seems to be a dead end so far. Recently located a license plate frame and proudly display it on the car. Anyone with a source of information on this dealership?

Second, I purchased my 68 Convertible in 1991 which was shipped to Cormier Chevrolet of Long Beach, CA in September 1967. I think the dealership is now called Win Chevrolet. I also have found some nice license plate frames which I display on the car but information on this dealership is also tough to find. Anyone have a source of information?

Thanks to all for your contributions to the site and the research of our cars,
Brian

I've found plenty of information about the original dealerships for my cars and others at www.newspapers.com. Sometimes you get lucky and find a advertisement for the car you're researching.
I've also checked the Secretary of State business web sites (for the state in question) to find when dealerships started and ended. This can be helpful when starting a search timeframe on newspapers.com.
Good Luck,
Rich

Brian - Below is some information on Cormier Chevrolet:

https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/auto-dealerships.1084547/page-2

I ordered my 1998 Z28 from Cormier and thought of getting one with the 1LE option, but the fleet manager talked me out of it as he thought it would take a long time for the Camaro to be built.  There was also only one other option available with the 1LE package, which was the trunk-mounted 10 CD player. - Mark

Just received my NCRS shipping info on my Norwood built 69 Z28 Camaro.
These docs show my car being shipped to a Los Angeles dealer named Bliss and Paden.
Does this shipping of a Norwood car to LA make sense to any one since there is a plant there in LA making Camaros?
I am in the midwest and so was the previous owner to me who told me he had bought the car in SoCal and had it shipped to the midwest. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this or can explain it.

The Van Nuys plant stopped producing Camaros as of June 30. CA orders after June were built at Norwood. 
Learning more and more about less and less...
