Guys woun't your money be better spent on having say... Jerry MacNeish come out and certify your car, as to what it is or is not? I know he can't supply you with photo's taken back in the day, or the POP. I can understand we all want original paper work on our cars, but it's 40 plus years later. People pass on, paper work gets thrown away.

I don't think you are going to get much out of Jerry for $50. Even if you purchase a full blown "certification" what you will get is Jerry's expert opinion on what the car is today. I would bet even Jerry would recommend this service, or provide it as part of his appraisal.

Well, now you can find out EXACTLY what dealer your car was delivered to!

Starting in mid April, 2014, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) will now be able to tell you the dealer code, dealer name, dealer location and the production date your car (1965 through 1972 for Camaro, Chevelle and Nova) was produced!

Now you can have the same information that was previously only available to 1962-1975 Corvettes. Armed with this data, you may be able to find the original dealer where your car was shipped, and possibly find out more information about your Chevrolet.

The Shipping Data Report can only be ordered online but membership in NCRS is NOT required. Fees will be $50 payable by credit card or PayPal and you will receive via USPS a letter with the information which includes the NCRS official seal. Note that in limited cases the dealer code may not be available or readable, and in this case a full refund will be made.

For more information, click HERE and again, note that this servoce starts in mid April, 2014.

This is great news Ed.  I will try it as soon as it is available. I have always suspected my car was sold locally and never ventured far from SoCal. It even has a California dealers license plate frame that may be original. If not, at least I will know what to look for in the future.

I will cerntainly use it. Both my 69,s history stops in the 70,s. My Z is reportly a Scuncio High Performance car with some items to prove it but this would be the icing on the cake. My L78 is documented to the 70,s in PA. If that is where is was sold I know where to look harder.

Ed thanks for the info, that is great news that I might be able to find history beyond 30 years ago. My history trail stops at a used car lost around 1983. George

Anyone know if there was much dealer exchanging going on back then? Where the delivered to dealer may be different than the selling dealer?

Very exciting info! I already know where my 69 came from, Eaton Chevrolet in Washington, DC, but I'm excited to learn more about my 68.
I've known my 69 was ordered and sold by Eaton Chevy for about 10 years now but, other than the building still there, I haven't found ANY other info about the dealership...no history, no ads, no promos or name plates...No nothin.

No. You already have the VIN, date produced, and dealer (on the MSO).

John Z do you know of any state that allows us to do a title search on our 1st gen camaro's?

Thanks Ed!  I think it will be $50 well spent in my case.

:)  I did it for my Corvette and it was almost as good as a window sticker.  Hope this is close to what I got for the Vette.  Well worth the cost.

I'm in the same boat at you; I know the dealer (about 30 miles from me), and I went to visit them in the late '70's after I purchased the car, in attempt to get a copy of their records, but even at that time, I was told the records were either destroyed, or stored away in a warehouse, and not available...?
