Roy, I appreciate all your efforts on behalf of Chevrolet enthusiasts.

I have a question. If a car is started on one day and finished on another, which day would be considered the official GM production date?

The day it finished! Based on what we understand the production date is the day the car finished and was billed to the dealer.

What would you consider close.... on my reply # 23 the camaro was transfered 366 miles from Burns, Oregon to Coquille, Oregon. ( Coos Bay Oregon )

For me..  the *closest* to that feeling I can imagine.. is the time when you're sitting in the New Car Sales Manager's office, listing out the options and colors I want (Hugger Orange of course)..  and listening to the sales manager tell me..  it will likely be in within 2 or 3 weeks.. :) ...  we'll call you!  :)

I thought like Gary when you place the order. But then I thought all you did was pay for the date. So then I got very philosophical and thought ok when does it become a car???? with the frame? the body the motor? when the metal is poured into the casting for the motor, or pressed into the body and tack welded ? Or is the rolling chassis like the egg and the motor is the "go" juice ?? So when they are mated together on the line you have conception.  :D   . Obviously this can open further debate....

Roy, another question for you please. If a car was a special GM executive purchased car for example, how would that show on the NCRS records?

That would probably depend on what you define as special. A car ordered by an executive through the normal new car purchase program would most likely show up as a zone and dealer with the dealer name. Cars for some executives probably went through the zone offices in which case threy show up as the zone office orders. Some of Mr Earl's styling cars show up as GM shop orders. So there a multitude of answes depending on who and why.

That makes sense. I can see where there could be many variations. This is all very interesting to me. Thank you for your response!

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.
Ed, Thanks for posting this "long awaited" info on our first Generation Camaros.  I've waited for something like this to be available over the years.  A lot of the Camaro Guru's will jump on this come April.  I know I'll be signing up.  Thanks to all who made this happen!!  Don
