Pretty sure everyone will be patient as we are very appreciative of the efforts of this service.  If they are not; they are ignorant and need not waste your time.

The shipping data report will be a document very similar to that sown in post #40 of this thread.

Bullitt,

Based on what Roy Sinor has told us we will receive, and based on my own car's VIN and dealer tag and label (on the car when I purchased it in 1976), I can predict what my letter will say... :)

---------------------------------
    "Subject to the General Conditions listed on the reverse side, National Corvette Restorerís Society, Inc, confirms the following information exists in the GM shipping data records for the 1969 Camaro with vehicle identification number  124379N686XXX.
                    .
    The GM official Production Date was 9/17/1969

    The original delivery dealer was Dealer code 73   in zone 8 .

    The name and Address for the dealer was:
       Joe V Clayton Chevrolet, Inc
       Arab, AL  35016
"

---------------------------------------------------------------

My only point with this is that most of us know or suspect the information on our cars already, and we can calculate the production date based on the VIN, but what the service does for us is PROVIDE GM CONFIRMATION of that information!  and that is well worth the $50 IMO...   :)

When I get my letter, I'll update this and see how good my prediction was.... :)

I agree with above. Going to wait for the dust to clear first. Feel they might get overloaded with requests.

I think your dead on Gary W. The plus side is it gives you guys a starting point. But most dealers are not around or the Docs have been thrown out years ago. That said it's worth trying...

Did you read the disclaimer note on the email confirmation? Not to take anything away from this great service (I have already paid my $50, transaction #39) and it is the best chance many of us have to track down more history on our cars, but the accuracy of the dealer info you will get is entirely dependent on the dealer code database, which did not come from GM.

Let me put this fire out before it gets started.  Sometimes words get lost in translation.  The dealer database which is linked to the wording in the order process is not what we use. That data base as it explains is hobbyist created, it does provide some invaluable information and we suggest that you input your data when you receive it, but it is not maintained by NCRS it is hobbyist created, therefore not all information in it can be documented or supported. The data you get will come from the GM file. Not the aniline database. ;)

Does that mean if the hobbyists don't have your dealer in the database it will just be a number, on the report you get from them? Sorry just trying to understand the relationship of who has what information
