....
You bring up an interesting point, AND it raises a *further goodie* of taking advantage of the NCRS' (soon to be provided) material on *actual production build date*.... :)   This one point would be worth the $50 when attempting to confirm a part as being 'possible' for your car...  and I think I just convinced myself of the advantage of purchasing the info, even if we already know the dealer/etc (as I do for my car)...

good point Gary. Instead of guest-imating based on build week and vin number having the exact day would be nice. I also think instead of just a letter with a gold seal, maybe a printed out copy of the microfiche with a guide on how to decipher it would be cool.

thanks for the kind words Jano. (The pictorial of your car through the years that you posted turned me into a big fan of your car) ;)

I believe
Interesting to note that the vin stamped on the trans is one digit off of the cars vin.
I believe it's a typo. The trans VIN Matches the title and the code on the Protecto Plate. He has the correct VIN documented in the box with the vehicle's description. However, the narrative of the description is incorrect.
I also noticed that the Protecto Plate shows the rearend coded for BV; 410 gears and he describes it as 3.70

I believe what Mr. Lillard is referring to is that the VIN is 9N62563 and the trans is stamped 9N626163

And to further confuse things, the seller's description states, "VIN # ON TRANS N625164".   ???

Wow, he stated "THE POPULAR THING TODAY IS TO KEEP THE CARS PATINA"! A shame it was lost in so many, many places with the black paint. Like the color combo though! :)

Nice looking car YES
Barn Find Depends on your definition of BARN FIND
Did it have the black grille when it went into the barn?

Maybe found in a barn or barn/like building where it was stored. Big deal, that means nothing. This is by no means a survivor. It just happens to be a low mileage car that is now for sale. It was beat to hell at the track, repainted, tons of wrong parts and numbers, from the Master cylinder up and down and then parked. Needs restoring for sure, thousands of dollars worth. There are so many nicer cars out there for the same money or less that J.M has documented that I would rather have it isn't funny. This guy is a classic car novice who sells diesel trucks for a living. I am not impressed... Danny

Kurt you had me laughing with that one.... :D

surprised Gary hasn't chimed in with a response.

I do like the color, you see a lot of the blue, orange, green, I don't see as many burgundy. But i am sure those colors (blue, orange, green) ended up selling a lot of cars for them because of the popularity.

Yep, when one looks at the door jams & hinges, the underneath, and the engine compartment one has to know this car had a hard life and is no cherry...... Imagine if you could see it in person! :(

Burgandy IS a nice color; lots better than all the blue and red camaros owned by guys that sooner or later want to repaint to *simulate* an Orange Hugger..  :)   But, it's very easy to understand their desire when one considers these other 'facts' about the 'Color Orange'... :)

1. "International orange is a color used in the aerospace industry to set objects apart from their surroundings, similar to safety orange".  This color is also VERY similar to Hugger orange, so perhaps that's why Chevrolet chose this color for their 'hugger' camaro, which has the safety aspect to set 'Hugger Orange Camaros apart - from all the plain jane colored cars, and alert other drivers to stay out of the way for their own safety? 
2. "Orange" is the 'color' worn by engineering graduate students during advanced degree graduation ceremonies. 
3.  Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors.  It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. I have been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.
4. Orange is a bright, provocative color. It's a hue we associate with sunset, reminds us of trick-or-treat, or brightens an otherwise dull day.
5. The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.
6. With its enthusiasm for life, the color orange relates to adventure and risk-taking, inspiring physical confidence, competition and independence. 7. Those inspired by orange are always on the go!
8. the color Orange is extroverted and uninhibited, often encouraging exhibitionism or, at the very least, showing-off!
9. The color orange relates to social communication, stimulating two way conversations. A warm and inviting color, it is both physically and mentally stimulating, so it gets people thinking and talking!

There are many more, but I think this list more than adequately explains why EVERYONE has a secret desire for a HUGGER ORANGE Camaro.. :)
