TWO 'original owners'?   Were they a husband/wife team?     Unless the second owner still owns the car, wouldn't it now be a 'Three Owner' car??
and a 4 owner car after someone buys it from the dealer?

This is 124379L504991.

There was a guy that was advertising a 1st gen as one-owner. He'd owned it for 4 years.
Umm, let's review some math facts...

Hmm, without the original motor, its going to be hard to validate a LOS car is a Z/28.

Charley?  Do you (Or anyone for that matter) have a photo of a build sheet taken from the gas tank of a Van Nuys '69 Camaro?   I'd love to see one (to compare to the one taken from my '69 Corvette gas tank).. Smiley

Two different documents - the Corvette had a "Corvette Order Copy" that listed color, trim, and options (but didn't have a VIN on it), and the LOS Camaro had a Body Broadcast Copy that had boxes for components down to the part number level.

  Or hard to disprove it.
IMO, I wouldn't get too concerned or too hung up documentation unless you have intentions to resell the car (most here keep their prized possessions) so just enjoy owning and driving it.

Thanks for the information John.   I had to repair a leak in my gas tank back in the late 80's, and while I had it out, I photographed and then removed the tank sticker to preserve it.   Due to discolorations from glue and accumulated dirt, portions at the top were illegible, and I never realized that the VIN wasn't on it.  I was just happy to verify the options and information that I could read which coincided with what I'd been told by the original owner and from the Protecto-plate...    Why would this document have such detailed information on options, colors, dealer, dates, etc..  but not include the VIN?   Is there some other means of positive association (to a specific car) other than the VIN? 
(PS.  After posting this (It's just TOO EASY to ask JohnZ these questions!)  Smiley     I did some google searching and found on Corvette forum an explanation of sorts:
http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c3-tech-performance/1937373-order-copy-tank-sticker-question.html    )



Does the Camaro Body Broadcast Copy (as used at Van Nuys production) include the car's VIN?
