rear end for my car dating info help experts please
« on: May 02, 2014, 02:54:23 PM »
I have a 09C 1969 - later production car and the original rear is missing my vin is 6859XX I have found a BU rear with assembly date of 09-16 what are the opinions is this too close to build date for my car? I know 2-3 weeks earlier would be optimum but there aren't many of these coming along nowadays- thoughts?

Hey Rich, my car is a 08C (august 69) , and my rear end has a stamp of BU 0815 G2. SO I would say it would just make it to be date correct for your car. Now one thing to consider is they started using a different format right around then.
A good find for you. How much are they asking, (if you don't mind me asking)
I think Gary's orange Z is a 09C and his has the new format. He will probably chime in with his vin so he can relay what his car came with from the factory.

Hope this helps

My experience tells me that date would work. I have posted this info before, but my 3E (5th week of March) car has a rear axle dated April 7th!  Top that !?

I've talked to Rich about this already, but for everyone else's benefit, my VIN is N6866XX, and I believe it was built on 17 September (O9C week).  The rear end is the new casting (341) and it's stamped 'C  BU0829G1'....   Rich's VIN is slightly earlier than mine and was probably built the same day, OR the day before.   I didn't know if it was possible for a rear to be assembled (within a day of the car production)..  Perhaps JohnZ, Kurt, William or someone can expound on the 'shortest possible' differential build to car build time frame based on their knowledges of where the rears were assembled and how they were moved to Norwood.

Rich:   If you can wait a few weeks, I should get my actual production date from NCRS which could change from my estimate by a day or so...?

Rich,
Your car was probably shipped 9/17. Hard to have an axle dated the day before. But not sure you'll find a closer date.

I , like others, try to extrapolate information based on what we know about build dates. Using the 912 a day production quota (going by memory, so forgive me if I am off), I use the CRG page http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#HowMany comparing end of month production and calculate my vins accordingly with days of production to calculate build date. This calendar year, 2014, some may have noticed, is the same date/day corespondence as 1969, so today, Friday 5-2 also fell on a Friday in 69. Not relavent, but just pointing out a fact. Anyway, I'll point out a caveat about 3E being only one day, Monday the 31st of March, which I feel in reality 3E must have encompassed the first week of April. The ending Vin for March according to the chart for Nor. plant is 62,3587. My car is 62,84XX almost 5000 past the supposed last March Vin. This would point to my car being built using the 912 per day formula as about 5 days into April, I figure. Considering there were 4 working days after the Monday 4-31 and then the weekend, I surmise the car was rolling off the line about April 7th or 8th. BAck to the rear, it has a build date of April 7th. I wonder too how it could be this close, but it is. As pointed out in other similar topics, the TT date is loosely in line with calendar dates, so maybe the car was completed more like on the 8th or 9th of April. Nonetheless, I can use what I do know and I have no reason to believe the rear is nothing but the born with component and conclude that some components can be very close. As a comparrison, My 11D car has a 11-22 axle, but so does my 12B car, same date, same BS code. If anything, I may have question about the 12B being Born with, but it has always appeared as untampered basd on brake lines etc..and has been that way at least the 35 years I have owned the car. So, one car is within a month of build, one within a week and one within a day(s).

 "My 11D car has a 11-22 axle, but so does my 12B car, same date, same BS code."  It was a little late when I posted and I chose to use my memory-a real faulty device of late. A little correction 11D= BS 1118 G2 E (Nov 18th), 12B= BS 1122 G2 E (Nov 22nd). Thanks CRG.
Jonn's 12B (post #9) is BS 1121, one day difference. I bet those rears where stacked like cord wood at the plant?!
