I purchased a 1969 Camaro and am trying to verify if it's the real deal SS as advertised.  I have the original motor with correct partial vin, HA coded SS350.  The car has multileaf suspension as well as 2 fuel lines.  I've also attached a pic of the drivers rear wheel well to show the frame where there should be a reinforced plate?  It's hard to determine anything with the undercoating there.  Are there any additional things I should be looking for?  Thanks for your help.

welcome Newb geb78. You say the engine is original? HAcode? How could it be anything but an SS? Of course, the first thing that will be asked on this site (so, I will go ahead and ask) is to provide pictures of the Trim Tag and engine stamps/castings/dates/all partial VINs. Hopefully, you have studied all the related information on the site already and can conclude on your own what you have since there is so much information that is presented so well by our site administrators and founders with more detail  topics(and sarcasm/humor) provided by our knowledgable members, here, in the forum. Agree, your pic is hard to determine the "plate". It looks more to be an outline of where a rear ex. hanger was located, but the holes are way too big, so more pics needed, maybe cleaning off that area.

Post a pic of the code off the rearend & of the trim tag too.  Doesn't look like there is a plate there unless there is serious undercoating on it.  Id get out the scrapper.

Thanks for your replies!  I felt good about have the original motor until I read all the posts about re-stamping them.  I recently changed out the rear end from mine to a 12 bolt., it had a 10 bolt, don't think it was original to the car.  Here's the additional photos, thanks for your help.

Did you recently purchase it and now trying to resell?  In the ebay ad that ended June 7th you are the seller. Not that it matters just curious.
Very nice looking car!

I was the seller.  I've had the car for 8 months and was going to buy a pro touring camaro my mechanic just finished.  Putting it up for sale got all the questions arising about it's authenticity.  I'd love to get a definitive answer just for my own peace of mind.  I decided against the pro touring car.  I just really like the stock look.  I may make a motor change to add some hp since the original motor is out of the car.  Otherwise I'm just going to enjoy it.

How many fuel lines between the fuel tank and the fuel pump, one or two?

So the axle has been replaced and that's the new one?

I can't tell much with that pic, but I question the block.

What's the trans codes?

Would the date stamp be a "T" and not a "V"?

I can see a resemblance to this pic.  The shape and location,  looks like a hanger plate is there to me.
