In case the picture is ever lost, to further clarify these LOS tags, since in 67 they used similar body numbers for each of the four possible body/interior type combos and both need to be considered:

67 12437 LOS 18146  coupe standard interior
67 12437 LOS 1271  coupe standard interior
67 12437 LOS 22466  coupe standard interior
68 22637 LOS 53 Firebird

Out of ignorance and curiosity..... These tags are all over ebay from time to time and nearly always from LOS cars.
I guess I'm curious why?  Did LOS produce exponentially more vehicles than NOR or are they all for sale from the California area or ???

Chris, approximately 75% of first gen Camaros were assembled at Norwood. More here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#Where

Thx ZLP, in my mind if LOS only produced 25% of all camaros roughly that makes me wonder even more why all the tags for sale seem to be LOS tags.

I also saw that chart for " end of month production and vin" that's pretty coo. I had not ever seen that. Naturally I tried to find my vin.   8N467701 it falls in a weird spot for my July second week car? Ncrs paper says July 10th and by the  chart it should be a May or June car if I'm figuring it correctly? Is that possible or normal?

Please read the caveats *before* that table.
I put an * right before the data applicable to your car.  Maybe I need to bold it too? Lots of people don't read the notes....

Lol no you don't have to hold it.... I read it but in my mind I'm trying to understand it.  I'm not sure I understand why it might be off by nearly 6 to 8 weeks. It almost makes me think my cars tampered with is all.
