X77 dates
« on: November 13, 2017, 03:19:01 AM »
Hello everyone,
A question for ya's, when exactly was the x77 code used in the 69' model year? I'm looking at purchasing a 1969 z at the moment and its confusing.. the fisher body tag shows a build date of 09D. Is this possible?

1969 Camaro production spanned 16 months: August 1968 - November 1969. X codes entered production December 1968 at the Norwood, Ohio assembly plant.

The VIN of the car in question will tell you approx when your car was built.. early (Sept '68) or late (Sept '69)...

Vin is late 69' 19N690704. The build date of the Motor is on the pad Boss where it should be but the Vin is absent in this location. It is in the area where the Oil filter resides.

Your question was answered by Kurt in your OTHER THREAD.

As he stated, the alternate VIN location is discussed HERE.

Bad photo; too much paint.

Who cares? Pad stamp is all you need to know.

It would be significant being that the cowl tag shows x77 and the vin matches that of the block would it not?

I guess if the majority is in favour of a fake then it wouldn't matter even if it wasn't. Be too hard to sell down the road.. it does have a POP but these are common.
Thanks

Was built with a green interior, now black.

Tag does look real but the non-original rivet is a concern.

I'm from just outside of Toronto Canada and this car originated not far from here. if the GM Canada document is correct.. the Vin would either validate a true z28 or not. I'm thinking a lot of work went into a car that was fake.. still is not worth a whole lot.

Considering how a born with block can add a third to the price of a car, it easy to see why a block would be restamped.

I'm from outside of Toronto Canada and if the GM heritage document according to the Vin number of the car is accurate, it is in fact a z28. Purchased not far from where I live. Or the Vin number has been removed from the real car. Either way it's a topic that I think is relavent given the amount of z28's being sold out there.

The problem with CDN docs is cars that are virtually junk are being located, pieced back together. Nothing original remains.

CDN docs used to be an asset. Now they can be a red flag.

Original tag, restamped block.
In 2002, car was supposed to be a one-owner car that was restored.  Hasn't changed much in 15 years.
