GM Suisse Import, 69 Camaro RS SS, it's a real car?
« on: January 19, 2019, 02:48:39 PM »
Hello,

I have a 69 Camaro, Swiss import by GM Suisse.
At http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#XnnCodes
is the first built from 12B.
But mine has 10B as build date and the X11.
The question: can it be an RS / SS?

I can submit a photo later, as well as the VIN.

Grtz Tom

Are you sure it's 10B? On my screen, that looks like 12B with some grime on the tag...... compare with the 2 in the interior trim code directly above.
But as you've got access to the car in person, if it's definitely 10B, perhaps it's a late 1969 build? Does the car still have a Norwood VIN, or was it assigned a Swiss VIN on homologation?

My friend rubbed a copy with a scribe.
So it's definitely a 12B.

The homologated in Switzerland 1969 Camaro, as well as all other GM vehicles except Opel, have the respective VIN from their country of origin.

The VIN sequence of this Camaros I do not know, but is quite normal 124379NXXXXXX.

Those mounted before 1969 have for example S9-675199 (Camaro) or others before 1967 SS-601030 (Impala).
