I have a 1969 camaro. Its VIN is 124379n56057. I've decoded its cowl tag. It was LeMans Blue with ivory standard interior and a parcemnt vinal top. It built in the second week of december.  It still has the orignnal rear end which a 12 bolt with a 2:56 ring gear and multi-leaf springs. Im guessing it was a 350 v-8 car because it has the duel fuel lines and it was a small block car. It was 3 speed auto with colume shift. It had four wheel non power drum brakes.  I just wanted to know is there a way to find out if it was one of these cars. I don't have a build sheet but everything I have points that way. Any help

Post the cowl tag numbers and that may help ID the car better and the rear numbers if you have them.

Yes, the car is an LM1. No other model could have an X44 tag and 2 fuel lines.
Could you check the VIN, it's missing a digit?
Do you have the rear axle code?

Thanks!

Kurt Im surprised that he found a 2:56 gearing in that 12bolt. Although I suppose someone could have changed out the gears. With the LM1 were you able to order such a highway gear for it? I thought only the Powerglides had that low of an option?

I've seen others with a 2.56. It appears that it was the economy ratio.

No, it was not in the database.

It has a 3 speed indicator on the column? Trans is gone?

Thanks!

Congratulations. It sounds like a really cool car. I have heard of LM1s, but what exactly were they?

the axles code is PY1101G now it also had a marking behind the G that looked like another 1, but im not sure if thats part of the number. So is it possible for it to be the right rear end.

Yes, it appears to be the correct rear axle for your car.  Yes, the 1 after the G is part of the axle code and is interpreted as "first shift".  PY1101G1 decodes as 2.56:1 axle ratio, non-posi, 12 bolt rear axle assembled on November 1, 1968 by the Detroit Gear & Axle Plant, first shift.  The date also would be correct for a 12B built car.  Congratulations!
