Second last Camaro from Biel
« on: October 31, 2021, 05:51:04 PM »
Hello together,
I have a 68 Camaro 350SS that was assembled in Switzerland.
For this I got the gearbox number of the THM-350.
The numbers: B1L28D

Provided that I have seen this correctly, can this belong to a 68 Camaro?

Grtz tom

The "L" looks like it might be a "D". What is the build date of the car?

Hi MO,

Swiss-Camaro do not have "Body By Fisher", but GM Biel's are mounted in the engine compartment.

The chassis no. S9-685167
Rel. K-193-23

The number in the engine block: V1214MU.

I assume that the Camaro was assembled in Biel at the end of December 1968.
The release number K (code for 1968) speaks for it.
If the code K was used from 1.1.1968 (calendar year, not model year).

Hi Tom,

Based on this I would interpret B1D28D to be: Cleveland TH350, 1971, April 28, Day Shift. Note there is no L listed to designate a month.

Agreed that is a 71 trans.
K indicates it was assembled after 1/1/68, btw. Can you post a picture of the tag? What's the rear axle code?
Thanks!

So we know the axle is a 3.07 posi, but I can't make out the month. :)

Thank you!
