Looks like the wrong con VIN stamping 19L530656 was partially stamped over the V0418DZ engine stamp.
Learning more and more about less and less...

Itís off by 1 digit which happened (as I have found by reading) but wasnít it supposed to be fixed before it left the assembly plant?

Hard to see with the alternator in the way. Missed it.

Not the clearest picture but you can at least see all the numbers and characters. The VIN stamp does not look right to me though.

The random large fonts are a known anomaly for later VN block stampings.

This also is a burnished brown LA Z that was on eBay a few years ago. The seller wanted an offer before you could have someone look at the car. It never got any bids and I have no idea what happened to it. The original engine was out of it and it had another engine in it so you got both. The pictures were terrible but it was a pretty neat car. I think it had an Endura bumper also

Referring to photo 112, has the side cowl panel been replaced?  I couldn't see the partial hidden VIN.

Thanks William. I saw the large number 6 in the VIN and wondered what that was all about. I just figured the number got lost/broken/worn out, and thatís what was used to replace it.

There were many cars that did not get the second hidden VIN. The car I am working on now does not have one. I looked around the area and it's not there.. Danny

Any idea why that happened?

An operator at Norwood or Van Nuys when they were building 1969 Camaros would have about a minute to perform a task, so it is possible for mistakes to be made when stamping partial VIN numbers as the Federal requirement to do so had been recently passed:

https://www.vintageautomotive.net/?tag=frame-vin

I was working at the Van Nuys Plant when we were required to apply the anti-theft labels on various parts on Camaros and Firebirds and remember the problems we initially had on the assembly line and cars had to be pulled off the line when the labels were not applied properly.
