John - A 1969 Z28 that was built at Van Nuys sold recently on BAT and the seller did post a lot of information that you may find interesting:

I live in Palos Verdes, CA and I have a friend who owns a 1969 Z28, but it was built at the Norwood Plant.  We have a monthly Cars & Coffee that has been going on for over 10 years, but my friend's Z28 is the only one I've ever seen, although a number of replica Camaros with Z28 emblems have shown up.  My oldest friend had a 1968, 1973, and 1978 Z28, but he stopped buying them when he joined Toyota! - Mark

Now a little bit about the other Van Nuys Camaro I have. It is a first day build convertible built in late August. Vin ends in 000226 and Fischer Body #18. As most of you know, Van Nuys VIN numbers were sequential and counted all cars built. This included Impalas, Chevelles, Corvairs and I believe Novas. Very early build car with the complete intact born with drivetrain. Base convertible with 275HP 327, PowerGlide and a2.73 rear gear. Original Granada Gold, now black with the SS strip around the front of the nose.
Looking for any and all feedback on any of these Van Nuys built cars.

You are confusing the VIN with Fisher body codes. VIN numbers are sequential within each model line. Body scheduling codes are the ones that are sequential along all model lines.

Not true. The VINs were incremented by model. Only full-size was also built at LOS.
Yes, pretty low VIN, but production was ramping up and it was built about the 6th day of production. 18th convertible with deluxe interior.
