The Camaro White Book , by Mike Antonick, lists all the RPOs for every year. You have to know which ones are on your car. I'm sure there are other sources too.

Thanks for the info. So far I've ben able to determine that my car was built the 1st week of September 1969. It was built with a 307, 2 BBL carb, PG, non-posi 10 bolt. I think the cowl tag was changed at some time, is there anyway to determine what the body codes were if you can't trust the cowl tag?

I've got to take some pics of the distributor this evening and I'll try to get a good pic of the cowl tag and post it. Thanks

Not the best pic but I think you should be able to read it anyway. You can click on the pic to enlarge it or the tag reads as follows. Does this look like a cowl tag that would be original to this car? Thanks for your help.

ST69 12437 NOR 124851 BDY
TR   715        53   50      PNT
     09C          X11

Here's a cleaned up shot of Old Man's Trim Tag.

Looks good to me.
