Kurt...  I think if you or I were working in that plant during that year, before June or July of 1969, we would have figured out a 'fix' for that problem... without duplicating the yr/month...?

What surprises me is that they stamped it P9R02A for a late 69 Camaro, but then the same day would stamp a P0R02A for a Chevelle.
That had to be some interesting internal memos about not changing the model year, but just for Camaro and Vette......
