What is the last date code for 1968 Z/28 in December 1967?
« on: January 26, 2009, 04:44:33 AM »
My car has a 12D build date. Is there a 12E code for that month? Plus, who has the last Tuxedo black Z/28 in the registry? I believe mine is one of the last ones built, just curious. I read that Tuxedo black Z/28's stopped on January 1, 1968.

You'd think. :)
But there's a January built black Z out there. Surprised it didn't go thru as a special paint code.

Not many black 68 Z's.....

Last black Z28 that I looked at was an 03D car and that was listed as special order paint.  Canadian car with docs.  As I recall, there is something strange about code AA and code - - being used in the month of Dec.  I'll have to check my notes when I return home.

My 68 Z/28 is a 12E car, not black though. Just wanted to let you know that there were Z/28's made in the 5th week of December 1967.

Larry, would you post your trim tag?  I've never seen at 12E, which I presume your car is dated between the 26th and 29th.  I've got a 12D coupe.
I'd appreciate it!  ;D

Ok, now I have another question. I looked at the 1967 calendar: http://www.flicklives.com/Timeline/1967_cal.html .
My car is a 12D build date. So what constitutes the 4th complete week. From what date to what date? December 1st was on a Friday, so was Dec 1-2 the range for 12A? Or would it be Dec 1-8 regardless of the day of the week? In other words, would my car be built between Dec 22-29, the actual week of Christmas?

Fisher defined the calendar however they wanted - the weeks varied.

A calendar is also on the site: http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#Calendar
