Venezuela's Camaros....
« on: March 03, 2009, 12:45:17 PM »
Hi everybody,
I own one of the few Venezuela-built '69 Camaro and I'm doing some research to know what it really is. I hope someone can help to decode its vin:

12437JC11####

12437 : Camaro V8 coupè hardtop, no problem.

JC : ????

I'm sure the letters I wrote and I double check the vin on the dash. And this numbers are in all documents (new and old) of the car. I'm sure the Camaro is '69, but serial number starts with 1, not with 5. Maybe Camaro production in Venezula starts in '69?
From the site I see that vin and cowl tag are different for outside US built Camaro but how?
Thanks in advance for any replay!

Louis,
J is the year, 9.
C is the plant, Caracas.

I'd be interested to see a trim tag pic. We've only run across three of the Caracas cars so far.

Thanks!

Many Thanks for decoding my vin!
Do not say nothing more than I know but...
Also the cowl tag is very funny compared to us built camaros.

It is different. They used the standard cowl tag, but stamped the VIN and color info on it and that was all.

That would be cool to see a picture of the VIN tag or Trim tag.

How many plants produced Camaros?
NOR=Norwood
LOS=Los Angeles (Van Nuys)
CAR=Caracas?
Any more?

Thanks,

Hi folks,
excuse me for my late replay, I was far away from home.
I'm  not so good with pc and other electronic stuff...
I can confirm wath KurtS says: in my cowl tag there is the vin! The very same number that you can see trough the glass on the dash (driver side).
The dash's vin also is different.... From what I see in the pics of Us-built camaros, there is a small metal plate that is riveted on the dash, in venezuela's camaros the vin number are simply stamped/molded in the dash....

Thanks Paul.  There was some great information there.

Does anyone have pictures of any of the VIN plates or Cowl tags from the Camaros built in other countries?  ...besides the Yutivo tag posted on that page?


Thanks,

Hey Louis,

Do you have any other original documentation on your car?  It's really too bad you don't have a way to post photos.  If you have any digital photos you could E-mail them to me and I can post them for you.  thunt@racehome.com

Are there many other 69 Camaros in Venezuela?

Take care,
Tony Huntimer
