Struggling with a 69 that has:

Van Nuys trim tag
12 bolt original rear end with 373 gears, drum brakes- with cooling vent holes in side of drum
two line fuel line- one small, one large
Big block air radiator
hole for speedo on drivers side of steering wheel shaft hole.
brake proportioning valve under drivers side frame
engine missing
Heater box missing
Trim tag does not id it as a X-22, etc.  It is blank at this spot
Black door sills
Original rear panel replaced

Questions:
1.  Did they any make SS Camaros in California in 69?
2.  Is this a L34 or L35 car, since it has two fuel lines, one small, one large?

Appreciate any help!  Thanks!

For clarification, the speedo hole is above the accelerator pedal, for a muncie trans.  Not sure how to edit my above post.  The radiator is # 3018624, made for COPO and 396 manual cars.  End codes on tank match OO, and has the curved neck, typical of BB air cars and COPO cars.

VIN is not on list of COPO cars, and car was made Feb 4, 1969.

HELP, PLEASE!

From my limited knowledge, I can tell you that SS Camaros were made in LOS (they did not use X codes).
As far as the the 2 fuel lines, I believe that it means that it had a Q-Jet carb.

That about all that I can help you with.

The real experts will chime in.

Of course Camaro SS were built in CA.

Whatever you have it has been messed with like many 1st gens. If it is a CA car it may have a body broadcast sheet on top of the fuel tank. For now post VIN and body tag info. If the engine mount brackets are still present are there part numbers on them?

Is it disc or drum? All '69 SS would have front power disc brakes from the factory.   Larry

The car has front disc brakes, rear drum. 

Trim Tag:
ST69= 1969 Model Year
12437= Camaro, V-8 Engine, Coupe.
VN235379= Body made at Van Nuys, CA plant, sequence # 235379 (sequence number of body is not supposed to be the same as the VIN sequence number.)
TR- 711= Trim number, black standard bucket seat interior
72 72= paint code top/bottom- Hugger Orange
01D= Date code 4th week of January (matches vin and date codes on other orginal parts like rear end.
V144= Build date of body- V= 22nd day of month, car #144 for that day.


The quadrajet was only put on the L34 and L35 396 cars, I think.  The VIN ends with 520387, made about the 4th day of February, I think.

Is there any way to tell if the car came with a 325 versus a 350 hp 396?

Thanks again!
