Build Date
« on: March 16, 2010, 04:32:35 PM »
I have a 69 Camaro and am not sure of the build date. The cowl tag and VIN read as follows:

ST6912437   NOR184530BDY
TR 713           7272 PNT
11C              X22D80

VIN: 124379N711675


Was the car built in November 68 or November 69 ?

Thanks

You have a November 1969 build car. Production ended at the Norwood plant at about  #711700 for the Camaros.

Are you certain of the 11C date?

Yes, the 11C is very clear on the cowl tag.

It's a little out of range according to Jerry's book but it is Nov. 69. He has the VIN's ending with 711600 so it would be 75 over the end run.

On page 199 of Jerry's book he does state 711600 as the end of production at Norwood. But on page 201 of the same book he states production ended at Norwood " around 711700".  I was surprised also on the 11C date but the serial number seems to put it in the last day or so of production.

An 11C build date did not exist for November of '69.

I'll bet you can figure out the rest.

Unfortunately correct. Whoever had it made used data for an 11C of '68 build. The highest body numbers at the end of '69 production were in the mid-16xxxx range.

Had good taste in color and equipment though!

Is it legal to alter the trim tag on a car to influence the value ?

Don't know about legality of altering a trim tag, no regs I'm aware of. Fraud however is illegal, and I would expect altering anything to sell it for more than it's actual value would be considered fraud. Just my opinion.

Has anyone in this forum experienced this, and if so does anyone no of an attorney that would give advise on something like this ? Unfortunatley the engine was also a restamp!
