I was looking at your excellent decode program for Camaro cowl tags and was wondering why my cowl tag is ST 68-12337.  Everything made sense until I came to the third digit. Mine is a 3 and according to the decode program on the CRG website all 1968 Camaros should have a 4 not a 3.  My vin is 123378N.  I know that the car was a L6 built in Norwood but don't understand the cowl tag having a 3 instead of a 4.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not a great pic. Hard to read but I had to compress it so the server would allow it.

That's a reproduction cowl tag.    Sad

Yes it is.  It would be funny, but I'm not sure I would laugh.

Not happy about the cowl tag. I do not like anything like that faked.  Thanks for the info, not what I wanted to hear but at least I
know the truth.

tlareau - I would follow Ed's lead on this one. I believe he asked for the following;
 
"I suggest you check the hidden VIN's on your car and post a picture of the VIN tag on the dash. Something is VERY wrong."

Just take a digital pic & post it here. If you have trouble posting the pic let me know.

Here is one of the locations Ed mentioned you can find the partial VIN (under the passenger side cowl vent)...

Doesn't really matter on a 68, theres no info on the tag other than the cars interior and exterior colors.  It's not like someone changed a base car into a Z28, or anything like that.  If the colors are correct maybe someone just gaffed up the original and replaced it with a new one with the same data.
