Thanks for the response John. I knew that 2nd gens were not your bag but also knew that you know
GM procedures from the era and are fairly well versed in Canadian cars due to your own car. If you are interested the auction # is 4647990701 (the link did not work from the CRG site for me either...curious).
When I postulated that it might be a pilot car, some one on the 2nd gen site stated that only Norwood had pilot cars (17 according to this person who sites GM records)...does that seem likely? for the sake of argument I am assuming that the car is not a fake (It is not being represented as an SS or Z/28 - just a V-8 RS)...Some one else on the 2nd gen site has stated, again, that GM records state that L500001 was produced in the first week of January. Do therse records exisit for public access? Or near public access? I had assumed that 1970 Chevrolet production info was just as "lost" as '67-69 info. Any thoughts?
As always, thanks for your input.
The link doesn't work for me, and I'm not that familiar with the 2nd-gen info, but 02D doesn't make sense to me for an L500001 VIN. Pilot cars were serialized beginning with 001, and were built 12-16 weeks prior to start of regular production. There were no Canadian-built 2nd-gen Camaros - all were built at Norwood and Van Nuys, just like the first-gen cars.
