Kelley, RRMs69Z, X66 714,

Each of your cars were 'late August '69' builds.   Are you aware of the CRG effort to ascertain WHEN the factory (Norwood or LA) began to apply the vinyl VIN stickers to the rear of the door, and also when the door frame was changed to include the indentations for the changes.   Are you fellas aware of that effort?  If not, you should each report if your cars driver doors have the change, and also if the VIN sticker was ever applied.   Photos would be good..  :)

My LH door & 1/4 are stamped H33 & the RH is stamped H34. My LH door is the new design but the car had a crappy paint job when I got it in 1981, even in the jams so I don't know if mine had the sticker. Built 8/28/1969.....Joe

Gary my car is being restored.  I plan to go to the shop on Friday and I will check. It was a drag car but the metal is all original (other than the tubed area).

So my report from ncrs states the obvious production date of July 10th of 68. I kinda already knew that due to trim tag with 07B on it.  The car was delivered to Bill Conner Chevrolet Inc. In Muncie Indiana. A member on here sent me paper advertisements from that dealership from 1968 and one of the sales was for the date of August 8th,9th and 10th and listed a green 68 Z for a tad bit over $3000. There was no picture with the ad, just a stock number with no VIN.
Question 1. Does anyone know how long from the July 10 build to delivery?
Question 2. With my car being british green and built 1 month earlier than the ad what's the likelihood of that being my car?
Question 3. How many green Z28 would a dealer order? I wouldnt think I'd have 4 or 5 green ones at one time?? Vs. Red white black etc?
