Hey guys, new to the forum, looking at a '69 Camaro RS that apparently has the original LM1 and T-350. Seems to be very early Los Angeles car. 09A on the cowl tag,VIN 501112.The engine was rebuilt, not decked, the engine code is there, V0823HS but the VIN isnt there,didnt see it near the oil filter but the block has been painted.Casting date on block is H 20 8, seems right. Tranny also doesnt have VIN stamping but has H 23 8 casting numbers......any thoughts ? Hate to plunk down a big wad of cash without VIN numbers......

That date looks good for the car. VIN not on the pad isn't too surprising - LOS VIN stamps moved around.
It should be on the trans somewhere.
12 bolt? What color is the car?

Hate to ask, but how much when you say 'a big wad of cash'?

I haven't followed prices in this market, but the basic question is what's it worth finished?
