As posted above by JohnZ and as the article states, body numbers for 1969 were issued out of a central office to both VN and NOR at the time the order was accepted. As the article mentions:(for example, 220340 may have been built at NOR and 220341 may have been built at VN).
My VIN ends in 581767. VIN sequencing for '69 NOR production begins with 500001. VIN # 581767 = 81,766 1969 Camaro built at Norwood.
Body number is 220831. Do we happen to know what the first body # was for Camaro for 1969? Did they begin with 200,000? What is the earliest '69 Body Number in the database?
I am assuming that the Fisher Body Numbers must have begun with a much lower number than 200,000 for 1969. If the body numbers for VN and NOR began at 200,000, then I am really confused. Body number of 220831 wouldn't even be in the same ballpark with VIN #581767.
