Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

The federally mandated requirement for the certification label became effective September 1, 1969, so any car built before that won't have the tag.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

I saw that too Ed, but from William's quote, "The only 1969 Camaros that should have it are those built at Norwood with a 1969 body build date of 08A and later." Maybe it wasn't a sure thing that 08A and later HAD to have it.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

Thanks for the clarification Ed.

So I guess maybe that should be 09A for the sticker rather than 08A ? Or another way to look at it might be partial VINs after about 9N669xxx ?

The drivers door VIN label was a requirement for the 1970 model year. When Chevy extended 1969 Camaro production the LH door shell was modified to include locating ribs; the label was to be placed between them.

Indications are the label was introduced 08A when Norwood reset body numbering to '100001'. That occured late in VIN range N669xxx.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

That would make sense. There's always the possibility that I'm mis-remembering also. It happens from time to time... I'll try to remember to check it out tonight.

Yeah, I think Bill just made a typo. It should be 09A instead of 08A

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

Somewhere I seem to remember having seen a quote that when the regular production year ended for 1969 model year at all the other GM plants and the Camaro production was extended at Norwood that two or more weeks worth of trimtags were stamped all at once by Fisher all with 08A so Fisher Body workers at Norwood could vacation as normal. If that is true, is it possible that only extended run vehicles physically assembled and expected to be shipped to dealer on the deadline of September 1 or later had the extra vin tag stickers? Bodys not waiting on specialized parts rolled quicker then those being held back for parts or special runs such as Z28's but William and the CRG folks that were there would be the best to question on this.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

Both Fisher and Chevrolet had the same vacation/break schedule. So that's a bunch of hooey.

There are some 08A cars with the door stickers.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

The memory failed me again. 08D has the ridges... At least mine does.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

Kurt do you have any pics of these original stickers? I have been trying to verify that cars prior to September received the sticker. Unless they were held up for a month?

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

FYI- That is a reproduction sticker on that car in Jerrys book. (page 200)
You can check it vs. an original and see the difference.

After searching and looking at many August cars, the earliest car I have seen with the blue Vin sticker was an 08E car, which would have been delivered in September. I would welcome anyone who has a august of 69 car with he blue vin sticker to come forward though...

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

1) I didn't see Ed had responded back then
2) I wanted to make sure I set the record straight, and make sure 08A-08D guys aren't thinking there car is incorrect because it doesn't have the sticker.
3) I have a 08C (late 69) Camaro, and I am gathering all the info I can on late August built cars.
This thread happen to pop up in my search.

Re: 69 Camaro vin trouble

I know this is an old thread but I can take a pic of the original door sticker on my RS if anyone is interested in seeing it. It was very late production I believe built in October.

This is my door off my 08D. This area is all original paint and I don't believe it ever had a sticker besides the ones you see here.
