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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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?

Check out Jerry's 69 Fact Book, page 200, lower left. 124379N671208 is a 08A build.
