When did they start building Camaros at the Van Nuys plant? I know a guy that says he worked there and claims they didnt start until '72. Im pretty sure it was earlier than that.

71 Z28-RS, 95 Z28 Convertible 6 speed, 70 Chevelle SS396 soon to be ZZ502

I'm pretty sure they built them the first year, 1967. They didn't build that many there, as I believe the plant was also the same one the Chevelles were built in. (not too sure about that!)
They built them for quite a few years, i'll have to check...

I believe that they began producing in '67.
As Dave stated, production was a bit lower (as far as camaros) then Norwood.

There are published VIN tables for both plants for first gen camaros....if you are curious to see the # of builds vs. time.
