I have a 1969 SS Camaro. I heard that they did not all had a "Camaro Made by Chevrolet" emblem. Is this true and what is the most common.

Note: My car has a spoiler on the trunk.

Thanks,
Daniel.

There was no emblem on the trunk if a spoiler was factory installed.

Cody - I'm probably wrong here but I thought that there was no emblem if dealer installed. When they installed it at the factory they moved the emblem up to clear the spoiler.

Factory spoiler cars have the emblem, dealers usually removed and didn't relocate when adding a spoiler.

Yes. If you open the trunk lid you can see where the two areas that the emblem could've been mounted at. The two areas where the sheet metal reinforcements leave openings to the outer sheet metal and the openings match up with the emblem mounting lugs positions. Aft set of openings is for the non spoiler cars, forward set is for the factory installed spoiler emblem mounting.

How did the factory seal the set of emblem holes under the spoiler?

Maybe I am wrong here but wouldn't there be no holes drilled for the emblem under the spoiler on a factory spoiler car?

I've always heard all trunk lids were punched for the emblem and if the lid ended up on a spoiler car the factory moved them and bolted the spoiler over the 3 holes...

Well, I saw an original X33D80 today, and it did not have the emblem holes under the spoiler. I wonder if after they coded D80 on the cowl tag (which I think was like May 69), they started installing deck lids without the extra holes. Just a thought.

BTW, what kind of bubble gum?

I've seen plenty of spoiler cars that have both sets of holes. The holes under the spoiler were plugged with seam sealer. Many of the cars you see now have been repainted so the oportunity to weld or bondo up the holes was probably taken advantage of. The best cars to look at would be original paint spoiler cars. I have two 69 pace car deck lids with original paint. Both have two sets of holes. But then again, they built a lot of these cars differently from time to time.

The one I saw was an original paint car, too. That's why I thought maybe when they started putting D80 on the trim tag, they started using spoiler specific deck lids.

Gary, that makes a lot of sense! Fisher would have to have a trim tag code for all special metal parts. Your brain is working! Kevin
