69 Camaro Build Date

I have a 69 Camaro BB Convertible with a build date of 05C. I am trying to determine if this was a very early 69 build date (May 68) or if it was a very late 69 build date. Can this be determined by the vin sequence number ?

Re: 69 Camaro Build Date

Yes, it can. If you post all but the last three of the VIN, we can tell you if it matches up. In other words, post back 124679N586xxx and we can get what you need.

FWIW, it has to be a May 69 build. 68s were still being built in May of 68. I'd have to check to be 100%, but I think September 68 (09) is the first 69 build.

May 69 would be mid-year, because of extended 69 model year production.

Re: 69 Camaro Build Date

August 68 (08D) was the first build week for 69 Camaros. May would be mid year or later. If it's a 69 with 05C, it was built the 3rd week of May 1969.
