I purchased the Z/28 this weekend that came with the attached broadcast sheet. I'm trying to decode the info on it but the only example I can find of one is in MacNeish's fact book that shows a Norwood one and its different from this one.

Can anyone break down the options on this? I'm also wondering if there's a way to know the original dealer.

Thank you

Most of it is pretty self explanatory. Which boxes are you having trouble decoding?

I'm having trouble reading the titles of some of the boxes, and on some of them that have letter codes I don't know what they specify.

Box 147, what does the A specify?
Box 169/170, what does the AN specify?
Box 180, which air cleaner is 07?
Box 194, what does the BA specify?
Box 229 looks like it was selected with the #, what option is this?
Box 262, what does the UN specify?

Thank you

Brian, Did someone in the past put the vinyl top on? The reason I ask is your trim tag states a (- -) for a paint code. If it came with a vinyl top it should be (- B). Something you might want to investigate. Beautiful car, I always like the orange cars with the black stripes.

It's interesting to see the "STRIPES TO BE BLACK" on the broadcast sheet. I wonder if that was needed because the color was -- or was the color -- because of the stripe color?

I just think that's so cool to have a broadcast sheet. What percentage of say, 69 Camaros still have their B/S's do ya'll think? 5%? And how much does it increase the value? 10%?

I don't know if it originally had a vinyl top or not, but I definitely like it. I know that the -- is for custom paint color but I'm not sure what the original color was. It looks like the overspray on the backside of the fenders is original and looks to be old and Hugger orange, but I can't be sure.

I'm going to try and track down more history on the car.

NOR cars rarely if ever have a broadcast sheet. Only one I thought I physically saw on a NOR car turned out to be a fake document. Van Nuys Camaro's seem to be the ones that may have a chance to find.
Good questions Brett!

Brian, good find and enjoy your 69Z. You might be able to remove some trim pieces and get a good handle on the original color. Hugger Orange had a paint code so I'd believe it to be something different. Try removing the sill plate and see what the color looks like under them. Easy take off!

Brian, Not necessarily. - - could also mean stripe delete (As I have on my car) Or what I read somewhere that the orange cars got white stripes unless they were ordered with a black vinyl top, then the stripes would be black. I'm thinking your car was ordered orange (No vinyl top) and the original owner wanted the black stripes. That's where the - - (special paint) comes in. And then down the road the vinyl top was put on. Let me say this is just speculation on my part. Please keep us updated, I know we all would like to know more. And thanks for sharing this with us.

This car was ordered in Hugger Orange - stripes would be white but they wanted black.
Camaro VIN, Cowl Tag, and other Numbers Decoding

Lots on this forum about this car via a prior owner.

That CBC decoder is generally correct, but it has some errors, fwiw.
Could you please point out any previous posts on this car for me? I’m new to the site and not having any luck.
Thank you
Brian

That's what I was thinking. But my car is also Hugger Orange which is on the trim tag and the original owner said it came in with black stripes and he had ordered white. He had the dealer repaint the stripes white and there is no reference to black stripes on the broadcast sheet. So it still makes me wonder how the car was really painted at the factory.
