Should be glued to the booklet, last inside page. Everything reads in mirror image. It should have the origonal owners name on it.

yeah, no problem. I think I have them, but I need to double check them when I get the car in the light. Out of curiosity, why are you interested in my #'s?

No problem Steve. I don't always watch this topic grouping very closely.

Joel,
We realized that a lot of info could be gained from recording/ documenting 1st gen cars. We have about 2700 vehicles in our database and it is one of the sources of data that fuel our research. Our data submission page http://www.camaros.org/researchdata.shtml has more info, but basically, your data is kept confidentioal and is not distributed. The more complete the data is, the better our research results. And record mundane details like wheel codes and booster dates. I maintain and add the data (and spend many hours doing so). My other project has been making a broadcast sheet decoder.
All gratis.

I got the #'s!!
Here they are.
Feel free to decode them. I did not post the orrigonal owner or address for obvious reasons. Our family has known him and the car for years and I'm sure he doesn't want us posting his address.

check your 1237, probably 12437
69 - Model Year = 1969
1 - General Motors Division - 1 = Chevrolet Motor Division
2 - Car Series - 2 = Camaro
37 - Body Style - 37 = coupe (67=convertible)
NOR - Assembly Plant - N=Norwood, Ohio (L=Los Angeles)
126457 - Norwood body number assigned to that body by the Fisher Body plant. It helps track the car through the plant. This number will never match the VIN.

715 - Interior Trim Code - Blue standard
71 71 - Body Color Code - LeMans Blue, no vinyl top

09C - Build Date - 09 = Sept., C = 3rd week of month, since this is a 687273 it was built in 1969 (late in the production, rather than 1968)
X77D80- Style Trim Group
X77 - Base car with Special Performance Equipment(Z28)
D80 - Air Spoiler Equipment (when used - not all cars built with spoilers were coded)
think all this info is close, if i'm wrong, i'm sure someone will correct me. sounds like you have a very nice blue z/28 with a lot of documentation.

The 9 on the POP after the axle code is the month. The 1 and 3 at the end are probably power disc brakes.
Or does it have power steering?

All the drivetrain codes should match the #'s on the POP. The # on the trans should also have a letter after it indicating M20,21, or 22. The rearend code will have a # after it for the shift.

Does it have a tach (with or without guages)?

Thanks.
Nice to have documentation!!
