O8A should be the last week for 1970 production. His VIN 591698 is close to the end of production. The last Norwood car that year had VIN 592248, so 550 more cars were built after this one.

What I was making reference to is the number of things missing or altered on the car... it is obvious that many things have been swapped or reconstructed on that car.

Yes, several things wrong?

The car in the auction from post #1 has several things that don't add up.... It has a 3:31 12 bolt posi that was only used in the SS and I can tell it originally wasn't a Muncie trans car. The motor appears to be restamped.

I guess the owner isn't claiming it's a real Z28 or SS but rather just a nice 1970 Camaro.

Gary,

The highest VIN so far that I have in my survey is 124870N92081 with a "08A" body build date. What is your source for VIN 592248 as being the last 1970 Norwood Camaro made? Do you know the VIN of the last 70 Van Nuys Camaro?

The last Van Nuys VIN for 1970 should be 532651. If you add the 32,651 Van Nuys cars and the 92,248 cars, you get 124,899 1970 Camaros, but the published numbers for 1970 production is 127,901, so it doesn't add up exactly. We are missing 2 cars somewhere.

So, the numbers I have are close, but probably not 100% accurate. Maybe someone can come up with those 2 missing cars somewhere.

Years ago, the US Camaro Club published these numbers, and they are still the best I've found.
