    Hi,

    I am looking at a Camaro with the VIN ending:
    N507251

    The sequence number are supposed to start with 100001 in 1971.
    So to me this is a pretty late built car?
    Should be the 407250 buillt car for that year in the Norwood plant, shouldn't it?

    Cars has the correct suffix code CGP for a 4-speed but a buillt date of the engine from august 20th (V0820).

    VIN is not stamped in the same position as the suffix code.

    Is there a possibility that the "high" VIN from the dash still could work with that assembly date?

    Best regards

    Carsten

    Early build... September of 1970.

    The sequence numbers started with "N500001".
    Reference: https://nastyz28.com/camaro/camaro71.html

    Check the trim tag, it will tell you the month/week it was built.
    (4th week of March in this example.)

    The last 6 of my Van Nuys build 71 is 502545 with a build date of 09-70 I’m assuming it might be an early build 71

    08E would be the last partial week of August that would include August 30-September 5 of 1970.
