First Generation Chevy Camaro VIN Decode

Not much can be decoded from a 1967, 1968 or 1969 Chevy Camaro VIN. You can only determine the type of engine either 6 cylinder or V8, the year and the plant produced. You can not determine the exact engine installed in a first generation Chevy Camaro by the VIN. The 1967 Chevy Camaro was the only model to have the vehicle identification number (VIN) tag mounted to the door hinge pillar. VIN tags on later models are visible through the drivers side windshield. (See below for links to other years)

This information is complete and up to date to the best of our knowledge.
FACT: There is absolutely NO engine information contained in a Camaro VIN until 1972.
