45th Ann. Edition Build Number

According to this forum there were only 628 of my cars built and I am interested in know what number of the 628 was mine built and what date?

Will the vin tell me or do I need to dig deeper?

Thanx in advance

You would probably have to get a list of all the vins, and then find yours in it to get that information.

I contacted chevrolet today and they said they would get me the information and email it to me.

I will let everyone know what luck I have as soon as they get back to me.

Thanx

So here is where we stand... should I push them? If so how and in what direction?

Perhaps request when the run started and how many were produced a day...

Or is there a build sheet hidden in the car somewhere like I know they are there BUT will they give me any further info?

Dear Fred,

I did contact our internal resource about your production sequence and date questions and was able to get some information. I did verify that your Camaro was built on 5/9/2012 but when it comes to the specific build number out of 628, GM has only just uploaded 2011 model facts and will most likely discontinue the practice of sequencing limited models for future vehicles and will just have production totals. Due to how fast the vehicles are produced and the various locations, it is getting more difficult to determine the specific number of which one comes off the line first. I do apologize that this information wasn't what you had hoped but your vehicle is still one of a select few.

If you wish to contact me, I can be reached by responding to this email or via phone at 1-866-790-5700, extension 40820. Please reference your case number 71-1194491597.

For other inquiries and concerns, you may also contact Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center at 1-866-790-5600 and request for immediate assistance. Customer Relationship Specialists are available Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Eastern Time.

Thank you.

You can try to push but even with some "connections" I was unable to obtain this info or even just the number of vehicles that were produced in my particular trim level... Both sources stated the lack of such record keeping post bailout...

If you could get a spreadsheet of all the VINs made for the 2012 model year, you could then sort it out.

There is a vin breakdown of what all the stuff means so I think it could be done.

So here is what I just sent them;

Hello again,

I am a member of an online forum that specializes in the 45th anniversary camaro and there is more than just me requesting this info.

One member says that if we can get the list of serialized VIN number's of the production run we can narrow down the date and build number of each one.

Would it be possible to get a print out of the vin's?

If not, perhaps you can see the date the first vin was produced and the date the last vin was produced and that would get us that much closer to narrowing down a production number. And what the first and last vin number is then we can deduce from there where our individual vin numbers fall...

There has to be a sequential order?

Thank you in advance,

-=Fred=-

Thanx that link will help a bunch

What I need is a VIN from a convertible 45th anniversary edition v6 automatic which is what I have ... that way I have my build date and if I can see another we can get pretty close to the number as only 628 were produced...

Thank you again

Dear Fred,

I did look into your request and I am sorry to report that a VIN list is not available and that more thorough special edition information typically becomes accessible the following model year. However in this case, there is no firm date of when further details will be distributed. I do apologize about the situation but I have this documented and if you want to check in at a later time, you are more than welcome to do that.

If you wish to contact me, I can be reached by responding to this email or via phone at 1-866-790-5700, extension 40820. Please reference your case number 71-1194491597.
