Adams' Apple said: If your 1974 Corvette has one of the following VIN #s, I can hook you up the the feller that has the original Build Sheet for it. It will be up to you to contact him, and make whatever deal to get it.





This would make a great study of "early" GMAD style buildsheets for 1974 owners and capturing many codes unique to 1974 that may be missing among 1974 code data bases.

Appreciate any insight or information on my  '68 Rally Red Roadster VIN: 194678S419264.

I bought in Oct. and have mileage and sales documentation going back to 1999.  Have spoken to last 2 dealers and 2 owners.  I'm continuing to look for any information that I can get for my '68s Fact Booke.

Sorry Rick...I'm not seeing that VIN listed. Like everyone else...I can find cars a few numbers from yours, but not YOURS! Cry

I check every once and a while, since more get posted every day, it seems. Ya never know...all of ours may show up some day. Thumbs Up

Thanks for looking for me.  I knew this was a long shot.  Do you keep a list and check it against the occassional new list postings? 
 
I can't imagine how those whose have been found, feel.......WoW! More to the story!
 
Mine was professionally appraised at $25k in 1999 and I was given that appraisal package as part of the documentation. I spoken to both of the owners since '99 and neither did anything but drive it once in a while and between the 2 of them only put 8,563 miles over the last 15 yrs.  It looks as good today as it did in the pictures in the '99 appraisal package.
 
When the weather (my garage) warms up, I'm going to be all over it looking for any extra buildsheet that may have been stached away in some odd place.  Thanks for the C3VR vettesters who have shared where they have found theirs.

I do not have a list personally, but there is a section on the NCRS Tech Discussion Board specifically for folks with paperwork for other cars to list it. I check it every now and then to see what's new.....still hoping to find something on my '74. I have the ownership info back to the original owner, but he's not interested in talking to me about the car, so I can't get anything from him. Cry

Thanks I went to the NCRS site and found the build sheet page.  When I went to the page, I was informed that I would have a 30 day free trial membership to use the site.
 
I plan to monitor this page in the future just to check this page.  So I guess I'll have to become a member and pay whatever the fee is to continue to monitor the build sheet postings.
 
Thanks again for your insight and information

The NCRS TDB is for members only, tho you can view a lot of it as a "Guest" for 30 days. Membership in NCRS will get you a lot more than just access to the TDB....well worth the admission price, imho. Thumbs Up

You're probably right, it's just with NCM, NCCC, Local Club, etc fees you keep laying out money for all these corvette associated sources.
 
As the C3VR has been so valuable with the members offering information freely, I was thinking of Upgrading my membership which will be an additional cost. 
 
My '68 is stock and for this first year I'll struggle to keep it as such.  I'm looking at all the cool vettes on the C3VR and other places and see and read about things that I want to do to make mine look and perform better i.e. side pipes, upgraded brakes, suspension, maybe a sell my good running L-79 tuned by Lars and replace it with a LS3 vette engine.  I love the '68 but after this coming 2014, I don't know if I can resist the temptation to make it the best it can be!

Is your build date June 27? It should be...that's only 170 cars before mine! Tongue

June 26th it is! Just proves that the build date is only "approximate", and the "Birthday Book" isn't always correct, even tho we know it is just an educated guess, going by production records, and other info.
Thanks for posting the trim tag, too. Big smile

btw...that's the same color as my '74. Thumbs Up

I like your Texas-sized view.  Very nice ride - looks like a lot of fun and gives me hope.  This is my first corvette - I have a lot to learn, but I'm really having a good time (so far).  Got the body off and am starting on the frame as soon as I get the engine pulled.  Since the engine block is the only thing that is not original, I'm struggling to decide where to go once I get to the point of no return on colors - both interior and exterior.  At least I have some time.

Wow! Is that what a trim tag is supposed to look like!?  Mine was a mess, having been painted around multiple times.

 LOL LOL LOL

Adam, on your '79, the trim tag WAS painted to begin with...I think they started doing that in '77 or '78. The older cars had the tag installed after the body was painted, but before final assembly. The later cars had the tag installed before paint. Thumbs Up

And you are correct....that IS a really nice trim tag!! Most of them by now are all scratched up from cleaning, and from being painted over after the fact. Ouch

I have a "68". Would they have any listing on the build sheet for my car. I see they had replaced the tank. I contacted the previous owner you told me he never looked for the build sheet when he changed the tank.
