VIN Search Help - '68 Camaro

I'm looking at a 68 Camaro. I'm thinking about buying it but I wanted to get as much accurate info as possible regarding specs, equipment, etc. I wasted $13.44 on the "Bumper" database advertised here on C5, but it only goes back as far as 1980. Of course, it doesn't tell you that up front.

Anyone know a site where I can get some specs from a known VIN? Thank you.

2013 1SS/RS Coupe L99, Stainless Power Works LT Headers, SCT X4 Custom Tune from RDP, CAI Inc. Air Intake w/ Apex Scoop, VMAX CNC Ported Throttle Body, Solo Axle-Back Exhaust w/ J-pipes, Apex Catch Can, Husky Splash Guards, Heritage Grille, 3D Carbon Rear Spoiler, Oracle Chrome Turn Signal Bulbs, GM Reverse Light Trim Billets, Gorilla Black Locking Lugs, Emblem Pros Retro SS Badges/Custom Retro SS Kickplates/Under-hood Bowtie, 35% window Tint, Nitto Motivo Tires (6-8-18)

Does the car have a build plate on it? They used to put a build sheet either over the
gas tank or, behind or under the rear seat.

I got my build sheet for my 2010 in the Chevy Customer Service chat box, requested
it by VIN. Don't think they'll have it for that age.

Bottom Line - Trust me.... The best place to get any real info is below.

Try this:

If they do not have anything, you will get a refund. This is all you can get. Worth $50 in my opinion.

The only place you will get any info on options for a 68 without the build sheet is the body tag under the hood. The VIN will tell you if it came with a V8 or Straight 6. If the third digit is a 3 it's a 6 cylinder. If it is 4, it's V8.
There is a fine line between hobby and obsession and I think I crossed it!!
