It should be noted that this information pertains to Chevelles only. Other Chevrolet lines (Camaro, Nova, etc.) and their plants may differ. For example, a 1969 full size car with a 350 V8 from Van Nuys has been reported with the partial VIN on the oil filter boss and other Chevrolet models and/or plants may exhibit the same properties.
