How to Find Out If a Camaro Is an SS by the VIN Number


The Chevy Camaro Super Sport (SS) was produced from 1967 to 1972, again from 1996 to 2002, and has been reintroduced for the 2010 and 2011 model years. The SS is a performance package signifying some body styling options as well as distinctive engines and transmissions. Identification of the the SS option is possible through the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on some early-generation models as well as in later models. The SS option was not available between 1972 and 1996, and the Camaro itself was not produced from 2003 to 2010.

Step 1

Standing outside the car, look in through the driver’s-side windshield at the left corner of the dashboard. The VIN will be found on a stamped metal strip.
