Decoding/Numbers / Re: Documentation for 9N657909
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:56:33 PM »
What a joke! All that documentation has been modified. Ray Charles could see that....

Both of my MSO sheets (both Z's) are copies of microfiched documents; they are more distinct by far than this cobbled up mess.

Regards,
Steve
.    Can I get microfiche copies of mine?

Some of you may remember a few years ago that I listed an '69 L78 block that turned out to belong to an existing car - the current car owner and I could never make the deal to exchange it, so it still sits in the garage waiting the day when I can complete it and use it in my own L78 (which has a badly damaged original block). Not everyone places a large premium on numbers matching motors for one reason or another, I guess.

On the other hand, I have a VIN numbered MO on the stand (that I wish I could find the Z it goes with), posted in the Orphans section with the rest of the forlorn orphans for a long time now, still no response. I wish I had the national database access that law enforcement uses to use for detective work on ones like this - it would be a modern-day treasure hunt for sure.

Regards,
Steve

Please tell me the MO you speak of is 18N467701 ?   ????   ????????????      ? Please?? Lol

A few years back I had a 67 Corvette 327/300HP HE long block obtained in the early 80's. I was about ready to junk it 3 years ago for scrap metal except for the oil pan & some other items but a NCRS judge friend insisted on putting it on the NCRS orphans list so I gave him the information even though I am a NCRS member. Reason I did personally was I had been told years prior that 67 had been turned into a big block car and assumed incorrectly it was a waste of time. Well he puts the info on the NCRS website and bingo, about 6 months later I got a call from my friend that a person in Canada called him and said it was out of his car. His car was born with the long block I had but he confirmed his car now had been changed into a L71 big block. LOL It apparently had changed hands many times over the years and he said he knew when purchased it was not a real L71 car. Well he purchased it and it now resides in Canada with the Corvette it was born with. His plan was to assemble/restore and place it on an engine stand with the car. The big block was going to stay where it was.
The reason I had obtained the aforementioned HE long block was to possibly put in our 67 Corvette since it was originally a low horse 327, but it had a DZ block in it when we purchased in the early 80's. Since it was an early DZ block the vin was right there on the pad and I was able to find the owner In 2008. He purchased the car in 1981 with a 350 in it. That engine was also reunited with its original mate so I'm two for two and both were tied in one way or another with our 67 Corvette which we still have!

Thanks for sharing chick

Does anyone else ever look through the orphans section that's appropriate for your model and leave depressed? Lol I look everyday for anything that might be associated by vin to my car and there is nothing, yet there's thousands of items with everyone else's vins.....   I'm just crying in my cereal!  Thanks for listening.

Originality / GT stamps
« on: November 25, 2017, 11:12:59 PM »
I was stripping the paint off of my spark plug towers and noticed it's stamped GT in very small letters? I know the alt bracket has the GT.   Is this common? Is there a company GT that makes brackets for GM back then?

Restoration / Leaf spring restoration
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:15:26 PM »
Has anyone tried dissassembling their leaf packs and cleaning and rebuilding the pack? I think I want to but not sure the new clamps will look right or how hard they are to reclamp?  Or should I just leave them as is?

68 ragtop, we have or at least had lots of pick your part type yards in texas, my point is if you look on ebay or craigslist and come across tags for sale the LOS tags are more often what you see, rather than NOR tags..... my question is if the LOS only accounts for roughly 25% of total camaro production and NOR the other 75%  it seems you'd see more  NOR tags!    its just an observation and i'm just curious why that is?  it doesn't matter just was curious if there was a probable reason for this or it just is what it is. lol

Lol no you don't have to hold it.... I read it but in my mind I'm trying to understand it.  I'm not sure I understand why it might be off by nearly 6 to 8 weeks. It almost makes me think my cars tampered with is all.

Thx ZLP, in my mind if LOS only produced 25% of all camaros roughly that makes me wonder even more why all the tags for sale seem to be LOS tags.

I also saw that chart for " end of month production and vin" that's pretty coo. I had not ever seen that. Naturally I tried to find my vin.   8N467701 it falls in a weird spot for my July second week car? Ncrs paper says July 10th and by the  chart it should be a May or June car if I'm figuring it correctly? Is that possible or normal?

Out of ignorance and curiosity..... These tags are all over ebay from time to time and nearly always from LOS cars.
I guess I'm curious why?  Did LOS produce exponentially more vehicles than NOR or are they all for sale from the California area or ???
