Originality / Re: L35 Dipstick Color Code
« on: September 17, 2018, 03:04:06 PM »
Dipsticks were a commodity and had multiple suppliers (two main ones, IIRC).
So even if one vendor was primarily used in a plant, the other vendor also supplied the plant too.....

Early vs late. But they often don't define when.....

It's an original pacer tag. BB 4-speed too. Factory replica with the blue stripe.
That VIN matches the tag. 
If I'm understanding, the VIN and tag are on a shell, but you don't think either are original to the shell, but probably off another wrecked shell (that may be gone).

Let the flaming begin. ( Should read discussion ensues)
And I appreciate where the discussion headed..... I don't think this is an elitist site, nor should it be.

VIN's were plant and vehicle line specific.
Ramp-up - they just couldn't turn on a switch and build a new model at full speed.

I wouldn't buy without having someone who is Camaro-savy with me. Too much at stake.
They were asking $90K, so turning down $65K is no surprise.

Clearly it had some style trim added. And who knows what parts are original on the 350 engine.
The price for Z28 is $506 - it would be one of the first Z's with spoilers included.

If you want a manual and it has a 12 bolt, that adds value.......

Pad stamp is good, IMO. Feel free to get second opinions.....

Yeah, but you got no answers before. ;)
Remember, it's always a ramp-up, especially a new body style in a plant.
Your car was built about the 7th or 8th day of production. The low body # is because it's a convertible with dlx interior - see the body # article

Hate to say, but the trans looks OK.
Cast date is perfect for the block date. But no pics of the pad makes me think it's been decked....
No tag pic?
Car was on ebay several months ago too.

Sometimes they were just looking at the option list. 'Hey, I'll take the better brakes'. Then it comes in and they are shocked at the price. Happened more than once....

There's no reason not to post the numbers, if you want good answers.

>There is some discrepancy about the rear axles used in Camaro Super Sports.
This should say 1969 SS's. The documentation is clear for 67-68 - they used 12-bolts.

I emailed the writer, haven't heard back.....
