I would expect the November of 69 built car to have the 6500 redline tach... There have been a few 6000 red 7000 high tachs found in July August September of 69 built cars if I am not mistaken.

James I have seen a few, and in fact my orange z (9A of 69 ) has a 600-7000 tach and is dated for the car.

On a somewhat related topic, were there any internal changes to the 302 when they changed from the 6-8 to 6.5-8 tach?  I'm thinking screw in studs and guideplates?  Did the 302 ever have screw in studs and guideplates?  I seem to read differing statements on this.

No and no.

Congrats!! Danny, that's a very nice car. Love lemans blue, and glad everything worked out....

I can tell you it was an L35, auto with endura bumper, It sold out of Peleshok Motors and first owner purchased it in May 1970.

I actually had a chance to buy the Mosport 69 Camaro Pace Car in the mid 90's. I even received a copy of a letter from the track & dealer confirming the cars authenticity as the pace car. The gentlemen who was selling it was from Canada but retired in FLa. He ended up giving/selling it to his son. It wasn't an L78 and think it was an L35. I'll look for any docs I have with information.

I've had a couple of issues: my Pace Car had some obscure dealer (Max Meyers Motors)in IN listed. The original owners son recalled it being sold at McManus Chev, in Chicago. I later found a window sticker for a car built same time frame, same zone and dealer code and McManus was listed. Yes the microfiche was read incorrectly.

I've also had a report with zone and dealer code "but no further info available". I did a lot of research and found the dealer info and provided it to them and they update.

I found the service they provide excellent and very accommodating.

On the feature page pics, the 1969 RS/Z looks like my car black car. I'm not positive but, I'd bet that was taken at Carlisle in 2004ish. If someone can confirm that's my car I will post more pics.

Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 spare wheel

Now I see the bb, thanks. Does this rim look like it ever had a tire mounted on it or secured in a trunk?

Here's a Day 1 takeoff spare that was reportedly removed from the trunk of a 69 Z/28 that got a mag wheel change when brand new. The originals went home with the owner and were secured away in the basement until I got this wheel earlier this year. It's a factory spare dated K-1-9-4-18 and in mint untouched original condition. Obviously it was grey and not painted like the other wheels off the car?

A couple of observations looking at the grey painted spare pictured. I can't see how a tire was ever mounted on it (no bead mark)and there are no jack base plate marks, chip paint or abrasions when it was secured in the trunk. Also no balance/ run-out bead/marking on the rim. Certainly we've learned anything is possible....
