With "original paint" it must have received a prototype nose stripe  :o

Originality / Re: Rosette shape variances in 67

It's a spot where the dealer could stamp the vehicle (D)elivery (D)ate.  From what I've seen, few used it.  There's a thread here or on TC site.

Agree the numbers seem off, especially the 3905572.  3939198 superseded the 3859194 shown in the 67 AIM, around 2/69.  Can't say for sure as my car is in resto, but looking at the 3939198, my disc car with 3905572 seemed to be a little taller, slightly curved, and skinnier at the base.  Dimensions for 3939198 are given as 1x1-7/8x2-15/64.  I'll check, but not sure if I have any pics.

Restoration / Re: gasket between the carburettor and the aircleaner

I think it was around mid-model year 67 the gasket was added.  I believe indicated under UPC K19 or 24 in the AIM.

Here are pics, repop is on the left.  There is no glue behind the original mirror, just a light "ungray"area that feels slightly higher than the gray when you run a fingernail across.

I bought a repop mirror recently, and there were noticeable differences.  The gray day/night lever was different shape, the lettering was different, the ribs on the case were not stamped the same, and the mount arm was  different at the end.  I'm now going to send mine original in for restoration.  I started taking the original apart and will post some pictures tonight.

 A non Z-28, 67 car with discs would use the 14x6 inch DG rally wheels

Originality / Re: 68 Heater Hose AC bracket Location

It's shown in the 67 AIM on UPC C60, Sheet D4, the top V8 sketch, item #8.  For 68 it's same UPC C60, but Sheet D5.  It bolts to the bottom right hole of the compressor front mount flange, then to the bottom left hole of the front bracket the compressor mounts onto.

I believe you indicated earlier that you are in Peru.  I would recommend a more modern system such as Vintage Air, over the original system.  Parts and repair will be easier to obtain, and there might also be regulatory considerations for your country.  The original system can be converted to run on R134a, but any needed original component rebuild and shipping are costly, even when using the original R12 refrigerant.

Might be similar to part #34 in this Craftsman push mower parts diagram, or something along that line.

Doesn't look familiarto me.  Almost looks like a crank handle for a screw jack.
