Restoration / Re: Repro vs. NOS spiral shock tube

Mike is there a lip around the bottom of the upper tube on the NOS shock? Seems to be a faint line there.

My 67 L35's have about half a blade (non-clutch blade) depth into the shroud area.
It may not look like enough but you can feel a strong pull of air in front of the radiator.
That's consistent with the '69 AIM, which shows indicatively the blades half in, half out of the shroud (UPC11/13, B4) if that helps.

And I think the first obscured digit in the VIN photo is a '4', making it 124379N5804xx.

Very pretty car James. Good shot of the LOS square mast jack and base, too.

01B X11 307 Car listed on ebay, seller discloses he searched to find a car with the right build date to match it's VIN with an X77 trim tag that he took off a wreck. Now selling openly as a project to clone a 307 into a Z/28.

Full VIN not supplied but does state: 124379N580xxx
Seller's description:
For your consideration is one of my projects that I have owned for 11 years. This Camaro is a Norwood X11 V8 car with all its original parts and drivetrain with all its VIN#'s intact. It has never been disassembled and has all correct date coded components and hardware including its original T3 headlights and intact seat-belts. Comes with an original Z28 rear bumper with original Z28 tall bumper guards. I searched many years for this build date of 01B to match a genuine authentic X77 Z28 Cortez Silver trim tag that I have personally owned since the mid 1980's as a teenager. The X77 was a total wreck of a shell at a junk yard back then and was crushed. My plans were to build a Cortez Silver X77 to the genuine original trim tag that matches the 01B date of this X11 all original unmolested Camaro.

The Genuine original X77 trim tag decodes to:
01B = Built second week of January
69-12437 = Coupe
NOR = Built in Norwood Ohio
711 = Standard Black Bucket Seats
69-69 Car Color Cortez Silver
X77 = Z28 without style trim

The original to the car X11 trim tag decodes to:
01B = Built second week of January
69-12437 = Coupe
NOR = Built in Norwood Ohio
52B = Car Color Garnet Red
X11 = Style Trim Group

The car needs the typical rust repair prone to Norwood cars. Floor pan, both rear quarters, lower doors.
Comes with an original Z28 rear bumper with correct original Z28 bumper guards
I have a clean, clear California title in hand in my name with a NON-OP status and actual mileage. Text only if needed to 8one8-3eight3-5one8zero
Car is also listed local to me in Los Angeles and I reserve the right to end auction at anytime if sold outside of Ebay.
If you are a Camaro enthusiast then you know the possibilities with this restoration project.
Complete VIN# and X77 trim tag body number will be disclosed after a 500 dollar deposit is funded.

Hang in there Shawn, am sure it's only a matter of time until Kurt and other knowledgeable (busy!) folk will comment

Good luck Phil!

Photo shows up, thanks for posting. I don't stray far from the '69 MY Camaros but there are very knowledgeable people here who will be able to advise on authenticity of that tag.
Just curious though, you posted a possible VIN matching to that tag, how did you determine that as a possibility? That car known to you?

^ for the '69 AIM, front carpets are UPC1/C3.

Can you post a picture of the tag?

Some of the interior was installed by Fisher Body and the rest by Chevrolet, so if you can't find it in the AIM, try the Fisher Body Manual. If you're specifically interested in the front carpet details, Pete's post above references the AIM.

Lloyd found a similar issue with HBC being unable to source a reproduction radiator core; Kurt confirmed who was the supplier to HBC:;all

You're welcome Mike; that Day 2 car is just so right, in every way.

Austin if you're not familiar with the car, there's a great thread about Grady's COPO over at - awesome workmanship and attention to detail by m22mike. URL is
Car was also featured in, and on the cover of, Muscle Car Review back in December 2017.

It may not need to be cut in two, but I figured doing that *might* allow the front carpet to be removed in the future without having to pull out the console again. Plus it would probably make the carpet installation/trimming job easier - I'll most likely be doing it by myself.
