The X crayon mark is usually found behind the pass side of back seat, near where the vinyl overhang of the package tray is glued.

Not following you on the inline shifter. That to me refers to a tunnel that has been cut on the side.

Has your original trunk weatherstrip has been replaced? If not, there should be signs of the black paint underneath the strip if it originally was a 396 SS.

Does the rear end date code line up with the build date?

Pretty easy to tell if quarters have been replaced, rarely does anyone put back all those spot welds. If your car has no trim it should be easy to tell around the wheel openings.

How about posting some pictures?

Just like jdv69z said about looking on the inside of quarter panels for filled holes. What I would do is remove the black plastic vent in the door jam and look in.

General Discussion / Re: Radio Capacitor on coil bracket

Thanks everyone that responded.

The '67-'68 Camaro's had the capacitor on the coil bracket and if the they had the AM-FM upgrade they received the extra capacitor on the blower motor.

Because the '69 Camaro had the capacitor moved to the voltage regulator and still has the extra capacitor on the blower motor for AM-FM, I am convinced that there were no extra capacitors used.

The radio installation instructions for '69 Camaro's and the assembly manual does not show a capacitor on the coil bracket. This leads me to believe there were no capacitors used on the '69 Camaro coil bracket.

The '298 coil was used on the flat hood Z28 with the standard coil bracket. The '270 coil was used with the angled bracket to clear the ducted hood air cleaner base on the Z/28.

I have never seen one on a '69 Camaro that came from the factory with AM radio. Not sure if any '69 Camaro's got the coil bracket capacitor that is why I am inquiring about the FM radio. All AM, along with the AM-FM cars came with the voltage regulator capacitor.

If you have AM-FM you have an added capacitor between the blower motor wiring and the blower motor. Just want to know if anyone here has an original car with factory AM-FM to see if there is one attached to the coil bracket.

I parted about fifteen '69 Camaros in the late seventies and early eighties and have coil brackets left over from then that do not have any threaded coil bracket holes.

There must be owners on this site that have original AM cars that can verify they do not have the coil bracket capacitor to clear this matter up.

General Discussion / Radio Capacitor on coil bracket
« on: January 27, 2018, 08:58:37 PM »
Was a capacitor used on the coil bracket in 1969? I am sure it wasn't used on AM radios, but on FM radios did they get one on the coil bracket along with the blower motor capacitor? Seems to me that '70 cars had them on the bracket, but I thought that was due to the windshield antenna. Can someone clarify this for me? Anyone with an original '69 Camaro with FM radio that can check for me? Thanks, Warren

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Crossram manifold

Crossram ad says it was being prepared for a 1968 Sebring race. I would think the matched 824 carb dates are fine. Race date was March 23, 1968.

Maintenance / Re: '69 Camaro SS convertible heater core replacement
« on: December 01, 2017, 03:00:48 PM »

If you chose to replace the heater core be sure to keep the original as they are stamped with a letter code for the month and the last digit of the year of manufacture on lower side of tank.

I just had my original Big Block heater core cleaned and pressure checked by a guy in Massachusetts. You can send yours out here if you cannot get it repaired locally.
