Originality / Breather elbow hose
« on: April 12, 2024, 01:43:58 PM »
I need some help. Im working on getting some things back original on my 69 Z. I have original breather base and VC elbow. Have an original NOS 3932336 connecting hose. AIM shows the bend back. Most all restored cars have it forward. I canít get it to fit either way. Which is right?

« on: March 11, 2024, 01:17:24 PM »
Has anyone else recently gotten this flag when opening CRG website? My work computer started flagging it about 2 months ago and our firewall will not let me login. Phone shows same not secure ( which means the security certificate has expired), however I can login on my phone. Not sure if itís me or the websiteís security certificate is actually expired.

Decoding/Numbers / Two tone trim tag
« on: March 09, 2023, 01:47:21 PM »
Thoughts on this trim tag? Local car for sale. Wear matches the car but rivets just bug me. Ill get for sure but looks like 01C or 04C. May look at it this weekend.

V0602DZ. Early June. VIN appears to be July. Hard to tell but I donít see the factory 202 valve machining in the heads. Iíll let the experts weigh in on the stamps.

Originality / 69 Headlight Bezels

What was the original factory finish on the 69 Headlight bezel screws? Zinc, Black or stainless? I'm missing a couple and all of my others are rusty. Finally got my black grill painted Argent Silver! looks much better. Thanks.

Decoding/Numbers / Mecum 1969 Z28
« on: July 29, 2021, 08:43:00 PM »
Have a friend looking at this car in Orlando now. What's the opinion on the tag being legit? Especially with the 720 orange houndstooth? Right off the bat I see a style trim conflict.

Decoding/Numbers / Help Identify Radiator
« on: March 30, 2021, 05:40:10 PM »
Help me on this one. I took this off my 68 about 15 years ago and sat back in garage. I started piecing together what that car was originally and was looking at the tank codes. It looked to me to be the factory radiator or had been on the car forever. BBC car everywhere else and this was a 4 core with auto trans cooler. IL and ON tank codes. I cant find ON code anywhere?. I still have the radiator and am tracking the car down. Thanks.

Originality / 69 Master Cylinder finish
« on: March 02, 2021, 02:09:20 PM »
Just got this back from the resto shop. Does it look close to factory original 1969 GM finish / color? Seems a little glossy to me. I have found several threads on color / coating and they seem all over the place. Several different opinions. If anyone remembers or has original photos much appreciated. Thanks.

Is the "GM official production date" on the NCRS shipping report the date the car was finished assembled?, left Norwood? or arrived at the shipping dealer?
