Originality / ‘67 10 Bolt Posi Diff Lube Tag
« on: March 04, 2022, 04:42:24 PM »
Anyone have a factory 10 Bolt Posi in their ‘67? If so did it come with the stainless steel “…LIMTED SLIP DIFF. LUBE…” tag on one of the cover bolts or the red plastic “…POSI DIFF. LUBE” tag on the fill plug?
I had a 67 Firebird that came with a 3.55 Posi 10 Bolt back in 1982 and it had the SS tag attached to one of the cover bolts.

Originality / Rally Rim, ‘67 All Black
« on: April 27, 2021, 05:33:53 PM »
I recently picked up a ‘67 DA Rally Rim in what appears to be unmolested original black lacquer.
Has anyone ever seen a factory rally rim without the front painted silver?
Could it have been a factory spare for a ‘67 front disc brake car?

Maintenance / 69 Door Window Regulator Repair
« on: August 11, 2018, 08:14:42 PM »
Drivers door window on my 69 cranked down normally but was binding heavily on the way up. Per the Fisher Body Service Manual I removed the 2 lower sash channel cam stud nuts, isolating the window from the window regulator  and the window went up and down the track easily but the regulator was still difficult to crank up so I knew I had a bad regulator.

Removed the window regulator and after removing the high tension flat steel coil/spring drilled out the 3 rivets that hold the cup containing the splined shaft and drive gear, cleaned and inspected all the parts inside the cup and everything looks ok but I'm not sure about the stainless spring that goes inside the cup. One end has a small loop that goes towards the bottom of the cup but the top end has a jagged end like maybe the tip of the spring broke off.

Is there supposed to be a bend or another hook on the top end of it? I didn't find any broken fragment on disassembly either.
I've never tore into one of these so not sure what that spring should look like.
I found a couple images online of a regulator spring for different applications and they show a bend at the top end of the spring.

1969 - Orphans / DZ Block V1121DZ?
« on: May 06, 2014, 11:19:34 PM »

Looking at what remains of the vin stamp it's either 19N555219 or 19N556219, both indicate a Dec of '68 Norwood built Z, 551863-569987.

Block date code is K148 which is Nov 14, '68 so date stamp on block could appropriately be V1121DZ, Nov 21.

Anybody know what a "V" in box 147 "Trim" of a '69 Chassis Broadcast Copy stand for?
Is that Green?
How is 723 midnight green specified?

Originality / Exhaust hangar bracket

Did dual exhaust cars get the single exhaust hangar bracket that's welded to the drivers side underbody just forward of the gas tank?

Originality / LOS/VNY 69 Z28 cowl paint
« on: June 08, 2009, 03:51:57 PM »
I recently saw an original paint Lemans blue L.A. Z28 with white stripes and the whole cowl area was white from the top edge of the firewall back. This appeared to include the windshield wiper linkage as well. This was a mid to late April car.
Jerry's book mentions white striped cars were painted white under the cowl grill.
My question is, would a January built L.A. dover white car with black stripes receive black paint under the cowl grill? Was the wiper linkage also painted?
