Restoration / Original Dealer License Frame
« on: October 25, 2010, 12:34:41 AM »
I have an original California black plate Camaro with its original dealer plate frames. The front one is broken with the bottom half missing.
Found one on Ebay..
 $ that right??? I would think this is something I would want for a total resto. Is this over kill for a resto???
 Here's a photo link to dealership.   I think it's pretty cool.

Originality / POP mistakes

I think I have Camaro Fever.................... again! ( I'm hot, don't sleep well, grease under the nails)
Have a Norwood X-55 with an automatic.My protect-o-plate says for rear axle, BV0501G.That reads to me as a 4.10 posi. But all I've seen is 4.10's as an option in 4-speed cars only.Original owner (uncle) says he didn't order any options but base SS and 8-track( that's all he could afford)so any special option is out.I haven't seen the actual stamp (yet), but I know I've smoked that one-legger before, and there is no limited slip decale in the trunk( original spare though) and it is a 12-bolt. Is this a common error? What would be the default ratio for a SS-350 with an automatic?Thanks

Originality / '68 carb on a '69 build?

Stormy California day; been out playin' in the garage. ;D
I have a Norwood built ( 05D ), everything seems to check out except that front engine pad (reference here)
Block is a 010 with a D 28 9 cast date
Intake is a 3927184 with a D 28 9 cast date
POP says carb source was Carter , which it is. The roll stamp says  7028212 with a M7  DH. I take that to mean a 1968 application for a 327/275 and 350/295 ; built in DEC 1967.

I believe this carb to be original to the car...but is that possible or within build " norms"? Could A Carter Quadrajet built in Dec. '67 been put on a car built in May '69?? I know engine line didn't care...broadcast said DH, they put a Any thoughts or information welcomed.

Originality / X-55 for the registry

Decoding/Numbers / Original L-48?

Long time browser, first time post. I have a since new(family)X-55 car; Vin 9N648878, 05D build. It's everything I wanted since I can remember, ( born in '69).I have the POP and everything checks except the motor and rear-end. I never found the rear-end codes but the POP says BV0501G. My uncle(original owner) says the only option he ordered was the Z-27 and U-57, so the POP must have been a mis-stamp 'cause all I could find was that rear-end was special ordered and only for a four-speed. Not a big deal, I'm sure they meant BM. ( I'll find the true code later)
 My real heart breakin' question is the motor, which at one time was rebuilt. The front pad has no stampings accept B U N K .

I shit you not.

The block is a 010 motor. I'm having trouble finding the build date cast, to help on the originality. Where is that?, for starters.
My NOR date of 05D seems to me that the partial VIN would be by the oil filter rough pad. I can't see any thing.If I ever find the partial Vin that matches it would still be a No. matching Camaro, right?, reguardless of the bullshit joker stamp.
Could the block been changed in a rebuild?? Is that a machine shop stamp for "don't use this block" ?? Thats what BUNK means to in " hey, buddy, that acid you sold me was BUNK!" 

 Any help would be much appreciated
