General Discussion / 1969 Camaro Z11 Pace car

I was curious everyone's thought on the is 69 pace car, and if the car and tag looked legit:

Originality / 1969 Camaro trim tag legit?
« on: February 21, 2023, 06:52:20 PM »
I saw this car listed recently and while I know its is not an original JL8 car, but I am trying tot get clarification on the trim tag, and if it looks like a legit X33 car.

Not great pics, console gauges were likely added since there is not a clock present.
VIN : 124379N635777

Originality / 1969 Z/28 Original Carb bracket
« on: February 10, 2023, 05:58:34 PM »
I have seen this PCV bracket ( on the left in the pic by the choke) on a couple of 69Z cars, and I have not been able to find evidence of them being a factory item, but I thought I would throw it out there just to get consensus from others in the know. I do see a similar bracket offered on the L78 in the AIM, but not the 69Z

General Discussion / 1969 Z/28 on Mecum

I was looking closer at this 69Z and the putty on the rivets for the trim tag looked suspect to me. I was curious to get others opinions:


General Discussion / 1969 Z/28 10 10 car on BAT
« on: October 26, 2022, 06:58:49 PM »
I just saw this 69Z pop up on BAT.
VIN: 124379N622010
The trim tag appears ok to me at first glance, but I was hoping it was in the CRG system. I was really intrigued with the stamps on this one. The motor has obviously been decked so could be a re-stamped pad, but the partial VIN in the rough casting looks a bit different.  it appears the partial VIN on the trans the 6 is upside down? Also the rear end stamp looks like BB? or is it a bad BS stamp?


Decoding/Numbers / 1969 Z "matching numbers"
« on: August 29, 2022, 05:31:03 PM »
I saw this Z that the seller is claiming to be numbers matching, but without any pics to support the claim. Right away the trim tag caught my eye, which has clear deviation from other cars that I have in my own file.  I would like others opinions and insight are welcome here on the tag.

I also see many 12B cars, but can't recall or have any 12C, or 12D. Was there a Christmas break, or is there in fact many 12C, and 12D cars out there?


VIN: 124379N562006

General Discussion / 1969 Z 10 10 car?
« on: June 11, 2022, 04:49:32 PM »
I saw this recent listing, and super hard to make out 10 10 tag, and I was curious if it is in the registry, and if was originally a 10 10 69Z with the RS from the factory. thanks

Just saw this 1968 302 MO long block listed on Facebook. It appears to be partial vin:
18L347567 with a date stamp that appears to be VO6I9MO. (not sure about the 9)
so it would have been for a 1968 Camaro with VIN 124378L347567

Seller is Robbie Shartle out of Meadville PA. He is asking $6k manifold to pan.

Foreign Camaros / 1969 Z/28 from France

A pretty cool car from France. I don't see a close up of the trim tag, but they did provide the France inspection plate :


Originality / Original colors of 1st gen Camaros
« on: February 04, 2022, 07:07:10 PM »
So I have been looking at the CRG exterior paint page and the percentages of color used. I know GM used various names of colors, marketing and repackaging cars to look or sound new I am sure is part of this. Or a different name just for the Corvette buyer. I am specifically curious about the color themselves though. For instance was 67 Matador Red, the same as Bolero Red? or maybe they were different but Bolero Red may have been the same as Garnet red? or all three were different shades. I don't know if buyer tastes changed but I do see the percentages of colors change year to year and was curious if it was marketing or if it was the real color(s) that changed year to year. thanks  (I am not sure if this has been discussed before)

Originality / 1969 Camaro PPG glass examples
« on: December 26, 2021, 12:06:43 AM »
I was trying to identify some original PPG glass. I went into the CRG research and saw many examples of LOF original glass, but as of yet no pics of the PPG. Hopefully some members can contribute pics to start the PPG etchings examples. thanks :)

1969 - Orphans / DZ block with partial vin
« on: December 18, 2021, 05:56:59 PM »
I saw this ad on BAT for a late 69Z for sale it has a transplanted DZ block from June with partial vin that appears to be 19N*83008. Maybe you guys can have a look and see it more clearly than I can. I was thinking 19N683008 ? So it would be for a VIN 124379N683008.

General Discussion / 1968 Z/28 Trim tag reproduction
« on: November 12, 2021, 10:50:17 PM »
Well what looked like a great restoration and very cool optioned 68Z, with a 4.56 option on the window sticker, disappointed me today. At first glance the tag had been off the car and then looking closer the tag has been replaced  :(: And I have also gotten word the window sticker is also a fake.  :( :(

Currently at 65k, hope buyers research more.

General Discussion / Warren Malkin passing
« on: October 12, 2021, 12:47:35 AM »
I was sad to learn today that Warren Malkin passed away. I had corresponded with over the years, and more recently regarding the red Z/28 tag he had in one of his unrestored 69 Z/28. Warren was a good guy to talk with, and had a great passion for the cars. Always the perfectionist, in trying to match the right parts with the right car. He also was able to show me other original examples of rear end stampings similar to mine. A great good resource and great guy.

Thanks Warren for all the help.
God speed my friend.
