That sheathing is also used in 69 for the rear speaker wiring under the metal wiring guards.

Balancer was the first thing that caught my eye... :)

That and the need/reason for having reproduction broadcast sheets....
I've seen a few and they are not even close.

Google 'camaro tail panel black' images and lots of pics show up.

I know that orders were not released by the central office, for production, until all parts were on hand... 
No. The orders were released to the plant and the assy plant schedulers were the ones that released them to production when the parts were on hand.

They did weekly forecasts. xxx JK engines, xx JH, etc. One week would generally be the same volumes as the next week, so there weren't many surprises.
The last weeks get tighter - the plant wants to run out of parts as the last car comes down the line. Not too hard on fenders, but more complicated on wiring harnesses and other option dependent items. As Bill mentions, the last vehicle orders were counted and matched with inventory and component orders. They knew exactly how many JH engines they needed 49 years ago (to the day!) and had them on hand to finish the 69 MY.

btw, it should be a chrome shifter ball since the pattern is already on the console. :)

11 41 is the tooth count. 41 / 11 = 3.73

Was at Super Chevy Pomona 3/01. Was on ebay a few times. Car sold at B-J Palm Beach in 2004.
Yes, the POP pic is that bad.....

You guys are back to petty arguing.

That's the original engine for the car (and is what the POP said too).
They did a lot of work to change things around - remove AC, tag change - but didn't know what they were doing. They matched the tag to the engine date, not realizing the original tag was correct.

No idea why they include non-GM material in the packages. It infringes on copyright....

The documentation of the stripe color is via GM.  It's not a secret....

I can't see anything in that pad pic.
Here's the original tag from 2004. The current one is a repro with a multitude of errors on it.
(note that the pic doesn't have to be tiny to be a small file size - this is only 65 KB)

I'm confused. I have a picture of the trim tag for 7L159786 and the date is 06A.
The car had a POP but it disappeared about 10 years ago. Engine date was V1114MV, btw, though a BB was installed in it.

If it has the tape on it, it's an original one, not the warranty version.
17 months is huge. Even if it was a demo, they would have sold it at the end of the year.
