Originality / Holley Dual Feed Fuel Line Y-Block
« on: Today at 12:36:25 AM »
Do assembly-line brass Y-blocks for Holley dual-feed carburetors on '67-'69 Camaros have any identifying markings to look out for?

Ebay listing says 'SOLD'......for $15,000

Updated ebay listing, Buy Now price has gone up from $10,000 to $15,000........

Was the owner told it had been returned, or is it likely still with Pirkle Jr?
Don't know anything about Pirkle, but if he operates out of a business address rather than his home, for starters I'd search for a neighbouring business and ask the owner if he's been seen lately, at least you'd know if he's there.

Thanks Bryon, I assumed that the informed commentators on this particular car were basing their replies on other known data points around similarly-equipped Camaros, but (as a broader question) see a lot of reputable appraisals that state rear axles are 'original to vehicle' without any documentation, and would think it's a stretch to say anything more than 'correct assembly timeframe' (or words to that effect). Obviously a  genuine P-o-P or document provides proof, but without that...

If it's OE to the car. Presumably the '20' or so that have been documented thus far means there is, er, documentation, rather than just that the dates are correct?

Sure seems unusual to have anomalies in two different tag fields.

Thought all the known NBR tags were from the 09A timeframe, so was the scheduled build week also a typo?

Nice detail shots, thank you!
Really like the uncluttered look of a manual floor shifter without a console.

I have one in my work vehicle, records to a micro SD card on a continuous loop of about 72-hours. The recorded data includes exact location coordinates and vehicle speed by GPS, so it could be used as evidence (for and against) in the event of an accident - however being totally honest, my driving style in that vehicle reflects my awareness it's capturing everything I do, so I probably 'behave' better than if it weren't there....
You can also override the automatic recording loop to capture a particular event that you want to keep footage of, and it also provides a 'kml' output file to Google Earth that allows you to plot your travel movements, can be really useful if you need a reminder exactly where you saw that interesting car stashed behind an old barn!

It matches the vin
The rear end was built in January
The car was march
The date and numbers come back as a 3.31 12 bolt the lm1 offered. Thats enough to confirm
Axles weren't stamped with a partial VIN, the only was to be certain it's the one the car was built with is if you have documentation or the P-o-P which shows the axle assembly date and ratio; otherwise it's just a period-correct component, that could be OE to the car, but your speculation as to how the car may have been configured (uncommon or not).

To the current owner, do you have any documentation that the rear end currently in the car was the one it left the factory with?

This is the one discussed over at sYc, bought in Detroit recently and now being flipped in Livonia via ebay and FarceBook.

Would think a jam nut or set screw would only be necessary if the orientation of the shifter knob mattered, like if it had the shift pattern on it.

Report it. Not hard to do, but ebay's reporting system is slow.
Always do Ed, but hopefully the more reports ebay gets, the more likely they'll be to take action.
