1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 28, 2014, 02:14:11 PM
anyone have contact info for the Houston Zone Office? Roy, you mentioned two men, who are they? (just names as example or people who owned dealerships, worked in that Zone Office,  etc?)  I don't know what I don't know..lol Thanks

Called Knapp Chevrolet in Houston.
The guy there told me that cars sent to the Zone office was ordered by an employee to drive as a company car then sold to dealer. Zone offices closed in early 80's.
So least I know something. lol 
If you know someone in Houston that knows someone that knew someone back in the day and worked at the Zone office, please let me know.

Thanks

So I guess if you have a car sent to a Zone office, you are done. No way to find out anything correct??
Dealer 0 Zone 30.

Thanks!   Couple more questions..
How does the date decode? 343=Julian date day of year? K=1973?
Do you know what the 69 code would be?
Also, can anyone tell me if the 69 model was bolted or crimped?

Again, Thank you!

I am not finding a lot of info on the correct part number for this application. Could someone help?
I have seen claims bolted as original, crimped as original, weep holes, no weep holes, some will have dates, some will not.... on and on.

Thanks for any information/clarification

I bought a SS in 1979. It had the rear antenna and spoiler. I was 16 at the time and didn't even keep any info on the car. I believe it was an early production. The interesting thing is it was the short spoiler. I don't recall it ever hitting the antenna. No idea of when or where the spoiler was installed.

Lots to learn and consider. I do appreciate your responses.
Thank you!!

Kurt,
Thanks for the opinion of what a clear response should be.  I can imagine someone had a correct dated block for their car and not knowing better, stamped their VIN# where they thought it should be. Clearly plausible. I have learned that nothing should be assumed when talking about these cars.
Perhaps after the many years of experience you have had, it is clear. Don't think Ed would have suggested you would know about the date stamp if he assumed the same.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Engine Stamp on: February 07, 2013, 01:49:59 PM
Ed,
Thanks for the responces. Guess I expected #3 and #6 responses. Since question #4 is no I assume question #3 must be no as well.

"If you find a car you're interested in, post a picture of the pad and we can tell you if it's real or not."

I did originally post this pic one year ago and still have not gotten an answer if the date stamp is real or not.

Thanks again

Do these numbers look correct to you guys? Font, location etc.
It is from a BB pacer on Ebay.

Asked this question a year ago. Would like to revisit. Hopefully the picture still shows up.
Typically the vin# is at best difficult to see whether it is located on the pad or by the oil filter.
I am mostly curious about the date stamps. Obvioulsy if that stamp stands out as not being correct, be it font or height etc., It is safe to say that certainally the other stamps would be questionable. So...a few questions;
1. Is there anyone out there that has the exact fonts and numbers that Norwood used? If so, are they common place?
2. If not, then could I assume it would be very easy to spot a restamped date code??
3. Using this picture as a template. Does this date stamp have the correct fonts? Numerals?
4. Did the person doing the stamping take special care and time to make each stamp parallel to the block edge? Seems doubtful...but??
5. Also, I have seen the CRG report showing where the date stamp should be for a big block. Seems correct location here on this pic, correct??
6. Finally, After the VIN# was moved down to the oil filter, was the date stamp still put in the exact same place or did workers realize they had more room and could have moved it to the right towards or even in the middle of the pad??
I hope to start a search within the year for a BB 4 speed car and want to know as much as possible before I post pics to the forum.
Thanks in advance.

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 camaro repo fuel tanks on: November 27, 2012, 09:01:29 AM
For those who want to know. I bought an "AMERICAN RESTORATIONS" tank.
The box it came in had a tag on it which said "SPECTRA PREMIUM"
So not sure of the company structure, I guess American Restorations is a distributor.
Very nice tank though!
Thaks for all the responses about dates and such...lol
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 camaro repo fuel tanks on: October 11, 2012, 02:47:36 PM
Exactly what I was needing to know! What brand of tank is yours and where, when did you purchase?
Thanks again!
