Yes, that's the Fisher body sequence number.

Frank,

Here you go:

1 - N40 Power Steering
3 - Unverified at this time, but it appears it's either B37 Color-Keyed Front and Rear Floor Mats, or B93 Door Edge Guards
3 - U63 AM Push Button Radio
space
1 - C60 Air Conditioning
space
2 - A67 Folding Rear Seat

Do you have these on the car?

The J330 is the Los Angeles Fisher Body plant internal scheduling sequence. Your car was the 330th car started on the J day (10th production day) of November, 1967. Your car was probably started on or around Thursday, the 14th of November, late in the day.

Frank,

The 1108G is the date the axle was assembled and the plant that did it. In this cse, your axle was assembled on November 8th, 1967 at the Detroit Gear and Axle Plant (1st shift).

The 133 1 2 are option codes and they're in a specific order. Can you post a picture of the tag so we can take a look at it? That's the easiest way to decypher them.

Yes, the "C" would be a Carter carburetor and the "N" is is for the Build Date. November, 1967 in your case.

Dan,

What I found about the panels (and the ashtray) is from the 1968 "Major Appearance and Performance Option" sheet (attached). It states that you received the woodgrain dash panel if you got either the Z87 (Custom Interior) or the Z23 (Special Interior Group) options. I've gone through my books and can definately say that yes, the woodgrain panel started at the begining of the 1968 model year. I can also safely say that even if you DIDN'T order the Z87 or the Z23 options, but DID order the D55 Console, you again got the woodgrain panel. Only cars without Z87, Z23 or D55 got the black panel, and it appears that this continued until the end of the production run. Note that the attachment states you also received the "Smooth black ashtray faceplate", so that confirms what you stated above. There's no date on this sheet, but I do know it's early. Probably written before the 68 release.

Dan,

Before you go out and get another tray, here's what I've learned.

All 68's with the black dash panel received the black textured ashtray.
All 68's with the woodgrain dash panel received the smooth black ashtray up to the dates shown above.
All 68's with the woodgrain dash panel recieved the woodgrain ashtray after the dates shown above.

Hope this helps...

cfar,

You have the correct ashtray.

Ed
2003  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 woodgrain ash tray+dlx hubcaps on: January 23, 2007, 02:06:00 PM
JWC, thanks for the info. I've added it to the notes.

Phil, yes, I believe your book to be incorrect since the AIM shows this ashtray as the "standard" one used. This would mean no console and no interior decor package.

I went and checked a few of my old books and lo and behold, the "standard" ashtray (3919123) is textured, so I was incorrect in my previous statement as Summertime surmised. Therefore, the "smooth" ashtray must be the 3927460.

Summertime, the number on the bottom of the tray is "probably" the supplier part number, although I have no proof of this. It's NOT a GM part number though.

2004  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 woodgrain ash tray+dlx hubcaps on: January 22, 2007, 10:02:27 AM
The part number would be 3927460 as Paul stated, but I'm not sure which black is the "smooth" and which is the "textured". The P&A doesn't say.

I'm going to guess that the "standard" black tray (the 3919123) was smooth since that's the one pictured in the AIM (UPC-1, page B3), and since the dash itself is smooth, it would make sense. It wouldn't look right to have a smooth dash and a textured tray.

Since the console is textured, I'm again guessing that the 3927460 was textured for that same reason, but again, this is just a guess. Kurt or Rich might know. Guys?

Randy,

I wasn't telling Paul to put his diestributor on ebay, but his water pump. That's the 1967 or 1977 I was referring to.

Yes, 266 distributors go for huge $$$, so I'm not surprised on the 2k price you stated. These parts just keep getting more and more expensive.

And yes, the high performance distributors were built in batches, just like the Holley carbs, the L89 aluminum heads, etc.... But it's nice to see that your distributor date and Paul's is the same, considering your cars are so close in assembly dates.

Just proves Jerry is right yet again (gee, there's a surprise!!)

Yes it does. Thanks Paul.

2007  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: ABOUT TO BUY: camaro convertible 1968 trying to confirm 327/275 hp engine on: January 20, 2007, 12:46:02 PM
For 68, the EE code is a 327/275 with a Powerglide. You "should" have a 10 bolt and single leaf springs. 327/275 with a 4 speed (L30/M20) would have received the multi-leaf springs and a 12 bolt.

All your dates line up nicely. How much is he asking and what kind of shape is it in?

Ed
2008  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 L34 exhaust manifold date codes on: January 20, 2007, 12:26:59 PM
Yes, that date lines up nicely with your engine build. The 178 is just the last three digits of the entire casting number (located on the front). No real significance.

2009  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Could this be the original distributor in my 1968 Z/28? on: January 20, 2007, 12:21:49 PM
Paul,

I'm not sure if it has much value since it's a 1967 (or even a 1977) date, but you never know. Heck, put it up on ebay for a buck and see if you get any nibbles.

Ed
2010  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 woodgrain ash tray+dlx hubcaps on: January 19, 2007, 11:40:28 PM
Sorry about that Cfar. Yes, as Rich stated it's the month and week of the cars build date. 01C would be the 3rd week of January, 02B would be the second week in February, etc... In your case, the 3rd week of November would be 11C.

Note that this is the week your car was started at the Fisher Body Plant and may not be (and probably won't be) the week it rolled off the final assembly line. For some really good info on the first generation Camaro assembly process, read THIS REPORT by John Hinckley (JohnZ). He was there when it all happened!

By the way, thanks Kevin. I'll add it to the list.

Ed
