You're going to have to post some pictures.

And what's your question??

HERE'S the original thread (a little easier to read), but to boil it all down, 60-65 Ft/Lbs is what you want.

Joern, it appears that either the trim tag or the VIN has been swapped. Can you post pictures of both? Also post a picture of the engine pad if you can.

Well, now you can find out EXACTLY what dealer your car was delivered to!

Starting in mid April, 2014, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) will now be able to tell you the dealer code, dealer name, dealer location and the production date your car (1965 through 1972 for Camaro, Chevelle and Nova) was produced!

Now you can have the same information that was previously only available to 1962-1975 Corvettes. Armed with this data, you may be able to find the original dealer where your car was shipped, and possibly find out more information about your Chevrolet.

The Shipping Data Report can only be ordered online but membership in NCRS is NOT required. Fees will be $50 payable by credit card or PayPal and you will receive via USPS a letter with the information which includes the NCRS official seal. Note that in limited cases the dealer code may not be available or readable, and in this case a full refund will be made.

For more information, click HERE and again, note that this servoce starts in mid April, 2014.

I'm sorry to have to report this Joern, but yes, your trim tag is a reproduction (aka fake). The L78 engine wasn't even available that early in production, and like Mike said, when it became available later in the model year, it was only available with the HD 3 speed or the Muncie 4 speed. And more bad news. Your car didn't start out life as a big block. Only small block and 6 cylinder engines were available during tht time frame.

It was 1959 as John noted in his original reply.

53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: chevrolet script on: January 14, 2014, 01:35:28 PM
And here's a picture of two original 1967 valve covers I just picked up yesterday. These came off an early Los Angeles built L30/M35. (Ignore the Tonawanda label. It was added by a prior owner.)

54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: might want this in database for future build on: January 12, 2014, 09:35:26 PM


Trim tag:
ST 69 12437 NOR372374 BDY
TR 711 79 79 PNT
07A X33D80


todzillaz28 out of Perryville, MO

I saved what I believe is the critical parts of my Z28.  I removed the dash with the VIN (has clear Missouri title), trim tag, have original 4 speed, front subframe (redone 8 years ago, never on the road, set in my shop; all new ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends, new stainless brake lines), also have some miscellaneous parts, interior wire harness, was a center mount fuel gauge car and have the meter cluster with center mount fuel gauge (never checked or did anything this with so will need attention).  Original engine is long gone, do have two DZ 302's available for purchase to the winning bidder, completely redone from intake to pan.  I have this for sale locally so please bid early and often.  Please ask all questions that you would have prior to bidding all sales are final.

Read THIS for which filter you need, and then read THIS if your car was assembled after the January/February, 1969 time frame.

No, those aren't GM part numbers.

57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Canadian Emissions / Smog on: January 09, 2014, 03:06:27 PM
I can't speak for Canada, but in the US it was illegal for dealers to remove smog equipment, even if asked by the purchaser.

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Canadian Emissions / Smog on: January 09, 2014, 02:45:13 PM
From the EMISSION SYSTEMS report:

In 1967 (as in 1966), emissions equipment was required only on cars sold in California. The California cars were fitted with an AIR system (Regular Production Option (RPO) K19), and the PCV system (RPO K24). All engines equipped with K19 had unique engine codes due to the required holes in the exhaust manifold(s). Also, the L26 (230 ci L6) engines with K19 used a different distributor and the L30 (327 / 275hp) engines with K19 had a different initial timing. Note that smog equipment was not required on cars built in California but intended for sale in other states.

In 1968, vehicles exported to Canada and other countries did not require the AIR system. RPO KD1 was used to delete the system (if it would have been so equipped otherwise) and 1/4"-18 NPSF straight pipe thread plugs were installed in the manifolds. It is unknown if a credit was issued on the Canadian window stickers for this delete. The Controlled Combustion System was still installed on the exported L6 automatic and small block automatic cars.

In 1969, Canadian cars used the same emission controls as U.S. cars.

What year is your car?


59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: liquid used in the hydraulic power top system? on: January 08, 2014, 03:05:43 PM
Originally they used Type A, but that's been long discontinued, so Dexron (which has now advanced to Dexron IV) should be used.

60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: POP anomaly?? on: January 08, 2014, 09:33:37 AM
Gents, he's referring to a 68, not a 69. Completely different when it comes to the dash handle (grab bar).

And no, no new info has been found.
