346  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: black on tailpan on ss cars on: July 28, 2009, 10:39:36 AM
"Listen to the experts on this because you nor I are one of them."   And the experts are ?  And you know I am not a expert because ? I have been collecting and working on Camaro's for probably 35 years and have owned probably a couple hundred. I feel pretty confident that the examples I posted were not shiny because of being waxed over the years. I make no claims to be the expert but I know what I have seen over the years and I try to pay attention to orig cars.  The Yenko was a 8000 mile car and the green L78 is a maybe 12000 mile car ?


In my opinion the tail panels and rockers were painted semi gloss. My focus has always been on the survivor cars and have had access to dozens of survivor cars and none have had a full gloss tail panels. I own survivor cars and the black tail panels and rockers were not painted with the same paint used when they painted the complete exterior black. I would estimate it is 70-80 percent gloss. Sorry Charley, but I can't let you get away without a counter point.

COPO# 9737 (sports car conversion) in 1968 and 1969 included a 140 spedometer and a few other goodies. In 1968 Yenko ordered cars under this # and then converted most from 396's to 427's.  In 1969 he ordered what is referred to double copo's 9737 and 9561 which included the L72 427. William published a nice report on the copo process which is under the reports section of this site. Other dealers ordered double copo's as well in 69.

352  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: PTB on Los Angeles Camaros on: December 18, 2008, 08:36:07 AM
So when were the P T and B marks put on?  and why?  they must have been applied at different times by different people?  after QA inspection of those areas?  or ?    and why would the cars be marked on both sides of the firewall?   

There were two inspectors (one on each side car) applying the stamps as it finished that operation in the assembly process. There are paint daubs through out the car that represent inspection and or confirmation that a component is torqued or installation complete.  
353  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Drive Shaft for a COPO on: December 05, 2008, 11:10:57 PM
I have never seen shafts that were not phased .If they are out of phase they would vibrate like hell .Is it possible the shaft you looked at was twisted ?


Virtually all the hipo cars copo, ss and z28 driveshafts I have inspected are offset, as William stated, with no vibration detected. It was thought it may have been to prevent vibration harmonic, but no difinitive answer as to why. No the shafts are not twisted due to torque....
354  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 TI Ignition wiring diagram on: November 26, 2008, 03:55:36 PM
I had a JL8 Z28 that the orig owner installed GM TI setup and the tach worked just fine. I am not sure what if any modifications were needed for it to operate, but I did not see any additional wiring or modifications.

Hi Billy, I will be at Hershey and will be judging, just not sure what assigned class. This is a general event, you will see car 1800 to 1983. I enjoy judging at the Camaro Nationals and AACA Hershey, they are both great events. I will be there Fri & Sat, give me a call on my cell 631-514-9765, I would be happy to look your car over.

357  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original #s matching SS muncie 3 speed on: July 21, 2008, 12:44:41 PM
That was the standard transmission on the L48 SS. Rare perhaps, desirable ...that a stretch.
358  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Low fuel light application on: July 05, 2008, 02:32:42 PM
Just a heads up, do not install a bulb in the low fuel module as referenced in that ebay picture. Although it looks like a bulb socket no bulb should be installed. Also that module snaps into a hole on the gauge pod.
359  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 COPO Camaro Muncie Transmissions on: June 23, 2008, 06:49:34 PM
All 1969 Yenko's 4spd cars were M21's. I believe a few COPO's came with M20's and of course M22's.
360  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 AM/FM radio option on: June 09, 2008, 04:15:09 PM
Another question.  U79 A1 Multiplex states receiver asm,... install the same as U63.  Is the same AM/FM radio reciever used for both U79 and U63.  If so,for U63, the radio face says stereo even though the system is mono.  Would that be correct or were two different recievers used?

U63 = AM
U69 AM/FM mono
U79 AM/FM stereo
