Huh?

The VIN range for 04C is N6366xx-N6277xx, about 8900 units.
1037  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN vs. build date...do these add up? on: July 15, 2006, 04:10:33 PM
The dates & VIN ranges you have posted square with data I have had for over 20 years. At Norwood there was no 03A, 03C, 04A, 04B. There was an interruption in output there for some reason. Having worked in manufacturing my entire career I know that for a plant dedicated to a specific product all it is takes an outage of one component to shut it down.

The range of VINs for 02A is N602xxx-N615xxx, over 12,000 units. Probably depleted stock of everything.
1038  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 z/28 driveshaft on: July 15, 2006, 03:53:40 PM
For 1969 the driveshaft was common to all 1969 Camaros built with a Muncie 4-speed according to the P & A manual. 67 & 68 driveshafts are longer and do not interchange.

What they did in production may have been another issue. Z/28 driveshafts often have offset yokes while most others did not. They may have been balanced to a higher rpm.

Our 85,000 67 Z/28 had OE ball joints, drums and rotors. The rotors had never been turned and cleaned up with a light cut.
1040  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: corvette bronze code OO in 1968..how many made? on: July 06, 2006, 03:06:25 PM
Chevrolet never released production by color so there is no way to know how many of each was produced.

Our small db indicates about 6% of 1968 Camaro production was OO, not really rare.
1041  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Camaro booster numbers on: July 04, 2006, 09:42:44 PM
Boosters are rated by output PSI at 20 and 100 lbs pedal pressure. In general disc boosters [so identified by "1-1/8 piston dia"] have higher PSI than drum.
1042  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original grill/bezel color? on: July 04, 2006, 09:00:29 AM
The headlight bezels should always match the grille.

If the car was Hugger Orange originally it would have to be an SS to have been built with a black grille. If it is not an SS the grille and bezels should be silver [aka argent].

'0426' is the tab number for a 1970 Firebird with the HP option.
1044  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Camaro booster numbers on: July 02, 2006, 09:58:23 AM
According to the Delco Moraine Service Manual dtd 1-70 '2945' is for a 1967 Pontiac Tempest with drum brakes. It has much higher output PSI than the Camaro unit.

A 1967 Camaro would use '0749' or '1109' with metallic brakes.

BTW these are the numbers on the tab, unrelated to the part number.
1045  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1st Gen Driveshaft Design - Did GM Make a Mistake? on: June 27, 2006, 12:09:29 PM
The drivetrain warranty was 5 years and 50,000 miles.

All of my Z/28s had driveshafts with offset yokes and none had any driveline vibration.

In view of the fact that GM has made/purchased hundreds of millions of driveshafts I will bet they know all there is to know about it.

What is the coil #?
1047  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Dealer Installed Options and Window Stickers on: June 22, 2006, 12:16:15 PM
Having bought a few cars in those days in my experience dealers did not 'pack' cars like they do today. If a buyer wanted an accessory it was added before delivery and noted on the sales contract. If a vinyl roof or something had been added it was noted on a slip of paper and pasted near the factory label.

One notable exception were Yenkos cars. The factory Chevrolet window labels were removed and replaced with SYC labels with their pricing.
1048  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What should i expect to pay to have a pair of decent taillamp bezels rechromed? on: June 22, 2006, 12:09:18 PM
I was with a Camaro parts business for 15 years and in that time never saw rechromed 68 bezels that looked good. The process for stripping the chrome will uncover more pitting. Unless someone carefully repairs them prior to re-chroming they will not look anything like new.
1049  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Tire date decoding on: June 21, 2006, 12:57:55 PM
Nothwithstanding the probably hundreds of restored '69s with them there is no reason to believe ANY 69 was built with RWL Goodyear Polyglas tires.

Goodyear Wide Tread GTs, Firestone wide ovals [small letter] Uniroyal Tiger Paws were all used but only the Wide Treads are in repro.

Like the man sez don't even think of putting 37 year old tires on a car.
