The bracket for the 302/350 ZL2 application positions the coil at a greater angle from vertical, moving it away from the air cleaner. The difference is slight; maybe 10.

All you have to do is read the assembly manual.

It lists 1115270 coil assembly for RPO L48 & Z28-no mention of BB because the production coil & bracket on a BB did not interfere with the ZL2 air cleaner.

The 302/350 ZL2 coil bracket is the same one used on '66-'67 275/327.

396/427 engines did not need a different coil bracket for the ZL2 hood.

There is far too much paranoia over trim tags.

The only real significance they have is establishing a car was in fact built with certain valuable options, usually high-performance. For '67 an SS or Z/28 is in trouble if the tag is missing or has been replaced. If that isn't the case and you're just planning to make a hot rod out of it no one will care. If your restoring it to original condition down the road it may discourage some people. The tag has nothing to do with title or registration. Installing a non-original tag in an attempt to pass the car off as something it wasn't can get you in trouble.   

Don't ever buy a car with a missing or altered VIN tag.

For all '69s other than Z/28 posi was required with 3.73 and lower ratios. For Z/28 posi was required with 4.10 and lower; 4.10 was dropped as an option for Z/28 June 1969.

I have a broadcast copy for an LA Z/28 with this typed notation at the bottom:

PHYSICAL SEQ FOR THE FOLLOWING JOBS WILL BE 658, 660, 659, 661 BROADCAST ARE IN THIS ORDER.

Our '67 Z/28 had 258 inside the lower grille panel. Vintage road test photos of ZL1 #3 show 718 written on the trans cross member.

There are survivors with visible crayon markings and the explanation is simple. Paint did not always adhere well to the grease pencil and quickly flaked off. The markings were done by Fisher Body during body fab to guide the workers. This was long before any paint; firewall blackout was done after the car was painted. Remember that the next time you see a restored Camaro with the paint code written over the blackout.  

There was a marking made after paint that is often visible. The unit number has been seen on sub frames, and inside the lower grille panel.

Soda, media, essentially the same thing.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 firewall crayon marks, question? on: September 22, 2013, 11:24:30 AM
We used soda blasting on the '67 Z/28 project of many years ago, sorry pics pre-date digital.

Don't sand-blast. After 38 years in the hobby I avoid it as much as possible.
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DB Car on: September 15, 2013, 04:38:59 PM
Not in the db.

With an X11 tag it's not an OE BB car. Lots of incorrect parts.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: X33 car, should it have black door sills? on: September 12, 2013, 08:08:40 AM
All style trim z's (x33) had black rockers.

Not true. Colors 51, 57, 61, 67 were excluded according to Chevrolet dealer ordering info.

Rally wheels were not optional for 1967 and were not known by that name. Back in the day we called them "disc brake wheels" because they were included when the new for '67 disc brakes were ordered. For '68 they became optional as "rally wheels" and were no longer included with disc brakes.

I believe I heard it via John Z.

That was required when submitting a warranty claim for adjusting glass.
