Bryan, the original material is an ACTUAL weave, all the repros so far are a pressed material that approximates the original.

I just received my letter, I do not know whether to laugh or cry.

6/23/69, Dealer code 1, Zone 79 (Hawaii), Dealer Name: GM overseas Distribution

Now what the heck am I supposed to do with that!

I bought the car in north NJ in 82 and it had a Seton Hall University sticker on the window. This car really traveled! LA to Hawaii to NJ!!!

Anyone here have information on the GM shipping to Hawaii info??
Maybe Hawaii has records and one has to wonder if the original owner was in the service since the car traveled so much (Huh).

If a car was ordered by someone while on active duty the order system would have processed it through the overseas distribution.  My guess based on seeing a few of these would e your car was ordered by someone in the navy possibly stationed in Hawaii and delivered to a dealer in his home state for his return. that's all speculation but its based on what we know happened. More times than not an Overseas Distribution meant exactly that sometimes it was shipped overseas sometimes it was not.

Do you think there are additional records someplace in the navy or GM Hawaii that I can investigate?

Wow, very close in build date as mine, but geez, $11k for that! ?? rust everywhere and not even a console car! I'm sitting on a gold mine I tell you! Cheesy

The seal number comes back as a 70 Chevelle cowl seal http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=86260 (air cleaner to cowl hood seal, same as Camaro), I bet the date is March 22, 1972.  Looks like an old label.

My Malwarebytes flagged that Zippy site as malicious, just FYI. 
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: restoring 69 hood hinges on: March 25, 2014, 12:42:51 PM
I used stainless steel paint as a primer, then a very dusty thin coat of cast blast to tone it down, then a very fine misting of satin black to further darken it.  May not be correct, but it looks good and should last. other than the primer coat, the others are sprayed far away so the paint gets a rough texture and is not smooth.  I did this to the hood latch too. Sorry, I do not have a pic loaded online showing this.

Anything is possible Smiley but that combo was not a factory version.

Hmm, without the original motor, its going to be hard to validate a LOS car is a Z/28.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Strange Coincidence on: February 28, 2014, 07:37:17 AM
I agree with joe, just push the tabs back, get a SS hood and regular grill, have them painted to match and install.  Not the Big $$ you expect. Smiley But if the fenders are drilled for the "rallysport" emblem, then changing that to the Camaro SS emblems will be more $$ to fill the holes and blend paint the lower part of the fenders.  Since it is an X55, it will be clear to future buyers that it was not a rally sport.  my $.02

looks original to me!
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Van Nuys Hidden Partial VIN on: February 22, 2014, 10:57:37 AM
Yup, just checked, no stamp around the heater box, just on top of the cowl. 05a (really june sometime) L5303xxx
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Van Nuys Hidden Partial VIN on: February 21, 2014, 06:08:56 AM
I think mine does not, just the one on top of the cowl, but I will have to check this weekend.  Why the request? PS, my car does not have AC
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: horn relay on: February 06, 2014, 07:02:13 AM
he means the black plastic terminal protectors on Factory Delco relays.  69s came with clear or black, which one is correct depends on your build date.

Yes, they tend to warp over time, I had to put a couple extra screws and double up the seals to get it fitting properly.
