31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Whats the MOST ORIGINAL car you have ever had or seen? on: February 04, 2013, 05:01:03 PM
The most original I have ever seen is my present car-69 Van Nuys SS. When I bought it, only the tires and battery had been changed.

Yes, 270 coil, and "DE" coded air cleaner.

OK .. thanks Mark.   Of course I recall seeing them on Z11, but don't recall ever seeing a *regular SS* with a cowl hood..  but then there weren't a lot of Z28's with the cowl hoods either, back in the day.. Smiley

Here is my SS350 factory ZL-2. Probably very few made.

William,

My understanding is that any '69 Camaros ordered with the 4-wheel disk brakes also included the 15" rallye wheel (or it was a mandatory associated option?)  I assume this would even be true with the one 6-cyl Camaro that was supposedly ordered with the 4-wh disks?

E70 x 14 tires were never available as original equipment on a 1969 Camaro.

The standard size [non-SS or Z/28] was E78 x 14; F70 x 14 optional.

SS cars had F70 x 14 as the standard size; several varieties were optional.

Z/28s and COPOs also equipped with 9737 used E70 x 15. There were no 15" tire options.

JL8 included 15" wheels when not ordered with Z/28. Only one such car is known to exist.

There was a 15" tire option in 68 and 1 documented 1968 SS was discovered in 2011 with the option, may be 69's out there too. My friend has the MacNeish certified 307ci, 4 speed, JL8 car found in a Southern California field> currently under restoration.

36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Kelsey Hayes rims for 1969 on: January 22, 2013, 06:02:39 PM
All 5 of my rims are K193 25YJ. My car is 04A Van Nuys. So the timeline from wheel stamp to car body is pretty close.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 NOS ZL-1 engine possibility ? on: January 10, 2013, 10:35:56 PM
Part number 3919838 is for closed chamber aluminum head. Is there another part number sticker? There is no listing for a ZL-1 engine or block in 1973. Please show a photo of the freeze plug area.
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 NOS ZL-1 engine possibility ? on: January 10, 2013, 07:58:23 PM
053 castings are 1997 and up. Are the freeze plugs anodized or pipe plugs? Heads for ZL-1 would be 074 castings. I don't think any Zl-1 blocks were availible over the counter in 1973. What is the part number on the crate?
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 NOS ZL-1 engine possibility ? on: January 09, 2013, 01:04:03 PM
All original ZL-1 blocks were cast in 1969-about 600 or so. The heads can be dated up to 1973
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: did cowl hooded cars have under hood lights on: November 10, 2012, 06:43:14 PM
That's because cars that were originally equipped with a cowl hood are so rare to begin with. To have the light would be even rarer.

-Mark.

That would be my car!

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original 69 SS coupe and vert Jacking Instructions 3949515 sticker on: August 25, 2012, 05:26:38 PM
Yes, and my SS did come with 14" Rally wheels. Chassis Broadcast Copy documents it.
I wonder if it is a LOS GMAD vs Chevrolet NOR thing. The part number you have according to the AIM is fro all other wheels besides PW7 & PW8 F70-14 tire options. Which option code does your broadcast sheet reference for the wheels?

Full listing of part numbers from the 1969 AIM here (listed in my post number 3): http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=210822

I looked at the AIM pages and found something. It must be a coupe or convertable thing. My car is a coupe, yours a convertable. Also the AIM page PW7 A1 is showing a convertable, not a coupe. The standard SS wheel was a 14 x 7 painted steel wheel and cover and F70-14 tires. 14" x 7" Rally wheels were option ZJ7 and stamped YJ. My broadcast copy has "YJ" in box #287 wheel size, my wheels are stamped YJ.
Page PW7 A1, must be for all convertables and SS convertables with larger F70-14 tires. Notice the jack base is right side up on your sticker 3949515 and page PW7. Standard tire convertables have the jack base upside down into the wheel and sticker 3949513. The coupes can fit the larger tires with no change, so only one sticker 3949506. Thats why you need the spacer, because the jack base is right side up and the wing nut needs a bigger contact point.

That's a great picture of the DG Brian.  I notice a number of things that are a little different than what I've been fiddling with.  The two digit alpha code is a different font again, but I have found it. The "keep your......" script is also a slightly different font although I think I have also found it.  There is also more "White space" at the bottom and top than what I was dealing with. Any chance you can get Jeff to get a measurement for us

Don, that DG sticker is just what we needed to see. The DE must of been exactly like it. Just change the DG to DE and the part number and we are there! thank you for all your effort.
As a bonus, you can now make a correct DG sticker as the repros are far from correct.
