Ditto and once again thank you, John.  Always enjoy the history lessons and the information is appreciated more than you know!

Just checked my 11C 69 Z/28 and there is an LG7 on the bulkhead. I guess this stands for "light green X77". My trim tag is 721 (medium green interior)

Does anybody know if the Flint assembly plant worked on Saturdays in the fall (Oct. ) of '68.   Or.....does anyone else have a motor with a Saturday date stamp?

9078 is a 68 Camaro per Jonesy at Team Camaro.
Julian calender 001 = Jan. 1  365 = Dec. 31  1968 was a leap year so 326 would be Nov. 21 if I counted right.
Don't know the lead time on component parts but a month prior seems reasonable for your car.

Thanks again for the info and advice.
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hurst Shifter on: February 09, 2007, 11:43:59 AM
Thanks Joe.   Do you know how the  9 7 D6 on the side of the body decodes? I'll probably end up selling it and I should probably know exactly what it is and what years and models it will work on.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hurst Shifter on: February 08, 2007, 09:26:32 PM
Got the handle out (thanks Jerry) and the number on it is 4178. There are also some numbers and letters on the rods and levers if that would be of any help.

I've got an 11C 69 with a 660 M-22. The Hurst that came in the car is a newer aftermarket shifter. The one I'm asking about is something I picked up a few years ago with some other Camaro parts. When I tried to mount it, the 2 holes in the body would not line up with anything on the 9 hole bracket I have. It does mount up with a 5 hole cast aluminum bracket which says HURST 2223.  The shifter body has a number 3138 on the front. It has the name on the side with 9 7 D6 below it.  Also, there is no offset in the part of the shifter that holds the handle.

Before I break it, is there a trick to getting the pressed-in round style Hurst shifter handle out of the body? There appears to be a metal shim on each side of the handle where it fits into the lever on the shifter body.

So, using John's 912/day, 11A would be a reasonable guess for a 19N533186 motor compared to the 10C.  I still don't quite understand the discrepencies in the VIN location. Seems like I've seen it both places on early-mid year cars.  I'm just concerned about the one I have being real. We all know Ebay has sold more original "matching numbers" Z/28's than GM built.

Sam - No one has told me that the glove box sticker is (or even could be) legit. Please don't go by me. Would be nice if it was.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Is my DZ motor a phony? on: February 02, 2007, 10:27:08 PM
Yes.  Nothing there. In fact the entire interior is out and most of the car is in pieces-- looking for clues.  The car is super solid all original GM sheetmetal but it has really been played with. No original drivetrain.  What I know is that the car is an original non-air 4 speed, power disc brakes. quick-ratio power steering, single fuel line, dual exhaust, and I did find an air pressure sticker for E70-15 tires inside the glove box door but no DX door sticker.
Our motors were cast a day apart and assembled 10 days apart but our VINs are 11,490 cars off. Would 533186 be in the 11A time frame? Maybe the VIN location switch was made during this time?  Huh
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Is my DZ motor a phony? on: January 31, 2007, 10:47:30 PM
About a year ago I purchased a short block assembly that was date correct for the car I am restoring.  I have an 11C built car (19N545911) that was supposed to be a real deal pre-X Z.  (2 years and many Benjamins later, I still can't prove or disprove - to my satisfaction - whether it is/was a Z, but that's another story.)  The motor is a 386 block, casting date J 17 8, and an assembly stamp V1019DZ. If it makes any difference on the bogus meter 10-19-68 was a Saturday. The VIN stamp is difficult to read and could only be seen with a magnifying glass after I got the bare block back from the machine shop. It's by the oil filter and I'm pretty sure reads 19N533186. Does this sequence fit with the motor build date? Also, weren't the early VIN's stamped on the engine pad and later moved to the area above the oil filter to save time pulling the alternator on the assembly line? The motor has been rebuilt from carb to pan, and from a component standpoint is every bit a "DZ".  I just need to know if the block is a factory original.  Out of frustration, I may end up be selling the entire lot, and even though I purchased everything as "authentic", I can't, in good conscience, sell it that way if it isn't. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  And yes, not surprisingly, I'm considering buying some ocean front property in Phoenix.
                                                                                                    Thanks,  Steve

Thanks for the info. It seems I have purchased Frankenstein on wheels.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: power brake booster code on: June 27, 2006, 02:45:16 PM
The number is on the firewall side of the booster as viewed from inside the car. Thanks for the info. I'm discovering that the Z/28 I bought is either a fake or the poorest preserved example on earth. Gee, bet nobody's ever heard that before.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / power brake booster code on: June 19, 2006, 07:38:01 PM
I have an 11c built 69.  The tab on the top of the booster reads 0426. Anyone know what this means?
