31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: battery cable numbers on: March 25, 2014, 01:21:33 AM
I did a little research a while back on the side post batteries and cables since mind were long gone and found the numbers in the 69 AIM. These are what is offered from 'Lectric Limited' as reproductions based on the AIM. My car is an early 06A build. Here is the post discussion. http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/527439/Side_mount_battery_cables#Post527439 from one site and do a search here on 'side post battery cables' and you'll find some info on batteries and cables.

Anybody know what hardware is used here marked in red for the chambered exhaust hangers? Seems the part number in the 69 AIM isn't available on the AMK Fasteners site. The hanger kits are available from most any of the Camaro houses but none have complete hardware. At least this particular screw isn't offered anywhere that I can find. Anybody have a pic of one I can compare with, I may even have something in my buckets of GM hardware. I'll need 4.

Very unusual car Fahad has. I am so curious what he actually has, a Camaro or a Firebird. There are really only a few things that would confirm it either way isn't there? As already said, a replacement dash (fiberglass?) which does appear to be a 69 Firebird without the a.c./astro vents in the corners and the added 4 center holes and the dash pad looks more 67 with no drop down legs. Then all the Camaro body panels on it if it is a Firebird.  Would explain the 67-68 vinyl top trim too,but I understand that some installers used those even on some 69's. Here'a pic of a 69 Penske car with an added vinyl roof cover, unless that is really a modified 67-68 body.

I found this pic of a 69 TA dash.

I use to think I was upper middle class up to about 2000, but in reality it's more lower middle class now. Boy, I can't wait to see what it's going to be like when I OFFICIALLY retire in 2 years. I'm semi retired now and it sucks.  Shocked Roll Eyes

Unrestored seems to be the hot button right now, almost no matter what the make and model. Even 4 doors believe it or not in nice original shape have been getting some good coin.


It's about time. Maybe it will slow some of these restorations down a bit...although I don't think it will. Some people out there can't afford those extremely high prices the restored cars command but can afford a decent driver. I have quite a few friends that had decent cars when they were younger but can only find them restored or too far gone to be street-able. Your either rich or poor these days, nothing in between.

Interesting...Looks more like a 67 Camaro/Firebird dash panel. Needs some forensic work done to determine what year it is. TT indicates a very early built 69 and if it is, what happened to the original dash panel? Do we have a mystery on our hands? I'm intrigued.

"Ya'll stop dissing my neighbor (he grew up in the county next to mine). The only thing he's guilty of (lately) is causing global warming. Hot this winter, wasn't it ?"

Hmmmmmm...how does anyone know where any of us live? So far I'm the only one that has NOT made it private.

After the 3rd or 4th time getting stopped I installed a toggle switch under the dash and when the tailgaters were loose at night I would just flip the lights off and on to get them to back off.

WOW, that is a great bit of info Bentley, thanks for posting that. My Z has a tilt in it, which I thought was a bit unusual. I'll have to check it out when the weather gets better.

Man, reading this just reminded me of all the times the base MP's used to stop me for white lights to the rear when I had my first Z.

Actually Gary it would be an 8L. I have a 12B built car. I'll keep an eye peeled for that early June 69 unit. Your right, We have to stick together.

Sorry my mistake. 8 L.  You have a known date? Is it OK to post them?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Another Restamp Sold For Big Bucks on: March 19, 2014, 03:27:28 PM
I too Gary have been looking for one for a long time. I copy and save all the pic's I come across of these alternators for comparison. All these were batch made so there are certain date to look for too. Good luck in your search. I'll keep you in mind when I'm looking. If you come across one from Nov.68 maybe you can let me know.


Will do. We have to stick together. What date? 9 L ? correct? I'm always looking because this is the last big piece I need for my car. I'm also looking for an '834 for my 10B, October 68, built 69 Impala.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Another Restamp Sold For Big Bucks on: March 19, 2014, 01:02:03 PM
I don't have any experience on how to tell restamps on alternators. Must be something really glaring I haven't noticed yet, but I'm still comparing. I need an '837 close to the first week of June 69 so I want to make sure it is real. Any side by side pics anywhere?

That is just sad.
