Wow....this is an old topic.  The difference today is with a little gum shoe detective work I can likely find one of the Norwood guys who:

Supervised this operation, mixed the paint or actually sprayed the panel.   

Why not assist in the ongoing research?  You can Join us and create your own network of connections for a variety of factory topics.

So more orange peel on LOS cars, or just better paint quality in general on Norwood cars? When you say chassis side do you refer to painted finishes on parts? or how would the Chassis guys focus on the paint?

You hit it.. orange peel was the big thing.  Parts finish was not mentioned.  FB painted did the rear of the car CHEV did the front.  Paint match was always something both sides of the plant would look for.

FYI...A small group of NOR Retirees were just invited by GM to the Detroit area for a presentation.  When I see the group I can ask them to share a bit more on this topic.

Thats good info Festival. SO when the Norwood guys would check them out, what was the opinion were they put together any better or were there any differences noted?

Exterior paint.  The Nor guys were partial to the quality of paint.   That was the big thing for them.  This was one feature of the car that the body side  and the chassis side had in common on the finished unit.

Norwood supplied the east coast as a primary source.  When sales were strong then Los cars could routinely come to the Midwest. 

Norwood guys recalled looking at the local cincinatti GM dealers to see where the product for sale was built at.    If a Los car was observed then workers would look at the car close for finish quality.

Kurt,

My 05A Z-11 has a Saginaw 010 block cast on April 6th with 186 heads.    It is a assembled Flint engine with a 4 bolt too.   I hope this helps.

George and his great restoration project car at move in in the main Norwood garage built in early 1969.  George's car was one of the Highlights of the event to be sure!

George,

The photographer has images of your car, and the film crew as well.   I should have the still images this week-I will get a couple over to you right away.

The 2013 Norwood Gathering Showcase Exposition display was full..but I just had a two car last minute cancellation - so I have two spots that just opened up. PM Me or shoot me an E-mail if you want in. Breaking....Chevrolet (GM) just announced that they are attending!

The line up of cars for the showcase is just fantastic 67-70 Z/28's, and SS cars are well represented.
