So a 2 door could be followed by a station wagon? I can see once the basic body is welded up on the Fisher end where the rest of the process is mainly a matter of the correct parts coming from the various feeder lines. It's the beginning part where the various sheet metal parts were being lined up and welded that I find amazing, especially when two basically different bodies were one right behind the other. I guess the tooling mainly involved holding the parts to be welded, and there were locating holes/pins in the parts themselves? Or maybe the fixtures were universal, and had locating pins to work with every body to be built?

Here's mine for an Oct 68 build 69Z.  Dated 872, July 2, 1968. If yours is 781, that would be Aug 1, 1967 and would make sense for an early 68 Z.

So I was looking at the report and saw that Firebird was added to Norwood in 69. How was this accomplished? Would the Camaro fixtures work on the Firebird as well, or was there different fixtures/equipment depending on the build?

My guess would be that the change had to do with improving the assembly process, however the move accomplished that.

Engines were assembled and date stamped at engine plant - Flint. So same whether Norwood or LA.

I can't understand the logic behind people holding on.

Here's my theory: Guy knows he's never gonna fix it, probably can't; but hey he's got something somebody else wants and so it gets him attention. He also thinks he's got one of a kind. And like a little kid, he's got a toy he won't let anybody touch, and loves teasing them when they ask about it.

I could be totally all wet, but on the fan shroud I see writing that appears to me to be a "T" with 12 8 67 below that, and -20 below that? Maybe I'm dreaming?

So what's the % of Z's with their original drive train? I heard opinions in the 10% range. If that's true, there aren't that many out there to pick from.

Buy with confidence!! How do the ebay ads have text that runs all over itself like that? It's annoying.
Just reload the page and all the stacking will clear up.

Thanks! didn't know that.

Must be luck of the draw with these systems. Mine work perfectly well, and has for the 32 years I've had the car? Original vacuum canisters, etc. Only issue I have is with the driver's door - it sticks if the temp is below say 60 degrees. But If you give a it nudge, it closes right up. When it's warm outside, it works fine. Pass side never gives me  a problem. Maybe I shouldn't post this. As soon as I do, I'll start having problems.
