Thanks John, I can see where it would be impossible to replicate anything like that process just for Camaro Repro Quarters, etc. The guys that make the actual dies must be some kind of craftsmen

I would be curious to know why these companies' sheetmetal parts are not as good as GM. Obviously they have to make dies to produce these repro parts, and they should know what they are trying to match, ie the original GM parts. Only thing I can figure is that since they are not selling as many parts as GM did originally, they cannot afford to spend as much on tooling as GM originally did.

Very Likely! Mine is also M20. Wonder if they were in batches in Muncie?

Note that this transmission has the exact assembly date, P9P11, as the one in my 69 Z; My VIN is 516355.

Just for added info, here's what the VIN on my car looks like.

Thanks John Z for the info. My Z idles 10-12 in Hg so I'm not sure what vacuum advance can I have. I replaced it years ago with Echlin part which was supposed to be correct for my car, so it may be the VC-1810, but I'm going to pick up another one and test it to see. The car does idle fine now, although at a higher rpm (1000-1100)  than the 900 the factory manual calls for. It always seem to rough when I tried to set it that low. Maybe this why?

OK, I removed the cowl panel from my Camaro over the weekend to check out the Hidden VIN under it, and it took me 5 minutes to see it even though I was looking in the right place from the start. I finally saw it when looking at angle from the drivers side in front of the passenger wind shield washer nozzle. Even after cleaning it off, I could not make out the last digit, but all others were there and matched the windshield as expected. I was surprised to see how faint the stamping was. I suppose this is normal?

Sounds like momentary oil starvation to me. Low on oil?

Brian,

I looked at the pics on e bay; Looks like the correct aluminum intake? Date codes close to engine dates codes? Correct deep groove pulley on front of balancer? Is balancer correct 8" dia? If you have had the heads off, does it have correct 302 4" bore pistons? If all these are correct, they help support an original 302 theory. If the bore is std 4", it seems likely to be an original 302, unless someone overbored a 283? I don't think they made a 283 in 68? If true, all this evidence helps support your case. Good luck

So what it the actual asking price? ie reserve?

521  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Odd rear code on '69 Z/28 on: August 30, 2007, 07:15:13 AM
I have to agree with Jerry. I have a stock 69 Z with M20 and 3:73 gears, and I wouldn't want any less gearing than I have now. I do not think I would enjoy driving a crossram equipped car with a 3:55 rear gear in stop/start traffic on a hill. My first car was a 57 Chevy with too much cam requiring revving to find the torque range, and it was a pain in the butt in traffic, and a nightmare in stop/start traffic on a hill, even with 4:88 gears that it had at the time. Of course it was my daily transportation, and that is very different from a weekend cruiser. A lot can be forgiven in a car your don't have to drive to work everyday.

Looks like it's had a lot of items removed for racing, maybe to save weight?

And here in Cincinnati 300 miles from Chicago, we haven't seen rain for 4 weeks at least. Amazing how conditions can be so different in areas so close together.

How long do you have before you have to move? It sounds like you may be a bit upset at this time about the situation. If, so give it a little time and maybe you will stumble across some different ideas that you have not thought of yet, that may be better for you in the long run.

Might want to keep this site posted as to if and when you sell, and where, as there should be considerable interest here.
