A point of interest on this item: My car's VIN is 516355, very likely mfg same day as this one. My 386 block cast date is I 10 8, within one day of this one. My car is 69 Z with build date 10B.

The tag looks pretty good to me. What gives it away? That is, if it's something you want to reveal.

We don't discuss those issues in a public forum - it just gives the "tag fakers" more info to make their fakes harder to spot.

Got it. I suspected as much.

513  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: The Definitive 1969 Camaro Fact Book (Revised 4th Edition) on: March 17, 2008, 09:58:41 AM
After reading my new edition for the 69 Z/28, I checked what I believed to be my original radiator (well at least I believed that the tanks were original, as I had it recored probably about 1983). It does not have the original tag that I always thought was needed to verify it as original, but after reading the book I discovered that both right and left tanks were embossed with codes as well. Sure enough both my tanks are embossed as the Jerry's book states, "CB" and "IH" I believe. When it need to be recored again, I just bought a repro instead, but kept the original. Another part I'm glad I didn't throw away!!

Yup, it is a late car and a great color. But repro tag.....

I have a 69 Z, red with a white vinyl top, and white stripes. It's also a rally sport. I think it's a fairly rare combination, but I  don't think the rarity makes it any more valuable than other Z's Just my opinion. I think rare is only a factor if whatever is rare is also desirable to most people. I really don't care if a Camaro has a fold down rear seat, or a rear radio antenna. The 302 is what I was always really after.

AC44s are not made anymore, the easy substitute is Champion J12YC.  Same plug.  This is what we use.

Jerry

I discovered the Champion J12YC several years back while checking cross referencing charts. I tired 'em and like 'em in my 69 Z. I always have a couple of sets ready to go. Seem to be easy to find as well.

Why would the paint code be special? Couldn't it be ordered 10 E, that is, black with white vinyl top?

Is that brown "sealant" on the trim tag rivets correct, or has that been re done?

521  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Gas Caps revisited - original Cap? on: March 03, 2008, 11:44:27 AM
Amazed it has come to this these days. I believe that my cap is original to my Oct 68 build 69 Z. When I have a chance, I will get some pics of mine. I do know it looks like those in the pics shown, and I have had the car since 1982, so I'm pretty confident it's the original one. I'll  get back on it.

Seller says he thinks it has 350 crank? How would that work with 302 pistons?? It wouldn't work, would it??

on the cowl tag it has a 10b is that black vinyl top or black stripes ? and why does this tranny not have a C stamped beside the P9P09?

My 10B Z/28 does not have letter suffix on trans either; Mine is P9P11 within 2 days of this one; Suffix was not added until about 3rd week of Oct 68, I believe. Looks correct to me.

I remember reading that the 302 Hemi experiment was not too successful
