541  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / X77 Trim on: July 08, 2007, 12:35:33 PM
Would an X77 car come with the chrome wheel opening moldings, chrome quarter panel louvers, and the bright roof drip rails? I thought these were X33 trim?

I'm just curious. Did the line ever stop, or it ran basically continuously?? Unless there was some major snafu?

RJ_RS_SS_350, you are correct.

I know that body no.'s and VIN no.'s are not in sequence, but is there still a general correlation between the two? That is, would an expert looking at a trim tag be able to spot a fake from a body no. that would be out of range for a VIN/build date?

My original manifolds from my 69 Z are on the shelf in my basement, since I am running headers. Makes me wonder if these cars are worth more together or in parts?? $1500.00 is amazing. No way I could sell them separate from the car, however. I know I'm naive, but money's not everything.

Makes sense to me. Note that my VIN is 516355 and my Trim Tag  is 10B.

I have been looking into this topic for my car since viewing this post. (just for interest sake)  My month of interest is October 1968. Based on 912 cars per day produced, and 18,204 cars produced for the month, it works very closely to 20 days of production for the month. In checking a calendar for October 1968, it appears that there were 23 possible work days in the month, i.e. Mon. thru Fri. (October 1, 1968 was a Tuesday) Would there have been 3 holidays in the month where no production was run, or??

Would this be true as well for fuel additives/octane boosters from manufacturers of racing gasoline products? Eg VP or Klotz, etc.?

Yes, now that I look closer at another wheel I have I see a 6 to the left of the valve stem, and a 7 underneath the valve stem on the right  if I move it to one side with my finger. To the right of the 7 is the YJ stamp.  Also, to the left of the 6 appears to be stamped K 1 9. The K 1 9 is very faint, almost unreadable.

551  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Wheel Dating on: June 19, 2007, 02:03:42 PM
Can I date a 14x7 YJ wheel from the following:

K19 near hole in center of wheel

5 on one side of valve stem hole

YJ on other side of valve stem hole

K = Kelsey Hayes; 1= Chevrolet

What does the 5 indicate?  Is 9 actual year of manufacture or just production year 69?

552  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: z-28 hood stripes on: June 15, 2007, 01:44:23 PM
I have seen  a magazine article on the 69 Z burgundy with red stripes maybe 10-15 years ago? Might still have the magazine. I'll give it a look see. Can't remember too much, but as I recall, I was convinced at the time it was real. Maybe it had full owner history, I do not recall. Didn't find the combination really appealing, almost too unusual to be anything but authentic??

553  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Main Seal leak on: June 14, 2007, 07:15:45 AM
Thanks Jerry. It's not bad, I can live with it. I was just wondering if there is some "secret' or "trick" to insure it will not leak again if I re-did it. I had the motor redone many years ago by a "professional", and it was leaking again in 3 months. So much for my clean undercarriage!! Maybe small blocks, like dogs, like to leave their mark!

554  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rear Main Seal leak on: June 13, 2007, 03:58:37 PM
I have the traditional rear main seal oil drip on my 69 Z 302. Engine runs well, so this is just an annoyance. Can this be fixed removing only the pan, oil pump, and rear main cap?, i.e. without major disassembly. And with a high degree of confidence it will not leak again? Or live with it? Adding oil is no big deal, but it gets oil all over the bottom of the engine/trans, the major cause of my annoyance. Thanks.

555  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: No partial VIN on blocks on: June 06, 2007, 02:32:01 PM
With the way things are going with these forgeries, is there any possibility of someone going to the trouble of setting up a broaching operation to replicate the original block deck machining process?? Is it possible? Would it be financially viable?
