1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / dash replacement VIN on: December 03, 2014, 01:09:47 AM
I have a Canadian-documented 69Z.  There is no question about the VIN - the dash VIN has not been messed with, nor have the matching cowl and firewall VIN stamps been altered.  However, the dash has serious rust damage and was covered in bondo and paint.  I'm debating replacing the dash panel, which means I'll have to remove the current VIN tag and fasten it onto to a new dash. 

Should I do this, or should I work very hard at keeping the original dash?  Am I forever going to be plagued with questions as to the VIN?

Thanks

Is this real or a re-stamp?  Thanks
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 772 fans and unstamped fans on: October 09, 2014, 07:57:02 PM

According to what I have read, there were two types of fans produced in 69 - the 772 stamped fan and the unstamped variety.  According to Jerry's 69Z book, the unstamped was far more common, while Kurt's CRG report states:

•There were two versions of an 'unstamped' fan made by Hayes-Albion. 3947838 was the earlier 2" pitch version and 3956684 was the later 2.25" pitch version.

I interpret these comments to mean that the unstamped fan was available throughout the 69 production year such that a 69Z could have had either - and would most likely have an unstamped fan.  Is this correct?  The reason I ask is that I hear again and again from restorers (and HBC included) that the unstamped fan was an 'early' fan and that the dated 772 was used almost exclusively later in the production year.

OK, to be even more specific, would a 5C car have an unstamped 2.25" pitch fan?! 

Thanks!

Stamp or re-stamp?  

Thanks

Hi Kurt

By 'yikes' I assume you mean likely a restamp, and a poor one at that?

Car was in NY, but is now in Canada
Car is dusk blue with blue deluxe interior.  I'm not 100% certain, but the trim tag appears to me to be OK.  I'm more concerned with the block and transmission stamps.

Hi
I'm looking at  a blue 69 Z. Any thoughts on whether these items look legit?  The VIN and dates line up; however, the partial VINs are crooked.  Not sure if this suspicious or not.  This car was the subject of a magazine article several years back.
Thanks!

Alright, thanks Ed.

Not sure where to post this: 

Was looking at a Z28 for sale with VIN 124379L507798.   Would CRG have any information in its database about this VIN?

Thanks

Here's the block VIN.

Case number is 660 and the dates line up.  But the font on transmission VIN stamp doesn't match the font type of block VIN stamp, which I now remember being told should match.  I think I've answered my question.
