Thanks, John!  Am I correct that an assembly sequence number would be the "locked in" number that you mention in your report on the assembly process?

Sorry to be a little slow in getting back to this... Have to work every now and then to keep my toys up!

Last week I (finally) got original pictures from a previous owner before he painted the firewall in a restoration.  The 254 was the only such marking visible on the whole wall --just like you said.  Like Jonesy's 252, it was mostly covered by the heater box.  There was no sign of PTB markings.

On top of the blackout paint...
1743  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Firewall Number on: March 12, 2007, 02:04:50 PM
I know this is a shot in the dark, but anyone have any idea what the number "254" means crayoned on the firewall (near heater box). I know about firewall markings in general.  I just can't figure out 254...
Thanks in advance.

The problem with companies like State Farm is usually the agent not knowing what you are talking about.  (BTW, I have had my other cars covered by State Farm for over 30 years.)  Some agents seldom get a classic car request, and they wind up not quoting it right.

Still wondering if anyone knows anything about Infinity group???

There are several references that are constanly noted here...
Start here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#InfoSources
Also, Ed had a post a while back that gives several other good references.  You might want to hunt for that... or he might see this and post it again...

Thanks, Steve.  Actually, I've just completed the history of my car.  My trim tag says "YY", but the original owner drove it off the lot with a vinyl top --original dealer installed.  You make a good point about contrast.  In fact, the original owner had the top installed because it really set off a butternut yellow car. So, I'm keeping the vinyl and carrying my documentation to shows.
Let's hear from the rest of you... Post pictures and vote!

I agree with Paul, especially in terms of fit (and obviously, originality), go original if you can.  Beyond the E-scene, if you haven't discovered the best junk yards and swap meets in your area, you should.
I'd be afraid to quote you a real price, as they vary at swap meets, too.

We had a good conversation about suppliers a while back:

As you can see opinions vary...

"Choices"; i.e., options were part of the appeal in those days.  It was certainly part of the sales pitch --wide variety of motors and options.  Wish that were "truer" nowadays. 
1749  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 clonsole clock info on: March 06, 2007, 03:55:06 PM
FYI:

The part number for a 68 console clock would be 3921410.
$200 may not be a bad price.  The list price for a replacement was $32.30 in the early 70s.
I'd say Paul made a good save from the "crusher".

Vote...
Offer us an opinion and/or a picture...

Hey Booya420,
So is your car a genuine 67 Z?
Beyond Jerry's books, which are VERY helpful, look at this article by Kurt: http://www.camaros.org/emissions.shtml
I found it very helpful in understanding the whole smog device business.
Gotta love CRG!  Grin

Ed and others,

Thanks for the help, so far...

$125!!! for 68 baffles?!?!  That sheetmetal shop is starting to sound like a good idea!

Again, seal #3937126 was sealed with two sided tape in 68... Does that tape look like the same stuff that is now on weather stripping?
1754  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Car Insurance on: March 02, 2007, 12:28:31 PM
A question and a comment:

Does anyone know anything about Infinity that just bought out Great American's Classic Collector's program?

As long as we're all reading over our policies (including those very important notes by Mark), watch out for "attachments" (those other pages or little pamphlets that they send along with your policy).  There are all sorts of interesting attachments that limit the company's liability --even if you have a declared value.  The most infamous is a "Lesser of" attachment (similar to Mark's note), which limits what they pay to a lesser amount --often tied to "Cash Value".

I want to pick back up on the AC sealing question...

Learned a lot from here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1171.0;all

The 68 AIM, C60/B3, mentions several seals... I've been hunting for over a year and nobody has any original to sell and I can only find seal #3937126 in repo.
 
Does anyone know a source (yes, even repo) of the other seals? (Am I just not looking in the right place?)
Does anyone have any more pictures of the various seals in original cars (Ed has helped a lot, thanks.)
We established in the above post (and from the AIM) that clips were not used in 68.  It was double-sided tape.  Can anyone describe was that looks like?

68rsss327 has asked how the seal went across the fender braces in another post.

I (and I believe others) would really appreciate the help!  Grin
