I just emailed the Florida DMV. The reply says with the properly filled out form and $15, I can get a 10 year history.  That's because they only keep 10 years of records.  (Back to the problem of what they keep on computer, I mentioned above.)  I spoke of research in my email, because that's one of the reasons they will release info. under their privacy act.  Of course, I don't have the info, yet...

Steve,

Can you see the date code on your original tower clamps?

If they were mixed at mid-68, then my 12D 68 would be okay with tower clamps on both heater and radiator hoses?
1773  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tower Clamps on: January 11, 2007, 10:09:41 PM
So...
For 67 to Mid 68, it's spring clamps on heater hoses and tower clamps on radiator.
For Mid 68 to 69 it's tower clamps on both.

My 68 AIM shows spring clamps on heater hoses, dated May of 67.  Can Gary or anyone else bring it down to what month that changed?

Also, like some of you observed, the p/n for even the same kind of clamp (tower or spring) differs depending on application. (The lower rad. clamp is larger then the upper.)

See, Ed, even this old dog can learn a new trick.  I followed your (and Joe's) instructions.  I will properly post pictures and sin no more!
(OK, I'll properly post pictures...)

Thanks, Dave.

What I really need for you to do is look at the Radiator hose and Heater hose pages and see what the clamps look like in the picture.  Then, tell me what kind of clamps they are (tower, spring, etc.).  It would be great if you could also list the numbers for those clamps from each page.  I can find the numbers in the P&A, but that does tell me which type of clamp it is.

I know tower clamps are a pain, but we're discussing originality in my group...

BTW, I just emailed you about part of your question from your recent thread.

Phillip

Whoops!  Thanks Steve.  (Now, Im getting info. faster than I can keep up with it!)
I do not have a 67 AIM, but UPC 1/A8 is heater hose, right?  And the V-8 shows spring clamps. (We were just discussing V-8, so that's fine about the L-6).  Now, if someone will tell me about the radiator clamps (its UPC 6/B1 in the 68 AIM)...

I really appreciate this, guys!

Phillip

Kev68,

The 68 Assembly Manual under UPC N30/A1 clearly shows this deluxe wheel, including the difference in emblems (insignia) I mentioned above.  Also, the Oct. 1, 1967 revised P&A 34 lists your black deluxe steering wheel as:

6.51 Wheel Assembly, steering
68 Camaro w/del. wheel......9747536

The deluxe steering wheel also came in gold, red, turquoise and blue in 68. If your car has RPO Z23 or Z87, it came with that option.  If it doesn't, then it was one of the 9178 N30s ordered seperately in 68.
1777  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tower Clamps on: January 11, 2007, 10:10:33 AM
Thanks for the confirmation on the 68.
What we really need is someone with a 67 AIM to tell us what it says...

Put in an original style battery:

If you're worried about a judge counting off for POR 15, then you definitely don't need a yellow-top Wally battery or any other current style.  That's the first thing you would see...


OK, I stand corrected by John and Rich below...  But if you're going to have it judged, I do know that can make a difference...  But now that JohnZ has suggested a battery topper as being acceptable... Buy the new Delco and a topper for show, you'll still come out cheaper!


1779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: steering wheel on: January 10, 2007, 10:33:01 PM
The 68 N30 wheel did have the appropriate insignia for the car as ordered.  Thus, your 68 RS/SS has an SS insignia.  The picture I posted is a 68 N30 off a standard coupe, so it has the bowtie.
1780  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: finding original owner on: January 10, 2007, 06:55:55 PM
Sure... I've seen dealers, etc. have the ability to help the process on a couple of ocassions.  They know the system.

Adz28,
Do you know how Florida DMV responds to inquiries?
1781  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: finding original owner on: January 10, 2007, 01:49:19 PM
Depends on the state... Sometimes that's more of a matter of the kinds of records the state kept and how they converted them over to computer.  Any of them that will are going to want proof of present ownership and probably a fee.  If you have a friend in the car business or law enforcement, you might want to "quietly" pursue that line of search.
1782  Site Comments / Discussion / Site Comments/Discussion / Resource buttons? on: January 10, 2007, 09:19:53 AM
Would it be possible to get the various resource buttons on the bottom of the forum pages?  I realize they are on the "newCRGforum" page, but that makes for several extra clicks when you're researching something....
1783  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: steering wheel on: January 10, 2007, 09:08:01 AM
Here's what a 68 N30 does look like...

If it doesn't have any cracks or bad scratches, you are lucky.  There are still some of them around, but most are cracked.  And for exactly the reason that Rich mentioned, they are gradually becoming rare.

Don,

The last couple of years at the AACA auto fair at Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, NC through the Road and Track booth, they have been gathering stories for an update of The Cobra In The Barn.  Tom Cotter lives in Davidson, NC.

After you finish your documentation, you really ought to submit your story!  I'll be talking to one of the AACA district officers soon.  I'll see if they have contact information.

Congratulations!  All of us will be taking an extra look at every used car lot when we drive by...  Grin
