At least ask about:
1. Any original documentation (build sheet, POP, sticker, etc.)
2. Any resto. or replacement along the way (and what happened to original)
3. The history of the car working toward original owner and/or dealership of origin.
But ultimately what you need is #1.  If you cannot get that then you have to piece the puzzle together as best you can from other info. in 2 & 3.

Good luck!

Thanks, Dave.
Although I already have my tower clamps, they aren't on the car yet.  So it will be great to have pictures (especially your original smog hose clamp) to show my group.  Thanks again for the hint on how to install them.  That's a February porject for me.

Adam,

To your knowledge, since I live in Florida, will the Florida DMV have information on previous owners that were titled out of Florida? I assume they won't and I will  be the only one on the list. I would also think it should tell me the last state it was registered in.

From what the email from Ms. Hall at the FDMV says, I probably will not be able to answer your question.  My car was with the previous owner in Florida prior to 96, and the FDMV was crystal clear that all I'm getting for my $15 is 10 years of microfiche records for Florida($75 seems like robbery). 

I know about the previous owner by that "quiet" method --even got a copy of the Florida title through my dealer.

But, hey, it's only 15 dollars, so first chance I get I'll fill out the form and see what happens.  In the meantime, I'm going to follow Rich's #2 suggestion with the previous owner and see if I can find out where he got it from...

Steve,

So the clamps are varied.  Guess they pulled them out of a big box on the assembly line...

Yes, I can get the part numbers, but not having a 67 or 69 AIM I could not tell which type of clamp the number represents.  In the end I needed to know the type, not the number.  (Gary gave me the radiator info. earlier in the thread.)  I've got what I needed.  Thanks!  (All my Chevelle buddies are duly impressed at the vast knowledge we can get from CRG!)  Grin  Grin  Grin

Adz28,

I don't live in Florida, the car came out of Florida a couple of years ago.  I live in NC.
Here's the link for the Florida title request form:
http://www3.hsmv.state.fl.us/Intranet/dmv/Forms/BTR/85054.pdf

Rich,
Both of your suggestions are working so far with Florida.  They say they only have 10 years worth of records, but they do have a microfiche option for a few bucks more.  Going to pursue that... Your second suggestion is exactly what I did (earliest reference to a dealer) and they told me to make a request under the research option in their privacy act.  I now know the Florida owners of the car back to 96, so that's a start...
1791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: finding original owner on: January 12, 2007, 10:00:49 AM
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...
1792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tower Clamps on: January 11, 2007, 11:11:42 PM
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?
1793  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...)
1795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tower Clamps on: January 11, 2007, 09:09:06 PM
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.
1797  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...
1798  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Battery question for my '69 on: January 10, 2007, 10:52:51 PM
Put in an original style battery:
http://www.restorationbattery.com/products.html
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!


1799  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.
1800  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?
