Hotrod,

Sadly, Dave is right.  68 trim tags don't tell you about options.
But then, everyone has that issue and without the papers no one has absolute proof.
So, you going to have to look at numbers and "likelihood".
Is the car matching numbers?
What about the RPOs doesn't make sense?

I drove over 200 miles this Labor Day weekend --dodging the rain clouds.  Got an email from Dave, who drove to a car show and showed his car for the first time!  How about you?

Vote and Post!

Keep us all updated on your progress.  I've learned more from other people's questions (and mistakes!) than my own.

Thanks.  Ddin't catch the ashtray being included.  Like I said above, I've seen the obvious stuff (Assembly, Service, etc.).  What I'm hoping to find is GM info. on their use of fiber optics.  Guess I need to search the Vette info. from that time.  I do understand it was standard in Vettes by 1968.

I have found that sort of stuff may not have been as cutting edge in the 60s  as I thougt.  Apparently, Alexander Graham Bell held the first US patent.

So, I guess my question is:  "Does anybody have any tech info. on GM's use of fiber optics?"

If you were talking about "rattle canning" the engine compartment, I might say think twice.  Getting too quick with the spray can could coverup some original info. there.  But the trunk is a must do.  Enio45 is right.  In fact, lots of folks go straight to the trunk (looking for rust) when they first size up a car.
1836  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / U46 Light Monitoring on: September 04, 2006, 08:48:48 PM
I'm looking for more information on the U46 Light Monitoring option.  I know it appeared in Camaros in 1968 (standard on Vette) and was actually pretty advanced since it was fiber optic.  I've seen the option sheets in the AIM and the description of how the system worked in 12-2 of the 68  Service Manual.  Does anybody have any further information or know where I could find it?
Appreciate the help!
1837  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Radio on: September 03, 2006, 11:33:39 AM
Thanks, Ed.  I can probaly talk him into taking the face plate off even before the show.  At least then, he will know.
1838  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Radio on: September 03, 2006, 09:31:41 AM
Mr396, I may be mis-speaking about the radio being a repo.  Ed has me thinking it is a Firebird radio --that looks brand new. (I wonder if you can refinish the face plate, etc and make it look new?)  He doesn't really know where it came from. (There's absolutely no history on his car, and for all we know, a previous owner got it off Ebay. It's one of those cars that looks original, but when you start checking numbers, it's not...)  But now that I have the part numbers, I may offer to help him pull and check it --after he shows it.  If I find out anything worth noting, I'll let you know.

Come to think of it... do radios have the part number on them? Where?

Thanks for the info. Ed!

I'm already looking for parts for a couple of fellows in Charlotte in Sept.  Maybe, I'll luck on to somebody with a truck load of radios who doesn't know what they're worth...  Not counting on that!  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

Dave,

I'll look for the cover... email me about how much are you willing to pay before Sept 15.  I have no clue about its value.

So, from Rich's picture I'm assuming that the powerglide linkage is always a problem on getting the numbers --unless you move the linkage or have the motor out???  Bummer!
1840  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Finding the Correct Underhood Lamp on: September 03, 2006, 06:26:39 AM
Foolish me... We evn looked under "lamp".
If somebody wants to do a study on interpreting the P&A, I'd read it!
Thanks, Ed... again!
1841  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Radiator Support Assembly on: September 03, 2006, 06:24:26 AM
Nope...  Know the guy who writes his pay check though...
1842  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Finding the Correct Underhood Lamp on: September 02, 2006, 09:35:14 PM
Ed & Steve,

BTW, how did you find that info.?  The P & A?  If the P & A, what was it listed under?
I about tore my friend's P & A apart looking for that lamp, but didn't find it under "hood, lamp, under, assembly" and half a dozen other words...
1843  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Radio on: September 02, 2006, 09:30:43 PM
Ed,

Yes on the tinting, but also the general look...

I've got a friend who thinks his radio is original.  But in several ways it doesn't look right --including the clearer Firebird look.  I think the thing is a very nice repo.  He's going to show it in a couple of weeks.  (It looks and sounds great, so obviously, he does not want to rip it out!) Lucky for him I'm not juding that one!

I'm also on the look for one myself.  (Right now, I've got an obvious repo.)  At that same show, I'm going to stroll the swap and vendor aisles, looking for a bargain.  In my case, it doesn't even matter if it works...

Thanks!

Dan,

Bingo!  I knew the Corvair light looked like what you had described.  If you will look at the Ebay picture that Ed posted, it looks just like the one on my friend's Corvair (hanging upside down).  If you want a replacement, look at junked Corvairs or Novas, as well.
1845  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Finding the Correct Underhood Lamp on: September 02, 2006, 08:40:18 PM
Does anyone know if the 67 hood lamp assembly was the same as the Corvair?
