Love to get a few more votes and opinions.  Otherwise going to shut this one down soon.
1922  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 307/327/350 on: October 18, 2006, 08:51:43 AM
In a Camaro, yes, October would be too early for a 307.  I've never seen the data that Richard mentioned, but it certainly sounds accurate.  But general reference, like Hooper, lists the changeover as 1/69.

You mention the present ME suffix, but no VIN on the pad.  I assume the present motor is a 327.  What transmission and what numbers on that?  Is there an engine code with that ME?  Richard is right: It is hard to "back into" what a car originally was without documentation.  Post all the numbers you can find, trim tag and all.

There are a couple of rally green 69s posted here:

Prior to 68 "Parking lights" in a legal sense were for parking. But in 68 the law now required better night visability so side marker lights were added and parking lights in essence became "driving lights".

Are you sure you just don't need to lubricate the speedo cable.  A year or so ago, the speedometer on my 68 buzzed and jumped around.  A little lubrication and it's worked fine since.  Your local parts store should have the lubricant (It's got graphite in it... although some folks swear by white grease and a low viscosity oil combination.)  The point is you will have the cable out as it is, so if it looks dry, try the cheap fix first.

Take a look at these threads:

17057020 = Won't be in "the book", because it's a post 1975 carb. But look on page 154.  The 170 prefix started in 76.

7028212 = 1968 MV used in Camaro with 327/275HP A/T or 350/295HP A/T and in several other Chevy applications.
1929  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Which is right? on: October 11, 2006, 11:11:47 AM
In reading things it says that all SS's are big blocks.
Confused, as other things I read say 350 is a small block.

Go read it again.  It should say "All BB were SS".  There's a difference.  That does not rule out 350s.  All 67-68 350s were SS.

Go re-read this:  http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#PerformanceModels  --under performace engines.

And this:  http://www.camaros.org/engine.shtml#CamaroEngines  --under what was available.

Some of this stuff can be confusing....

Go up to the top of this page, click on those buttons and start reading.
Start here, under question 10 (about history):
http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml
Go to question 9 and order first:
Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9

Gather the numbers and anything you cannot figure out, post under Decoding and CRG will help you.  I'm sure you will get more advice from others.  Welcome to the "club"!

(Looking back at your other two posts, I see you've already posted your cowl tag...)

Take a look at this Chevron site:
http://www.chevron.com/products/prodserv/fuels/bulletin/unld-gas/
It gives some detail as to why JohnZ is giving you good advise.
1932  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 07, 2006, 05:38:48 PM
Mark,

BTW, the picture below of my 5 blade fan and clutch shows why I noticed a difference.  See how much "fatter" the blades look?  And yes, my car has A/C, which explains all the belts in the picture.
1933  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Cost of Camaro on: October 07, 2006, 05:31:06 PM
Mark,

Where is the Camaro Specialties in your picture?
There is another one in Charlotte, NC = Young's Camaro Specialties.
1934  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Originally a 6 cyl, now a SS 396 Clone on: October 07, 2006, 02:54:31 PM
Hotrod is right.  Take a look at the rear springs, too.  They should be multi-leaf for a 396. Unless it is a REAL BARGAIN, pass on it and find a better car.
1935  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: October 06, 2006, 11:24:01 AM
Thanks, Hotrod & Joe.  Actually, that's part of the reason I started this poll.  The previous owner of my car restored it half in the direction of sport and half in the direction of luxury. (Actually, he went in so many different directions, it's hard to tell...) When I finally decide to give up driving it for a while and put the big bucks into it, I've got to go in one direction or the other.  Both of you make a good point about how it depends on the look and the purpose. Take another look at Summertime's black on black 68 RS above.

On the other hand there were some 60s muscle cars of various models ordered with BB motors and vinyl tops.  I had a buddy in college that had a 71 red BB Chevelle, SS, stripes, and yes, a black vinyl top.  Everybody loved that car! It was sort of like an "I want it all" attitude.  How else would you explain a BB RS/SS Camaro?  Come to think of it, however, my buddy got his one night when he pulled up next to a dog bowl hubcapped, plain jane Camaro.  Turned out to be a COPO.

What do the rest of you think???
