2058  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need help before buying (cowl Tag info) on: May 25, 2006, 05:07:44 PM
Sprint1004,
Tell us something about the car... what kind of shape is it in..?  what's the asking price...?  Huh
Joe and Dave decoded the tag for you, but if you are really looking for a 69 take a look here :http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#CowlTag 
and here: http://www.camaros.org/diffs69.shtml
snd here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml
If you are new to this, you want as much info. in hand as you can get when you are out looking!
Good luck!  And seriously, share info, about the car...  Grin Grin Grin

And whoops!  Roll Eyes  If you share info. beyond the numbers, we really ought to take that to General Discussion.

I see your dilemma!  And on initial reaction, I would say "Surprise the new owner".

But my second and third thoughts are based on some questions:
As the car is being offered now, is it a reasonable price? 
Do you know something about this dealer that makes you wary?  (Yes, I know even the nicest dealer would increase the price on a documented car!)
Once the car is sold, do you think (or have some way of knowing) the dealer will reveal the buyer?  (If you ask the dealer now, he would be a fool to not ask "WHY?")
Since you have such information, is your ultimate responsibilty not to make sure that the information does not get lost?

Again, remembering what John said...
The October 1967 P&A says, "62-68 Chevy, Camaro, Chevelle... CAP ASSY., oil fliter (tube guage)... 5690846". It makes no mention of 7803820. And that's not a misprint. It does say "filter" for 5690846.
2061  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Ethanol in the tank on: May 22, 2006, 09:40:40 PM
Golden Eagle's "STA-BIL" is only one of several gas stabilizers you can and should use --if any gasoline powered motor is going to sit for a long period of time.  Ethanol or not, gasoline can eventually "break down".  If you do drive it once a month for several gallons, you are probably OK. 
If you are that concerned about your tank (I have seen tanks that sat for a long period of time that looked great on the outside but were all rust and sludge on the inside.) consider cleaning it or having it cleaned professionally.  Look at this from Chevy Trucks: http://www.chevytrucks.org/tech/gastank.htm
If your car sits a lot and/or you do not drive it many miles a year, you should also be changing your oil by the calendar, not just by miles.

You may be tragically right about GM getting in too late.  It took them three full production years to get into the pony car market, and by '73 the emission standards really slowed down the muscle car market.  BY 2010 we may all be paying $10 a gallon for gas or driving hydrogen cars.  I never thought about the Vette being a better buy.  But you've got a real idea there.  We may also be fighting very hard in every state to exempt classic cars from gas guzzler taxes, etc. by then!
2064  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 19, 2006, 03:21:06 PM
Thanks John.  That's a very pertinent point about "production" vs. "service" parts.

We actually have two different questions going here, and the second question seems to have superseded the original. 

So, a 68 cap 5690846 was metal and generally painted black with some possible exceptions to the paint... 

You 69 guys can solve the other question...

You cannot use "Quick Reply" below.  Click on the reply tab and on that reply page you will see "Additional Options".  That will allow you to "Browse" your computer and attach the pictures from there.

That's why I was hoping someone with a P&A that covers those years would jump in...
So, Steve, are you verifying that there was no other cap "listed" from 5690846 to 7803820? 
In other words, what p/n(s) covered 69 cap(s)?
If 5690846 changed from metal to plastic in 69 at any time, would that have been reflected in the p/n?
2067  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 18, 2006, 03:07:07 PM
Richard and Jeff, thanks for the pictures.  Great thread!  I guess we all learned something.  I did!

OK, but you did say, "just purchased a '67". 
It certainly sounds like a decent deal for under 13K.  The missing cowl tag may explain the price.  A 67 SS could easily go above 20K, even in poorer shape than you are describing.

Do note what Richard said about why you are buying the car and your sense of investment.

Again, make sure there is a clear title.  You can buy a new cowl tag for it.  But that will impact the value and originality of the car.  No doubt you can get your money out of it and more later on, especially if you find someone who is looking for a driver, not an original show car.

In the end, many of us are driving cars with non-matching numbers, etc., including myself.  That doesn't make cruising any less fun!  Go for it!  And do post us some pictures.
