Everyone says you don't want 3.31 or 3.55 gears in a Z - too hard to launch. You never hear that with a LT1.
It performs about the same as the 302, but with more torque on the low-end.
In 1970, the Trans-Am series allowed for destroking motors. So Chevrolet went with the LT1 in production and TA teams destroked it back to a 302 for the track.

If you want originality, it needs a 302. If you want a driver and more torque across the spectrum, then a stroked 302. Y'all remember the Z29 feature car?

Obviously, this is heresy to some. Smiley

I wouldn't put a 302 in anything by choice. Realize several of the TA teams reputedly cheated and ran stroked 302's (aka LT1 350's).
The *only* reason Chevrolet made the 302 is because of TA rules. When the rules allowed it, Chevy went to the LT1.
A little balancing and you'll have more power and same rpm....

If you do go the original route, I'd note William's advise and not sweat the details. 15x7 rally's are cheap, correct AD's are not. Etc.

I think it's a Z, but with the axle being replaced too (Nov axle in a Sept car), proof is minimal. Sad

Bill, I was wondering if you would notice. Smiley 

Actually, most 4.10's went into Z28's. L78's got more of a range of axles - 3.55 to 4.10.
I'll be more specific: Most of the BV axles were much closer, but I see another Feb LOS car with that same date.

05C NOR - peaked

An early Dec axle in a late Feb car is possible. Most of the axles were much closer, but I see another Feb LOS car with that same date.

When does NCRS say the car was built?
Single fuel line? BB frame mounts and heater core?

I generated those color % numbers. They are here: http://www.camaros.org/exterior.shtml#ColorPercentages

Sounds like a nice car. Did I see the car recently for sale? It looks familar.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 SS 396 / 375 assistance on: March 22, 2015, 11:17:57 PM
Sorry, nothing on that VIN. Close, but that doesn't count.
What's the axle stamp?
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: T-3 Headlights on: March 22, 2015, 11:21:52 AM
Here's a chart with the different versions of T3.
And the stamp decode.

Calculating the combination of two options is a guess. The combination of three features has a lot more error.

Look at how many colors there were. Even the most popular color was about 10%.

Gentleman maybe I'm missing something here.... we went from a guy selling parts to a car stripper?
No, two different stories. Gary was writing about a different seller he didn't buy from.

About.
I'd say there were more RS convertibles than that just because if you were spending money on a ragtop, you were after looks...

These weren't that rare back in the day. But they are now....
