Production seems to be about evenly split between 388 and 618 blocks (both were made about the same timeframes).
2777  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: I have seached the site........but......... on: November 29, 2007, 12:25:18 AM
Corrected (and clarified):
The date that the block was made is cast into the rear of the block (where the bellhousing bolts up), right behind the distributor boss.

I assume that's correct for BB too, but can't easily confirm.

Anyone know which side of the block for the big blocks that "have the cast date next to the engine mounts, near the freeze plugs"?

Because the rules for vinyl top cars were different from convertibles. Go figure......

Can you post a pic of the stipe ticks? I'm not quite following....
2779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Yutivo Camaro Finds New Home on: November 15, 2007, 11:29:51 PM
Congratulations! The 68 Yutivos seem to be the hardest to find. What color is it?
When you get a chance, could you send me a picture of the VIN tag? It also has the color and interior codes on it.
We'd also be interested in any of the drivetrain (engine, trans, axle) codes. http://www.camaros.org/drivetrain.shtml

And I assume you've seen: http://www.camaros.org/yutivo.shtml

Thanks!!
2780  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 388 block casting date vs build date on: November 15, 2007, 11:19:55 PM
I'd like a picture of the engine pad, if possible. Smiley

Thanks!
2781  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: I have a 12 bolt question on: November 15, 2007, 01:39:38 AM
I concur, it's a 70 Nova axle. Will fit fine in a 67-9 Camaro. Smiley

Ron,
All the color relationships are documented in the exterior color decode section, including the exceptions.
Just one of these exceptions (#4) is being rightfully questioned.
2783  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: orphan list question on: November 11, 2007, 11:47:57 PM
That's what the search function is for. Smiley
Don't search for the complete VIN, just the last 8, e.g. 7N123456.
2784  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Carb 69 396 325hp on: November 08, 2007, 10:10:15 PM
I do not think that's the correct carb for an auto car.
2785  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: red hockey stripe on 69 and hounds tooth on: November 08, 2007, 10:01:11 AM
I think that white ebay car would have proved the theory I had if it had a red stripe. But my guess is that the black stripe on that car now is correct, being a nice survivor that was restored, why would they have changed a red stripe to black. You usually copy what was there.

That car is not a survivor. It originally was a L65 car that has been made into an SS350.

I'm not convinced your car is an exception, but with only one datapoint, it's hard to make any conclusions.
One thing is for sure, it's a minor paint 'rule' that wouldn't affect many cars.

Black with a green roof - I missed that combo. Thankfully, I've never seen one like that....
2786  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: red hockey stripe on 69 and hounds tooth on: November 06, 2007, 08:24:42 PM
Ron,
That car was a 50-50 color.

The question is:  Was the rule of not a red stripe when the car had a vinyl top alway valid? Bob's car is an exception to that rule. Was the rule incorrectly written and v.top cars got red stripes too?

Bob is looking to see what a car like this one would have looked like new:  50-B  719, painted now with a black stripe.

Hi Bob! Now I know who you are. Smiley  Welcome!

I know of no silver, black, or white cars that have original paint and should have a red stripe, so no way to test your theory. Sad

The fenders were pierced on the Chevrolet side, should be the same on all cars.
2788  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: red hockey stripe on 69 and hounds tooth on: November 05, 2007, 10:22:18 AM
I'm not totally clear on your question.
You looked at http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#ExteriorColors?
Specifically footnote #4?
2789  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Is CRG still collecting, (in need of), data on window glass markings? on: November 04, 2007, 11:23:41 PM
Thank for the offer. If we have the rest of the data on a car, we'll generally collect glass info too. But we're not chasing it. Smiley

>My Jan 69 build date has the following glass - (all original):
>Passenger door - July 68
>Passenger quarter - Aug 68
>Driver Door - Jan 69
>Driver quarter - Sept 68

That's quite the spread. Is that a LOS car?
2790  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DX-1 Stripe on: November 04, 2007, 11:11:52 AM
The D88 multi-colored nose stripe was in 68. Zero production total.
There's a promo picture of it somewhere and it's in the AIM. We've seen one car with it but are not convinced it is original.
