Anyone have any experience with this place? Car Man's Garage -  http://www.carmansgarage.com/category/vintage.restorationbatteries/
They only have the R59, but it sounds interesting. They say the batteries have modern internals. Reseller?

Poking around, I found at least 3 other manufacturers (I assume none are not resellers):
* Axion Power Battery New Castle, PA 16105   724-654-9300
(sounds like the company that bought New Castle Battery)

* Restoration Battery, Cincinnati, OH   513-574-4481

* Antique Auto Battery, Hudson, OH    800-426-7580

That blue JL8 car sold at auction a few months ago for $140K. This time $162.5K.

They reset the body # at the beginning of the model year and did not reset during the model year (ie no when the 70's came out). There is no such thing as a 70 1/2.

Martin measured that one for me:
3857042 body is 1 9/32" plus tit is 5/32"

Martin, can you confirm that dimension?

Rob, what is your measurement of the part?
2828  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Seat Belt Tag on: January 29, 2007, 04:15:43 PM
No idea.
I just redid the drivetrain decoding section (to be published soon) and am working on a couple of other things too.

I'd looked into this in detail a little bit ago. The change happened in May, Jerry's car is one of the first. April cars are all top posts. I had it narrowed down to exactly when, but I need to look again.

Usages:
67, 68, and early 69 L6, 307, and Z28: The standard battery was the Delco Y55 (reverse polarity)

67, 68, and early 69 327, 350, 396, and 427: The standard battery was the R59 (61 A-hr).

Late 69 L6, 307, and Z28: The standard battery became the Delco Y77 with side posts.

Late 69 350, 396, and 427: The standard battery became the Delco R79 with side posts.

Here's the info from my uncompleted seatbelt article (just was working on it again, that's good!)

Location                   Standard   Deluxe
Front lap, bucket seat   237         137
Center lap, bench seat  235         131
Front shoulder       277 (coupe)177 (coupe)
                           ?   (convertible) ?  (convertible)
Rear lap                      231          131

Dates:
A one or two digit number indicating the production week, a single letter (apparently related to which plant (or possibly production line) produced the part), and the two-digit calendar year number.

Paul,
The car would have been built at the end of Feb, beginning of March. So that engine date looks fine. Smiley

Problem with finding the car is
1 - it's not around anymore
2 - it's not registered. Someone looking for my Z would not find it via the DMV because I've never registered it. So the car could just be sitting in a garage somewhere in pieces.
I'd say the chance of finding it are low, but we have reunited several (blocks, POP's, etc) with the original cars over the years, so the chances are not zero. Smiley

Thanks for the pics!

CH = Factory Inspector on Production Line

Nope. Smiley
CH = broadcast code.
2834  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Is this vin in the CRG database? on: January 25, 2007, 06:45:22 PM
No, it's not in there.
Can I get a good picture of the engine pad?
Thanks!

No. Just data gather over years of work.
