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?

No idea.
I just redid the drivetrain decoding section (to be published soon) and am working on a couple of other things too.

No.

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.
2920  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!
2921  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z munice on: January 24, 2007, 02:28:07 AM
No. Just data gather over years of work.
2922  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 3919803 Intake (327/275 HP and 350/295 HP???) on: January 24, 2007, 02:23:03 AM
Yes, there are some 67 L30's and L48's in the database that used that intake. All are June cars.
Yes, with 291 heads (one car has a 291 and a March 462).
2923  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 master cylinder research question on: January 21, 2007, 06:33:03 PM
I do know that casting was used across most of the Chevy line and was used for several years. I do not know when that casting was first released.
2924  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 (Sept 66) convertible on: January 21, 2007, 02:43:28 AM
Some of the very first cars built were convertibles. The pilot cars were used to prove out the production process and consisted of all models. Production (after the pilots) was generally low option cars for the first 2000 cars, then a full mix from then on out.

Can you post your trim tag data?

Yeah, I edited his post but couldn't figure out how to delete the poll. Smiley
2925  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 master cylinder research question on: January 21, 2007, 02:30:06 AM
I'd guess that it was changed. While they don't fail often, it wouldn't be a surprising warranty replacement item.

Thanks for taking the time to help!
