2941  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: trunk spatter painted before or after balast installation on: July 03, 2007, 12:55:54 AM
The shakers were installed after the trunk was painted. They were hung in the trunk, painted with the trunk, and then installed.
The bolts will not have splatter paint on them. Smiley

I'm convinced the changeover was Jan 1. I have not seen any data that conflicts with that date.

And they were not just using up the 68 engines. They built the engines to a schedule and did not stockpile them.

Can you post or email me a pic of the cowl tag? I should be able to tell if it matches....

912 is the line rate (57/ hr) multiplied by 2 shifts (16 hours). OT and line issues would affect the actual #.

And Firebirds would be included in that #.

For those who don't know, it's a Camaro only show in Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti, Michigan.
Nice show, nice location in a park.

Joe,
That's the correct color. Whatever you choose to call it. Smiley

2951  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: z-28 hood stripes on: June 24, 2007, 11:22:12 PM
A few years back, I did email back and forth with a guy who said he was the original owner of a burgundy Z with red stripes. I asked for any early pics but never heard back from him on that topic.

BTW, 69 SS couldn't have special order stripe colors because part of the stripe was a decal.....
2952  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Early LA VIN# on: June 24, 2007, 11:08:32 PM
Production was a ramp-up, with the first units slowly progressing down the line to prove-out the tooling and station processes.
Do you have a picture of the trim tag or the data off of it? Any info on the original configuration of the car?

Thanks!
Kurt

Same answer as here:

Fake....

I've heard of burgundy Z's with red stripes, but I've not seen proof.

I have seen an original paint burgundy Z with white stripes, still all original. That's proof. Smiley

It's possible that special Z stripe colors could have been ordered. Not possible on an SS though.

A good question for Jim M or JohnZ.
2955  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Stripes - again on: June 20, 2007, 01:01:46 AM
I've seen several original paint early LOS 69 Z's. None were painted like this.

The dealer could install the spoiler as he saw fit. Move (or not) the emblem, braze or tape the holes, etc....

What color is the wiper linkage?

And you've had the car longer than you remember, 33 years not 20. Smiley
