2986  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 69 LM1 article on: May 27, 2006, 11:23:50 AM
Here is a new article, just published.

It hasn't been added to the Reports index page, yet. Smiley

It's not something that had even come across our radar until now.
So there no group research to back it up, just individual recollections.

But Ed's P&A34 is pretty convincing since it shows the early 69 model year usage. I'll check my books when they get unpacked.....

Interesting. I had heard that no Camaros were export downunder, but this sure disproves that!

I'd be interested in some more data from your car whenever you get a chance. Email is fine.

Never seen one of those tags before...

Reviewing all the data, looks like the changeover can be pinned down to the 02A week at NOR. Not enough LA data to say for sure when they started, could have been late 01D. At least by the end of the 02A week, both plants were using the one-piece units.

Anyone else with an 01D or 02A LA car? Or 02A NOR car?

Thanks for discussing this Rich!

I had an Oct 68 Camaro, plastic cap. I've never seen any metal caps on an 69. Ever. That's way too many cars to be due to replacement. Smiley
Vettes have a different accessory design, the 69 metal cap may have been just that application.....
2991  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN info for "67 RS/SS on: May 17, 2006, 12:07:22 AM
Shifts on the column-three speed.

I think y'all misread this. He's talking a column shift automatic. Note the engine and trans codes....
2992  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Caps for 69 (68?) RS windshield washer bracket on: May 16, 2006, 11:53:54 PM
Yeah, real measurements with calipers!

Those pics you posted are fine.
Are there any markings on the top of the caps? The ones I saw had a single digit, IIRC.
2993  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 16, 2006, 11:46:24 PM
I have seen a few unpainted caps. Not common (IMO) and they stand out.

Every 69 cap I've seen has been plastic (also via junkyarding). Smiley There also different lengths of the stick on the cap. Didn't realize that til recently....
2994  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: paint code on: May 16, 2006, 11:32:02 PM
Unless it's an SS or Z, nothing on the tag indicates that it came with a stripe.
2995  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Calling on you Camaro Experts. Nobody has been able to figure this out yet! on: May 16, 2006, 11:29:44 PM
Here's even more detailed info (from the Decoding FAQ):

LOS - Fisher Body body scheduling code

    The LOS (Los Angeles/Van Nuys) body scheduling code is a letter followed by one to three digits, e.g., F103. Based on data analysis only (there is no GM documentation yet available that describes this code) - but with consistent application to thousands of datapoints - CRG believes the code was used by LOS Fisher Body (and other plants that built multiple carlines) to aid in scheduling the body build order.

    The letter indicates the approximate production day of the month for the start of the assembly of each vehicle body. It began with letter "A" on the first day of the month of the Fisher production calendar, incremented at the start of each additional production day to the next alphabetic letter, and was reset to letter "A" at the start of the next production month. (Note that the Fisher production calendar is known to differ slightly from the calendar month, and we also do not yet know exactly how the Fisher production calendar related to the Chevrolet monthly production reporting calendar.)

    The one-to-three digit sequence number that follows the letter was reset to 1 at the start of each production day and was incremented serially with each body built by the factory as the day progressed. Data analysis indicates that the sequence number at the LOS plant was assigned regardless of model or body type. By this we mean that Camaros and full-size passenger cars both incremented the same sequence counter. The unit counter was reset to 1 the next day as the day-of-the-month code letter incremented to the next letter. In the example, F103 would indicate the sixth day of production for a given month and the 103rd body started on that sixth day of production.
2996  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 RS/SS on: May 10, 2006, 12:51:57 AM
No way. All 67-69 350 Camaros had a Rochester 4 barrel.

All 67-69 **SS** 350 Camaros were 4 bbl. The 69 L65 350 (non-SS) was a 2 bbl.
2997  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rally Sport Vacuum problems. HELP! on: May 10, 2006, 12:40:46 AM
I looked at the Detroit Speed RS setup. Looked nice for a restomod car.

Wonder what motors the ebay systems uses?
2998  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Primer recomendations.... on: May 10, 2006, 12:26:10 AM
I'm not a paint guy, but you want a self etching primer.
2999  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Impossible to document? on: May 08, 2006, 08:30:15 PM
That is correct. So this car could not have been sold originally in Canada.

All covers should be screwed on. I have seen 2 different kinds of screws used.

Ed, I recognize that reg pic. Smiley
Here's another shot of the 05E date. Note the pencil marks on the side.
