I agree the rivets add a question mark to the car, but it does not mean it isn't "the real deal".

And to even confuse things more, some interior colors (like red) had black std belts, but the dlx belts were colored to match the interior.

Why do you say that?
Do you personally know the car?

What's the axle code?
3051  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: original big block heads on: October 18, 2006, 10:36:59 PM
I thought this was discussed on one of the other forums too....

Have you confirmed the different valve sizes and spark plug seats?

John can confirm this: If the 291 had the same fit and function as the 840, the engine plant would use either.
cc volume probably isn't different enough to be an issue. Different valve size and spark plug design would not be the same funtion, but I'd like that confirmed on this engine first since I've heard different valve sizes and plug designs on the 291 head. 
3052  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Starter part number on: October 18, 2006, 10:03:48 PM
I don't think that's correct. Starter motors were superceded for service so those listings are often incorrect.

Try 1108338, 350 4bbl w/ manual.

Nothing on that car.
Tag is supposed to be attached with rivets, just not that type. Smiley

To answer your question, other than the fuel line, the base car is the same.
So it all depends on how good of job they did.
Did they: change axle, change front and rear springs, add disc brakes(assuming it was a drum brake car), etc? If they did it right, it can be hard to tell a clone from a real one.
They could have just installed a BB and drove on. That's just a hillbilly hack then.....

I'll just repost what I posted yesterday:
It should be in a couple of places on the site, but from http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#HowMany:
"....and build week dates did not always align exactly with calendar weeks."
It was for Fisher's internal useage, so it didn't have to be exact.

Specifically, sometimes the week would have started on Monday, sometimes on Tuesday, sometimes on the following Monday.

3057  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: NOR '68 TRim question ..." 7129" ? on: October 09, 2006, 01:15:21 AM
Can I get a picture of the tag (and the pad if possible)?

Yes, I have seen the engine VIN off by a digit on rare occasions.

Thanks!

Emailed.
3059  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 05, 2006, 12:51:55 AM
There was no HD cooling or fan option on a L78.
It should be a 5 blade fan and a 3 core rad.
