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....

Unless it's an SS or Z, nothing on the tag indicates that it came with a stripe.

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.

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.

I looked at the Detroit Speed RS setup. Looked nice for a restomod car.

Wonder what motors the ebay systems uses?

I'm not a paint guy, but you want a self etching primer.
3082  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Impossible to document? on: May 08, 2006, 08:30:15 PM
Randy,
That is correct. So this car could not have been sold originally in Canada.
3083  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: ac delco voltage regulator part number for 68 L34? on: May 01, 2006, 04:00:38 AM
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.
3084  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 Cowl Tag Date and Engine Build Date on: April 25, 2006, 08:55:59 PM
Yes, I did. And it's always been our policy not to disclose details on why a tag looks like a repro tag. It's not because it's too clean.

Out of 11,000+ cars in the database, not one has a build date that's off by a month.
3085  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '67/'68 clutch FAN, ...4 rivets ....not 5? on: April 24, 2006, 09:26:50 PM
There is one fan used in 67, 912239, that did use five rivets. Never seen it on a 68.

Need to finish the update to that cooling report...
3086  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: SS Hupcaps on: April 24, 2006, 09:24:12 PM
Have to say that is a P&A34 date that I haven't seen before. Would be a good one for 68 guys....
3087  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: L78 engine code help on: April 24, 2006, 02:03:43 AM
That might be in Jerry's book, but Camaro continued using the 2 digit code from what I've seen. I've only heard of one or two exceptions and have not seen pics of those pads.....
3088  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 Cowl Tag Date and Engine Build Date on: April 24, 2006, 01:57:14 AM
There are anomalies, but this tag does not appear to be one. That's after comparing it to literally thousands of other tags. Reproduction tags have been around for decades. Maybe the tag was missing, who knows.

"The pacecar contact suspects it is an 05A that has been mis-stamped."
And did they state whether or not they thought the tag was original? I had another pacecar member state to me that they did not think it was original.
3089  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 Cowl Tag Date and Engine Build Date on: April 18, 2006, 01:50:57 PM
Not sure what the fear is in having the numbers out there. Most ebay ads have the numbers listed, or go to a car show....

To answer the question, I was able to dig the pics out of my internet temp directory. After comparing the tag pic to the many others I have, my opinion is that it is not original. Sad
Which explains why the #'s don't line up, but not how the tag got there.

Axle is from an early 70's Nova.
