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.

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.

There was no HD cooling or fan option on a L78.
It should be a 5 blade fan and a 3 core rad.

Go with the closer one. Remember that was the build date of the body, car was completed several days later.

3100  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring clean original trunk, touch up or strip it??? on: September 29, 2006, 12:19:24 AM
I wouldn't do the trunk. From what I've seen, that car is too clean. Everyone has a restored car. You can have real nice looking, mostly original car. Just shoot the outside and clean up what needs cleaned.

And you probably can't get splatter paint to ever look that nice. The repro stuff doesn't look the same...
3101  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Best way to preserve the build sheet? on: September 29, 2006, 12:06:09 AM
Laminating it doesn't meet archival standards. I'd second the slip cover suggestion. Or ask a musuem how they'd store it.....

I'd be interested in a scan or picture of your broadcast sheet. Don't see many for 68's....

Thanks!
3102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: X Codes on: September 26, 2006, 12:08:07 AM
Sounds like one fuel line.
What's the VIN and axle code? http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#RearAxleNumbers
3103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 24, 2006, 10:21:18 PM
John, my mistake, I thought we had discussed your cowl plenum being blacked out.

Dave69x33,
RamAirDave's pics are of a black striped car, so the plenum is painted black as expected.

I'd say John's article is accurate, the assembly process as described is how they made the cars. Original cars confirm this.

Pacers would not have had much an impact on processing, since they were spread out over 2-3 months.

Yes, that pacer is very original. It was here in MI in the original family. Looks like it's been sold or someone (Jim?) moved.

3104  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Seat belt question for KurtS on: September 22, 2006, 01:28:11 AM
Nope. The tags didn't indicate color.
3105  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 20, 2006, 11:23:45 PM
To summarize:
The cowl plenum should be body color (or stripe color on Z's and pacers). I've seen only 1 or 2 cars that were blacked out, John's being the only one that comes to mind.
