It is very late for that car. He originally posted on camaros.net.
My response was:
That axle date is *really* close. So close that I'd say it's possible that it's original. If so, it's the only exception I've seen in 69.
GM docs do indicate that all 69 L48 autos were to get 10 bolts, but that's not what happened.

http://www.camaros.org/options.shtml#RPOSpreadsheet has all that info in it. Smiley

The complete front doghouse was painted by Chevy (not Fisher) and had to meet up with the body. That panel was where they chose to write codes, for whatever reason.

I doubt it is for Manual trans. That wouldn't affect sheetmetal. Could be a code for something, like which emblem to use or ??.

Wayne,
I realize you're new to posting on this forum, but this type of post is not acceptable or called for.
Specifically the political comments and the negativity.

Thanks!

That site looks like a shameless knockoff of the Team Camaro forums.
Almost exactly the same names for the forums, including the descriptions. Unless permission has been granted by the camaros.net people, could be some copyright issues involve. It does not look like it's adding to the Camaro world, IMO.
3097  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Z28 Database on: December 31, 2005, 05:14:09 PM
To clarify, the db has been laboriously created over the years from various sources. These include observed cars (car shows, ebay, etc), posted or submitted data, and documentation. Most of the data consists of the #'s off of the cars; as you'd expect, most cars don't have documentation.

Even at over 10,000 cars in the db, we still have only 1.5% of the first gen Camaros.

That was the one detail that I noticed too. The rest I agree with. Wink
3099  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: drive train on: December 28, 2005, 11:05:39 PM
Thanks!
I still don't understand the 10 bolt in it. Unusual since all other L48/M38 cars have a 12 bolt.
Or it got swapped and the date happened to be perfect for the car, which I kinda doubt.
3100  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear axel posi designation on: December 28, 2005, 11:02:39 PM
QW is a posi code though. So it would appear that they missed stamping it.
3101  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black Firewall Paint on: December 21, 2005, 04:15:34 PM
GIBSTER,
Can you post pics of the VIN's in those locations?
3102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Z28 Database on: December 20, 2005, 12:52:26 AM
No, 70 VIN's away is the closest.  Tongue
3103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 L78 camaro convertable on: December 19, 2005, 01:09:12 AM
11??
I personally know of more cars that that!
200-400 is a reasonable guess. Out of 4889 L78's in 69.
3104  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: seat belt color on: December 16, 2005, 04:54:28 PM
That's a related issue.
As John states, belt type was not related to interior type.
Pat's question is about color. And deluxe belts often became colored, whereas standards were black. Not true for all interior colors, but true for red and 69 greens.

That color chart is in my seatbelt article, which has progressed. Now I need to HTML it.....
3105  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: seat belt color on: December 16, 2005, 01:19:20 AM
Nope. They are correct.
For whatever reason, the standards were black in a red interior, but deluxe belts would be red. Go figure.....

What are the dates on the belts and how many belts are in the rear? Wink
