3136  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 camaro 350 SS authenticity on: November 22, 2005, 01:40:41 AM
Car was built in July of 68. VIN confirms it.
I personally wouldn't bother with the engine pad pic (no disrespect to Pat Smiley ).
I would find the axle code, since that will confirm if it is original to the car and hence what the car was.
3137  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 12 bolt decoding - mistamp? on: November 21, 2005, 12:14:53 AM
The axle is not original to the car. Looks like it is out of a 71 Nova.
I assume the casting # is actually 3969341, I don't know of a 3969340.
BL W1302 is a 71 format. I didn't realize they made a 12 bolt this year. Camaros were all 10 bolts, Novas could have a 12 bolt.
BL - 3.07  
W - Warren, MI plant
130 - 130th day of year
2 - 2nd shift

Yes for 67 cars. No for 68 & 69.

I agree with John, the bottom of the hood has been repainted.

...that certain colors did not get the black-out treatment due to an enamel/lacquer mismatch
There was no issue with the types of paints. They only used lacquer. And the blackout of the firewall did not vary by model, every car should have gotten it, regardless of color. The blackout was to make the firewall uniform.
Can you post pics showing this?

Not uncommon to see some body color on the tag and the top of the firewall. The firewall blackout didn't always cover the top edge. I'm interested in seeing any pics of a car having color on the main part of the firewall.

I know of one car that did have green on the firewall. A silver 69. I need to ask for some more details on that car.

Sorry, nothing on that car.
3141  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: I'm new and need help decoding my 69 camaro, please help! on: November 15, 2005, 10:22:58 PM
I'll try to be clearer.
The VIN and tag tells nothing more than the info posted by Daniel. No other engine info and no trans or any other info.

Correct on the style trim.
2 fuel lines means it was a L35 or L34 (325 or 350hp) 396.
3142  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: I'm new and need help decoding my 69 camaro, please help! on: November 15, 2005, 05:17:58 PM
It would have the hockey stick stripes.
The decode above show all the options that the tag shows.
1 or 2 fuel lines?
3143  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Another 1968 Z28 question - Cowl Hoods? on: November 15, 2005, 01:42:25 AM
No. Never from the factory.

Cowl plenum was available in 67-8. Hood didn't change, "it was an air cleaner assembly that had an air duct bolted up to the fire wall".
3144  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 302 Block ? on: November 13, 2005, 10:29:55 PM
Unbolt the alternator (unbolting the bracket can be easier) and snap a pic of the #'s. That will tell us a lot more.
Also, the casting # on the rear of the block would be helpful.
3145  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Dash code on: November 11, 2005, 03:16:23 PM
Default stripe for your car would have been none.
From the info you've posted, it could be that someone ordered a convertible and then added the blue nose stripe, ala the pacecars. Your car was built after the pacers were available and maybe someone still wanted one.....

Can you post a picture of the cowl tag or send it to me? Also, what's the VIN?
3146  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 12 bolt decoding - mistamp? on: November 11, 2005, 02:56:58 PM
I split this into a new topic.
I've never seen a stamp like that. Can you get a picture of the code? That similar to a 71 stamping format, but the 12 bolt was gone by then.
What is the casting # and date from the center section? (See Decoding on this site for the locations.
Also, can you post the cowl tag and VIN for the car?
3147  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 L78 radiator core on: November 10, 2005, 05:27:08 PM
The axle ratio did not have any affect on the radiator from the factory.
I'd say that if everything is in good condition, it shouldn't be an issue. And just how many miles would you drive with that ratio anyway. Smiley
3148  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN # and Trim Tag Build Date on: November 10, 2005, 05:01:59 PM
I'd have to see all the #'s, but from that limited info, it looks like something's not right.
3149  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN # and Trim Tag Build Date on: November 10, 2005, 02:20:40 AM
What's the cowl tag say?

Regular Production Option (RPO) V01 was the heavy-duty radiator option and was available with all engines except the Z28 or big block engines.

So, no.
You can install a 4 core, but why? A 3 core will work fine. You may have fan clutch length issues with a 4 core.
