Thanks!

Here's a quickie list of 68 shock broadcast codes:
Fronts: TG - L6 & LF7,   PS - L35,   PW - L30/M20 & L35
Rears: TM - L6 & LF7,   TN - L35,   UM - LF7w/F41,   UN - L30/M20, L48, L35, L78, Z28

That list of the front codes is missing several models of cars. Sad

What's the date code under the DS-501 transistor?

Not sure on 68 but in 67 LOS didn't use hidden VIN's. I beleive that 68 didn't either.

Buddy
That would be incorrect. I have pics of partial VINs from both 67 & 68 LOS cars.

Available on any car.
Post your VIN, cowl tag, and axle code and we might be able to tell what it is.

What's the part # on the YQ tag?
Thanks!
3141  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LOS camaros on: November 23, 2005, 12:10:46 AM
It's just a sequence #. Says it's #104 for the day. Don't think that's info the General should have saved.
3142  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 camaro 350 SS authenticity on: November 23, 2005, 12:08:34 AM
If it's a Chevy axle, the stamp will be were the sketch under 'Decoding' show it. 10 bolt or 12 bolt. It'll be there, just have to scrape. And the sketch is pretty accurate.

Re-read all those caveats about those production totals. Some months are really off, the records are not accurate.
3143  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: two tone paint on: November 23, 2005, 12:01:23 AM
5909 Camaros got it in 69.
It's very similar trim as vinyl top trim. They are different part #'s; difference is believed to be the 2 tone is not painted black in the 'valley' of the trim.
The white topped cars (like yours) are more popular than the colored roofs, by about a 4:1 ratio.
3144  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Spoilers and head rest on: November 22, 2005, 01:51:29 AM
I don't often get to clarify a JohnZ post. Smiley

Headrests on early 69 cars were optional (RPO A82), but the factory included them on all cars unless they were deleted on the order via RPO AR1.
There were some people who didn't want this mandatory option and the dealership was authorized to remove the headrests, install a plug, and credit them the $16.90.
I won't even get into the screwy price change that happen on 1/1/69.....
3145  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.
3146  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
3147  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LOS camaros on: November 20, 2005, 09:47:42 PM
Yes for 67 cars. No for 68 & 69.
3148  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black Firewall Paint on: November 16, 2005, 09:55:47 PM
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.
3150  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.
