That was the one detail that I noticed too. The rest I agree with. Wink

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.

QW is a posi code though. So it would appear that they missed stamping it.

GIBSTER,
Can you post pics of the VIN's in those locations?
3170  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
3171  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.
3172  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.....
3173  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

Mike,
That isn't how it's supposed to be. How many years has GM been building cars???
Buy the first Honda off the line, it won't have issues. Quality is often higher then the prior model. Not saying which is the better car, but who has their act together.
3175  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: REAR END DATE on: December 16, 2005, 12:59:41 AM
I'm not following your reasoning Wayne.
Real paperwork is the best documentation. Just gotta be able to ID the real stuff.
3176  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: VINYL TOP MOLDINGS?? on: December 12, 2005, 01:01:25 AM
I believe I (or William) posted that.
The trim has different part #'s. That's the only known difference.
Only black in the recess.
3177  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN number matching trim tag on: December 08, 2005, 03:52:45 PM
Seems like I recal a previous post on the old forum which discussed this in some detail. I I recall, the post stated that if a logistical or actual production problem occurred with the body after Fisher began building it, depending on how sever the issue was, the body would remain on the Fisher side of the fence until the problem was fixed - resulting in a more than standard variance between body build and final assembly build dates.
That very rarely happened. Only if there was an issue that had to be reworked and most were fixed on the same shift.
3178  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Why are 69s worth more than 67s on: December 07, 2005, 11:41:59 PM
What about production numbers though, there were a lot more 69s made than 67s, and 67s can't be changed to Zs or any thing like that, whereas on 69s, the cowl tag isn't very specific and lets you get away with more. Just a thought
220,906 for 67 vs 243,085 for 69. So not much difference.
Both could have cowl tag modifications to 'change' the car. So that's not it.

Just a more popular body style.
3179  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Z28 Database on: December 05, 2005, 04:57:35 PM
The database (which includes all 67-9 models, not just Z's) is not public.
Just post the VIN here or send it via email.
Thanks!

Here's what I reponded to your post on camaros.net:

I'm confused. The Muncie 3 speed was cast iron case. What's the trans code stamped on the case?

No discs and no return line means it wasn't an SS.

It's a late 69 car.
