Car brings $46100.00 and he doesn't let it go. What do you wanna bet he got scammed on the car and now he's trying to bail himself out.

Kurt.....Did you get the picture of the pad I sent you?
243  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Do these 302 DZ Block Numbers make Sense? on: March 01, 2007, 03:58:37 PM
I have the same type of spread with my dates. Block casting date is F 5 9 and assembly date is V1015DZ. It is a 3970010 block and the VIN on the block is 19N705488. I just have the engine so if someone has that car let me know. Anyway what are you thoughts on this date spread?

I'd looked into this in detail a little bit ago. The change happened in May, Jerry's car is one of the first. April cars are all top posts. I had it narrowed down to exactly when, but I need to look again.

Usages:
67, 68, and early 69 L6, 307, and Z28: The standard battery was the Delco Y55 (reverse polarity)

67, 68, and early 69 327, 350, 396, and 427: The standard battery was the R59 (61 A-hr).

Late 69 L6, 307, and Z28: The standard battery became the Delco Y77 with side posts.

Late 69 350, 396, and 427: The standard battery became the Delco R79 with side posts.

Kurt.....Looks like I need to go with the R59. If anyone out there has a NOS R59 let me know. I'll pay good money for one but not stupid money.

According to Jerry MacNeish, in his book, The Definitive 1969 Camaro Z/28-SS396 Fact Book, p.18, "In approximately March of 1969, a new side terminal battery was introduced replacing the Y-55 top post; however, original cars with top-post cables have been found which were built June-July of 1969."  He goes on to state that it was possible for the T-60 top post heavy duty battery was specified when car was ordered.

The 69 AIM, on page 161 under Battery & Cables, shows the top post battery and cables for the L-6, and on page 162, it shows the side post for V-8 applications. The release date of the drawing appears to be 11-5-68. 

I wondered about this same question.  I have a restored 69Z built 1st week of May.  I went with the R-79S side post, purchased from Restoration Battery out of Cincinnati (513-451-1083), based on Jerry's book, and to be a little different from many restored Camaros I see typically with tops post.  Not many go with the side post yet based on this discussion thread, there are original cars out there with the side post cables still in tact.

I would like to see pic of these battery cables.


I was checking out Jerry's book and noticed he says the Y55 is a "reverse-polarity." That is confusing because that term usually means it would be a positive ground system instead of negitive.

So, what battery do I need for my 69 SS350  Rally Sport 04C car? Is it a Y55, R59 or a T60, R89? I have seen all these used. My goal is to find the right NOS battery for the car for show purposes. The car is a survivor that scored 88% of it's total possible pointsl at the Camaro Nationals last year. I am trying to get this car to around 95%. That will be about the best it can do because of paint issues.
247  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Dynacorn title question on: January 28, 2007, 12:29:31 PM
There is a guy on Ebay selling the Dynacorn shells. He suggests that you can use a donor car for title. Isn't it illegal to do a VIN swap? Shouldn't these cars be titled as kit cars and have new titles and be titled as a 2007 or whatever year you built it in? My concern is fake cars. I know that the experts can tell the difference but what about the novice.
248  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Camaro battery on: January 19, 2007, 03:13:28 PM
When did they start using the side post battery for 69? What is correct for 04C car?
249  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Tire date decoding on: June 21, 2006, 01:48:59 PM
The reason I want originals is that the car is an original survivor car. They will be for show only. In the Vintage classes you don't get points for repro, only original or NOS parts. So can anyone answer my original question on date codes?
250  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Tire date decoding on: June 21, 2006, 08:38:17 AM
Is there a web site I can go to to decode tire dates. I need original tires for my 69SS 04C car and want to make sure I get the right ones. What would be correct Goodyear wide tread or Goodyear polyglas? Or both?
251  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Are there still rooms for the Camaro Nationals? on: June 09, 2006, 06:08:01 PM
Steve....how do you know what original paint cars are scheduled to be there? Is there a list out? I have a 69 SS350 RS that will be there. Also you may want to try Best Western. I booked a room there 2 weeks ago. 717-243-6200
252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 windshield needed on: May 22, 2006, 08:17:59 PM
Thanks for the info but I need original glass. Car is going to be shown in the Vintage class at the Camaro Nationals. Repro just won't work.
253  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 windshield needed on: May 22, 2006, 10:52:29 AM

254  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 air conditioning duct work on: May 19, 2006, 04:28:27 PM
Does anyone know what goes between the air distributor duct and the center outlet adapter duct. I have about an inch and a half gap between the two? If so where do I find it?
255  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 8 track on: April 22, 2006, 08:49:48 AM
Mark ....from what I understand then it would be correct to run a mono AM/FM with the U80 fader and only use the 2 speaker system. However since I have a console car I must use the console mounted 8 track and not the underdash model. If that's the case that sucks cause I really don't want it mounted on the console.
