Another thing my SF agent pointed out is that there would be no reason to put a value on the policy if it weren't agreed. They would just pay book like a regular policy. You can only put a value on collector cars. I insured a 94 ZR1 with them and put an agreed value on it. It came back and they said the car was not old enough plus the fact they were treating it like a regullar Corvette. My agent contacted the underwriter and told them it was a limited run car then they OK'd it once they realized what it was. This whole thing with agreed not being offered by regular insurance companies was started by the specialty companies cause they have a hard time competeing with the big guys.

I just spoke with my State Farm agent. He told me that the only type they write is "agreed" on collector cars. I asked him if my car were totaled or stolen what would I get. He said I would get the amount I had it insured for. The only time they pay less is if it can be repaired. He even spoke to the underwriters on this issue to confirm. He said that is why they take pictures of the car to verify the condition.

I owned an 11D car SS350 non x code. It had an X5 behind the rear seat. I tried to post a pic but can't get it to show up.

Click......I will question my agent on all this, however he is a car collector himself so I'm thinking he knows what's going on. I'll keep you posted as to what I find out.

I have State Farm and they do have agreed value. I have my 69 SS RS insured for $55K with them. It cost $19.00 a month with $250 deductable collision and $100 deductable on comp. and all the high limits on liability 100/300K. Same insurance on my 94 ZR1 with $35K and it is $17.00 a month. It shows right on my policy the insured value of the car. All I had to do was take pictures of the cars and give to agent. No appraisal at all.

Got it.....my car has custom interior so that is why I got the glove box light only.

My car has a glove compartment light but no other light package. Was it possible to get just that?

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?
251  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?
252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro battery on: January 29, 2007, 10:43:51 AM
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.
255  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.
