Also jimmy, the backing plate should be square. Yours is on a diagonal. It will actually line up with the bars of the grille. It is just off a smidge. When you move it, you will step back and say "that's it!"

The 'location' of the stamps wrt the head are a bit different than I'm used to seeing..  Perhaps JohnZ, William, or Kurt can comment on the gang stamp and if they can get this close to the head with the head installed??   Usually the stamps are more near the front edge of the deck than these...

Getting the casting dates, and all other info would be helpful in making an originality determination...
I thought the same thing Gary.

Use something to neutralize the rust and just spray it with chrome spray paint to protect it.

My car has power steering as well. I took it out when I bought the car in 1978. I was 22 at the time. Sometime after I turned 50, I was cleaning out my mothers house and found a very heavy box upstairs in the garage. In the box was my complete power steering setup. Once you turn 50, power steering looks a lot better! I will put together the story of my original block and start a new thread. It's a long read!

Just crawled under my car, and the trans stamp matches the stamp on this car. The 6 in my partial is the same as the three 6's in this cars partial. The original block from my car is at my engine builder( another long story) so I can't compare the partial by my oil filter. The partial on my trans is in the same spot on the trans as this car and was assembled the same day. I wish mine was an m-22 like this one! I would have to say the trans stamp is legit.

Just read the report, and they do show the stampings, which look good to me(no expert of course) but I would invite the experts to examine the trim tag rivets. Maybe it's just the picture but they don't look right.

Very nice car. It is less than 800 cars before mine was built. All the date codes line up with mine. My transmission was built the same day as this one. Overall, a really nice car. It doesn't show any block, trans or rear end stampings, but I am sure it is in Jerry's report. I really like it.

AMEN!

But I don't need any more credit cards...

The Z/28 emblem would override the R/S emblem. Chevy wouldn't put two emblems on the car. What would they do on the rear body panel?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 100K 69 Z/28 code 52 on: June 09, 2014, 12:41:04 PM
Nicely presented, but no stampings shown, I don't like the tag, the rear with a December assembly date? I think mine is a week before production. You would think for 100k, you would get the right shift handle, not one out of a peterbilt! A lot of correcting to do with a hefty price tag!
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 03, 2014, 11:55:10 PM
 I got mine today and the dealer was Spielman Motor Sales in Brooklyn, NY. I looked up the name in Google and got back news paper articles with that car dealers name going back to 1929 and many in the 1940's. Last records I can find for them are dated 1975 for pension trustee counts. Looking at Google maps I see there is a Key Foods shopping plaza on the property  Cry
 Oh well.....at least I now know who it was that sold the car. Looking at Google maps, you can 'drive' around the roads and see the other properties. I told my wife at least I can see the original buildings that are still standing there and the roads my car once drove down. That in itself was a strange feeling.

where were they located mike? My mom grew up in bushwick and there was a Chevy dealership across the street on bushwick ave. they were out of business by the time the riots hit in 77.

Thanks Kurt. This Daytona yellow Z was built the same day as my burnished brown one. Amazing how sloppy the factory was. Twenty years ago, If you paid someone 50k to restore your car, and got it back looking like that you would be pissed! Now, not so much!!
