1021  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 15, 2006, 05:38:09 AM
At Norwood, the cowl panel was not removed when the Z28 stripes were applied.  The strip paint over sprayed into the well area, over the phostphate black wiper linkage and sometimes over sprayed out from the front edges of the cowl panel.

Please refer to the statement by JohnZ above...  the wiper linkage was NOT painted. It was not even installed in the fisher plant.
Also the first gen assembly process is well documented by the CRG... here is the link http://www.camaros.org/assemblyprocess.shtml

Here is a pic of an unrestored original paint 04C Norwood built 69 Z.
I have MANY more of the cowl with and with out the cowl grille installed. Tell me what you want to see and I will post them.
The Vin# stamped in the top of the cowl under the grille was stamped after the white paint was applied... the stamping chipped the paint and then it appears as though a clear coat or a glue was brushed over the top where the paint was chipped to keep the chipped places from rusting.

Items like bumper brackets were manufactured by outside vendors and may have been painted a variety of shades of Black.
My bumper brackets are a warm black not a cool black like the inner fenders... the best thing to do is document and research as much as possible.

Yes Modified... but the brakes could have come like that from the factory

I was more referring to the Dynacorn bodies...

Hey with those we should be able to determine REBODIES very easily...

The last set of true NOS correct ones I saw went for $600.

The 68 Assembly manual shows the L30 327 275 hp 4 bbl carb engine (also same as L48 SS 350) with a PCV valve in the drivers valve cover running into the carb base plate but shows no elbow and tube from the pass side at all.
Every other engine shows the larger vent tube coming off of the pass side valve cover as well as the PCV line.

4 clips that were at 12, 3, 6, 9 o'clock.
They clipped over the lip of the rim.
Not sure about the valve stem hole...
The "NOS" ebay pieces are rarely the correct ones.

Looks like a pinion bumper.

What makes you think that the car originally had A/C?
If the car for sure had A/C then it could not have been a COPO.

If there is no engine in the car... click a few photo's of the firewall (Left side, Middle, right side), motor mount stands, clutch bell crank (if 4spd), and the trans crossmember.
 

Assuming that it was not originally an A/C Car...
Was the car an Auto or a 4spd?
If 4 spd check for the Muncie speedo cable location.

Also check for the cowl induction firewall piercing... I believe it is 7/8"  just above and to the left (if standing in the engine compartment looking towards the interior of the car) of the main harness bulkhead connection on the firewall.

If you are looking for originals try yenko.net, the site gets alot of traffic and there are alot of guys that have plenty of original parts... the parts are not going to be cheap... OR you can go the EBAY route...
1033  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Correct Gas Cap on: August 19, 2006, 01:34:45 PM
SS trumps the RS option so it should have an SS gas cap (if the car is originally an SS)
1034  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: your thoughts on date code 302 on: August 19, 2006, 02:01:29 AM
If the original trans is in the car snap a pic of the Vin stamping on it and if you can get a better one of the engine Vin that would be great as well.
The pair of them should display the same characteristics.
 
1035  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: your thoughts on date code 302 on: August 18, 2006, 08:09:09 PM
19N640143 can't quite make out the first number after the N but being an 05A it wouldn't be anything but a 6 and the 2nd 4 could be a different number...
 As to why someone would stamp it down by the oil filter is because that is where the May built cars would have been stamped and it would be easier to pass off as a matching number engine.
Deck a block that has no vin at the bell housing flange... then restamp the build date and suffix code, then stamp a Vin on the bell housing flange, it is easier for an unscrupulous seller to explain that the engine block was "decked along time ago during a rebuild" or "was decked inadvertently but the vin on 69's is down by the oil filter so it has matching numbers."

Does the car have a POP? If so it will have the engine build date on it.
