46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: The straight skinny on post '65, pre-mid '70, Hurst shifter plating on: January 21, 2015, 03:30:49 PM
You are making statements regarding specs in a 1962 advertisements for Hurst Shifters, yet asking questions about 65-69 Hurst supplied OEM shifters.
Apples to Oranges
GM's specs may or may not have been the exact specs for what Hurst supplied to the aftermarket.
Example elimination of the positive stops in the comp plus, the bayonette handle and rubber insulator were not used, nor were the rubber bushings in the shifter gates for the rods, these were done to accommodate the OEM's, not for performance.

That block might  have been for one of the last 4P l78 cars before they became 4k.


So someone could think they have a SS350...
Did anyone check that VIN 208512 against the Yenko list?
48  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: MQ Block on: January 20, 2015, 11:38:03 AM
Wasn't the block cast May of 1966?
If these numbers are right the engine's assembly would be 10-1/2 months after being cast, correct?

The car in an early Yenko advertisement (the Span advertisement) matches this car to a T except the car in the ad had sidepipes. Same 427 emblem placement, car in ad has hubcaps and std SS hood like the car pictured, any idea if they are one in the same?  White RS/SS with bumblebee, SS hood.

The picture shown is horrible for determining much of anything.
Are you absolutely sure it is an E?
Do you see any visible signs of what may be a repair of the block?
I can come up with a couple of reasons a block would sit for 11 months before being built.
1. A repair needed to be performed or
2. It was uncycled inventory (by uncycled I mean a FIFO inventory system was not being employed.)

That being said lets talk about the block, ... the deck looks to have a decent amount of rust pitting, make sure the pitting is consistent across the stamping, in other words makes sure there are pits in the stamp character impressions and they match the rest of the pitting.  

As far as an assembly date being too early, I do not believe there are too many norms associated with 67 L78 production, there were too few built in the 4 months they were produced in order to draw many meaningful conclusions.

Bergy worked at Tonowanda he or JohnZ may be able to elaborate on the inventory procedures and whether it is possible and if so, the probability of it happening.

It is shown on the pad and the oil filter boss...
The 12C X66 Norwood I have been working on has it's VIN by the Oil Filter, was Norwood alternating the locations for the VIN by mid January?  

Shouldn't the Transmission have a A B C on it, the assembly date is Oct 22, I thought the cut off was before Oct 20th.
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: CLEAR COATING ALUMINUM GRILL TRIM ??? on: January 16, 2015, 02:33:32 PM
BTW I would probably tape over the polished part shoot the black then tape the black up and shoot the clear. Reason being you can slightly scuff the aluminum then wipe with isopropyl alcohol in order to assist with the adhesion of the black paint, whereas you will have a polished surface on the exposed AL trim, which would be more likely to allow the paint to release.  Allowing the black to dry for a couple of days  or baking it and using a tape that is for applying over delicate surfaces to mask the black would serve to limit potential problems.

Have it clear anodized the cost is not as much as you would probably expect.

Jon,
the Nov-dec 2014 issue of Vintage Motorpsorts has an article by Brock Yates stating that he does in fact have Alzheimer's and he writes of his frustrations with the disease and etc. VM is really a great magazine for the sport of Vintage racing and I encourage everyone interested to pick up a copy.

Are you going to have it at the Monterey Historics this year? I am planning on attending this year.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Round 2: Going to see a '68 Z/28 - Need some help w/pics on: January 01, 2015, 05:45:06 PM
I like the 4.56's and teal blue... uncommon options pointing to an original owner with a reason/purpose.
I bet the original owner has stories... 
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: COPO? on: January 01, 2015, 05:33:08 PM
It's getting close to a finished value if restoration costs are taken into account.
Unless specifically looking for this combo... a White w/ Black int & column shift auto has limited appeal even if it is a born with drivetrain COPO.
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Camaro Z/28 Sequoia Green on: December 29, 2014, 05:34:18 PM
I would much have preferred it to be the original condition vs the restored condition. It had all kind of appeal before, now it is just another restored 68 Z28, not that there is anything wrong iwth restored cars. That car being stored in TX had mucho potential as an unrestored car, all the crustiness under the hood would be gone in little to no time safest rust remover and cosmoline. The oxidized paint could be polished but none of the metallics back then were very glossy.
60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim tag and engine stamp opinion on: December 28, 2014, 08:12:36 PM
I know of another 69 Z which has a DZ with the flint machining characteristics and also has a T0225DZ stamping... The original POP has T0225DZ on it too, we had believed someone re-stamped the block to match the POP.
