I know I have seen it before, but that is a neat detail and I would love to see some original cars with the stripe.

going through a list of Window stickers in Jerry's book I found the following (probably a few more out there) I have listed what model they came in although there may be overlap none of these showed it.
Would the ECL codes indicate the different transmissions? 
3 ECL codes for the M20.
One used with the Z28 3.73 to 4.10
One used with a L35 3.07
One used with a L48 3.31

there were 2 for the M21
one with the Z28 3.73 -4.10
one with a L78 F70 14's 3.55

2 for the M22
One used with a L72 F70 14's and 4.10
One used with a Z28 and 3.73's

Personally I love stripeless Z's I think they are the ultimate sleeper, with the flat hood & even moreso if D80 is omitted...
If they weren't behind you with an early 68 you'd have 302 emblems... put a 4.56 M20 in Ashgold sans stripes and it would be brutal at a stoplight, they'd never see it coming.

3/8 was the number that always stuck in my head...

My girlfriend pointed out that she asked 3 questions... She was wondering...
Confirmed with an English expert. That was not phrased as a question and is not a question. It is a 'musing'. Could be amusing too. 


LOL I am going to use that next time she and I have a disagreement...
66  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stripe delete on: June 06, 2014, 05:29:52 PM
No - on the trim tag of my Norwood built Z. (GG) Original owner verified  he ordered the car stripe delete , spoke with the man about 20 years ago who shot the stripes in 69-70. The 2nd owner had it done when he ordered the cowl hood through Milad Chevrolet.

Ok I hadn't realized your car was stripe delete, that throws a monkey wrench in assumptions.

Kurt answered the factual parts, left the wondering up to the owner.

BTW A good friend had a 67 BB conv Bolero Red white top bumblebee and pins with the black tail pan, it looked great!

IMHO dual exh out the back chrome tips etc are what ruin the lines of the 67-68's, it ruins the stock appearance and the way the quarters taper to the tail. .
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Crayon behind rear seat X? Opinions please on: June 05, 2014, 02:52:38 PM
There are numerous 4 leafed original SS's.
I take it the rear tail pan was originally black?
IF it wasn't I could see the number being read as a 3, the 2 indicated BB with style trim, so black tail pan and black rockers, although 51 wasn't supposed to have the rockers blacked out, many Dusk blue cars did.

Correct me if I am wrong but it appears Mark is stating that that information applied to TT would be furnished differently based on the plant...

Example... LA produced cars with no stripe would have a - - since they did in fact paint the front ends, BUT Norwood would have standard information? 

It makes more sense that all information would be sent to the initial point of assembly, it seems it would be easier to assign all information the same regardless of whether it applied or not, it would eliminate the possibility of not enough information at the assembly plants.
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 05, 2014, 01:59:38 PM
The factory used something with a fairly large nozzle as what was applied was quite viscous allowing a heavy build without too much sagging.
The inside of the quarters in the trunk have approx 3/16-1/4" build which can not be achieved using a spray can or even a schultz gun.

I bought a textured ceiling gun, with 3 different sized nozzles, to try to get a suitable build, haven't tried it yet, may be nothing but a mess.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 05, 2014, 01:18:51 PM
I've got 5-5 gallon buckets full of original nuts bolts and clips etc at my dads house.... I know what I'm gonna be doing!
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early 1968 Z/28 original tires? on: June 03, 2014, 10:31:24 AM
It was an E70x15 according to the air pressure sticker, being available only on the Z28 I would call it special.

By the way the early 69 Z's list the on their Window Sticker a no cost 15" tire option.
PU6 AD - E70 x 15 Tiires
This was dropped sometime between N522xxx and N528xxx based on the Window Stickers in JM's book.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Wanting to buy new leaf springs. on: June 03, 2014, 09:43:12 AM
IF yours are not pitted or broken then you can have them re-arched for $100-150.
A customer of mine has had 2 sets re-arched one for a Z and one for a L65 4 spd conv both sets sit perfectly.

Here is a side by side of comparison of original Z28 springs vs Bob Harris's (Camaro Specialties) springs, they are extremely close,
The leaf ends are not quite as thin on the ends, the rectangle pockets are not quite as deep and the spring clamps are not the same gauge (thinner) - these are worlds above anything else available the other reproductions are not ANYWHERE CLOSE!










74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early 1968 Z/28 original tires? on: June 03, 2014, 01:29:44 AM
What was the P28 option, priced at $90 for 1968 models,... "Wheels, 15" and special tire (added 03JAN68 to AIM)"

There is a guy on the Yenko site with a 68 L78 4.56 or 4.88 car that has the original window sticker and 15" tire option, pretty sure it has DF's & wide tread GT's, someone else remembers a car (was def not a Z as it either had air or was a real auto car) with the 15" tire pressure sticker but had discounted it as being wrong earlier in their life.    
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BB Intake manifold studs on: June 02, 2014, 09:53:57 PM
Is your ac brace through bolted, meaning the bolts that go through the braces also retain the intake?
Or are there studs and the ac bracket is on the studs?
That may be the answer I need, as BB camaro engines were not coded differently if they were to be in a car equipped with A/C.
