There are some other things to look for however in 1968 there are no defining codes that say yes this car is a Z28.
902  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need help with numbers and verification on: August 22, 2008, 08:12:08 AM

Yes being that it is a pre X code car it would have to be an SS to be a BB.


That could be a little misleading, if it were a post X code car it would have to be an SS to be a BB as well.
No, you are wrong there, it could be a COPO and be a BB and not be a SS. However COPO's were not produced until after X codes apeared on Cowl Tags.

Yikes... apart from being a horrible match for font and spacing... they didn't start letter coding until later.

Multileafs, 12 bolt, discs, check and see how many fuel lines there are...

Post some photos of the firewall and the rest of the car... afterwards I am sure we are going to request some more but if the car has not been been messed with too much there will be clues.
Does the car have the rear package tray metal and seat support intact?

It's hit or miss... the Jan 69 Hot Rod mag test car is a very early Z and it has the bracket.
909  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: restamp? on: August 18, 2008, 10:17:13 AM
OK.  I'm not sure what you are trying to say about the 0, 8 and 1's because I don't see it.  Also, since it should be stamped in one gang I should think that the numbers would all trail the same...so wouldn't your observation indicate a possible restamp?
Yes that is what I am saying...

I am not asking if it is a date during the production, I am asking if the date of 9C4 is a legitimate 480 date.

John,
It and the distributor are T'd to the baseplate under the front fuel bowl.  The T is not really a T it has 2 legs off of the same side and the hose that goes to the baseplate is hidden as it is running parallel to the hose going to the dashpot.

If you see in the picture, the 480 is not even in the car, there is an old cast iron distributor that I welded a stud to the shaft in order to spin oil pumps to prime the engine.

Nothing... It is what I have always used to take enamel paint off of Lacquer... the whole engine compartment of the 69 RS/Z survivor was painted with black bug bomb and I cleaned all of it off the inner fenders, radiator support, tie bars etc etc, it left all phospahting and orignal paint intact.

I am in agreement with you Mark... I find it VERY difficult to explain a change from Lacquer to Enamel. The show paint jobs of the time were 10-14 coats of Lacquer, color sanded and buffed, they shined like nothing else.

Wow... 67's are much lighter... almost looks like Pecan.
913  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 heater hose bracket on: August 18, 2008, 09:05:15 AM
Not all of them have it... The Early car I am doing now has never had the threads cut in the alt bracket for the clip either...
Jerry's book shows some with and some without...
914  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Help! Painting Monday!!!....I can't find the correct info to do this right...... on: August 18, 2008, 09:02:38 AM
There is a very close match to the suede paint available in a spray can... it is a textured flat finish Krylon available at Lowes.
They have two different black textured paints....The one you want is the one with "less texture" on the cap.
