Unfortunately not too much can be told from a cowl tag on a Van Nuys car.
The vin indicates a V8... the 2 gas lines indicate a non solid lifter engine... look and find the parts numbers on the frame stands for the engine... also look at the trans cross member and see what the cut out looks like... (where the trans mount bolts go through) is it oval? rectangle with a corner cut off? Get the info and reveal what you find.

A piece of 5/8" steel pallet strapping works great... should be able to find some at any manufacturing plant, maybe at a grocery store...

Use a breaker bar and make sure the trans is in nuetral.

Thanks jerry! It is a topic on a site I belong to.I wasnt sure if the 67 had it. Jerry I have 1 more paint question, the Z/28 stripes on the cowl below the windshield,did GM spray the stripes on the cowl vent panel with it on the car and did the stripe color go beneath the cowl in the wiper galley (overspray) thru the vents? If I paint the stripes on mine (black) should the overspry go under the cowl vent ?  Huh

Norwood sprayed them in place.  LA painted the cowls first and then installed the cowl and painted it.  Have photos in my book to show this. 

Could you elaborate?
I thought the Norwod cars had the cowl grilles sprayed while hanging in the window opening...
The Black 69 RS/Z with original paint definatley did not have the cowl grille on the car when it was painted... or striped.
you can see where the stripe paint overspray came though from the back where the wiper nozel cut out is located.

The best way to get the right finish is to find an aluminum foundry and ask if they will drop the parts into their vibratory media hopper (which they use to remove the sand from raw Aluminum castings) The finish is the same as the factory as that is how they got the finish in the parts to begin with.
952  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Rebody Z on Ebay on: June 27, 2008, 01:30:37 AM
Here is what appears to be a 69 Z cowl top spliced onto another bodyshell...
Ad says the cowl tag reads as follows.
Body # 278190
Trim 715                     
50-50 paint
The lack of Muncie Firewall piercing and the seam sealer at the cowl well was the first clue...

Clean them in a vibratory bin or glass bead then re phoshate them with the good stuff from Palmetto Enterprises...

It may take some dialing in the carb (acc pump, PV's, jets, etc), timing, and experimentation but take into consideration that Jerry McNeish's Old Reliable has been through a NHRA tear down. It's stock and runs 10's. So I am sure you could get 427 into the 11's.
955  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 leaf spring finish/Plastic pads on: June 06, 2008, 08:25:40 PM
I have seen the liners that went the entire length of the leaf and I have seen them that were only on the ends where the leaf tips were... I would venture to guess that both types were used...

Not really, 68's are the hardest to ID.

TRW is a manufacturer of auto parts for the OEM and aftermarket...
There is no liting of head markings for a particular location... there were just certain fasteners spec'd the manufacturers would have their own identifing marks. There were bins of certain size bolts from multiple manufacturers and it was luck of the draw.

958  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Unusual 69 paint inspection marks - are these correct? on: May 26, 2008, 06:06:23 AM
On the black 69 RS/Z I used enamel reducer to remove the black bug bomb someone used to "touch up" under the hood. The enamel reducer will not hurt the original paint on the firewall or inner fenders but it may not be so kind to the B on the firewall, you may want ot mask off where the B is, clean the rest thoroughly and then go back to work on the B much slower.

Who is the best company to buy original parts from?

What are you planning on doing to the car? If the car is as original as it appears, you will want to find good original low wear parts or NOS parts. Most reproduction parts are not 100% authentic when compared to originals and they will detract from the appeal of the car.

I posted the photos of the ford... I was illustrating what the product I recommended will do without harming what is there.
