Someone over at Team Camaro makes custom stickers.. I had him make a couple for me a few years ago.  383 Turbo-Fire 425 Hoesepower sticker for my ZZ383 crate engine.

My Dad and I built a VW Manx dune buggy that became my first driver in '69.  But my first real car was a '68 Z/28 that I bought in '71.  I had it only 2 years.  When sold in '73 I bought a '56 Nomad.  A few others over the years. I bought my current '69 Camaro in '2005 turning a gramdma car into a Z/28 clone.  ZZ383, Autogear M22W. Moser 12 Bolt.  All the good stuff.

Would the date stamp be a "T" and not a "V"?

I considered buying a '68 Z/28 in Rally Green back in '71.  It was a stripe delete car and was still original paint.  I didn't care for the color and the motor had already been patched up from spinning a rod bearing.  I didn't buy it.  It had the numbers matching "MO" engine with the matching VIN.

In hind sight I guess I shouldn't have let it get away.  I later bought a Lemans Blue '68 Z. and only had it for 3 years.  Wonder where it is today?

I don't see an oil galley plug with a hex head in that first posted picture on the first page.??

I like the fatter tire look.  I've been happy with 235's on 7" rims up front and 255's with 8" rims out back.  I have #6320 front springs with no rubbing problems.

Aren't most Cal-Trac systems done on single leaf springs?  Or is it that Cal-Tracs work better on single leaf spring cars.

Couldn't the ZL2 hood be ordered on other Camaro models?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Oil Pan leaks... ugh.. on: December 03, 2013, 02:22:33 PM
Good Luck!  The Fel-Pro one-piece gasket leaks just as bad.  Mine has leaked for the last 4 years.   Leaks at the front and at the back.  Not a drip but a seeping leak.  I usually wipe the oil pan down with a rag before the leak gets to the floor.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hole by ignition switch? on: October 09, 2013, 08:45:43 PM
My 68 Z had a hole there. I added it. I put a backup lite switch there since the switch on the Muncie was not working.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: F41(1969) on: May 26, 2013, 04:55:05 PM
I know it's possible.  The car was just in great condition with low miles.  On the other hand my '68 Z had been run pretty hard by a previous owner but still the original drive train.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: F41(1969) on: May 24, 2013, 02:56:08 PM
Would a '68 Camaro with the F41 option come with multi-leaf rear springs.  I helped a friend years ago put Hi-Jackers on a big block car (396/325) that only had single leafs.  I thought at the time that this was strange.  It also had drum brakes all around.  And it was an SS.  This was in '71.  It was a 4-speed car, but with a Saginaw not a Muncie.  In '71 it was an un-molested car with under 25K on the speedo.

I don't remember if it had a 12 bolt.  Undecided

I don't know what the practice was in '69 but today when a part number changes and they are physically still the same, the change is due to a change in vendors.  The number change is how they keep track of inventory when a vendor change is made.

(34 years Mercedes Benz parts experience at the dealership level)

Just my 2 cents,  Dave

It also has a "Muncie" hole in the firewall for the speedo cable.
