1967 11D - 327 car - Norwood
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 Dipstick...3896912? on: November 12, 2014, 09:03:36 AM
A few years ago they changed the design of 3896912.  It used to be available in the original appearance.  Now it comes with the new style yellow plastic handle.  It is no longer correct appearing.  It should function OK but it will stick out like a sore thumb.

I have found the Ace/True Value hardware seems to have this thin-walled hose as well.

I too am interested to know this information.  Which plants do the codes to the "T", "H", "K" correspond to?   
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What do I have for a 327 on: October 08, 2014, 11:33:33 AM
Looks like a 1962 327 from a full size car.

For comparison:

http://collectorcarauction.net/view-consignment-detail.aspx?ConsignmentID=1335

This car was at Carlisle in the Auction last Thursday.  The high bid reach somewhere in the low 30s and it was for sale afterwards for $36,000.  This car was CLEAN and well presented.  It essentially needed nothing.  It was a numbers matching SS350 car with factory AC,  power glide transmission and deluxe red interior with headrests.

I am fairly certain the reference to 1973 and older has to do with emissions requirements in place starting in 1974.

As I recall they were a limited edition numbered series of 430 engines.  The engines all came with a jacket for the owner which corresponded to the number of the engine.  The engines were pretty stout and featured the, then new, fast burn heads which if I recall should have a "D" shaped exhaust port.  Should be a good strong Camaro!

NMVTIS is the national public title database established by the Department of Justice after a report by the FBI concerning vehicle branding and cloning was being washed by the individual states titling and branding practices.  For instance one state may a flood brand for the titles and another state may not an instead brand it salvage or reconstructed.   If someone with a flood title no longer wanted a flood title they would only have to run it through another state that doesn't recognize the flood brand.  The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) was established to connect the public and the individual states DMV offices with each other.

What this means for collectors is that with access to this database we can tell if a car is still registered and in what state.

This car still exists and is still registered in some state.  I ran the VIN through NMVTIS and can see that it still exists.  Run the VIN through http://www.add123.com/ and pay $4.95 and you can know the state it is registered in.  With this you can see if you can track down the current owner.

I didn't pay the $4.95 to find out the state, but it is good to know that the car exists.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Good deal on 69 GM Overhaul Manual on ebay on: August 07, 2014, 10:10:14 AM
The overhaul manual shows you how to rebuild the components of the vehicle.  The service manual shows you how to service the components and remove and reinstall the components.  The overhaul manual is not always needed, but it often has information not found in Chiltons or Motors manuals so I consider it a valuable resource to be included in the vehicle's library.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fuel Line - '67 L30 w/Q-Jet on: June 16, 2014, 07:58:24 AM
Why don't you get a pump with a 3/8" output and install a fitting for a 3/8" input on the carburetor?  That way you can take full advantage of your 3/8" fuel line.  But I agree with Darrell above, it shouldn't cause any issues leave it 5/16" from the pump to the carb.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 12 bolt Rear axle Decode 69 PJ code ? on: June 04, 2014, 08:51:48 AM
Is the filler plug 3/4" or 1"
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Zeroing in on X code start up on: May 29, 2014, 06:26:54 AM
Since the X-codes were on the Fisher Body side of the plant and before the car got a VIN wouldn't it perhaps be more proper to analyze Fisher Body Numbers and cowl tag dates as opposed to VINs which were assigned on the Chevrolet side?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 DASH VIN # on: May 05, 2014, 03:00:12 PM
I agree, do not sand the block. 

If you are concerned about your car, how about taking pictures of the dash VIN and cowl tag and posting them?  A picture of the dash VIN without the dash pad in place would be ideal so that the members here can evaluate the rivets and the complete VIN tag piece.
