It would be nice to see a photo of the tag...

To pull out the interior part, you just need to get to the five.

The RSC style are the ones I remember. I don't recall seeing the indented style like John Z's but they certainly appear like they are orignals.

There are of course some very early '67 Zs in the registry. Comparing data from this car's trim tag with those of the very early Z's, I am confident that this was not an original Z-28 even though Zs were using the 4P code at that time. It has to do with the correlation of numbers to one another, much like what has been observed on '69 COPOs and such. I don't want to get into specifics beyond that as I think it then starts getting into info that could be useful to counterfeiters.

With the trunk lid in the raised position, it would be toward the bottom and in the middle (from side-to-side) for a '67. An stamping example would be T52.

I've seen a whole lot of brake drums that looked like they were never painted. Maybe it was a LOS vs NOR thing.

3082  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Body color on firewall on: February 03, 2011, 12:01:00 PM
Now that's interesting. I have seen a lot of cases where there are signs of body color overspray on the front face of the firewall, which led me to believe the black firewall was painted first and the body color came later. I think this may be the first case of where there is black overspray on the top of the cowl as done by the factory (not an owner-applied spray can job).

The Vortec heads use the center-bolt valve cover design and are not visually identical from the outside just by painting them orange. Vortec heads also use a different design intake. It's all good stuff but does not have the original look, if that's something you care about. The 186s are a good set of heads. A competent local machine shop can pocket port down in the bowl and set you up with 2.02s. Definitely put in screw-in studs if you use the heads.

I personally like the CE option but I guess I'm in the minority.

3085  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: owner history of 124677L152451 on: January 29, 2011, 04:01:46 PM
Just have it noted that the car is a C-1 Pacer and that it was in the Chevy Pace Car book, which I assume you already know. No past ownership history.

-Jon
3086  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: RPO MA6 on: January 29, 2011, 01:41:57 AM
I believe Charley Lillard had a documented '69 Z once where the original owner ordered the MA6 and it wasn't built with that option. Not sure if that means it was never actually available or if it just was not available at the time the car actually got built.

3087  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Did Interior Panels have Date codes? on: January 24, 2011, 08:33:01 PM
Yes, I believe they were date coded. Here's how mine were ink stamped (12437CLGR52) and the "52" coincides very well with the build week of my car.

Regarding the looks of the new pace car, generally the car looks nice and the colors pay a nice homage to history, which I like. I guess what I have a complaint about is the style of the stripes. They are done in the style of a Shelby Mustang, too close together and running all the way down the front and the back. Granted, they are a different color than a Shelby but they still say Shelby to me when I look at them. My personal preference is to space them further apart and not have them run down the front and back.

I don't have that info but here's a copy of the sheet.

No, it is white on top of the cowl, not a shadow. I owned the car at one time however now it is back in the hands of the original owner. The car is Tahoe Turquoise by the way.
