  ok I think I understand the problem.... was there a different air cleaner extension used for the Big Block cars and therefore a different seal???

I know this has been discussed before... and this pic has probably been around the block... but how can a judge tell you that this combo does not exist...?  Comical reply's only please  Grin

ps why did you say that A39 and A85 do not exist?

The codes may have been used elsewhere in GM, just not on Camaro and not for those options.

For the record Custom Deluxe Belts [req on Z11] were YA1, Front Shoulder Belts were YA3.

....because I spent two hours going through the CRG POP options sheet... and found A39 and A85.  The 8 page printout did not make it clear that they were 67-8 only.  In fact for the YA1 and YA3 I am referred back to A39 and A85.... so you can see my confusion.

I deciphered my Protect-O-plate.  Numbers all match my drive line.... the 1& 3 on positions ABCD below the Rear Axle Code are offset.... so it can be any of N40,J50,Any Radio or J52 which the car has all of anyway  (PS,PB,Radio,Discs)

So far it looks like I am missing an underhood lamp and have the wrong antenna. (and a crappy window sticker?)

Thanks guys

Thanks William...               

I just had a horrible knot in my stomach, glad I got the protect-o-plate..

(not that I know how to decipher it...) 

ps why did you say that A39 and A85 do not exist?

if the rest of that original paint looks close to that then .... wow
232  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help decoding my 69 vin on: December 05, 2006, 11:51:17 AM
And a bad one at that.

A39 & A85 did not exist. Many of the ECLs are incorrect; "5ZJ7AG" indicates 14 x 6 rally wheels.

The form is incorrect and the body number is missing.

ok so that really bites:  I can guess that the guy that sold me the car "forged" it???
Doesn't seem to be the type of guy that would do that on purpose but you never know...

Help...  I have the original protect-o-plate... is there information on that which can back track to what options should have been on the car???  It is on my first post picture... inverted so you can read it better...

any comments good or bad are appreciated..

Not a good pic... but like this.
234  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: PTB stamps on: December 03, 2006, 06:16:36 PM
My unrestored February '68 built Norwood car has orange PTB stamps on both sides of the cowl. Still very clear. I am trying to figure out a way to preserve them when the time comes to restore the engine compartment. Smiley

Did you ever get any pictures... love to see them.

Thank you very much for the input guys.... so the antenna I have is inccorrect.  It is a fixed mast.  It was on the copy of the window sticker as "rear manual antenna" so I don't know about the actual invoice, just the window sticker that was reproduced by General Motors.. I have a pic of it.  So thats all the information that you get from the cowl plate?  Does anyone know if the protect-o-plate provides any other information... or do I just base it on the window sticker?

also I added a link to the pace car at the bottom of my webpage.

There are a couple of weird things on my 69 pace car... ordered with AM radio and manual rear antenna.  Problem is the antenna is mounted on the front fender.  I read in another post that the antenna was deleted on the rear if you had the spoiler, but it still showed as a $9.50 option on the dealer invoice.  Also another post said that the AM antenna came as a manual telescopic antenna... my car has the fixed mast.  Could this antenna be correct or do I have to look for a telescopic one?

Thanks... here is a pic of my cowl plate and vin if anyone cares to decipher it for me I appreciate your knowledge and interest.

Thanks for the response.... time to trim it.  As for the black lid... thanks for that info also.
238  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Hidden Vin on: December 01, 2006, 11:11:08 PM
Looks to me that you have something there... not enough though compared to what was found on my 69

what is your vin?




239  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 Cowl Induction Air Cleaner Question update update! on: December 01, 2006, 10:32:34 PM
Wonder if you can help me.  My 69 SS 350 with cowl induction hood.... the rubber seal on top of the air cleaner seems to be overlapping the hood insulation by a couple of inches... particularly on the left side.... looks to be pressing on the insulation instead of the hood itself.  Was there more than one seal?  Or is my hood insulator just a poor reproduction?

2nd question... my air cleaner cover is black... were they offered as chrome on the 350 or was that strictly for the big block car?

thanks
