Oh, these codes (L35, L48, M20 or any other), where can these codes be found (buildsheet, invoice,??).

Rob -

These codes can be found on both the dealer invoice and the build sheet.  I've attached two photos below.  One is an original dealer invoice for a 1968 Z/28 and the other is an original build sheet for a 1970 LS5 Chevelle.  You can see the option codes on both of these pieces of documentation.

In fact I'll take a 68's protecto plate with its computer punched VIN number applied to the booklet cover against any other production years cowl tag or paper documentation as solid documentation any day of the week Smiley  

Good point Pat!  I haven't heard of anybody trying to fake the punched vin on the '68 warranty book.

That's getting close to mine, close enough to make a guy dream of the day when I see that magic number come up............

Thanks for posting this stuff, it would be easy to miss.

No problem!  Don't worry, we'll find it one of these days.    Grin

So I guess this makes 68's the easiest "clone" of the first gens ?!?!

Yes, in a way.  But remember in 1968 all 350cid and 396cid engines leaving the factory in Camaros were Super Sports!  So if the car you're looking at has it's original engine with the factory stamped engine assembly code and partial vin on the engine pad it's a SS.  Good luck.

Thanks, Paul! The pics are great!  I have to ask, how did you get that straight on angle? Was the motor ought of the car?

Your welcome Phil.  The engine is still in the car (I'll send you an engine shot).  I just leaned over the header panel as far as possible and took the shot.  I have a SLR camera which makes it easy.  Also, this car has manual brakes, so I didn't have to contend with the power brake booster.  Let me know if you need anything else.

Here's a photo of a typical GM multi-stand press line of the era; more of the presses are below floor level than above, and today a press line like that would cost about $80 million.

Cool photo John.  $80,000,000!  Makes those $1500 NOS GM quarter panels seem cheap.    Grin

But all you have to do is click on the little white envelope symbol to the left.

When your email address is "hidden" there is no little white envelope symbol to the left.    Smiley

Dano -

The procedure is very simple.  Of course you will have to remove the rear seat in order to remove the trim panel (also very easy).  My only tip is to lightly scribe around the regulator mounting hardware in order to install the new regulator as close as possible in position to the original regulator.  This should minimize any adjustments you might have to make.  If you have access to a 1968 Fisher Body service manual, the procedure is listed step by step.  Good luck!

that's why I would spend all morning waxing the car before a Saturday night date.  Had to make it shine!   Grin  Grin  Grin

I guess that's the difference when you own a Z/28, I'd spend all morning adjusting the valves, carb, dwell, timing, etc. before a Saturday night date.  Of course, my dates were with Mustangs, Cudas, etc. at the local drag strip!    Grin    Grin    Grin

What's your email address?  You have it "hidden" on your profile summary.
