4261  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Which Wheel? on: October 12, 2007, 03:31:16 PM
What wheel was used in 68 if the car had front disc brakes?  What was the offset?

Phil -

1968 Camaros with front disc brakes used these wheels:

1) 14x6 steel wheel = "XF" code.  Offset:  +.50"

2) 14x6 rally wheel = "XG" code.  Offset:  +.50"

3) 15x6 rally wheel = "DF" code.  Offset:  +.50"   (Z/28 only)    Smiley

Any idea how long a car took from start to finish?

Sorry I had some wrong days because of wrong calander.S355 would be 19th of feb which was 4hweek and car was 5th week of Feb car 02E. I guess if it took a week to build the cars this all adds up as the work order nubers were made a couple days ahead of starting body build.

firez -

The S355 on your trim tag is the Fisher Body body scheduling code.  The "S" does not represent the 19th day of the February, but the 19th day of the Fisher Body production calendar for February.  Assuming they worked Monday through Friday only with no holidays off (anybody know for sure?) in February 1968 your car would have been started on February 27, 1968.  February 27, 1968 is in the fifth week (05E) of February 1968!  Read this for more detail and info:  http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#CowlTag

Still looking for someone with a LA car to compare the trim tag build date to the work order number. Thanks

The Fisher Body body scheduling code on my 02C Van Nuys built '68 Z/28 is L188.  L = the 12th day of the Fisher Body production calendar for February (or February 16th, 1968??).  February 16th, 1968 is in the third week of February (02C) 1968!    Smiley

Paul

P.S.  These dates are just an estimate by me.    Huh   I don't know if the Van Nuys plant work Saturdays or had any holidays off (Lincoln's birthday, Washington birthday, etc.) in February 1968.  Maybe JohnZ knows.    Smiley

My  02E z28 out of L.A. has the exact same caliper dates as does your z.

WOW!!    Shocked    Two Van Nuys '68Zs built one to two weeks apart with all four brake caliper dates the same!!     Cool    I guess they are original.    Grin

Hi Guys -

Just for fun I checked the "numbers" on the brake calipers on my 02C Van Nuys built '68Z.  Here's the data on the calipers:


Left front caliper:

Inner half casting number:  5455530
Julian date:  304  (October 31,1967)    Assuming per Ed's comment, that this number is the julian date.

Outer half casting number:  5455533
Julian date:  37  (February 6, 1968)


Right front caliper:

Inner half casting number:  5455530
Julian date:  346  (December 12, 1967)

Outer half casting number:  5455533
Julian date:  352  (December 18, 1967)


I'm assuming my calipers are original as the car has been in storage for 26 years and the only unoriginal part I've found on the car is the water pump.  Hope this helps...    Smiley
