How about posting a picture...  I'd like to see what the black top looks like!

Phillip -

Here's what that color combination looks like:

What do you think?  Do you like it?

Agreed $20 to $30K IS a lot of money - however look at the price of new cars. $30 won't even buy a top of the line model Toyota mini van. I know as I own 1 along with my '67. In 10 years the van will be in the junk yard while the Camaro will probably doubled in price.

So perhaps the question should be can you afford NOT to buy one....

Rod -

I like your thinking!!  Now, I need to get my wife to see it like that...    Grin

ok so can you give me an example of the number/date that l might see on the carb?  they are 4 digit numbers l believe?


Earl -

A carburetor with a date code of 0489 to 0949 (2-17-69 to 4-4-69) should be satisfactory.  Everyone agree?

O.K., you replace them for aesthetics.  I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a problem (function-wise) with the original ground straps and screws.  Thank you!

Hi and welcome -

Take a look at this link:

It's the best info we have on exterior colors so far.   Smiley

04C

Earl -

Any carburetor with a date code in the 02C - 04A range should be satisfactory.  Everyone agree?   Smiley

All of these components are available through Rick's First Gen.

JM

Thanks Jerry.  Now I know where to buy them, but I still don't know the logic behind replacing the original ones.   Huh

I'd start by checking all the grounds.

Thanks Jerry!  I wanted to be sure before I start my hunt.

4315  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Carb 69 396 325hp on: May 06, 2007, 10:45:09 PM
as far as date code on the carb. can you give a range that might have been good for my ar/motor? l'm not sure if Jan 1 was day one..... 1009? etc....

What's the build date of your car?

Paul
4316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is this connector for??? on: May 06, 2007, 10:41:17 PM
Ron,

Replace those ground straps and screws too!

JM

Jerry -

Why?  What's your thinking behind this?  Where do you buy replacement ground straps and screws?

Paul

hi all, im looking to buy this 67 convert camaro, they say orignal motor, but i have my doubts. cast# 3902406, cast date( im not sure where to find it) pad# L142277.  please let me know if you can decode it. thanks anthony.

belair -

The 3902406 block (L35 & L78 engines) was used in the Camaro in 1967.  The casting date on this block is located on the right lower side of the block near the freeze plug.  The L142277 could be the partial vin for a Los Angeles built car but should have a "7" before the L.  Does this "partial vin" match the last 7 digits of the vehicle's full vin?  Also, there should be an engine assembly code stamped here on the engine pad close to the partial vin.  Is the engine assembly code there?

1968 engines did receive engine lift hooks.

JM

Ugh!!  Mine are missing.  Jerry, did all the small blocks use the same ones?  Are the ones for 1968 engines the same as any other years?  Do they have any special stampings or (insert here) on them?  Thanks in advance.

Paul

Anybody?

Gambitt, when the commies come, I'm heading to you're house.  Is that your personal stash?

Gambitt, any relation to a John J. Rambo?   Grin
