16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: If Anyone is Interested in a 67 Pace Car on: January 21, 2014, 12:49:03 PM
While searching the VIN of this car, I got 2 hits. One was this thread, and the other was a website rating this thread and selecting the winning poster. Odd. What the heck is this?

Are we all being judged on our posting skills? I guess I am going to have to practice being more "engaging" without being to "controversial" lol.

And congratulations for winning 69Z28-RS. Better luck next time Mark and 1968RSZ28.

Well, now you can find out EXACTLY what dealer your car was delivered to!

Starting in mid April, 2014, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) will now be able to tell you the dealer code, dealer name, dealer location and the production date your car (1965 through 1972 for Camaro, Chevelle and Nova) was produced!

Now you can have the same information that was previously only available to 1962-1975 Corvettes. Armed with this data, you may be able to find the original dealer where your car was shipped, and possibly find out more information about your Chevrolet.

The Shipping Data Report can only be ordered online but membership in NCRS is NOT required. Fees will be $50 payable by credit card or PayPal and you will receive via USPS a letter with the information which includes the NCRS official seal. Note that in limited cases the dealer code may not be available or readable, and in this case a full refund will be made.

For more information, click HERE and again, note that this servoce starts in mid April, 2014.

This is great news Ed.  I will try it as soon as it is available. I have always suspected my car was sold locally and never ventured far from SoCal. It even has a California dealers license plate frame that may be original. If not, at least I will know what to look for in the future.

Guys woun't your money be better spent on having say... Jerry MacNeish come out and certify your car, as to what it is or is not? I know he can't supply you with photo's taken back in the day, or the POP. I can understand we all want original paper work on our cars, but it's 40 plus years later. People pass on, paper work gets thrown away.

I don't think you are going to get much out of Jerry for $50. Even if you purchase a full blown "certification" what you will get is Jerry's expert opinion on what the car is today. I would bet even Jerry would recommend this service, or provide it as part of his appraisal.

I have the original POP on my car that shows the original owner and selling dealership.  Will this information from NCRS provide anything that I don't already have?  The build sheet is what I'm after to see what options my car was born with.

Thanks,


You have what you believe is the original POP. What if the records show an altogether different dealer than the one shown on your POP?

I am sure this will catch more than one person by surprise. Maybe not you, but for sure there are a lot of made up POP's out there with guestimated dealerships that are not going to match official records.

Tantalizing, to be sure. If the NCRS can pry this out of GM Heritage, it makes you wonder what GM is still has up the corporate sleeve and keeping from us (take the Pontiac records disclosure as an example)? Sure, they are a private company; sure, they are probably worried about legal ramifications, but why not help us out big time and kick the fraud out of the hobby ?

Wishful thinking, only. I definitely welcome the chance to find out some additional info on a couple of my "investments".

Regards -
Steve

Is this information actually coming from GM Heritage, or are they just allowing it to be released from a third party source such as National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB)?

AFAIK, this information has been known as recorded by NICB, but only accessible under special circumstances. It seems NCRS has arranged access for the common man. Great news.
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Supposedly 302 Mustang 'Barn Find' on: January 07, 2014, 03:16:04 PM
Makes for a good story with lots of click trough's.

Ebay also re-blogged it today, but with a bit more back story and of course, a link to the auction.

Looks more 'carefully cared for and preserved classic' than "barn find" to me.

http://www.ebay.com/blogs/stories/pristine-1969-mustang-302-barn-find

Lots more hiding spaces in that barn, think there are any more finds in there?

22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: CAMARO Performers Jan. '14 issue pg. 16 on: December 30, 2013, 05:24:56 PM
That is a keen observation Mark. Even Camaro Performers missed that. They commented on not knowing what the 17 on the firewall meant.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another ebay seller caught in a lie (Geez, now THERE'S a surprise!) on: December 19, 2013, 01:20:58 PM
Not just a liar, but a bad liar. The last FOUR digits are off, not the last 3.

Bid is up to 34,900 and reserve not met. The problem with dishonest sellers is that nothing can be trusted, even the bids are suspect.

Use a crowfoot line wrench. AKA crowfoot flare nut wrench.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro Z/28 Original Transmission and Axle ratio combination on: November 29, 2013, 02:09:31 PM
Thanks Kurt. I forget sometimes there is a small difference between 10 and 12 bolt ratios like 3.08/3.07 and 4.11/4.10.

BTW if you have a special ratio feel free to post it. The poll would get way to complicated if I tried to include all possibilities.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro Z/28 Original Transmission and Axle ratio combination on: November 28, 2013, 03:50:52 PM
Not interested in open or posi rear?
Not for this purpose. I suspect the percentage of posi units is high due to Chevy recommending it with the 3.73 and requiring it with the 4.10 and above.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro Z/28 Original Transmission and Axle ratio combination on: November 28, 2013, 03:39:01 PM
BE or BV or QY is 4.10 ratio.

I voted "4.11 rear" since it's the closest one, and I have a BV code with a M21.


Not quite sure what you mean. 4.11 is not an option from the factory or in the poll.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Camaro Z/28 Original Transmission and Axle ratio combination on: November 27, 2013, 09:36:12 PM
If you have or had an original 1969 Z/28 and know the transmission type and axle ratio please answer.

The 3.73:1 rear axle was the ratio you got unless something else was checked on the order form.
The other axle options were economy, performance, and special where you specified in the ratio.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the breakdown of 4 speed transmision types in 1969 Z/28's? on: November 27, 2013, 09:20:13 PM
maybe a poll would help..... (see the new poll)

Poll is a good idea. I am also interested in the rear axle ratio since the M20 and M21/M22 have different first gear ratios. I find it odd Chevy does not change the standard rear axle ratio based on the transmission first gear ratio since that can make a big difference in drivability. Please excuse, I am going to make a new poll including axle ratio's.

The reason I am looking for this information is a friend just bought an Ebay special X33 car with NOM but supposed to have original transmission and rear end. I thought the info would already be researched, but have not been able to find it. I have not seen the car yet, and am waiting for him to get the numbers.

On the RPO Spreadsheet PDF the # of combined 4 spds (m20,21,22) comes to 66434, but the trans usage chart near the top of page says 4spd usage total is 55813 (1969 year). Why?

Interesting observation. The total of all 1969 transmissions is 256,561 yet only 243,085 cars.

Where did the extra 13,476 transmissions go? The bulk of the discrepancy is in 4 speeds, 10,621. Maybe they went out the back door on 3rd shift!

So much for accurate RPO numbers...
