Where is the ignition buzzer on a 69?

My 2 cents,
Originality, body parts, condition are all relative to price. You want to pay what a car is worth. Once you buy it if you find another more to you likeing it is nice if you can sell it and at least get most of your money back. Research helps a lot but sometimes the early bird gets the best worm. It is really fun when you pay for something questionable at that price and later find you have something special. I bought my L78 at a price that a clone would be worth and was thrilled later to find out it was the real deal. It is all fun unless you pay for that Z28 only to find out later it is not a real Z28.

Sounds like a carb rebuild to me also. Having 3 cars with Holleys and getting frustrated by my own rebuilds, I found a retired drag racer in Efland NC who only does holleys part time. He was very specific about the kits he uses new more about Holleys than anyone I know. He has rebuilt several since for guys around here with great results. He also gave me a tip about (that leaky Holley). The accelerator pump gasket gets wear everytime you touch the throttle and is the most likely culprit. They are cheap and easy to install. I keep several in my shop. As I go around car shows I see cars with aluminum intakes with the orange tint under the front throttle side of the carb and I know they need one.

Hey Guys,
Being from central NC and growing up in the 60,s and 70,s I can tell you that Carolina Blue cars were not rare here. A friend of mine had a 69 Z28 in about 71 that I am sure had the factory paint. Another friend ordered a Carolina Blue 68 L78 chevelle new and was well known here. It had a black vinyl top as did a 69 or 70 L78 Nova that was well known.I also remember a 70 Monte Carlo the same colors and a 67 SS Chevelle which I think is here and still owned by the original owner if I can find him. Another friend ordered a 78 Monte Carlo Carolina Blue with a white vinyl top which he sold later to brother. Carolina fans here are serious fans and during the 70,s the color was not a strange thing to see. If I locate L. Steele and his 67 ss chevelle I will check the paint code and post it.

Check some cast dates. Block, heads ,exhaust. Might not really prove anything but looking production dates and numbers might make you feel better or worse.

I found out that Comp Cams grinds a hydraulic versun of the 454 LS6 cam. It works amd sounds great. Works great with my automatic also.
232  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro RS/SS or Clone ? on: July 23, 2010, 09:46:52 AM
If the date code on the block indicates it is not a restamp I would bet it is the real deal. At any rate it looks like a nice car with nice options.
233  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro RS/SS or Clone ? on: July 23, 2010, 07:05:05 AM
You only find X codes on 12B and later cars. I have 2 SS cars but proving it without documentation or maybe a matching numbers big block can be tough. Small blocks can also be SS cars but a matching number big block is definite proof.

They are all gray.
235  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Question about Fisher Body date on: July 13, 2010, 01:36:14 PM
The body # on my 12A car is 188744. The vin is 5579XX. It has no X code. That makes me agree that those tags are fake.
236  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 302 DZ Engine... What is the best Cam to run?? on: June 29, 2010, 02:21:27 PM
I have roller tip rockers on mine with stock valve covers. I do not know the brand. They were on the car when I bought it. They are different though because they have caps on the valve stem the roller rides on.
237  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: GM Canada documentation pricing going up on: June 29, 2010, 09:54:09 AM
what is their contact? Can you ask if they have your stuff. The title for my car says out of country origin but I don,t know anymore. It was a PA title but the seller said that code was not always correct.

Kurt,
The trans matches the 72 454. The 12 bolt is original.
239  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim Tag on: June 23, 2010, 06:47:12 AM
KurtS,
My brother picked up the car yesterday after it broke down during the test drive earlier. Do you have any information on the car from when it was on E bay?

Kurt,
How do you know the car? My brother bought it yesterday.
