I know you guys have nice tools but I have used this method for years and it works. Remove # 1 plug. Stick your finger in the hole and have someone bump the engine. When the compression blows past your finger line up the rotor with # 1 wire on the cap. set the vac advance midway travel and fire it up. Then adjust timing. Try it, it works.

Hurst shifters that came on GM cars did not have the shift stop bolts where as the after market ones did. That is the most notable sign.

I did the math on my 08E 69 by the CRG site and it worked out to the 25th. My NCRS papers say the 28th. Pretty close I think.

You could have multiple problems. I would remove both motors and check the doors for binding. then in the half open position both limit switches should let power through to test the power to the connector in both open and close modes. If you door linkage is binding the motor won,t appear to work. If the the motors are not new while off I would open the transmission part and clean and regrease the gears and the shaft. After that bench run them to work it in. On my vette (same set up) one side was always slower until it stopped. After the the clean and regrease it was faster than the other so I had to pull it and redo it to get the speeds to match.  The limit switches also tend to corrode and sometimes work intermittingly. An electrical spray contact cleaner sprayed around the button while pushing in and out several times sometimes helps. Also while testing everything on the car you might want to put a charger on the battery. They can drain power quickly and then things get eradic. Many people have have pulled a lot of hair trouble shooting the systems. Also clean where the ground screws goes to bare metal at both ends and wirebrush the screw eyelets to insure your grounds are secure. Testors will sometimes show a ground but it goes away under load

I always thought non console shifters came with black knobs from the factory.

You could for $50.00 run that # through the NCRS and find the selling dealer. Would be a start.

My 69 was painted in 2001 with Standox which then was a  German Co. at that time but it has been bought by Dupont and is in paint stores. It looks as good today as 2001. It is not a trailer queen but it has been has been stored inside. When trying to match the Rally Green 1977 laquer on my other car we shot some cards with Chroma base and Standox and the Standox won the match.

Never sued over a car but been in several suits. Looks like the ad might hurt you. New quarters? does not say how they were installed. New floors, well they are just not right. 350 at? well it does not say it is good. Not a show car? driver? did it drive? Wish you luck. I think you just went to the school of hard knocks.

Harbor Freight sells the IR tool for usually $29.00. One of the best tools I have bought lately. It is as accurate as the $600.00 one we have at work, just does not record or do thermal images. They have many uses.

I looked at a NOS with the box at the Raleigh NC show a couple years ago. It was darker than mine. Mine (64k miles) looks like Johns, a little oranger than the NOS. The NOS lasted about 30 minutes at $2500.

Don,t know about the car but I might would keep the girlfriend.

What is that dealers location? I have been thinking since many people are getting information of maybe a poll with the dealer and location plus car info such as SS, Z28, or base. I would be interested to see which state maybe sold the most muscle cars. PA seems to be popular but maybe not.

x codes appeared around 12B of 68. My 12A 55xxxx has no X code.
