A lot going on for me but I can try to see what I have. I bet I have 3 dozen or more distributors from 1966 to 1971.

My guess is this topic will continue to fade away.

Post the tag.

Most of the online decoders are just wrong. The CRG decoder is correct.

The L34 engine was not an option for the Camaro in 1967.

I donít see the VIN posted yet.

It is buried earlier in the thread but this is the build data

3rd week of Feb

This car NEVER received a restoration of the level you suggest. It has had shoddy repair and paint work done to it in the past and I have documented every part of it through out my EXTENSIVE restoration. There is no way anyone took this down to a bare shell, sanded to bare metal and then painted the bottom blue. This isn't my first rodeo either, as they say. I've taken a number of cars down to shells and rebuilt them and have a very good idea of what I'm looking at. You haven't seen it in person nor have a good explanation of why it is blue, other than you don't want to believe it's original. I'm really tired of you being negative or any useful advice as to how this car got the bottom painted blue.
How do you explain the blue paint on the bottom of the Z28 ???

Believe what you want. No reason to get upset.

I gave you an honest opinion. It doesnít mean I am right.

I donít know for sure but I just bet itís not original. Itís NOT uncommon to take a car down to bare metal when restoring. Did it a few times in the early 80s with Impalas.

* edited to add word NOT

I don't know what to tell you. Hopefully others see this and respond.

Douglasville, PA


1968 Camaro SS 396, 2 bolt block with internals and 3917215 heads with May dates, crank, etc. There is a deep score down cylinder 4 from a broken ring. Not sure if it will bore out. But the rest of the block is good and its standard.

I donít have anything for comparison but thatís probably typical.

We have had a few site issues recently but none that would cause this as far as I know.

Yes 718 is blue bench seat.

My 68 is an 09C Norwood car. N-2 originally with 749 interior.

From JohnZís assembly article.

"Every time that consecutive cars had different colors, all of those guns had to shoot thinner from the manifolds to the guns (through the floor grates) to clean out the previous color, then charge the line with the new color before they could spray again, and that had to take place in about four seconds."
