Probably 10 or so years ago I ordered all new labels for my 1967 SS 396 Chevelle and they were PERFECT.  But I don't think that guy is still in business. Someone out there should be able to reproduce them.

My 68, NOS period correct version. Car is unfortunately in the bag till springÖ


Steve, this pic and the one of the box might be clear enough to put in the article.  Would it be possible to send the full file size photos to my email?  I will message you direct with my email address.

Thank you all.

Still looking for the 67 light with bulb and wiring attached.

That appears to be an original light and thank you for posting. Unfortunately for the report we are ideally looking for one on the car, and one that looks pretty new with no corrosion. Hard to come by I know, otherwise we would have already had one.

OK what is the assembly date of the Posi?

I would just roll with it and not worry about it.

I assume no documentation for the car?  Still have the original engine and transmission?

Jim can you send the information on both to me or Kurt so they can be added to the CRG database?  I don't think we have those.

Is this rear end associated with a particular car or is it loose?

Bare housing or complete?

If complete, how do the ring and pinion dates and the posi date compare to the housing assembly date?

I was lucky enough to be the one who got itÖ

It was freshly bored 060. Damage mentioned was very minimal, a 1/4Ē chunk taken out of the bottom of a cylinder from a rod that went south at some point in its past.  386 block, VIN is 561327 as noted.

 Crank was a std/std 1178, nice set of used 060 TRW 2210ís, but had small journal rods hung on them, so Iíll need to replace those. Heads were wrong as well.  I will source the rest of the correctly dated parts that I donít already have in my inventory and put this thing together , then tuck it into a corner for a rainy day.

Tough to find a real one anymore. Especially at a decent price.

Donn was a very nice gentleman...we talked for a couple hours.

Did he know what happened to the car?

Chevy 302 DZ  Block, Crank, pistons and rods, heads, bearings, block plug set
Date code Nov 1968
Crank: Std / Std
Bore: .060
Trw pistons
Engine was damaged at one time.
Checked and magnafluxed OK.
Good for restoration or street engine, would not recommend  for high rpm racing

From the listing.

That was a good price.

Not common. But it seems genuine.

Read what Kurt said.

Eaton only supplied the Posi units and must cars did not get a Posi.

No need for all caps.

There were optional hood lights for all 3 years.

For the hood report, still in progress, we need some original under hood light detailed photos. If possible try to show the back part of the hood and the light, plus close up pics of the light.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for posting!

I will need to check what we still need.

I bought it.

If the owner of the car wants it, I am sure we can work something out. Otherwise itís a nice addition to my 67-69 paperwork collection.

No drain plug. 2 rings on the input shaft. M20.

Assembly date starts with P9 so it is for the 1969 model year. I did not see a partial VIN but my guess most likely from a GTO based on the shifter mount.
