Original Cars and Details / 68 L78 Rallye Green

This car is no stranger to CRG, but I believe it deserves it's own thread in this section.  Enjoy.

General Discussion / Homepage & Feature Car pics
« on: January 26, 2016, 10:14:26 PM »
We are always looking for pics of cars for use on the homepage.  These can either be just one picture, or we can do a Feature Car write-up. 

Steve has been collecting and taking care of the pics for a long time, since 2006 or earlier. I don't have an exact date. 

The current way of handling this is to send pics to Steve, and then he will forward them to me. Here is his contact information.
**** Steve stopped doing this in 2017 if I remember right. ****

If you want to have a Feature Car write-up, contact me.

Generally for a Feature Car write-up I would like the following.
1.  Cowl tag information about original colors, etc.
2.  1-2 Side view pics.
3.  1-2 Pics showing side and front of car (at an angle).
4.  1-2 Pics showing side and rear of car (at an angle).
5.  2 Engine bay pics.
6.  2 Pics of interior.

If you have any vintage pics, we can try to include those as well.  I generally don't like to have people in current pics, but may consider using them if they are vintage and you give permission to use them.

Pic size of 1064 x 728 is preferred.  If you can't do that, at least make the file size of each pic 1 MB or less please.  :)

Links for previous Feature Cars are below.

Original Cars and Details / 68 Z28 Butternut Yellow
« on: December 21, 2015, 01:45:46 AM »
This car is well known on this site, and many, many pics are in this thread.

But thought this car should be in this section.

We are wanting pics to highlight a certain feature or features on original cars.

Items will be added as time allows. 

Send me a PM if you want to submit your car to highlight a feature and we will go from there. Ideally - if you have pics already posted on another site (like photobucket) we can just link to those. 

The term "Survivor" does not have the same meaning for everyone, so we have eliminated use of that word for this section.  A picture is worth a thousand words.

This section is meant to be FUN and INFORMATIVE. 

Original Cars and Details / New Section
« on: December 04, 2015, 01:37:10 PM »
Stayed tuned for expansion in this category...

We will plan on doing one car or one topic per thread for now.

Who can start a thread is limited (the same as in the Research Topics and Reports section), but anyone can post.

We have had another thread going looking at the stampings on 1969 axles that used the two different casting numbers late in the year.  This topic is related, but takes a wider look, and is also looking for information from 10 bolt axles which are more common.

If you would like to participate, you can post the following please.

1.  Casting number on the center section.
2.  Casting date on the center section (in the "webbing" area).
3.  Data stamped on the front part of the passenger side axle tube.  Picture requested please.

Make sure your car (or the axle) was assembled between May of 1969 and the end of the model year.

You can either post it here, so send me a PM.  If you send a PM, your photos will be kept confidential.

Thanks in advance.

There is a separate thread asking about 1969 Z28 Camaros with the RS option and production numbers.  There are no solid numbers on how many 1969 Z28s also had the RS option, so we are doing this poll.  Thanks in advance!

General Discussion / June - ROTM on TC

Check this out.  Some very nice candidates again this month.  I voted for a green car.   8)

My car definitely is not a show car, but I may try to get some high quality pics this summer.  And may enter in the future.

6-cylinder Camaros / Water pump information
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:11:36 AM »
I am looking for water pump casting numbers and dates from 230 and 250 cubic inch engines.  If you could post your information here, that would be greatly appreciated.


Research Topics & Reports / 6 cylinder water pump data needed
« on: August 14, 2014, 07:49:51 PM »
I am putting together some information on water pumps used on 67-69 Camaros.

If you have an original water pump from an L6 230 or 250 cubic inch engine, please post a picture.  Please try to include the casting number and date code in the picture or pictures.


Originality / late 68 model year Z28 heads
« on: August 03, 2014, 03:07:33 PM »
OK, I know that most (possibly all?) 1968 Z28s used the 3917291 heads with 2.02 intake valves.

I looked at a very late (I think 3rd week of July) 1968 Z28 that did not have the original block but did have some of the original engine parts.

Owner THOUGHT the heads might be original.  But they were casting number 3927186 and dated June of 68.

Is there anyone that can confirm the 186 heads were used on any late model year cars? 

Originality / Original Carb Finish
« on: March 29, 2014, 04:51:23 PM »
I picked up this carburator the other day.  It is a 7028210 EE carb dated 3627 (362nd day of 1967) for 1968 396/325 hp automatic.

The carb was a GM donated carb for Education purposes, so it saw no use.  It has been slightly modified for teaching purposes and also I assume to disable it from just being taken and bolted onto a car for use.  Also has a sticker on it that says "DONATED BY GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES".

See these images and I will try to post more later.  They are good references for what an assembly line part looked like.

Research Topics & Reports / Earliest 3969341 and Latest 3894860 axles
« on: January 09, 2013, 03:48:08 AM »
It appears that 12 bolt rear axles with casting number 3969341 started showing up in 69 Camaros sometime around early August of 1969.  Prior to this, only the 3894860 casting number was used.  

What I am looking for are dates (casting date of housing and assembly date stamp - with letter codes - on the axle tube) for early 3969341 axles and late 3894860 axles.  If you know it is original to the car, you can post the body assembly date from the cowl tag too.

Please let me know what you have.  Post pics if possible.  There was probably somewhat of an overlap, but not sure how much.    

Thanks in advance!
