Decoding/Numbers / 1969 Transmission date and VIN
« on: February 14, 2010, 02:50:41 PM »
Let me know what you think of this one.  I have asked a couple of experts already.  M22 assembled in late January but VIN of the car stamped on it is from early August.  

Does anyone else have a big time gap from when your M22 was assembled compared to when it was installed in the car?  Thanks.

OK, I know the codes for M20, M21, M22 (A, B, C) were not supposed to start until around late October 1968, at least on Chevy cars. But could Pontiac and Olds have started sooner?

I have a Muncie that I think is from an early 1968 Firebird.  The date code is P8B07c with a partial VIN of 28L100919.  I found pictures of two other transmissions with a similar small "c" stamp after the date code.  All stampings look very simillar.  I wonder if someone is trying to fool people that these are M22s or what is going on?  These are all from different parts of the US.  The trans I have was in an IMCA modified stock car, converted to a 2 speed with M20 gears in it.  So it was not fooling anyone there. I have gears to put it back to being a 4 speed M20.  I have never seen any of these small "c" marks on a Chevy transmission.  Does anybody have any ideas?

I have attached a picture.  This is from Muncie #2.  I have pictures of the two others but can't post now due to size limits.  I can send them to anyone interested that would like to comment.

Muncie 1 - the trans I have - date code P8B07c with a partial VIN of 28L100919
Muncie 2 - an Olds 442 trans? - date code P8C06c with partial VIN of 38Z117242
Muncie 3 - a Pontiac trans (GTO ?) - date code is P8A19c with partial VIN of 28P244597

Any help you can provide to explain this will be appreciated.

General Discussion / Locking gas cap for 68 SS ???
« on: September 24, 2008, 03:28:32 AM »
Does anyone know if any company makes a locking SS gas cap for a 68 Camaro, or does anyone know
of a way to convert a normal SS cap to a locking one?

Why did the original SS gas caps never seem to fit correctly?

Sorry if this has been asked before.  I tried a search but came up empty.

Originality / Cowl vent panel differences ?
« on: September 22, 2008, 08:07:15 PM »
Does anyone know if there is a different cowl panel used with a cowl induction hood versus a regular flat hood or an SS hood?

Someone that I know has one and thinks it is for a 68 Camaro, but it might be from a Firebird.  Would one from a 67=68 Firebird work?

Thanks in advance and sorry if this question has come up before.

General Discussion / Marina blue versus Lemans Blue
« on: April 04, 2007, 04:21:20 AM »
Someone tried to tell me that 1967 Marina Blue on a Chevelle is the same as Lemans Blue on a 1968 Camaro.  I don't think so, but what is the truth?  Does anyone know?  They are close, but I don't think they are the same.
