Research Topics & Reports / Re: L6 cylinder head casting numbers

1967 048 6 cylinder

Thanks for posting that. We determined that the exterior partial casting number may not match the actual casting number under the valve cover.  If you ever have a chance to take a pic with the valve cover off, please do so.

Nut, no argument here, but hearing ďnon ORM trim tagĒ could mean itís a reproduction or from another car. JMHO

Nut?

It's not a repro tag. It's a non OEM tag.

If itís not an original tag, then itís a reproduction tag.

34
No I donít think that is right. Thatís the only page that shows that part number for 68-69. And itís wrong for 67, that was mono leaf springs only.

35
Those are correct for 1970-81 but I am not sure if correct for 68-69.

Lot #1332.2 - This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is #9 of 69 ZL1s produced in 1969. This well-documented car was originally delivered to Fred Gibb Chevrolet of LaHarpe, IL, the dealer that spearheaded the original concept of an all-aluminum engine ZL1 Camaro. Having been through a no-expense-spared restoration, this ZL1 Camaro is "one of the finest in existence," exactly as stated in the accompanying Cuneen Report by Ed Cuneen of COPO Connection. Only the highest-quality components were used in this restoration with a strong emphasis on New Old Stock pieces. A GM factory-assembled body shell was used to correct the extensive body modifications performed during this car's long-term drag-race history. The Cuneen Report that is included with this car features photography and certification of numbered and coded components. Also included with this car is a collection of historical documentation, including the Dealer Shippers copy of the original Window Sticker, the customer's copy of the original Bill of Sale and a copy of the Chevrolet MSO. From the Frank Tiegs Collection.

Market has softened a bit and will probably continue that trend.  It was pretty high (crazy in my opinion).

Someone doing the stamping was having a bad day.

I am not aware of any that are an exact match.

Any good welding shop should be able to fix what you have.

I am sending you a PM.

I think there are probably enough things on the car we can ask about and you can show to keep it in this section.

A lot of cars were ďrestoredĒ in the early and mid 80s with original type paint. A buddy (who passed away several years ago) could duplicate factory paint to the point most people could not tell the difference.

Very nice car, but I think I agree on the repaint. I would have to see in person to say just how much if any paint was original.

The original post said 90 percent of the paint was original.

The documentation is great.

If possible it would be good to see some other details like trunk splatter paint, reverse lockout rod area for the shifter, radiator tag, transmission and axle stamped codes.

Thanks for those. If you can show the transition between the orange at the top of the firewall and the blackout on the firewall that would be good.

It is OK if the bellhousing was repainted.  Post pics of that area anyway when you can.  The shifter area, rods etc is often messed with. Let's see if this one is still original.

If the paint on the back of the car is original, please show some pics of the rear stripes and spoiler.

If the paint on the top of the firewall and cowl is original, please show that area, including the stripes.

Pics of the transmission, shifter, bellhousing and driveshaft (if any colored stripes) would be good.

Thanks!
