1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: December 21, 2014, 01:13:22 AM
We are getting close to working on a report for driveshafts. 

I may be contacting some of you soon to see if I can get your permission to use some of your photos.

Well I still say the price at $32K is too high.  Take a look at the rust issues.  You will have at least another $20K in it if my suspicions are true.

It is a car to buy, if you can get it for the right price.  No doubt.

Paint code is L - Teal Blue, but car looks like it is Lemans Blue now?

Things are looking OK so far.  Price seems high based on the rust issues I see, and the additional rust issues I expect you will find. 

See if you can get a picture of the POP.

Do you know the rear axle code?

Rob, that pic will not load for me either.  I tried IE and Firefox.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Intake Date Code on: December 19, 2014, 11:13:26 AM
How about  intake # 3933163 date 3-29-68 on a motor # 3935440 date G 1 8  L.A. 69 car ?

Late March intake on an early July engine is maybe a bit long, but within reason. And that intake is not as common.

Others may have a different opinion.

Six months is still a long time, and not typical in most cases for an intake that had common usage.

01 9V is likely January of 1969, Flint - based on the casting date of January 17, 1969. 

What is the casting number?

Thanks for posting that Tim.  On my browser it looks fine. I will look it all over and put into a spreadsheet. Pics would be great if you could send to my email.

Jim you can send it to my email if you want.

Awesome picture John.  Thanks for posting it!!!
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: pad stamp? on: December 12, 2014, 12:34:31 AM
it looks like the date code is made with gang stamp and vin was stamped individually because they're out of line.  is that right?

Is this from the car you are interested in?  The image of the V0417MO stamp.

If so, can you have them clean off the paint on the pad with some lacquer thinner and a rag?  Then take a better picture.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Service Engines (CE coded) on: December 11, 2014, 03:58:08 PM
Gary, and that is a very short history you had to check back on.  And still the paperwork is not there.  I believe what you have been told is right.  The time from when the engine was blown and the replacement block was cast seems like only about a week or less.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Burnished brown Z/28's on: December 10, 2014, 09:35:22 PM
Tracking it down would be easier with the VIN.  But I do think it would be worth looking for if you want it back.

Oh, and I like the color a lot!
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: What carburator for my 454 LS 5 M22 3.07/1 possi 67 conv. on: December 10, 2014, 07:15:32 PM
Jack, what do you plan to be your max engine rpm.  A 650 cfm carb will work if economy is what you are after.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 396-375 H.P. JJ CODE ? on: December 10, 2014, 01:37:10 PM
Not crazy about the stamp.  Better picture would help.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: if you could go back and redesign the 67/8 .. or that other one, on: December 09, 2014, 09:33:45 PM
I don't really think I would change much with the styling.  Would have been nice to have had a factory 427 in 67 and 68 though.   Grin

70 wasn't bad either.   Smiley
