Ed, I believe all of the original cars that I have seen have had the emblem centered in the stripe.

Six new videos have been uploaded in the past several hours.  These are from one of the 1967 Chevrolet Communication Kits - the one released in November of 1966.  Videos include Opportunity for More Sales, 67 Flat Rate Schedule, Who Me, Meeting the Market with the 67 Chevrolet, Just an Ordinary Guy and Rally Around Camaro. 

Thank You Daniel for these additions!

Again, here is the link to the CRG YouTube channel.

Just my opinion, but those are not the same, and law enforcement knows the difference.

Panel replacement (and documenting each step) is probably OK and is not the "easy way out". 

Moving a VIN tag to a rust free body is a VIN swap.

Again, just my opinion, but...

If the VIN tag stays on the original body, and each part replaced is done one at a time and documented with photos at each step, that is probably OK.

Moving the VIN tag from a car to another body is not OK.

In my opinion, a "rebody" is the same as a "VIN swap" and should be handled the same.
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear axle code on: February 19, 2014, 04:39:54 AM
I picked up the car about 16 years ago in Cottonwood, AZ. It's an Az car as far as I know, don't know what deal ship it came from but live to know. I've not done much to it other than drive and enjoy it. It has A/C and a counsel. Has the standard interior in white. Body is straight and solid. I replaced the headliner and the 2 front bucket because of tears in the material. You all have been very informative.
Thanks!
Here are the codes from the tranny:
Case - 3925660
Tail House - 3857584
Side Cover - 388468
Stamp - P8D15, 39514, C18

Can you post a picture of the area with the P8D15 stamped code? 

And could the rest of it be CT8 39514 rather than C18?  If so, it is a 1968 replacement transmission, assembled April 15, 1968.

I am not an expert on tags, never will be.  But if I was buying the car with that tag, I would pay with $3 bills.    Cool

Do you have anything regarding this VIN ?
124379L517385

RPOZ11 -

What can you tell us about the car?  What is the trim tag data?

Thanks for posting the pics!
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Muncie Transmission tag (pn?) on: January 22, 2014, 09:43:02 PM
Gary, what ratio rear axle do you have?  The normal 3.73?  That part number was used for 3.55, 3.73 and I think 4.10 in 1969.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: crayon marks behind rear seat on: January 22, 2014, 09:36:40 PM
Has anyone ever found any marks in this area on 68 Camaros?
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: engine block 3782870 9x3157 on: January 22, 2014, 09:24:28 PM
Sounds like a 1965 block.  What is the casting number? 
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Fill & Drain Plugs 1969 Muncie M22 on: December 19, 2013, 12:50:13 PM
Another picture showing plugs from both sides.  From left to right.
LISLE MAGNETIC 2
LISLE magnetic
P magnetic
W fill plug (note - not magnetic)
No marks magnetic - current plug that is not correct, but is functional for the task.  I have about 100 of these new.

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 19, 2013, 09:44:36 AM
Rear axle is probably BP 0425G1 - so the assembly date of the housing was April 25.  Your car was assembled the first week of May, so the housing may be original to the car.

The BP code is 2.73 - you probably saw that. That ratio was commonly used in 1969 for the 230, 250 and 327 cubic inch engines when a Powerglide transmission was used. Probably with the 307 engine too, but I can't confirm that at the moment.  My guess is the original engine was a 307.

What size rear tire do you have?  I can figure out approximately what gear ratio it has now if you let me know.

With a 26 inch diameter tire, a 3.73 rear gear will give you about 70 mph at 3400 rpms.

Well I guess there are maybe four different LISLE MAGNETIC 2 plugs.  And the 3 plug is a larger diameter.  

Plug with the 2 in the lower left is probably a 1965-1967 M22 plug.
