I could not get you in numbers off the trans or rear end.  Only jacks i have at home at 5 ton,  and nothing will go under the car

You really don't need a jack to see the rear axle code. You can see it from just crawling under the car in most cases.  See this link.

Did you check the engine code?  See this location.

More specifically, here. In front of the passenger side cylinder head.

What makes you this is a 30,000 mile car?  Service records?  Other documentation?

And you mentioned "under the cowl tag" a few times.  There are no numbers in that location.

I told you wrong on the shifter on the column,  its P R N D L,    So im assuming that is power glide?

Yes, it appears the original transmission was a Powerglide.

Which 350?  Check the numbers on the front pad of the engine block (in front of the passenger side cylinder head) and let us know what the numbers and letters are there.  Post some pics of the car if you can.

Some cars had a column shift.  It is a manual or automatic transmission. Which rear axle?  There will be a code there on the front edge of the middle of the passenger side axle tube.

Thanks Ed.
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 68 PP code axle on: December 13, 2013, 11:58:13 AM
I was reading the Production numbers for 1968.

PP code for 3.07 in 1968 only 560 were produced?

Is this a Typo or was that really the number?

My 68 has a PP 1122G2

Someone will correct me if I am wrong.  PP code in 1968 is 3.07 open with metallic brakes.  

If you are talking about the RPO spreadsheet, I believe that does not include the cars that would have had the 3.07 rear as standard.  From the Power Teams chart, 3.07 was standard with the 350/295 hp engine and a Powerglide, also with the 396/325 hp engine and either the 3 spd or 4 spd manual transmission.

What engine and transmission does your car have?

I have been an on off member of this site for 3 or 4 years but have been very busy with life the last year or so and have not been involved . I did own a sweet rs ss 67 ragtop clone for 4years but sold it this past June when we moved.  I recently bought another 67 ragtop and  immediatly put the car in storage to build a garage.  I am the fourth owner and have the original protector plate for the car. The previous owner says the car is numbers matching. I have not had time to confirm this due to the garage build and the car being in storage. It is a 327 four barrel 3 speed Saginaw with a deluxe/custom interior. 10 bolt open rear end.Manual brakes manual top.  This car has the factory set of console gauges and dash tack.  I know these features were all available at the time of production but is it a little odd to see a non rs ss car with the gauge package and deluxe interior with a 3 speed Saginaw.  Where the 3 speed sags  ;Dcommon in these cars.Help with info please.

If you want, post some pics of the trim tag on the firewall and the Protect-o-Plate.  We can help you decode the information about options that way.  Or send them to me direct and I will email you back. 

There should be an assembly date and application code on the front pad of the engine block.  That should match the Protect-o-Plate.

I am not as familiar with 67s as 68s, but I believe the Saginaw 3 speed was the base transmission, so it is common.

hi kurt, thanks for your help. the pop lead me to the vin matching motor in Ohio! I'm in San Antonio! Needle found, haystack conquered!!!!  One more question, how do I find out who the original owner was? is that even possible?

Skyler, post a picture of the numbers stamped on the pad of the engine when you can.  Hopefully the engine that showed up is the original one with the original stamped numbers - and not a restamp.

In reading that section again, I noted a small error in Jerry's book, when he says the change  in the differential housing from the .3894860NF to the 3989341NF pn occurred in September'69.   The differential in my mid Sept '69 Z28 has the 341 housing assembly dated '0829', so that change occurred earlier than stated.

We continue to investigate and add data points for the change-over time from when the 860 housing ended and the 341 housing started.  There appears to be at least a small overlap.

See this thread...

I am thinking about a response.  Not sure exactly what all to say at this point.

Saw this one yesterday but did not get a picture.  Was in a 70 Camaro at one time so perches had been moved.  Was either in a 70 Nova or 69 Camaro originally from what I could tell.
Casting number  3894860
Casting date      F 24 9
Stamped code   C BM 0807G1

223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Astro Ventilation Window Markings on: September 13, 2013, 07:18:55 PM
However there was 124378L300103, Palomino white with a black bench seat, Black V top, with legit Astro windows.
That would have been correct.  The Astro Ventilation windows were early in the 1968 model year.

Not that I know of, but if you have some specific bolts you have questions on, go ahead and post them and someone should be able to help.
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 12:25:30 PM

Somewhere in the early 70s (I think 1972) Holley carbs went from a 3 digit date to a 4 digit date.  For a 4 digit date code, the first 3 characters represented the Julian date (1 through 366) and the last character represented the year of the decade.

3 digit date codes were prior to about 1972, and I believe the digits were for year, month, week.
