No Trim tag code for front guards, as Fisher wouldn't have installed them and didn't have to do anything different related to the body tub ti install them.  GM installed everything forward of the firewall on their side of the plant.

The 5B is for the V32 Large rear bumper gaurd, the 5O is for seat belt delete, this one is an overseas only option.  The -31B is an FSO number, basically a special order number that required corporate approval, had non standard parts (COPO) or was part of a fleet order.  It was part of the 31st FSO order for that year.  The B may indicate the car was part of a second order of FSO 31, or it may be the second car (B car) of a single order.

That version of the 68 stripe was never installed on a Camaro, it was discontinued before it went into production and replaced with the D90 stripe.  All of the 68 d90 hood/side stripes ended a few inches forward of the back edge of the door.  The entire section on the valance panel and the section infront of the wheel wells were painted on, the rear section behind the wheelwell, and on the doors were tape.

How long has that engine been running since it was done being assembled?  Looks like there is some kind of heat discoloration just below the current end of the pushrod.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Multiplex on: April 16, 2014, 06:51:22 PM
Not in 67.

No multiplex radios in 67 Camaros from the factory.  8 track only went on the floor on top of the transmission hump or on the front of the console facing backwards, and they were stereo using 4 speakers mounted in the corners.  Radio was only mono.

Dealers would assemble the parts and stick multiplex units from other car models where ever they could, mostly under the passenger side dash between the glove box and the center of the dash.  There.s no instruction for a dealer installing a non factory option, they just figured it out.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need the experts help with stamp pad on: April 15, 2014, 09:20:18 PM
did you extrapolate that based on stamp date?

Stamp date would make that an 05A built car, and the VIN would be after 19N64XXXX.  Missing number is probably the last digit.

Thats the 2001 Mallett Hammer.  It will probably buff right out, no problem.

Thats one of Mark Young's cars.  He has had some nice original cars, but he has also peddled some "less than authentic" vehicles over the past 15 or 20 years, including an 06A 67 small block RS only Canadian pace car that suddenly became a "matching numbers"big block after he bought it.  If he's involved you had better have the car gone over with a fine tooth comb, by someone who knows them inside and out.  Not saying this car wasn't originally a Z28, but it isn't sporting an original engine in that ad.

Yes the DZ stamp is a restamp, its on the wrong side of the engine pad for starters, POP's don't normally age in spots like this one.  Just saying.

You might be good, my polished tailpipes have a longer heavy wall section then yours  They go all the way up to where it turns to go into the mufflers, and mine (I have one of the aftermarket chambered sets) don't fit into those rear hangers at all.  They had to be rebent to even come close to fitting around the pipe.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stainless Chambered exhaust on: April 01, 2014, 10:40:52 AM
If your pipes have the aftermarket chromed tips with the heavy wall polished section, those hangers won't fit around them.  Chambered exhuast never had polished tips (polished tips started the same week the chambered system was discontinued), so they are sized for the stock thinwall tailipipe diameter.

Need a password and login to get to those pictures.

Look up under the dash just to the drivers side of the radio, see if there is a finned heat sink mounted to the dash support bar, that's the console mounted 8 tracks ampliphier heat sink.  Theres a bunch of wires associated with a console mounted 8 track, probably at least 10 individual conductors.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: AM/FM Radio's and Tape players on: March 31, 2014, 05:48:08 AM
Does it have a console?  If so there should be a big hole in the console door, and inside the storage compartment where the wires to the 8 track came thru.  If not there should be some holes in the bottom of the passenger side dash where the T-400 model 8 track mounted.  Does the car have a 3 piece sectional AM only antenna mast or a solid one piece AM/FM mast?

There were only about 6000 8 tracks installed in 69 Camaros, chances of finding one at all is pretty slim (for the console mounted ones), chances of finding a dated one will be all but impossible. 
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: White paint on 68 cowl tag on: March 30, 2014, 04:35:48 PM
The tag had to be sprayed after the firewall was blacked out, which was well along Fishers side of the assembly process.  What was left at that point that would be related to an option specified on the cowl tag that the line workers need to know about?  Something GM did as it came over from Fisher?  Had to be done somewhere between Fisher Blackout of the firewall, and GM installing the wiper motor, and brake booster on the firewall, as those pieces never have overspray on them on original cars.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: AM/FM Radio's and Tape players on: March 30, 2014, 06:45:02 AM
Since your car had a dash speaker it would have originally had a Mono AM or AM/FM radio.  If the other four speakers are original they would have been connected to an 8 track unit.  If you had a blue light AM/FM you wouldn't have the dash speaker, there would just have been a black piece of cardboard taped to the bottom of the dash panel.

Well theres no CK engine suffix for a chevy engine, could be a CR which is a 1958 Corvette 283, or maybe it is an OK.
