If the owner tells us his car has original drivetrain and is missing the original 12 bolt rear end..... then it's not original drivetrain car. The rear end is part of the drivetrain right?

You are right. I forgot about the statement about the rear end being replaced. I wonder if the rear gear is just replaced or if the entire rear end was replaced? If I had time I would go check this car out, but just a little too far and not a serious buyer.

Auction was ended due to an error in the listing.
Gary and I agree, both being the owner of several old cars it is hard to find one that APPEARS to not had been abused over the years regardless of a few repaints and quarter panel replacement. With the original drivetrain still intact is a HUGE (if it is in fact) plus for a Z28 since when new Chevrolet bragged how these were high winders. If someone could pick this car up in the high $30's to low $40's (thousands) seems like a good price for someone to have fun given the recent run up in price.

I did not say the car is without flaws just seems to be a nice example. Driveline seems to be original....like to hear people weigh in on the block stamp. I personally like that no one added a console and gauges. I think a center fuel gauge is cool. I agree too bad someone added the brightwork. Not perfect but for $40K could make a good car if the body is not a mess.
Not my car and I have no connection just wanted to share

I have used James' Oxyclean method on three different sets of seat belts with great success. I did not remove the plastic covers and dried the buckles with compressed air. They look awesome when done. You would not believe how dirty the water gets from this process. It is black.

You can pick up Jerry McNeish's book Distinctive 69 Z28 and SS. In the back there is a parts list with the correct finishes listed. Also First Gen Addict on this site is working on a 69 X66 car that is very original. He may be able to help you with colors.

If anyone is interested in the above engine, the guy who I bought an 837 alternator from has one freshly built. I have told him to send me pics of the stamp and price. If anyone is interested PM me and I will put you in touch with him.

The part to tweak is the cross bar that the rear of actuator attaches to, right?

As Charley suggested, in the past I've tweeked the bracket to get the door to close the last 1/4 inch.
Before I took the car apart to paint it both doors shut perfectly. I hate to tweak an original part to make the door fit....at this point anyway. But may end up doing just that.

I have adjusted every possible adjustment on the driver's side headlight door and the door still does not close up snug like the passenger side. I have to assume the shaft in the accuator too long. I am going to get another and put it in to see if this is better.

jacmac referred you to the  "Chassis Service Manual, look at 12-3 ,-12-4."..  not the AIM...

Thank you!!! Would be helpful if I paid attention to the help.

Thanks Jacmac

12-4  Fig. 3 "Headlamp Panel Adjustment"
Apparently we are looking at different reference materials. My AIM is setup UPC 12 with subsections A,B,C,D and then several sheets per section. I.e. sheet 12 B4. I can't find anything 12-4 figure 3. Thanks for the effort
