1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Time to buy a real deal ZL-1! on: April 16, 2015, 09:17:57 AM
....I've dug a bit more and found three more vintage photos of COPO 9561 cars. Two have the decal, one does not. As for the statement The ones I've seen doesn't have the sticker on the lid.... the only vintage photo you could have seen is the one I mentioned. Only two ZL1s were photographed in the day; the #3 ZL1 is the other but the air cleaner lid is not present in the photos. Id like to see photos of the other 98% before concluding none of them had the label. Ill bet every restored 69 Z/28 has a 302 label on the air cleaner but the January 69 Hot Rod feature of an 09D LA Z/28 shows the factory did forget on occasion. Could they have just forgotten on some COPOs?

So what did I do when putting the finishing touches on ZL1 #4 27 years ago? No 427 label. But I have no problem with ZL1 #6 having the label. It is entirely possible it was built that way.


Great work, William, I really appreciate it!
Do you have the pics to show us or aren't they digital maybe?
I just found a pic with the sticker! The two I've seen so far is this, are they authentic you think?






Well spoken there, X33RS, I think you have a point! Smiley

Interesting discussion this....I still think its a great lookin car, but that's me..  Kiss

If its just the seal and decal that you guys pick on this car, its almost perfect, huh?  Grin

Regarding the sticker it would be interesting to see some old pics on the engine from the original ZL-1, do such pics exist? The ones I've seen doesn't have the sticker on the lid....

I also notice that the hood stripe, decal, is missing but I have another quest regarding the DX-1....didn't the six bangers have the cui emblem on the front fender and therefore it should be a gap fore it on the stripe as it is on say a 350 car?
Nobody that have an answer to my quest? Wink

Hakan, I believe the 250 six cylinder got the engine size fender emblems, nothing for the 230.

Thanx for answering Paul, didn't know there were two different sex bangers either! Wink

Hi Brian and welcome to this extremely useful site!  Smiley

I agree with a couple of guys above regarding the hub caps and condition, remember that a car is only original once!  Wink
A new set of ww tires and the original hub caps and you really have a head turner as it is!

Thanx Gary,
Probably one of few things that's correct in my engine compartment!  Grin

...  And of course the upside down cowl seal, tsk.

That is one of my big 'irks' also, Kevin..   Seems half the cars I see at car shows (even the nationals) has their cowl seal upside down (and inside out).   TIP:   When you purchase a new/repro cowl seal, it seems it is turned inside out (and most just install it that way)..    If you will first unroll it (turn it opposite), the little sealing lip will lip around the metal plate on top of the air cleaner, and the rubber will turn 'OUT' as it's supposed to...  Smiley   I can't help myself from attempting to correct the owners when I see this..  some appreciate it, and some don't..  Smiley  and the latter ones I let go on in their ignorance...
I had the same issuses when i mounted my seal but i hope this is the right way?

Looks fine to me. In Illinois, personalized plates are a mix of letters and numbers. It's the current plate design that's been used for a number of years now. On the IL Secretary of State site you can plug in what you want to find out if it's available.
Nice info, thanx! So that means that this is an official plate then?

Hakan, you'd be shot on sight then sent back to Sweden..... Grin  Seriously, years ago I tried getting a " Vanity plate" that said "Slick 69" ( Hey I have a black shiny 69 camaro ) the state of Washington was not too impressed to say the least, they didn't say "NO" they said "HELL NO"!! you see everyone that wants a personalize plate (the State calls them Vanity Plates) must send them to Olympia for approval. One way to get around Olympia is to find a original old Washington plate that's in good shape, take it to the local licensing agent and you can have a plate with 69 on it and get a permanent registration.   Cool Geez.... I hope no one from Olympia reads CRG's posts Undecided
Ha, ha, nice story, I'm glad I'm still in Sweden then! Smiley

Merry X-mas to y'all!

I got this "302" plate for my '69 Z 15 years ago - couldn't believe it was still available without the Mustang guys grabbing it.  Smiley
69 396 was still available. That is until recently ;-) I was pretty surprised. Especially in Michigan.
...I wonder what they would say about my plate....? But is this really an a official personal plate from Illinois as the seller told me, I'm sceptical! Wink

Sad, it's a real stunner but all the misstakes when you put so much effort in gettin a nice looker make me suspicious...is it a real Z from the beginning??
The stripes, the interior error, under the hood....all that makes me wonder....and where it the trim tag?  Huh
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: September 18, 2014, 01:33:27 AM
I bought this silver grill at a swap meet a while ago and pretty sure the garnet red paint is the factory overspray.


For me, that looks the opposite! The silver is the over spray color....!
