Not sure what you are thinking of, but no. Smiley
I was thinking of all the materials you got here to decode cowl tags from cars built in Norwood etc!

Anyhow here are some pics and a little more information regarding this specific car.

It has a tiltable steering wheel, PS, PB and front disc brakes. It was originally white!
Thatīs  all I know for the moment!
Are the crome parts on top of the doors and back original on 68:s?? The hood and the wheels are not original I guess!?








I can send you a pm with a pic of the cowl tag if you want, donīt want it public!

Thanks!
I'd be curious what factory options he sees on the car, assuming it's somewhat original and not a drag car. Smiley

OK, I will check that!
..so you donīt have lika e "decoding key" for this Swiss cars then?
184  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Decoding 68 Camaro built in Switzerland?? on: November 29, 2008, 02:47:24 PM
Trim is interior trim - black I believe.
Chassis # is the VIN. It should be the # on the title.

I don't think Suisse made as many 68's, which is why they are uncommon.

If there's a problem getting the tag pic (no hurry), the Chassis # would be helpful to me.

Thanks!

The last figs are like:
 
CHASSIS S9-685078

Here are mine but I think this was XA and they are 14x6 standard wheels for disc brakes.
Is it the center apperence you donīt think are right or ....?

188  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How to adjust/remount the front bumper on a 69? on: November 06, 2008, 02:51:16 AM
OK Iīve have to look there one more time then!  Wink
189  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tall front bumper guards?! on: November 06, 2008, 02:44:57 AM
Those holes were factory-drilled for the lower attachment of the RPO V31 Front Bumper Guards; if V31 wasn't ordered, there were no holes. G31 was Special Rear Springs and the tall rear bumper guards with the rubber inserts, which was included in the Z/28 package.
Thanx for quick answer John!!
...but I could be possible that a X44 had this option you think?? ...or is it more likely they have been mounted as an after market option??

You put a box end wrench inside the subframe and tighten bolt head with a socket on the outside.
..Iīm not following you here...??
You mean you donīt supposed to adjust it inside the bumper??
191  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How to adjust/remount the front bumper on a 69? on: November 05, 2008, 05:07:36 AM
The adjustment slots for the front bumper are located where the large mount bolts into the subframe.  You should have 2 people to adjust it and do one side at a time loosely.  Protect the edge of the grill incase bumper slips down.
I understand that but isnīt it very hard to get a vrench in there for tightening the nut??
192  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Tall front bumper guards?! on: November 05, 2008, 05:06:01 AM
How can I know for sure that my 69 X44 came with large front bumper guards??
Cause Iīve been wondering about two mysterious holes that I thought every 69 has in the front sand plate, but now I guess theese are for mounting the large guards?!

How can you se that theese holes are drilled from factory or home made??



What else were includeed in the option G31??
193  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / How to adjust/remount the front bumper on a 69? on: November 02, 2008, 05:52:14 AM
Iīve just taken the front bumper off while Iīm painting the grill and I saw that the bumper wasnīt in line with the front.
Is there some instruction out there in how to remount the bumper the easiest way so itīs easy to adjust it without taking it down each time??  Huh
194  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: October 23, 2008, 07:00:05 AM
There were 4 headlamp bezels:

all silver no chrome trim [non-style trim cars]
all silver w/chrome trim [style trim cars]
all black no chrome trim [non-style trim SS cars]
all black w/chrome trim [style trim SS cars]

Where did you find this table??   Huh

i almost never seen a 69 Camaro with all black headlamp bezel!!   Shocked
