General Discussion / Re: Emission Stickers 69 Camaro
« on: Today at 05:36:36 AM »
To answer the OP's questions (or try to):

1)  Yes 1969 Camaros DID leave the factory with an emissions sticker

This link    http://www.camaros.org/emissions.shtml     will answer your question re smog pumps (depends on the engine and transmission combination!)..

2)Yes, 1969 Camaros did come with an emissions sticker placed on top of the radiator support..

The DZ engine application stamp looks like a HS kid did it....  NOT factory!

What a great list of cars to chose from. Man, several 4:56 geared cars. So cool

You could have bought all six Z/28's then for just under $25K ...  tax, title, and tags out the door   8)

...but... at that time, 25K was more than 2 years pay for the typical middle class worker!  :)

Several have used the dove gray...

The 700R4 is LONGER and much heavier than a Power glide, but the 200R4 is the same!  and provides for the same (or better) OD capability, lighter weight, less internal loss, and is more than sufficiently strong for your 350 ci crate engine.

...    Gen 2 Camaro came out as a 1970 1/2 model mid year, Early because of management defection to Ford

Charles

I'd be interested to hear your story behind your statement that 'management defection to ford' affected the timing of that transition???

ACTUALLY Charles...  :) ...    Even though the 1969 Camaro model year was longer than usual, ALL of the 1969-appearing Camaros produced from 9-68 thru 12-69 were ALL 1969 models!~  :)

If your original question was :  How many calendar years were the 1st gen Camaros produced, the answer would have been 4 calendar years:   1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969!  :)  but the number of different models was only 3.

The ad claims it is "...Impeccability restored."

Perhaps he really meant 'peccadillo restored'...?   :)

Someone did the same thing to my 68 BITD.  4 leaf with the 5 added.  I was told it was an old drag racer trick.  Not sure how legit that really is. 

It should stiffen the rear suspension up a bit...   but your traction bars might do as well or better at putting the power to the pavement?  :)

:)   ...you're not sure how 'legit' it is ...from what perspective???  :)



The racing theory.

General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro built in 66 titled 1966
« on: February 15, 2019, 02:24:24 PM »
Local and state authorities titling/registering vehicles make all sorts of mistakes!  So there's no telling what the TITLE says, but if he has a GM Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO or MCO) which describes the car as a 1966 Camaro, THAT would be a bit unusual...  :)   (That document is where states are supposed to get the automobile information for new cars)

LOL   ...   the Thanks you get for trying to be helpful!~     

...and you are totally screwing up the 'neat story' they'd made up to tell about that car..  with feasible deniability from all parties. (Any errors are due to the ORIGINAL owner!).. :)

Calling it brown would be closer than calling it silver....   awful (but impeccability restored per the ad)  and awesome and excellent!  :)

Thanks Phillip! 

Wow..   you covered a LOT of material in very short order!   Wish I'd been there to hear it.. :)

Did you give a test afterwards? :)

That certificate 'cover sheet' (as we've discussed here many times) says *nothing* about discrepancies found, original parts on the car (IF ANY), or condition of the car!   I suspect that is what the poster was saying.   

The page posted (the certificate/cover page) actually only says that the owner paid Jerry to check their Camaro and provides the VIN.  Without the accompanying *details* on the car, the 'certificate' itself is just a 'brag sheet' among people who don't know the details!
