Restoration / Re: Found a direct replacement for the door glass roller

The vendor will likely quadruple their price if they realize they fit early Camaros too...  :)

.. SO I just ordered the parts on the 'take a chance' principle!   (didn't want to take the door apart to check first).. :)

Is that item unique to '67 models? or is the same part used on '68's and '69's??

Dave Beem and I pulled a 63 Z06 Big Brake Fuelie out of Colorado back in 2016.
The master the finned large brakes with the 1-3/16 wheel cylinders

AND ...  the cooling vents with screens cut into the backing plates... factory not custom~     I believe that was only done on '62 and 63 Corvettes (wtih the big brakes)~

Al Knoch produces convertible tops for Corvettes (predominantly) but also for early Camaros..

Their corvette convertible tops are first rate...

A loud banging likely results from something 'large/heavy' shifting positions when braking...  Check every large item underneath the front of your car for loosened bolts, etc...

Bad angle and lighting on the pic but from what I see, seems OK.

I agree with william on how common they are.  Seems to me (general impression, not based on solid numbers) that mis-stamps were just a bit more common in 69.   

My understanding of William's post was that mis stamps are UNCOMMON; I agree with him!

If there are more '69's with mis-stamps, it's likely purely a function of the VOLUME;  Many more '69 Camaros built than the previous years for a multitude of reasons!

Some people 'fake' stamps purely to change the color or options for their car!   and that goes way beyond Camaros and Z28s...

The application stamping is likely a factory stamping, but the deck appears to have been milled down to where there's not much left of the stamping...

not bad, but it appears to be 'too thick' to me.. ie.  much thicker than original '69 emblems.  I'd suggest checking the thickness of your original 350 emblem, and modifying your design to be the same...

Check the dates and the foundry marks to match your engine...

I can only speak for my own... When I bought my car and rebuilt the engine in 1976, the 480' was sloppy, needed shimming at the very least, and I had a perfect Mallory Rev Pol in hand, so I installed the revpol and used a Judson electronic magneto for the coil- that worked great, would rev to 8G+ without a miss...  Car was parked in 1980, and then around 2010 I found the '480' where I'd left it... in the shelves behind my work bench!  :)     Probably everyone isn't the hoarder that i am?

Nor do many people keep their cars as long as I do... :)

The slideshow on the website has chassis pics, no LH tailpipe adapter. About that pad stamp...

..."About that pad stamp..."    ..   Appears someone did a great job (last week?) doing those stamps eh?   :)

I don't know for certain that's why the change was made. Not mentioned in any Chevrolet service bulletin. But it makes sense. Considering the variables involved-air cleaner stamping, carb gasket thickness, element height, depth of insertion of the vent tubes, it may have been possible. Appears to have been intermittently phased in. I know of a Sept '69 Z/28 with a revised base and an October '69 Z/28 with a flat base.

The 90 vent tube may have never changed in production. It was only a problem on Holley DP carbs. ZL1s were supposed to be built with the 850 DP but most were not.

My original 18September69 Z28 also has a flat base...   incidentally, I have another original flat base a/c I acquired from a friend in the late '70's (from a '69 Z28 - although I gave another friend the original extension back then - now replaced with a repro extension) which I have no plans for if anyone can use it.
