124377L00824, The 824th camaro made that year?

Since 1967 was maiden year for Camaro, 824th Camaro EVER off the line (in Los Angeles).. Smiley     Not sure how many Norwood cars would have been made before that???

Kurt , Dealer Code 0 in zone 17 which was Hohen Chevrolet  now it is Chuck Hutton Chevrolet. Production date 5/2/1969

Did you ask that lady if it might be possible to get a copy of that photograph that was made???    Would be worth chasing it down.. Smiley

If his 302 was .30 over, it would be a 307!

Maybe..  but it wasn't ordered from the factory that way.. Smiley
A 302 bored 0.030 is close to 307 ci, but it is NOT anything close to the same as a Chevy 307~  Smiley

PS. Grizzly bears and rabbits are both brown haired animals, but one doesn't confuse the two ..Smiley      
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 camaro seat belts on: September 30, 2014, 10:21:19 PM
My 1969 camaro has seat belts most dated 19 A, one 18 A and one dated 28 A. I have an 9 A built car, I know the seat belts are dated early for my car and I don't think they were changed but do you guys think that the car could of be assembled at the factory with these belts?


Those belts probably came from one specific car; but whether that was your car or not??  Who knows?   Do you have any reason to think your car was torn down and rebuilt, or restored at some point Huh?   Why do you doubt those belts?

Welcome to CRG!   Seems you have a pretty nice project on your hands..  Smiley

Great pic....how many raised ribs? I have a reproduction from LI Corvettes and on this repro I count 7 raised ribs.

Thanks,
Mike

I ordered a couple of feet of the hose on ebay (Inline Tube), and received it today.   It has 3 raised ribs (very slight ribs), with the white stripe about 90-100 degree away from the ribs (around the hose).    I dug out my original and checked it carefully..  The original has 7 more-distinct ribs, with the white stripe within those 7 ribs.  I've got photos of both if there's interest, but I'm a bit confused by 69Zee statement that his 'assumed original' has only 3 ribs?   I'd like to see closeup photos of both the 3-rib one found by 69Zee.. AND the 7 rib one sold by LI Corvettes if possible.  LI has a good reputation in the corvette world, and based on what I found with my original '69 Z28 hose, I'm leaning to the 7 rib being the original one, UNLESS these hoses were interchangeably used throughout the year?  My car is an 09C and my 'assumed original hose was on it when I purchased the car in 1976 (long before any repros for Camaros)..

This car was assembled OOA  21Jan1969; the parts identified by date would seem to be consistent with this, although the engine is about 6 weeks prior (seems a bit early?), but has the correct VIN which seems original...

The parts you showed are correct. 

The engineering 'sketches' shown in the AIM, are not intended to be 'perfect' indications of the part, as some drawings are 'updated from year to year, etc.   That drawing was released on 29 April 1968, well before the introduction of the '69 Camaros, and possibly even before the part you question was finalized.

Mr WisemanZ...   

Using your 'estimated week of production' (ie.  09A) is not the most exact way of determining parts viability, as there are cases where the actual production can be off (in either direction) from the estimated (or planned) production due to parts availability issues etc.

I suggest you use either your NCRS supplied 'build date', or calculate the buld date from your VIN, and then you'll know the last date that is possible for parts supplied to your engine (minus appropriate times for delivery from suppliers, installation, etc, which vary by part)...

are you asking Steve ? or me?  for the block casting date?  

My engine block was cast on 26 August, and assembled on the 27th.  Car was finished on 18Sept.   most of the parts in my car are late August, but there are a few that are 2-3 months earlier....

To extract the image from ebay, just zoom in (double click?).. then right click and 'save image' to your computer... where you can then post to here...

Below are photos of the ebay alternator (extracted from the ebay photo), and my original alternator stamps...  same PN and same date.   It looks OK to me ?

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1100837 alternator on: September 27, 2014, 04:29:30 PM
My 09C Z28, built 18Sep1969, has the same 9H25 date on it's original alternator..
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Standard Steel Wheel Color on: September 26, 2014, 12:48:06 PM
IMO....   

your left one pictured appears to be an aged original paint example.  The one on the right appears to be a 'typical' silver repainted rallye wheel; I'm not saying that I think 'typical silver' is correct, but finding the correct hued original argent is so difficult, that is what most people resort to.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Bolt for front wheel fender mouldings on: September 25, 2014, 11:29:17 PM
Aren't the bolts you are looking for the *same* bolts that hold the inner fender  to the edge of the fender's wheel opening?  ie...   no extra bolts needed?

You might want to know what lies on that sticker before you start cleaning off the paint..   Below is a link from a year or so ago, where we collected information from a number of Camaros on this board and tabulated the data..
