1262  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: wheel trim rings on: January 18, 2014, 07:45:27 AM
my trim rings are original as well with the fingers all the way around.
Thought the originals were the 4-clip design, and dealers were later issued with the all-round design to swap over during service, after the first style started falling off everywhere? Or did this change occur by mid-production?
On the original question, I put several laters of clear around the wheel rim, to limit the inevitable scratches from getting through to the argent silver, or even the primer.
It's my impression/understanding also that the 4-clip design were the original ones.   Monte Carlo trim rings in the mid 70's (which looked alike/similar) use the fingers all the way around...

My car also had a 'T' down below the trim plate, but it wasn't visible until I removed the brake booster.   In addition, there is the standard 'PTB' over to the right of the trim tab which are more visible.   I think we referred to the 'T' below the trim plate as the 'second T'...  Is yours the same?    and was it your intention to post that ALL Camaros have that second T under the trim plate?
1264  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 17, 2014, 11:44:00 PM
yes

70s408936

That further confirms the 350/300 engine as being from the 1970 Corvette having VIN partial of 70S408936.
1265  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This is a nice original 69 Z28 on: January 17, 2014, 11:42:01 PM
.This one even has an extra "T". Hasn't anybody ever talked to a former inspector in the last 44 years?
 .... Danny
I'm sorry...coming in late...which T would be the extra one?  Thanks.

The second one....     *wink*...
1266  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: January 17, 2014, 11:40:12 PM
I see no evidence that my original seats in my late '69 production car ever had them.. ie. no holes in the seat covering for the pivot pin.   Were these cables only used in cars that had no headrest perhaps?   This would explain the rarity of these cables...
1267  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: wheel trim rings on: January 17, 2014, 10:13:47 PM
just had a set of original rims sandblasted and painted for my 69 z 04D.  Does anyone have any suggestions on installing the trim rings and center caps without cutting up the paint?  my trim rings are original as well with the fingers all the way around.  I thought maybe vaseline might help?

Give the paint lots of time to cure before you install the trims, but I suspect they ARE going to scratch up the paint some, but you won't see it until you remove the trims.. Smiley
1268  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 17, 2014, 10:11:09 PM
You're getting a little closer to knowing exactly what you have...  Smiley    VIN.... L346855    is a July '68 production car..

C130 if It makes any sense     (13 March 1970 cast engine block, assembled 24 March 1970; installed originally in a '70 Corvette with 350ci/300hp/4sp)
the Rear axle ID is BU0925G2 E       (3.73:1 Posi 12 bolt - could be from a '68 or 69 Camaro.. assembled 25 Sept)
4-speed muncie ID P0510

Does the engine pad have a VIN on it?   mmSnnnnnnn   or ??
1269  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Late 69 z28 build date? on: January 17, 2014, 02:20:10 PM
Hello, I am offered a 69 Camaro, VIN 9N682363 and NOR148440(body number) with build date 10E. Its an X77 D80 car. Engine stampings are V0923DZ

Looking thru the CRG database for the VIN numbers ending each 69 month, I would like to see a build date for september and not october. The trim tag looks never to be removed. I am also puzzled over the low body number since it is a very late 69 build.
Do you guys see a difference of 4-5 weeks between engine build and car Assembly as normal?
Best regards Joern,
joern.amundsen@online.no

Hello Joern,
Something is off, and it confuses me also.    Based on your serial number, your car would have been built a week or two into September 1969.    The body numbers from 1 August '69 onward seem low because the body numbers were *reset* to 100001 at that point.   Your body number is actually 20,000 higher/later than my car (which has an 09C build week), which seems strange as well, but we've also been told that a LOT of body numbers were generated (towards the tail end of 1969?) that cars were never built for, so this *might* be explained?  

Your engine build date is appropriate for a 10E build week car. but your car serial number corresponds to a 09A or 09B build week.   I'm not aware of anything that might explain that difference   ....... possibly the 'engine and data plate' came originally on one car, but the VIN doesn't match (ie. from a different car?).  Maybe one of the CRG guys knows of something unusual which might explain?
Note:  I just checked the body numbers for early production, and a 148440 body number corresponds pretty well to an Oct/Nov 1968 body, for which an 0923 built engine *might* still be viable for?  What is the block casting number and cast date on the back of the engine block?   There would still be a major issue between the body build/engine build and 'final car production for VIN', to cause a Nov '68 to Sep'69 delay in completion of a car (after the engine is installed)Huh?   Is that possible at all??

Thanks Darrell for the info,

I'm going to try to go up tomorrow morning, but I'll also try to come by in 2 weeks and check with you too.. Smiley
1271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Upcoming shows and swap meets in Nashville? on: January 17, 2014, 09:57:55 AM
Looking for some help from the Nashville area guys to tell us which of the following shows is the best one to attend for those of us outside of Nashville?

JAN 18-19 Nashville, TN Nashville Auto Fest    (this weekend - what day is best?  is there a swap meet?)

FEB 2nd Nashville, TN Stone’s River Region     (Is this one more swap meet or car show or ??)
1272  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 16, 2014, 11:01:27 AM
of course..  Smiley
1273  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 16, 2014, 08:30:00 AM
They are basically the same.  Main differences are the ci and external (400) vs internal (350) balancing.

010 casting was only used for the 350ci.  Great block to build on.

Darrell...  I can't believe you left out the '69 Z28 302 from 'engines using the 010 block'...    *G*
1274  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 15, 2014, 09:00:17 AM
That is the block casting number.  The casting date is on the opposite side of the engine from the '010' number.. at the back.   Should be 3 or 4 digits..
1275  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info about my 68 camaro on: January 14, 2014, 10:43:57 PM
One thing the '68 Camaro had that the '69 didn't....  was 'Corvette Bronze' paint color..  Smiley  which I love...
