Attached are a few photos from my '69 Z28.. original location.  I took these for you with a tape to show you as closely as I could to where it goes.
*(I can't tell  you that all models/yrs were the same because I don't know)..

Here is another 'remanufactured 302' from the same locale (Angola IN).. although a different 'seller' identified.
I'm including a sample photo showing the bottom end with 'PINK' rods..  Smiley

Seems like these ads are setup to take advantage of 'less than fully knowledgable buyers'....

1309  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original tires on: November 06, 2013, 10:14:54 PM
that reads only for 14 inch Polyglas tires (F70/14 to replace E78-14)  $88.60?  and to replace F70/14 on SS cars $26.25?  Did the non-SS cars also get a wheel upgrade to 7" for that option to justify the higher price?   Whereas the SS already had the 7" wide tire so the price was only for the tire upgrade?

No mention of 15" wheel cars ??

Didn't the COPO already have F70/14 tires on 7" wide rims?    so why the higher price?  (because they could?) *G*

Correct VIN for future searches:  124379N651234

June 1969 car

Probably the 2nd production day in June....
1311  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help ! 69 without a protectoplate on: November 05, 2013, 09:49:32 AM
...  Both tags would give pertinent information like: color, trim and date of build. The cowl tag may or may not indicate if the car was 396 equipped. This would depend on the build date starting with 2nd week of December 1968,when X codes were used for production line trim ID. Protectoplate data would give much more information regarding engine, transmission, carburetor, etc...These topics are covered thoroughly in this site elsewhere that you can look up yourself. Without those tags, very little, if anything, can be discerned about your car.
...

Clarification note:   1969 Protecto-plate information did NOT include color or interior codes.
1312  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help ! 69 without a protectoplate on: November 05, 2013, 08:26:56 AM
You should read everything you can from this link:     http://www.camaros.org/
which is a database of knowledge (practically everything you ever wanted to know about first gen Camaros, but were maybe afraid to ask?)..Smiley
One thing it will explain is decoding of your data plate (and where to find it, etc) which has information on the paint color, int etc.
If you have any specific questions from that read, or from your car, come back and ask again! Smiley

The part that stuck out to me was "The car comes in on a transport. He didnít actually drive it here. "     Sad
1314  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: welding on cast iron on: November 04, 2013, 10:45:17 PM
My head shop repaired a seat for me once using that technique...   *S*   was my first exposure to that approach.
1315  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Movie / TV Camaros on: November 04, 2013, 10:26:33 PM
I just remembered the silly 80's flick with John Cusack "Better off dead". Has a cool 67 rs that gets fixed up. Love the scene where it rolls out of the garage.
That car has a WEBSITE!

A very nice website as well....  I enjoyed going thru it, now I've gotta find the movie and watch it *S*.   Thanks for posting the link.  Smiley
1316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: new restoration endevour on: November 04, 2013, 09:28:31 AM
And, even if you decide to restore it, it would behoove you to take *hundreds* of photos of all the details, even the 'bad' parts, BEFORE you begin the restoration, to document the car prior to restoration.  you may think your car is 'bad' with the rust around the wheel wells, but compared to some of the 'restored' cars before they were restored, your car is extremely nice.. and that would make a big difference to me if I was looking for a restored Camaro!
1317  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: welding on cast iron on: November 03, 2013, 06:03:54 PM
Thanks for the note Mike,

I've seen that done (stitching)...  seems pretty remarkable... and time consuming..  Smiley
The welding would seem to be a less labor intensive approach, if it holds water..  Smiley
1318  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: new restoration endevour on: November 03, 2013, 02:09:23 PM
I have to toss in my 3 cents worth too! Smiley      Clean and Preserve the car, but don't restore... and take LOTS of photos of every detail to record the originality..
1319  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Suggestions Wanted For 1969 Camaro Custom Paint Design on: November 03, 2013, 02:05:17 PM
wow...  that's going to be a striking car when pulling into car show arenas...  Smiley
1320  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: welding on cast iron on: November 03, 2013, 02:03:42 PM
will that process work on a block that cracked from freezing?   when I moved back to North Alabama, after being in a 'non freezing' area for a few years, I drained a radiator in a car I hadn't driven, and found out later that I should have drained the block as well..   The cracks are across both the inside (the lifter galley area about half way up), and the corresponding outside of the water jacket area.   It was a 'prepped' block, and I hated to toss it, so I kept it... hoping..   Smiley
