The bracket labeled 'AAC' appears correct, matches what is on my car....

I remember the blue maxi, as I have that magazine somewhere in my collection, but I don't recall the 'green meanie'..  Do you have any color photos?  Smiley

Maybe we can put a 'CRG' sign around our neck..     Smiley

Weren't '67 Pace Cars all painted the turquoise color?   Is it possible that this is one of them, or was there a special code as well?

Like any 'new' car that comes out, being the *first one* to have one loses it's significance once many are on the road.   THE MOST significant new unit which never loses it's significance is the SNxxx0001.. ie. the 'lowest sn' built for sale to the public. sometimes it's snxxx001 and sometimes it's not.   The first C5 Corvette built which was placed into public hands was Snxxx007, which was given to the NCM, and auctioned off for about a year to see who won it!
1311  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Decode a 1969 protecto plate ... Having difficulty on: September 15, 2013, 12:37:09 PM
from the mirrored P-t-P:
From Protectoplate info:
Sold to Mrs A.W. Kirby on 5 June 1969

VIN:  124679N624455  69 Camaro, 8cyl Convertible, Norwood (OH) assembly  seq num 624455. likely built on Wednesday, 2 April, 1969.
 
C   = Carter Carburetor

4    =  build month  (April '69)

133  = option codes

Engine code  T0313HB which decodes to a 350ci / 300 hp engine build in Tonawanda on March 13th.   Your engine had a 4 bbl carb    and typically had a Turbohydramatic behind it.
Trans code:  Y9A31  =   Turbo350, built on  January 31, 1969.
Rear end code:  BL 0117 G   (3.07:1, 12 bolt, non posi assembled Jan 17th)..  If the code is BI ... it's a 2.73.
1312  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 15, 2013, 11:25:46 AM
Yes, mine was a single piece of metal, stamped out, and has all the typical deformations from such an operation, but the 'seam' on the bottom of yours I thought was a joint?  a welded joint?   If not, then what is it?
1313  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Decode a 1969 protecto plate ... Having difficulty on: September 14, 2013, 10:31:00 PM
I think you misinterpreted at least one of the numerals, and possibly more.  Best way to 'mirror' is to take a photo and then mirror the resulting image.. should allow you to read it correctly.    The PP provides your VIN number, and the stampings on your engine, trans, and rear end ( believe) at least..
1314  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 14, 2013, 10:27:16 PM
Thanks Steve,  That should give everyone a good comparison between 'flat bottom' and 'seamed bottom'.
Question:  is the seam on yours welded all the way around?  or ?
1315  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay in DB ? on: September 13, 2013, 11:30:10 PM
Yes, I thought it was blue as well...  it may be mostly the lights, but it does look like someone added a little blue to the silver mix.  *G*.. OR maybe the clear coat helps with that too?
and Thanks re the corvette.   I've only had that one 23 years... I repainted it lacquer about 16 yrs ago..
1316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: AMK bolt label deciphering on: September 13, 2013, 02:47:24 PM
for the '68 manual, UPC 11-13  sheet A5 is on page 137, and UPC 11-13, sheet B5 is on pg 144 (pages hand numbered in my AIM copy)..  also in the downloadable one..
1317  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO'S LEFT ON THE ROAD on: September 13, 2013, 12:34:56 PM
Was he looking for you?  Were you hiding behind the closed garage door?  *G*
1318  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Timing Cover date codes on: September 13, 2013, 12:34:20 PM
I have one that is stamped '1   67' ..   which is obviously NOT Julian date (unless they worked on New years day?) *G*  but it *might* be for the first week of Jan...
1319  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 13, 2013, 12:18:03 PM
Steve,

Can you take a photo of the full bottom from the bottom?  As a comparison to the flat bottom?
PS.  What did you mean by '4 spot' flame arrester?   first time I've heard that term....
1320  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay in DB ? on: September 13, 2013, 10:20:11 AM
Obviously, the paint on that car is 'way over restored', and gorgeous, although not 'factory correct'..   but when I viewed the photos, the 'color' seemed 'blue' to me, as opposed to silver..   Note: my display is calibrated so that displayed colors are accurate typically.  That 'blueness' may have been in their lighting or their camera, but each time I look at it, it seem like a 'light blue tinted' silver.  (and I have a Cortez Silver '69 Corvette for comparison..)..  that car was photographed under fluorescent lights, which can tint towards the blue, so I've included one outside, and one inside of my car..
