Hey Vince, I seen that also. It actually looks like the bottom of another E to me. But you are right, it could be a baby C. I can tell you it doesn't have the bottom drain plug, so I think it's an M-20? I will post the other trans pic's. I am hoping all of you experts chime in and keep chiming in to tell me the stamps, and numbers look good. I spent a lot of time collecting data.... Danny

1968 Muncies that have that little 'c' after the code doesn't mean they are an M22... It's probably an M20... as you said.

Danny, you're doing a great job of documenting the stampings, codes, and numbers for your car..  I suggest you make a digital document (and preserve it) for all the data you are collecting.   That will go great with the car...  Smiley

Danny...   super nice find..  on both..  Smiley

and I like the car.. just do what maintenance you need to do, keep as much of the original parts as possible... and PRESERVE the body (ie. stop the rust and prevent it's growing).. Smiley...  scrub, clean, treat.. touch up..  whatever you need to do to prevent it's getting worse.. and preserve as much of the original paint as possible .. as long as possible.  Smiley

The pressure relief caps were a better design than the factory cap.... Smiley

20  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ stamp..opinions on: July 15, 2014, 08:40:23 PM
The stamp doesn't look right to me.  The roman I was used for the number 1 in most stamps I have seen.  The characters are a little ascew or at least look that way in the picture.

I agree with Jaybee...... regarding the V out of line with the other characters... and the DZ is obscure...  you either need better pix, of all the relevant stampings, OR you shouldn't waste your time...

Have you removed it and checked it?  Cleaned and tested it on the bench?
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: July 12, 2014, 10:12:38 PM
The current zone office for North Alabama dealers is in Mississippi (Jackson or Meridian?) ..  but back in the late '60's and early '70's it was in Birmingham.  Since then it moved to Atlanta, and then to Dallas area, but now is in MS...

The 'zone office' code seems to represent the distribution center servicing the dealer for spare parts (and perhaps other things)...

You did good..  even told him how to check bdy nbr to verify which year...  Smiley
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Trim Tag D80 question on: July 12, 2014, 08:43:07 AM
Bentley, I wasn't clear on your original posted question/statement..   

Did you mean that your 11D car had the D80 spoiler and the D80 code on the cowl tag when you purchased it, OR that it had the spoiler only?   
The CRG info states...  under the 1969 Norwood Camaro cowl tag data section...

" Additional 1969 Norwood Fisher codes that could be combined with the X-codes include:
   D80 - signifies the car was equipped with D80 spoilers, but the code was not always used."

Kurt,

Thanks for putting those threads back in and for *improving* some of the wording... Smiley 
.. maybe you can give Bullitt an opportunity to 'reword' some of his original post(s) - eliminate use of the word 'ethics' from the title and text and perhaps improve some of HIS OWN wording - now that he's had a week to think about things...?   Smiley

(I'll be away this week for the CNA convention, but I wanted to Thank You first for trying to cool down some of the heat, and to Thank Ed Bertrand publicly for all his contributions and help in the past..... Smiley

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Frt Bumper Stamp on: July 05, 2014, 01:17:03 PM
While helping a friend several years ago with touching up 7K mile original '68 SS, I discovered that his original rear bumper was stamped with a production date - April 1968, large font. May build car if I remember, featured in at least one of the Camaro books (Hooper's, I believe). Car was phenomenally original - unfortunately, I did not take any pics while the car was stored at my house (prior to cell phone cameras). You'll have to take my observations as proof, but it was there.

The rest of the story - the owner didn't like the original chrome-over-nickel patina on the factory bumpers, spent a lot of money and had them rechromed - his choice, not mine. He also had the 100% original paint touched up for some flaws.

You're only a survivor one time -

Regards -

Steve,  I'm guessing that stamp you noted was an 'ink stamp', not stamped into the steel as the OP showed...?

That's the best article on Mark Donahue that I've read, in helping to understand the man his background and goals...

X4....   Smiley

You can strip off the cloth/rotten parts, but keep the metal parts of the seats; and that will give you a chance to clean and paint those springs/seat frames so they don't rust any more..  you'll be surprised how good that stuff will look once you do that.   Your upholsterer will thank you for it..

30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Happy Birthday 69Z28 on: July 02, 2014, 09:49:47 PM
Well..  (should I be ashamed to admit this?)...  while I was in Frederick for the Camaro Nationals... One of the guy's wives mentioned it was her birthday, and her husband said he would buy her lunch from the vendor outside..   Smiley  

That triggered something in my head.. so I glanced at my watch to see what day it was... and realized that it was the 20th of June..  Mine and my wife's 44th Wedding Anniversary!...   so I said....
'OMG..   I probably should call home and wish her a happy anniversary!"...
... Which I did later that evening... Smiley   and I took her out to the most expensive restaurant in town the following Saturday night (a week later) after I got home...  Smiley

PS.  We were married on 20 June 1970 in the Chapel on Keesler AFB, MS... and took a honeymoon trip to New Orleans in my new lime green 70 Roadrunner!  Smiley      Forgive me for posting photos of an 'off-brand' in a Camaro website.. Smiley
