Danny,  remember that a little lead goes a long way (for octane)..  I'd think no more than 3 gallons of 116 octane leaded along with 10-12 gallons of unleaded, would bring your full tank to above 100 Octane...

I'd like to see that too..  I haven't seen an *original* stamp on that cast surface that was ground down first...  of course anything is possible.   It would also be good to see all the other evidences that the engine is original to the car.. ie.   casting/assembly dates, casting numbers, transmission stamping, etc...

typically those kind of numbers are a date code..might be week of the year (although the 55 example says NO to that), most probably is the Julian date...  or possibly a mold number?

The PN is the 7 digit code..  FK might indicate the manufacturer, and the following number the date code or mold number.

Your lwr control arm bumper seems to be original (although very deteriorated) ..  same PN as mine...  the '46' in your case, '1' in mine...  would seem to be some type of date coding...?   below photo is my original..  PN 3928362 FK

The regulator is a mechanical unit; it has points that can be cleaned which usually lets it work again ....

Fantastic Danny....   a big key is staying positive, and sticking close to that gf of yours, and continued working on your neat '68 Z..   will help greatly at maintaining a positive attitude..  Smiley

The 14 x 7 trim rings used the 4 clip design throughout the model year. The original ones I have for an 04C build are 4 clip. I think it was just the 15 inch trim rings that changed mid to late year.

I never saw the 'finger style' until much later..    early to mid seventies...  but I certainly didn't see all the '69's...  *S*
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: September 09, 2014, 10:38:52 PM
Thanks Guys,  Like Bullit said, any information may be worth the $$.   I worked at my home town dealership, I was even called during the holidays to accept a load of cars during Thanksgiving  holidays.  WoW, when I saw the green Z, I knew who ordered that.   My sales manager and I sat down and ordered the car so I knew what it had.
My old dealership has closed , being a small town dealer , all local business went to the next larger city 20 miles away.   

I think any information would be worth it to me, so I can pass on to my son and grandson.     I know the dealer and we were in the Houston zone.   The car is a non X code Z car, 12A .   
But my question was , on this site there was a note : "1969 Camaro 9N508855 to 9N587275 data missing ", I am 9N554389 , so if someone can tell me that the data exists,  I will order.   

Thanks again,  I don't normally log into this site as I hang out at TC, but I may come back over just because I now have all the time in the world.   I retired after 35 years in the oil patch. 

Well Kurt S  just answered my question, data for those vin's  above are still missing.  So end of road.   


if you know the dealer who delivered it, the only other piece of information you'd get would be production date, and that can be figured very closely (with 1 day or so) using the VIN number

Knowing the official production date along with a document that states the original dealer is a plus for any Camaro owner I would think.

And the official production date is lots more realistic in figuring validity of production dates on the component parts than using the 'planned/projected production week'...    e.g.  '06A'   this is only the projected period they expect car to be produced at time or order... and there can be differences, from several days to significant' delays.

I've seen, and had, many 14x7 trim rings with 4-clips...  I buy them for my friends when I see them at swap meets..  and the 4-clip trim rings are the only ones I recall seeing in the late '60's and early '70's....  but that's just my experience.. and my opinion..  (and of course everyone is entitled to their own) *S*

I'm quite4 a bit older than you, Scott.. and I was driving these cars when they were new.. and I remember what is correct (or at least what all the cars I had access to came from the factory with).    I was asking Luv2sixty9 why he thought 4 outer clips were incorrect.... I'm curious why he thinks so... Smiley
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 X77 garage/barn find on: September 08, 2014, 02:30:04 PM
That one appears correct to me..   both the condenser and the bracket and screw..  It's difficult to see the rake angle on your bracket, based on your photo..

Which fender emblems did it come with?     Z28 or 302.      The Z28 badged cars are considered late cars,   Built in mid or late March to the end of production.   Also considered when GM started pushing the Z28 package.    My curiosity is how many early cars were built compared to late cars.    I have a late car, May 15th.    I just know when I look at 68 Z cars I have not seen near as many early 302 badged cars compared to late Z28 badged cars.    I know GM added and deleted colors around January.  

and a few people likely swapped the 302 badges for Z28 badges..

Well..  in 1957, Chevrolet actually painted some 265 ci small blocks yellow (actually chartreuse, which is a greenish yellow)...
