Hugge
Thats a nice looking original trunk.

Yeah, but is that Hugger Orange overspray or rust?  Cheesy

I'm *partial* to my two engineer friends who both ran '69 Z28's (and other cars) in T/A and IMSA later....   Bob Christianson (R.A.C.E.), and Bob Mitchell.   Both both new '69 Z28s and converted them immediately for SCCA racing, and ran in several eastern and southern TA races.

GaryC:   

-Your pipes are aluminized, and thus are thicker, and likely have a larger O.D. than a stock tail pipe.   

-Re the slots in pipes at connections:   Yes, several exhaust pipes I've purchased aftermarket in the past have come with the outer pipe 'slotted' at the juncture to facilitate installation and perhaps the tightening down of the clamps.   You can actually break exhaust clamps by attempting to clamp some of those very thick pipes...

While I was under my car this morning, I had opportunity to get a photo of one of the rear exhaust pipe hangars installed (no exhaust there right now, but I got another view of the bolt which retains the exhaust pipe...

Here's another view of the connector in the trunk, which shows the wires a bit better.  Appears to be a simple 2-wire connector; one carrying the license light conductor, and the other (maybe) the fuel sending unit conductor.

Yes, I can do taht for you, but I've been very busy day/night the past 3 weeks on another car.   Give me a few days.. and I'll get it for you.
(REVISED:  Since it's April Fools Day, I went ahead and crawled under my car to get you these pix.. Smiley   Let me know if this addresses your question, OR not...

If you ever drive your new Z28 up near Huntsville, let me know.. and we can get together and swap war stories.. Smiley
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Paint decode for 69 on: April 01, 2014, 12:22:23 AM
that looks more like turquoise/aqua than blue...?   In what state (of the US) did you find it?

Alabama    You wouldnt beleive the 100's of cars this guy has crammed in warehouses

I'm in Huntsville, and I once knew a Z28 that looked like that one here in town, but it disappeared long ago..  Are you in Alabama as well?

It's the same date as my '480'..   I think it's an original stamping, just very corroded and oxidized.
PS. but I don't think I'd want it on my car..  it's so badly corroded...

attached are a couple of pix showing one of the rear most hangers removed from the car, with the bolt installed, and a separate photo of the three fasteners:  2 which hold the hanger to the frame, and the 3rd which retains the hanger clamped to the pipe.

Well..  obviously I like the car, but I got a kick out of a few statements the seller made..  including the two below.. Smiley

"... this gorgeous original California black plate Camaro has a few extra rare options including a rare flat hood."

".. The high revving race ready solid-lifter 302 with a 850-cfm four-barrel carburetor is exclusive to the Z/28..."

some great photos there
here are a few I liked

Ronni Kaplan Eng logo

1969 Firebird TA with some type of composite gas tank at the 1970 GM press preview

looks like a 1969 Corvette LT1 prototype shown at the 1970 press preview

Chevrolet had *planned* to do an LT-1 in the 1969 model, but for whatever reason, it never made it to production (although it is shown in several docs, even the AIM I believe)..

That was my next question as well, Mark...   When?  and WHY?   in the assembly process.....
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / First Gen FINNED rear drums??? on: March 28, 2014, 01:05:46 PM
I've been reading here that the first gen camaros never used Finned Drums on the rear brakes, although several vendors supposedly make 'factory correct' parts for these..  ie.  INLINE tube ..
http://www.ebay.com/itm/64-74-GM-Rear-Axle-Factory-Correct-9-1-2-Brake-Drum-Finned-Drum-SS-W30-Judge-GS-/190817469202?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2c6d9b8312&vxp=mtr

A bit over 20 yrs ago, I was visiting my inlaws in southern MS, and saw an ad in the newspaper for 'Complete factory disk brake setup for 69 Camaro SS'.   I gave them a call, went and visited, and purchased those parts.  I was primarily interested in the front disk setup, for potential use on other chevys I owned, but I got it all and brought it home.. it went into the back of my garage, *almost* never to be seen again. Smiley    

This past week, as I was rummaging thru the garage hunting for Nomad parts that have been hiding back there for around the same amount of time, I came across the brake parts and drug them out (still in the plastic milk crates that I brought them home in). Smiley   All of these parts still look very good; the disk rotors are clean/smooth, the rear drums are smoooth also and none of the parts had rusted in that time.   Interestingly, the rear drums are finned, and are much 'heavier duty looking' than the non-finned drums on my Z28.  The seller supposedly removed all these parts (backing plates and all) from his '69 Camaro SS.  

If these drums didn't come from a Camaro, WHAT did they come from?  These are GM drums with a GM pn (3987446)..  see photos.  Even if not 'factory correct', these drums would seem to be a nice upgrade for an early Camaro..?
