If they are not smart enough to post the picture of the actual item they are selling, well.. I sure am not going to be giving them any of my money. I'm dumb, but I isn't stupid.. D

If you weren't happy with it after receipt, I'm sure they would allow you to return it.

so what is the purpose of that second circular 'loop' in the bracket??

Danny,

I agree that (from the photographs), the printing of the custom 465 hp decal is better than the 302/290 decal....  emphasizing (FROM the photographs)...
the photograph in the ad may (or may not) be representative of the actual decal.  Call Bowtie and ask them those questions....
64  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 302 Air Cleaner Decal (465 hp decal????) on: January 13, 2015, 02:29:17 PM
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Camaro-Z-28-302-Crossram-air-cleaner-decal-/271189866938?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3f242cf9ba&vxp=mtr

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-1969-CAMARO-CHEVY-CHEVROLET-302-TURBO-FIRE-465-HORSEPOWER-AIR-CLEANER-DECAL-/331446970756?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4d2bc76984&vxp=mtr

Seller states:  "This is a correct reproduction of the 302 Crossram Air Cleaner Decal used by Chevy"  and this seems to be a 'classic headquarters' part, which generally are the most accurate of the reproduction vendors.

My Question:  Did GM actually sell/provide such a '465 hp' decal for the over the counter cross ram system?   This is a surprise to me if so, and doesn't make much sense since they never installed the system on any engine from the factory...

I can't say whether their 302 label is more original than others, but I find the Firestones (John and Maya) at Bowtie Muscle Car are great people to deal with and John does know Z28s... Smiley

In case you are missing your original one, here's a photo of my frayed original one (from my 69 Z28)... for comparison.
66  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Corvette rims and trim rings different than Camaro ? on: January 13, 2015, 01:43:46 PM
Danny, you are right re the open/closed valve stem holes on the trims for the two sizes/years, but I think the 15x7 trims will *fit* on a 15x6 wheel, although obviously it goes in a lot farther to the inside (rather than the fairly large gap that was designed)...

They appear correct to me....  Smiley

That paint was probably burned off by the time the new cars made it out of the plant to the holding lot...  Smiley

with Norfolk being a navy town, I'm betting that your 'original owner' was a Navy man in '69-70, Len!  Smiley   I was in the USAF during those years, stationed at Keesler AFB, MS, and our hobby shop was like a 'Muscle Car Gathering' every weekend when it was open during those years.    We didn't have or make very much money, but be assured we spent it ALL on muscle cars.. Smiley

PS.  Does your car still have the front guards on it, Len?   Mine doesn't have, but I have NOS ones I intended to install, but now I'm having second thoughts.  Do you like them?
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 15" X 7" Rallys clear everything on a '68 on: January 09, 2015, 04:20:33 PM
Here is the ad.. I think I better just try to find another set of 15" X 6". I was just excited cause this set-up has rims, tires, trim rings, and center caps reatogo.. D

     http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/pts/4830061882.html

One advantage of 15x7 wheels, besides their width compared to your 15x6's, is their availability.   The 15x7  Rallye wheels (FW code) were used on Monte carlos etc through the '70's and are much easier to find, and MUCH cheaper to buy... Smiley

Thanks all. Smiley
Bullit, just one, of the engine bay prior to re-build. It was super clean! I mean like crazy clean for an original car. She obviously took very good care of it. I wish I had more pics, but that is the only one.

women can be 'obsessive' about cleanliness, even if they can't hear the noises telling them something is wrong.. Smiley
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 15" X 7" Rallys clear everything on a '68 on: January 08, 2015, 04:02:17 PM
My answer would be: 

"The wheels themselves will fit fine, but you'd better check the tires if you go with large sizes like this..."   Smiley
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: January 08, 2015, 03:35:42 PM
The application code was stamped where the engine was assembled (Flint or Tonawanda)...
