3955773 is for 302/350. 3955776 is 396/427.

Confirmed the numbers above in my Sept 1970 P/A catalog...     If anyone has an original GM 5773 that they would like to trade for a GM original 5776 (for big block) I'd trade.. Smiley    Otherwise, I'd rather use this original 5776 than a repro 5773.. Smiley

Are you guys honestly surprised that they used a high output Hugger Orange car in their commercial?   What color did they use in their print ads?  Smiley

Often one hears 'think we should scrap it'..  when the color isn't orange..  Smiley

My car has never had anything but the original 302 in it... and I've never owned a big block anything ... Smiley.. These two parts seem, if not identical, essentially so...??   Did they use the alternate parts sometimes for other application maybe during shortages of one part?   I know the Rev LO rod is most often missing on 40+ yr old Z28s (due to removal for headers), but has anyone else here found the 5776 part on a Z28??
980  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Lower Rev LO rod for '69 Z28 (late) on: March 12, 2014, 05:38:45 PM
Two or three years ago, when I first began digging thru my garage for the 'original' parts I'd removed since purchase in 1976, I've been looking for the Rev LO rod that I'd removed and 'stuck in the garage' when I installed new headers that interfered with the lower LO rod.   (The headers that were on the car when I bought it in '76 (that I think were Hedman?) had not conflicted with the rod, but they eventually rusted out.)    I'd dug thru all the most likely places in my garage several times looking for that rod I'd removed, but hadn't found it until today.  In fact, I'd even went ahead and purchased a 'reproduction' 5773' rod to use.

Today, while digging out my '57 Nomad parts (that I hadn't seen in 20 yrs or so.. Smiley, I FOUND the rod...  of course, I came out with a "EUREKA, I found it".    Once cleaned up where I could read the engraved PN, I found a different number!  (5776) .. See photos of comparison between the two rods (original and repro).  Is the '5773 pn correct?  Did they change that part or PN at the tail end of '69 (my car is an 09C - Sept '69 - production.  HELP!!

If the vin and the cowl tag are gone, what good is it? I don't see one usable panel on that car. If it had a vin tag and you could use the firewall to graft another car to then maybe. This is a boat anchor! IMHO
Drivers door and rear quarter don't look too bad Smiley
which part did you like best?   the rusted out wheelwell lip, or the huge dents running from one end to the other?  Smiley
I bet a metal recycler would love it.. Smiley

Thanks James, for the correction; to my old eyes in the photo, it appeared to be older white paint.. Smiley
983  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Correct Striping on: March 12, 2014, 11:57:26 AM
James,

The white stripe in your first photo appears to have been repainted, if you look just below the camaro emblem, on the spoiler, the white paint for the stripe is chipped, and there appears to be 'white paint' below it.  If this was original, wouldn't the color underneath the white stripe be the blue paint??  Or maybe what I'm seeing in the photo isn't reflective of the car itself?

what is a Cheville ?
Well, you had to ask...http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cheville also French for foot or ankle.

Back when I worked at a speed shop around 1980, and this is a true story, a fella came in wanting a part for a "Novelle". After trying to explain that there is no such animal, he insisted we look at his car to prove his ignorance. I and another co-worker went out to the parking lot and lo and behold, there it was, a Novelle! It was a Nova for sure, but someone had taken a Chevelle emblem and spliced the two together on the trunk,lol. So, there you have it...Novelle!!

If he had broken off that trailing 'LE' it would have been even more 'novel'...  Smiley

There are decent reproduction parts for that spacer ring for around $40...shipped to your door.

All we need is a place (Coker's tire has a huge tire ballon if I recall?) and a specific time designated, and there's no reason we can set aside that same time for both Friday and SAturday to accommodate everyone who wants to see some CRG faces.. Smiley   so what's a good time for everyone?

Hawk, so that was a car immediately in front of or behind yours..  Smiley

Phillip,

If everyone will be there on Friday, and you won't be so busy, would a Friday lunchtime meeting of CRG'ers be better for you? 
and I suggest that you choose the most 'central/findable' location?  Smiley

Here's a photo of a similar pinstripe fixture in use in 1965 at the Pontiac home plant - it has suction cups to hold it in position, and the top rail is the guide for the tip of the Beugler roller-striper. Two different Beugler guns were used - one with a thin roller, and one with a thicker roller for the second stripe. The Pontiac fixture is being used in an off-line stall, but the Camaro pinstripe fixtures were on-line, suspended from overhead balancers, and moved with the car.

Go here for more detailed information on the Beugler striping tool:

Thanks JohnZ and Kurt, for the additional info...  Smiley
Reading the Beugler data makes me want to go myself a pinstriper, and pinstripe every car I have.. Smiley
