It is not a good idea to turn a coupe into a convertible!

There is a lot of structural integrity to a convert to prevent it from folding up...Also the windshield A pillars are stronger in case of a rollover.....
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Early DF Code wheel on ebay on: August 26, 2009, 10:50:12 PM
That particular DF stamping seems like a later over the counter wheel.

perhaps the code is misread and is K12

K...Kelsey Hayes

1. chevrolet

2.  1972

However...I would like to contradict myself and note.....the rally slots seems like an early wheel but the picture is poor and may be deceiving....

Ownership history is the key element!
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Radio code on: July 14, 2009, 10:55:06 PM
91APB1

The first digit is the model year of the radio
0=1970. So 8=1968, 9=1969, 0=1970, 1=1971, 2=1972 3=1973, 4=1974, 5=1975

The second digit is the car line:
1 = Chevrolet
2 = Pontiac
3 = Oldsmobile
4 = Buick
5 = Cadillac
6 = GMC

The third element is a letter which corresponds to the fisher body style the radio goes in:
A - Midsized: Tempest, Chevelle, Camaro, ChevyII, Acadian, Skylark/GS, [GTO not listed by Delco but is a Tempest or LeMans, GT37, T-37 Pontiac model radio]
B - Fullsized model: Bonneville etc.
C - More than full sized: Cadillac Fleetwood.
D - Rear control: Cadillac 75
E - Toronado, Riviera
F - Pony car: Firebird etc.
G - Grand Prix etc.
H - Subcompact: Sunbird etc.
L - Opel
T - Truck
TTC - GMC truck tilt cab
V - Corvette, sometimes the V looks like a Y ?
X - Compact: Nova etc.
Z - Corvair etc.

The next two letters indicate the type of radio:9/B]
PB - Push Button AM
FP - AM/FM mono
FM - AM/FM~Stereo
K - Fader Control
MP - FM Multiplex adapter (second part of a two-piece radio)
T - Stereo Tape Player (8-track)


So,according to our data:

91APB1

1969 chevrolet midsized car ie: camaro or chevelle,AM pushbutton  1st design. why they classify the chevelle and camaro radio as the same i'm not sure.In 1969 is there any difference? i dont think there is.

Ok I have the protect-o-plate in the back of the protection plan. All numbers on the plate the cowl and the partial vin on the block match. Is this possible to fake? 


It most certainly is!

Thank you.....

what is considered an early....or late build in 69?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Radio code on: July 14, 2009, 09:29:37 PM
I posted this question on the wrong forum, Originality/Ground straps in responce to 69x33rs question (What type of radio is this?) and pic of his '69 AM radio. Embarrassed Sorry.

I'll try this again.

The '69 AM radio in this post has the same service model number-91APB1, and product number-7307311 that mine has. The serial numbers however are quite different- 11PAS-8239 on his and 11PBR-1260 on mine. Is this simply a serial number, a code to tell the difference between single and dual speaker models or just a build date? Have I overlooked a decode list on this site?

Thanks
Al







91APB1

9 1969 model year
1 indicates the GM vehicle division: 1 = Chevrolet division. (2=Pontiac, 3=Oldsmobile,
A indicates the vehicle: "A-body". (mid-sized vehicle--Chevelle)
PB indicates the type of audio equipment: PB = AM pushbutton radio. (FP = AM/FM pushbutton, FM = AM/FM-stereo pushbutton, MP = Multiplex adapter, etc)
1 indicates this piece of audio equipment was apart of the first design run. This really isn't that important compared to the rest of the model number. If "2" had been the last digit, it would simply indicate Delco had made a change in the production of the same radio (such as an electronic circuit board revision) and it would have been apart of the second design run.
 

1969 chevrolet chevelle Am pushbutton 1st design run,(possibly an early 69 car or they only had one design the entire year)

I'm not sure about the serial number,but i dont think it is anything but a serial number.

he said its a 07A..

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 396/375HP on: July 10, 2009, 09:26:21 PM
Freinds shop is working on a JH coded 1969 camaro
 cowl tag is 07A
it has a 661 muncie side case.

Does this seem right?

over the phone he cant find the vin number on the trans.....he can see it..he just cant read it.

is an 06A car a late production? i'm not sure whats concidered late production for the 69 model year since they were biult well into 70.
