I'm 66, and I did Ground-up resto on my car when I was 63 - 64.  Of course I had a lot of help.  Got to say I am in prretty darn good health for my age.  I am a firm believer in "object in motion stays in motion" (hope I got that right)  I really try to stay active, even though I am retired.  I love to help my friends work on their cars.  I consider it "therapy".

   It is an early car built in 66 and was a 327/ 2bbl, 3 speed on the tree originally, factory Bolero red, black interior.

Cool story ds1;   Your car is very similar to mine  11A(66) LOS built,  327/2 bbl., Powerglide on the tree originally, Bolero Red with standard Black interior.  Difference is it was my sons first car, plan is it will go back to him eventually.  When I'm done playing.  LOL!

Thanks all for the informatiom, the pad stamp is V0622ME.

That's a pretty late build, so I'd go with the 1107496 Starter, 1100693 Alternator, 3782608 W. Pump.
65  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1100693 alternator. Need correct date for my car. on: March 11, 2014, 01:10:14 AM
My 1100693 Alternator is dated 6 K 21,  Block is dated 10 26 per the front pad.  This engine is in a 11 A built Camaro.  So Alternator date is only 5 days prior to Engine build date.  I know,,,this seems pretty close, but I'm pretty sure it is the original.

Sounds like you need to get that thing "un-packed" and start getting pictures posted. The sooner you get her back out of her cocoon, the sooner the weather will straighten out (weather is waiting on you and not vice-verse). Have a great day.

ko-lek-tor, we have had 3-4 days in a row now in 30's and 40's, may hit 50 today.  So I am "chomping at the bit" to get the car out.  But it is wet and sloppy and muddy, and we still a LOT of snow to melt.  So it won't be soon.  there are some pics. of my car here:  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9975.msg73686#msg73686

  Isn't there a lip that is turned down on one side of the mount and overhangs the frame cross member? I would think that would prevent the reverse mounting. I know my BB mounts have that turned down lip.
   Mike

  Mike, Thanks!  Yes, I believe you are right about the lip.  I hadn't thought about that.  The car is in storage right now so I can't check today.  I did some searching, and found some pics. from different angle.  As I stated my Mounts are the originals, so I'm sure they have the lip.   Thanks again!
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Can 67 SB Engine Frame mounts be accidently switched? on: March 09, 2014, 11:36:46 PM
  This has been bothering me for some time now.  When I first got the car together I had some overheating issues, nothing major it hit 200 a few times.  When I'd get it out on the road it'd cool right down, I have a 180 Thermostat.  I finally figured out that the Fan was not "in" the Shroud far enough (ie: half way).  I added a 1 1/2 in. spacer and have had no issue since.  When I put the car together I used all original or correct parts, so what has been bothering me is WHY did I need that extra 1 1/2 in.?  The other night the thought came to me, that maybe the Engine Frame mounts got switched side to side. Is this possible?  Has anyone run into this?  As I remember there was no issue with the bolt holes lining up.  AND, if that did happen, would the Trans. Crossmember still line up with no issue?  As I said the car is running fine now with no issues, this just "bugs" me that I needed that spacer.  Any ideas are appreciated.  I'm a little OCD and I just want it right.  My wife bought me a T-shirt for Christmas says; I have OCD and ADD,  so everything has to be perfect, but only for a little while.  Fits!!!   Thanks!

BTW; this pic. is of repops, mine were the originals.

This is the kit I used on my 67, from Heartbeat City;
http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/20670/Camaro-Windowfelt-kit-coupe-10-piece-1967/         I was very pleased with the look and the fit.  And YES, it has the round bead trim.   
ko-lek-tor,  It looks like you have 69's, HBC has kits for all First Gens.

Mike, when you get a chance, could you post us a picture of the felts in your car?  Like I told Ko-lek-tor a while back, it is hard to find a set that looks original and fits well.  I'd appreciate it!

Phillip,  yes I can get you some pics. but it will be a while, maybe even a month to 6 weeks.  The car is in a Car Jacket now, and I don't intend to take it out 'til the weather gets much nicer than it has been.  If you can wait, I'd be glad to.

Thanks for the recognition CRG.  My 67 does not deserve to be on the same page as those two beauties..      That 68 is outsanding.  69 is great too but the 68's hold a special place for me..   Grin

Cool Darrell,  I like all 3 cars, congrats to all!   I think it was kind of neat to do all the same color.

Danny, I'm praying for you man.  I know how scary this is.  I just had Kryogenic Prostate surgery 6 weeks ago, still on road to recovery but seems to be going well.  Was watching it for over a year, they knew they really caught it early(only 5% in 1 of 24 samples)but #'s kept going up.  So decided to go ahead.  I will always remember one of the first things my Dr. said to me when he broke the news.  Cancer is that 1 word you never want to hear, it is very scary, even to the toughest of us.  My heart is with you man.  Best of Luck, and hurry back.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How long have you owned your Camaro? on: March 01, 2014, 02:12:40 AM
I have actually owned my Camaro since Sept. of '91.  I voted on poll from that date.  I originally bought the car for my son for his 16 th. Birthday Nov. 16 - '86.  Attached is a pic. of the car as I got it from him some body work was done, most of it had to be redone.  The engine in it at that time (a built 350) was junk.  Most of you have seen the car in different stages, and my profile pic. is as it is today.  Many thanks to much info. and input from this forum.

Happy Birthday John!   Thanks for all your devotion to our cars.    Many more.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wiring Harness on: February 25, 2014, 01:10:21 AM
I used American Autowire for a new rear harness, very happy.  I'm sure the wires were same color as original, but age and light had discolored the originals to some extent.   The plugs and clips were right on.  The original harness pigtails had been "butchered" considerably.
