Thanks for all the great tips and well wishes guys. At the prices they're getting for repros, I'll give the glue and trim tricks a try first.


Thanks again,

Al

Thanks guys,
I have a boat load of those clamps and will glue all edges. I'll let you know how it came out.

I did not know it had a fiberglass backing. I noticed in Rick's catalog that the repro pads are fitted to metal, if anyone's tried them, how's the fit? Good color match?

Anyone else have a dash pad lifting problem? My '69 is starting to lift at the front edge toward the windshield. It's in perfect shape otherwise.
If it can be glued, what type of adhesive would work best? I'm thinking I should remove it completely and glue every edge, the rest of it can't be far behind, or is this only a problem on the top edge?

Thanks again, Ed.

Now I have to break the bad news to him. I got his hopes up about the car's info when he told me he had the POP. Embarrassed

Thanks Ed,

I'll get in touch with him and post pic ASAP.
If it is a replacement, is there any way to obtain the missing info using a replacement POP?

A friend of mine has a very different POP than I've ever seen. It's a 69 with the top line containing the VIN only, a two line blank space, next three lines list name and address of owner stamped directly into the metal (no plastic strips) followed by 5-50, 177, and 4-9 on the bottom line.

Does anyone know why his lacks so much info?

Ed-

I know this thread is quite old but thought you might still be interested in this info.

'69 RS L65
12437 9N626607
713
04A
Deluxe interior-  full woodgrain & passenger side dash handle, bright pedal trim, console, dash mounted clock, courtesy lights, and under hood light. This car also has the hand painted stripes over the wheel openings.
I've looked very closely and can find no trace of a pebble finish, maybe because of the late build going into April of 1969?
Is there any info you could use that I left out?

Good looking '69. Good luck with your research.

What a great idea, that's what I'll do! 

Thanks John!

Thanks for your comments everyone.

I plan to replace it although I know with almost certainty it is the original sticker.
Unless someone from the dealership put it on, it was, according to the original owner (my brother) what the car came with when he bought it new. He and his wife ordered it to their specifications (a gift to her) and kept it stock except for aftermarket chrome mud flaps and a CB radio. I'm grateful he was gentle with it, using a clamp mount antenna and routing the wires through existing holes and opened panels along the way instead of just drilling everything! I purchased it from him in '71 with 35,000mi.

A lot of good info, thanks for pointing me in the right direction, rich69rs.
 
It does have the front inlet, 1-1/2" bore carb, which is correct for my engine according to the engine pad numbers. Everything is original (family member bought it new) so I guess GM still had some 255hp air cleaner stickers laying around and mistakenly slapped one on my 250hp 350.

What? GM made mistakes? Shocked Built on a Monday morning or late Friday? Grin
Maybe I should just get the correct sticker.


117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Horsepower ratings clash with stock carb on: May 29, 2009, 02:12:59 PM
I finally got a moment to myself to check out the engine pad numbers: T0409HD. If I'm correct in my interpretation, it was made in Tonawanda, NY, April 9th 1969 and is a 250HP 350 block.

I wonder, were LM1 350's still being produced at that time? I was told the LM1's were gone by January of '69???

I'm not sure if this factory wrong sticker will hurt my car's chances at some shows. Some years ago at a Camaro show, a judge took one look at the sticker and informed me either it was wrong or the air cleaner, 2GV carb and intake were wrong. Since this car is all original, I'd hate to remove the perfect condition, original air cleaner sticker and replace it with the correct one. Maybe I'm making too big of a deal with this and should just get the correct sticker.

Thoughts anyone?

Hi everyone. I'm new to this group and haven't seen any letters or questions’ pertaining to my question, so I hope this hasn’t been answered before.
I purchased a 1969 RS Camaro from a family member back in '71. I've known this car since day one and know for a fact that nothing has been changed, but it has a Rochester 2GV carb on a 350 block with the air cleaner sticker stating 255hp. All the research I've been able to uncover (including this site) states that a 255hp 350 block has a Quadrajet 4MV carb and the 2GV carb is rated at 250hp. The engine came from Tonawanda N.Y. and I'm wondering if it is just a simple case of applying the wrong sticker at the factory?
No big deal really but it has kept me wondering for many years.Huh

Thanks,
Big_Al
