Sorry William. I didn't relies this was one of those issues. My cars tag falls right in that area and I was just curious. Remove my post if you would like.

I'm not sure if this has been covered before, If it has maybe someone could point me in the right direction. On the Van Nuys Trim Tags I know the the change from (LOS) to (VN) on the body numbers occurred sometime during the first and second week of Dec. 68. With the DB information that the CRG has or any other research can it be narrowed down any further?

Steve, Have you ever seen or heard of any 68 built 69 Z28's with the 388 blocks?
259  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 29, 2011, 06:21:45 PM
Thanks for the pictures Steve, It seems to me that maybe they were short on blocks at times and had to have some of the 388's shipped in from Tonawanda.

Yes your probably right Sam. The quality control back in those days is not what it is today.
261  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 26, 2011, 01:36:08 PM
Thanks for the reply's Chris and John. I have a 12B RS Z28 with a 388 block. Casting date(K308) and a build date(V1203DZ). I thought it was a little early to have that block in a Z but who know how they put thing together back then. Grab a block, build it, and not check numbers? I guess anything was possible.
262  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 25, 2011, 10:04:01 PM
That is interesting Chris. Jerry's book did mention that some of the early 350's used the 388 block. What is the cast and assembly dates on your block?
263  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 25, 2011, 04:37:04 PM
In reading Jerry's New book (4th Edition) he states his research shows the 388 block was used mid year between Feb. 69 thru May 69. and only in 302's. And a range of 3 to 6 weeks from casting to assembly. Has any one seen a 388 block use on any early (68) built DZ motors?
264  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 25, 2011, 03:53:41 PM
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Paul,  That cleared things up for me.
265  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Blocks on: June 25, 2011, 02:41:45 PM
I see there were 3 regularly used blocks in 69: 3932386, 3956618, 3970010. Where did the 3932388 block come into play? Was this a left over block Chevy was trying to get rid of ? How rare is it to see one of these (388) blocks in a 69 Z28?
266  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 69 DZ Blocks on: June 24, 2011, 04:55:45 PM
Could someone tell me why Chevy used 4 different blocks for the 69 DZ 302 through out it's production. Was there any changes on the blocks besides the casting numbers?  Thanks

A little cheaper than the last one. But still out of my price range.

Hey Marty,

Was that 69 SS Z28 suppose to be an RS or was it one of those super rare one of one cars built for a some GM executive? LOL
269  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: The Dream is Gone on: May 18, 2011, 02:05:30 PM
Sorry to hear of the ordeal your going through Danny. I too have a 69 RS Z. I've been able to hang on to it for 35 years this month. I've gone through 2 wifes and God knows how many girl friends, But it's still in my garage. Now my son's want it. One day one of them might get. But for now I think I'll hang on to it. If you do have a list of parts I'm always looking for something. Maybe I could help you out and you help me in return. Fell free to PM me at:  cam1969@cox.net  I hope down the road somewhere Danny you can maybe get another 1st Gen. You got to have something to look forward to. Take care and good luck.

Rick
