One more question on this subject.  What is a good stripper that won't hurt the aluminum tag?  Thanks for all the input guys.

I am in the process of doing a total restoration to my 1969 RS/SS 350 Convertible and I need some input as to what to do with the Fisher Body tag. Should I remove it to restore the firewall? and then refinish the tag, Or do I tape it off and work around it? Or do I leave it attached, strip it and paint it with the rest of the firewall? What is the proper way to do this? Thanks.

Thanks for the numbers. If I squint, turn my head a little, and hold my mouth just right, I can see those numbers in my manifolds. Well, should I bead blast the manifolds, paint with exhaust manifold grey and move to the next parts (after all they are the original manifolds)? Or try to find a better pair. Any comments are welcome. Thanks.

I am finally in the process of restoring my 69 RS/SS 350 convertible after owning it 33 years.  I have a question about the exhaust manifolds.  I removed them from the car today and tried to read the numbers on them. I know they are original as I purchased the car from the first owner. The car spent it's first eight years in New England and the manifold numbers are very difficult (if not impossible) to read.  Can anyone tell me what the numbers are supposed to be and if they would keep these manifolds or try to find a less pitted set. Thanks.

Heads were cast after engine was built (Aug 1969 heads on a Feb 1969 build). Could be correct for 302 but not for the build date.

Thanks to all for your help. I now have a pretty good understanding about the build of my car.  I also understand that records are no better than the one who keeps them. Chevrolet and Fisher Body didn't keep good records, but those were the times.  Guess we must do the best with what we have. Good research can fill in some of the blanks, but I think there will always be questions. Thanks again.

My car's VIN is 124679N552528.  According to production figures at Norwood, it was the 666th car built in December. How many cars a day were being produced at that time? Would this number put the car out around December 4th? If that is close, then I would guess that the 11D on my Fisher Body tag was from the week of Nov 25 to Nov 30. Am I thinking correctly? I appreciate all the input!!

My 1969 RS/SS L48 has a silver with a red bowtie Tonawanda sticker on the right (passenger side) valve cover. The engine was made at the Tonawanda plant.

Yes I know that, but is it the 18th through the 22nd or the 25th through the 29th?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh
161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Question about Fisher Body date on: February 04, 2010, 08:29:07 PM
My Fisher Body tag is dated 11D. Looking at a 1968 calendar, November 1, 1968 was a friday. Would that be considered as week 11A? Making 11D the 18th through the 22nd? or is 11D the next week, November 25th trough the 29th? Any help would be appreciated. I am tring to put together a chronological assembly of my car based in all of the casting and production dates of the parts. I am lucky enough to have all the original parts except the starter. Thank you.

The 3862194 oringinal 283 block in my wife's 1966 Chevy II has a tall distributor boss. Within 1/2 inch of where the center of the intake manifold sits.
