It sounds like the Edelbrock Classics will not be revived.  I have Edelbrock Classics but not the QA1 shocks. 

Marshall Fegers at QA1 wrote back.

"For a 69 Camaro, the part numbers we list for bolt-in shocks for the front are as follows:
1967 – 1969 Front
Non-adjustable        TN505                  $93.95
Single adjustable      TS505                 $167.95
Drag race (single)     TR505                 $187.95
Double adjustable     TD505                 $267.95

1967-1969 Rear (Multi-leaf)
Non-adjustable         TN802                   $93.95
Single adjustable       TS802                  $177.95
Double adjustable      TD802                  $277.95

1967-1969 Rear (Mono-leaf)
Non-adjustable          TN703                   $93.95
Single adjustable        TS703                  $167.95
Double adjustable       TD703                  $267.95

All of the shocks are fully rebuildable, with the TN shocks being user revalveable, as well.  They are all Made in the USA right here in Lakeville, MN.
You can leave my name, but it might be best to leave either Dave Goldie or Dave Kass’ name (our resident street shock experts.)

Second - Received a picture from Ed (enio45) of the original Jacking Instructions Decal on his low mileage 69Z.  I've asked for some better quality photos which I'm sure he will provide.  I will talk to my software guru to see if he wants to tackle another one of these.

Don,    Are you guys going to tackle the 69 Jacking Instructions?  What is the date on the picture that Ed provided?

It looks like Edelbrock got out of the shock business about 1 year ago:

I sent QA1 an email to see if they are going to continue the Edelbrock Classic IAS line of shocks.

That looks terrific!  You added a cowl hood and a rear spoiler.  And it looks like the mirror was changed, seats were added, an antenna was added and the rocker spear molding.  Nice!!!

What wheels do you have now?  Ansen slots?

I hear you Mike.  It's not easy though since my underbody looks like a mish-mash of colors.

I have one pic here that show's a lot of gray:

......but a lot of my other pictures have a lot of black:

I have to decide what direction to go.

     If I want to do well in the Concours Legends class at the Camaro Nationals I should play by their rules (uniform 30 percent gloss black with some overspray).  

     Otherwise, I should pick a different class and see if I can be allowed to enter (and make it as I believe it was originally).

X3!  Having published guidelines would be wonderful but I'm guessing that the guidelines would be huge due to all the variations that could be seen at the two plants and variations due to some processes being done by hand.  The variations seem huge to me.  I have a Norwood car with a gray primer underbody and another has a Norwood car made 3 months earlier that has a mostly black underbody.

For restoration,  I have been using Jerry's 69 book and his "Appendix E: CORRECT COMPONENT COLOR AND PLATING CHART".

One problem is that things change over the years and what is acceptable one year, might not be acceptable the next year.  A drastic example.....I'm pretty sure that undercarriages could be either black or gray back in the early 90's.

Below is a picture from Camaro Enthusiast May-June 1993. The title of the article is “UnderCarriage Detailing Component Finishes” by Frank Serafine.

Don't make your undercarriage gray though.  Jerry's book (and every restored Concours car I saw at the Nationals) has "30-percent gloss black paint".

Is it an AM radio - 91APB1 ? 

Do you have any soldering experience and want to see if you can fix it yourself?

Mine hadn't worked for 37 years.  I replaced the dried out electrolytic capacitors and it fired right up.  Sam's photofacts has the schematic.

If not, there is a restoration recommendation thread here:

The page you posted listed her name as "Karen Grimord".

I believe this is her:

Hi Dave,
 Thanks for the interesting video. Did you get to see under the cars as well and if so how were the bottoms finished? All uniform black or a bottom with overspray? Colors?


Mike, There is one lift in the building and my understanding is that returning Legends cars don't have their bottom checked unless there was a problem with it the previous year.  I think it's typical that only first year Legend cars have the bottom checked on the lift.  Bowtie class cars do not go on the lift. 

For that reason, I did not see many cars on the lift.  It seemed to me that for the few Legend Concours cars I did see on the lift, they were uniform black with some overspray.  Someone with more experience than I have would be better suited to answer this judging question though.

Anyone have any photos for those of us who were not able to make it?

I had a GREAT time at the 2012 Camaro Nationals.  I learned a lot and got a lot of great advice.  Especially from judges Jerry M and Chris and a couple of guys who had Z/28's there....Dale and Al.

I took a video in the Legends and Bowtie building.  This video has more of the Bowtie cars.  Unfortunately, I used my Sony camcorder which goes to a mini-DVD which requires ripping software to make a youtube video.  This is the first time I used ripping software so I downloaded a trial version which stuck a watermark right in the middle.  Also, I usually drink way too much coffee so the video is jittery.  You can get the general idea though.

The part number according my July 1969 Camaro Parts Catalog is:


There was a picture at, but it looks like the picture was deleted.  My car is in the shop so I can't check.
104  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1111480 Distributor Stamp Verification on: June 18, 2012, 05:32:50 PM
my opinion....   It looks like it was a 1111481 and they changed it to 480.   

I don't know,

but here's a 481:

here's a picture of my 480 before Jerry M restored it:
