1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: custom striped Z I saw this weekend on: August 19, 2014, 07:31:23 AM
I would leave it like it is! Very cool. I had my red GTX there up toward the food. Nice show but left about 3 when we saw showers moving in. Got to a mile of my buddies in Hilliard and started to shower.
Anymore shows you might get to? I was in Powell a week ago. Might try the zoo which I thinks October

Bill,

    I usually attend the Car Show at the zoo, which is in early October. Don't know yet if I will take the Z. I also left about 2 o'clock to go to another car show & Pig Roast in Lithopolis. Ended up driving the new 2013 RS Camaro(Black w/ white stripes, of course) because it had started to rain.

You must have been at the Clintonville Car Show held at the Park Of Roses. The Camaro is mine. I have owned it since November 1983. It is a factory black car with dark blue interior. True numbers matching 69 Z-28. And yes, it has mostly original paint on it. The design in the stripes was done back in the 70's. It is called endless lines. I just recently got it back on the road after pulling the engine & trans last year to fix a rear main seal leak and do a little clean up under the hood. In the process, I documented every part under the hood and all date codes.

Most everyone who looks at it likes the stripes and tells me to not do away with them.

Thanks for checking out my Z!!

I don't have any way of determining if my 06A came from the factory this way but it had a 5500 redline with 7000 rpm limit tach when I bought the car over 30 years ago. Last year I changed it out for a 6x8 reproduction. Also last year I pulled the engine & trans to fix a rear main seal leak and to do some cleanup under the hood and documented every part & part number and found most everything to be the correct  part number and date code. So my car could very well have left the factory with an incorrect tach. No way of knowing for sure.

My car is black. There are a couple of pictures of it on the first page of this thread.

I have been out of town since last Thursday so I'm catching up on here. Went to the Charlotte Autofair. Been attending for the past 26 years.

I think my 69 Z/28 in two numbers behind yours! Smiley

                NOR344839
711 INT     79  B   PNT
06A Build    X33D80

Cowl Tag Attached

VIN # 124379N659959


Our body numbers are two numbers apart but our VIN #'s are 5,925 #'s apart. Interesting.

Pic is likely over 400 kb, the system won't accept it. Bob is 100% correct - you couldn't have posted a better picture to verify the crank. The Z shaft is the only one produced with that kind of identifying notch. Nice flywheel, though - I wish mine was that pristine.

Regards,
Steve
 

Picture is 42.1kb, I have resized it several times. Going to try and post it again with this reply.

Looks like the can be attached now. Same pic that I tried to post last week, same size too.

As for the tach, not saying it was original to the car, just that it was in the car when I bought it.

Thanks,

Larry

I tried to post another picture of the crankshaft but the site won't let me.   Huh??

Larry, did you check the engine when you had it out to verify it has a 302 crankshaft in it?

Yes, I did that in 1984 when my brother and I put a rear main seal in it then. See attached picture.

By salvaged, I meant that it had been junked or dismantled or parted out.

I have a spare DZ 302 Engine that is stamped V0519DZ, VIN # 651115, Cast Date is D 30 9, Casting 3970010. I am relatively sure this car was salvaged in Ohio sometime in the 80-90's timeframe but if you happen to have the Z that it belongs please contact me. This is a spare engine that I bought about 15-20 years ago because I wasn't sure my car had it's original engine. Fortunately I have recently found the VIN # on my block after pulling it from the car for some detailing and to fix a rear main seal leak. The above block was cast one day before my block but the VIN#'s are 2919 #'s apart.

Thanks,

Larry

Here is a picture of the tach that came in the car.

Yes, the interior is original with the exception of the dash pad. I replaced it a couple of years ago due to the original separating around the edges and curling up. Last fall I added a repro clock to the dash and some new chrome trim to the pedals. I got the original clock with the car but it had a very small piece broken off and I couldn't find anyone who though they could repair it. I also replaced the tach with a repro with the 8K limit. The tach that was in car when I bought it was a 7K limit with the redline starting at 5500. May have been the original from the factory, I don't. The repro tach was an OER brand that in my opinion was poor quality. The tach mounting studs were not "clocked" properly and it wouldn't fit in the dash properly. I ended up modifing the mounting holes slightly to get to get it set correctly. Poor quality control.

Thanks for the nice comments about the car. I enjoy taking it for a spin. It's a blast to drive.

Here are a few pictures of my Z. Some people will cringe at the sight of the stripes but they were on the car when I bought it and are a reflection of what was popular in the 70's. The stripes get a lot of comments when I have the car out. They are called endless lines. When I bought the car it had 50,197 miles on it. Today it has 57,379. Not a lot of miles in nearly 30 years of ownership. Until recently the only things I have done to it are: Replaced the headers in 1984 with a set of white Blackjack headers. Replaced the tires, added two wheel well moldings that were missing and a trunk mat. I replaced the exhaust system around 1988-89. When I got it had mufflers in front of the rear end with turndowns on them. Made a unreal sound when the rpm's got about 4K.

The car is really solid with only a couple of spots that have been worked on. Namely above the rear wheels and a spot behind the right rear wheel where a lady backed into it when the previous owner had it. Still has most of it's original paint although it is getting thin it spots and the lacquer is getting checked .

At this time, my intent is to keep it is with just doing some cleanup and detailing under the hood plus fixing the rear main seal leak.

Kurt,

     Thanks for the welcome! I've been hanging around CRG for a couple of years and have learned a lot about my car as a result.

     As a result of the thread on cowl induction hoods, I was able to verify that my Z originally came with the cowl hood. It was on the car when i bought it but had no wiring, solenoid, relay or frame on the back of the hood. I dug out the parts I got with the car recently and found the door(knew I had that), solenoid, relay, and grommet for the hood. Other items that came with the car is the backdrive linkage and some shifter rods(Car has a aftermarket Hurst shifter in it), chrome exhaust tips from the original exhaust, NOS door and roofrail weatherstrips, and a few other miscellaneous items.

    I still need to document some other things like the bell housing, flywheel, starter, etc but after I do that I'd like to post what I've found if that is OK.

    Is it fairly common to be able to only see a few of the VIN numbers on the rough casting of the block? I have no doubt now that it is the original engine based on the car build date and the casting date of the block.

    Thanks,

Larry
