Rally wheels were included in the Z/28 package, and were available separately as RPO ZJ7. Z21 Style Trim was included in the Rally Sport option, and was available separately - it included the rocker blackout (except with dark colors), bright drip rail and wheel opening moldings, quarter louvers, headlight and taillamp accents, and fender and quarter pinstripes.

"DC" is a 15" x 6" '67 Corvette rally wheel; was also used on some '67 full-size station wagons; that one is a service replacement made in 1968.  Smiley

Here's the original ZL2 coil mounting on my 02D Z/28.  Smiley

John,

Any tricks involved? I have popped one side loose, but just put my foot through the floor trying to pop the passenger side. Would the build sheet be in any specific area, or "somewhere" on the bottom of the seat? I can pull the drivers side up part way, and don't see anything there. I would love to know what I have.

Thanks!

Tom

Nope, no tricks involved - just push the bottom of the seat frame rearward and up at the same time and it'll pop loose from the "hook" on the floor. Highly unlikely you'll find any paperwork under the rear seat.

Both the Assembly Manual and the Chassis Service Manual show the kickdown linkage adjustment procedure, which is pretty simple; follow it to the letter and your upshift/downshift points should be in the ball park, assuming you don't have internal problems in the transmission or vacuum leaks between the intake manifold and the modulator.

All of the '67 Camaro Powerglide upshift and downshift points/speeds are shown on page 7-35 of the 1967 Chassis Service Manual; if you don't have one, you should get one - the car is 40 years old, and no place you take it for service will have one. All the vendors have them.

So would you be able to compare these dates with doors and hood to tell if the were replaced,or would they be pulled at random from there current stock at that time?

There wasn't a lot of inventory between the stamping plants and the assembly plants - racked stampings took up a lot of floorspace, and were racked so the parts didn't touch each other, so there were only about ten pieces per rack. There wouldn't be more than a couple of weeks' spread from one major panel to another on the same car.

I had it laminated in heavy plastic (at Kinko's) and put it on a clipboard over the hood latch so spectators can see it without having to walk around the car.
3864  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: body panel numbers on: February 18, 2006, 02:26:12 PM
Those are "run numbers" from the Fisher Body stamping plants that supplied the panels; there's a letter that identifies the plant, followed by the week of production when the panel was stamped.

The 326 water pump was only used on applications that had an aluminum intake with a bypass fitting at the front; if it has the upper boss with a plug in the hole, it's a service replacement.

I don't recall the precise masking/spraying differences, but the front sheet metal at Van Nuys was hung on a separate carrier immediately ahead of the body; the Paint Shop there was combined (the old Chevy Paint Shop was abandoned when GMAD assumed control of the plant). Norwood was the traditional Fisher/Chevrolet arrangement where Fisher painted the body in their Paint Shop, and Chevrolet painted the front sheet metal in their own separate Paint Shop.

The links don't work - Photobucket says the images aren't there any more.  Huh
3868  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 LOS Z28 on: February 15, 2006, 03:07:02 PM
The note in the Assembly Manual actually refers to the stripe paint on the cowl vent grille itself, not to the cowl structure area below it; the cowl vent grille was a Fisher Body part, and they painted the Z stripes on it. The difference in underhood appearance (visible stripe color on the cowl out to the firewall) results from Van Nuys using a different masking and spraying process for the stripes than Norwood used.

L34 and L35 had two fuel lines, L78 had one.

The hood on the car in the article was an Engineering prototype/pre-production part, made from temporary tooling; an October '68 cover date meant the car was probably driven in June or July '68, before '69 production started.
