 Find any 69 without spoilers (other than the Z on the homepage!) - everyone adds them!

Found the second one. ;D Spoiler, smoiler; they're still great cars without them. IMO

Sounds like a SS. I'm sure glad I just have a plain Jane X-55 and don't have to go down the," I'm 99.9% sure I have a SS", road.

20 bucks is more my speed...60???, I don't know. Guess it's all about condition. I always thought mine were white on black till I saw the one for sale. Now that I look there was some blue on them, imagine that. Guess I need to find/buy two.

Since it is stamped with HN, it probably came out of a Biscayne, Bel Air,Impala,or a Caprice.

No...lucky would be if I actually had $60...LOL ;D
I re-read my post and I think I'm an original newbie( numbers matching). There's no such thing as resto over-kill.

I have an original California black plate Camaro with its original dealer plate frames. The front one is broken with the bottom half missing.
Found one on Ebay..
 $ that right??? I would think this is something I would want for a total resto. Is this over kill for a resto???
 Here's a photo link to dealership.   I think it's pretty cool.

I think I have Camaro Fever.................... again! ( I'm hot, don't sleep well, grease under the nails)
Have a Norwood X-55 with an automatic.My protect-o-plate says for rear axle, BV0501G.That reads to me as a 4.10 posi. But all I've seen is 4.10's as an option in 4-speed cars only.Original owner (uncle) says he didn't order any options but base SS and 8-track( that's all he could afford)so any special option is out.I haven't seen the actual stamp (yet), but I know I've smoked that one-legger before, and there is no limited slip decale in the trunk( original spare though) and it is a 12-bolt. Is this a common error? What would be the default ratio for a SS-350 with an automatic?Thanks

Thanks JohnZ.
I know the engine was rebuilt in the late '70's , not sure if carb was touched but apparently it was. Need to ask my Uncle a few more questions I see. All I know for sure is anything rebuilt or changed in that rebuild was for functionality not originality and most everything was reused.So would that fall under " dumb luck " that they replaced it with a original Camaro, Carter built, carb instead of a service model, or 70's model or something out of a Chevelle or Nova??  DH is strictly a Camaro app, right?

Originality / '68 carb on a '69 build?

Stormy California day; been out playin' in the garage. ;D
I have a Norwood built ( 05D ), everything seems to check out except that front engine pad (reference here)
Block is a 010 with a D 28 9 cast date
Intake is a 3927184 with a D 28 9 cast date
POP says carb source was Carter , which it is. The roll stamp says  7028212 with a M7  DH. I take that to mean a 1968 application for a 327/275 and 350/295 ; built in DEC 1967.

I believe this carb to be original to the car...but is that possible or within build " norms"? Could A Carter Quadrajet built in Dec. '67 been put on a car built in May '69?? I know engine line didn't care...broadcast said DH, they put a Any thoughts or information welcomed.

Found the casting date,  D 28 9.  The POP build date says T0512HB , I would say thats right on. Hope to find the partial VIN one day.( Can't see anything with it in the car). The car is too original to think it's not its block. Thanks for the help.

Been to the Red Zone many times over the years, I need to know exactly where to look for the cast date. This car is complete and in my garage.Can the cast build date be seen in a installed motor??Lots of crude....but not so much on the oil filter pad...yet still can't see anything. Rough cast...yes......looks Chevy orange...yes....evrything else is dead tits nuts.

Long time browser, first time post. I have a since new(family)X-55 car; Vin 9N648878, 05D build. It's everything I wanted since I can remember, ( born in '69).I have the POP and everything checks except the motor and rear-end. I never found the rear-end codes but the POP says BV0501G. My uncle(original owner) says the only option he ordered was the Z-27 and U-57, so the POP must have been a mis-stamp 'cause all I could find was that rear-end was special ordered and only for a four-speed. Not a big deal, I'm sure they meant BM. ( I'll find the true code later)
 My real heart breakin' question is the motor, which at one time was rebuilt. The front pad has no stampings accept B U N K .

I shit you not.

The block is a 010 motor. I'm having trouble finding the build date cast, to help on the originality. Where is that?, for starters.
My NOR date of 05D seems to me that the partial VIN would be by the oil filter rough pad. I can't see any thing.If I ever find the partial Vin that matches it would still be a No. matching Camaro, right?, reguardless of the bullshit joker stamp.
Could the block been changed in a rebuild?? Is that a machine shop stamp for "don't use this block" ?? Thats what BUNK means to in " hey, buddy, that acid you sold me was BUNK!" 

 Any help would be much appreciated
