What was the factory compression ratio on a 1969 302, 10:01 or 11:01?

Thanks for your help on this..This trailer has a curved nose on it, so I think it will be OK..I found out today that the 1969 camaro is about 16 ft. long which will work great for my application...

Will a 1967 thru 69 Camaro fit in a 20' Haulmark enlosed trailer with a (PS) side door..I have a limited turn around area in my driveway and anything much bigger then this and  I want be able to turn it around to unload it or will my trunk be able to pull it...Its tight right now with my 20' open top trailer, but my little 63 Nova SS does not take up all that much of a foot print on the trialer....I'm gussing it will fit but would like a second opinion...

I will double check the build date again I may have wrote it down or guess once I got my notes home...Its an ageing thing or just cant read my hand writing anymore...

Thanks for the input though...I'll try and go over tomorrow and look at it again...

I went to see a guy today that has a 1969 Z28 Vin.# 12437N663446 with the following cowl tag info..
Trim 711
code 52-52

This is all the all the info I could find on the car without putting it on a lift. It looks like the motor as either been replaced or the block decked..The partial vin # and build dates are gone..

He bought this car from someone that had lived in Rockwell Texas..Anyone knowing anything about this car my friend would like to know...I looked at this car because we said he wanted sell it so I thought I would check it out...The body of the car looks to be in great shape and the paint is very nice as well, it would be a great car if anyone is looking.  This car would clean up very nicely and could be a daily driver.  He belives it to have a 3:73...The car is now painted a British Green (I think) with Black Interior which is in great shape..If you want his contact info just let me know...

Are these partial vin numbers missing a digit...I thought the partial vin # had 9 numbers and letters..What am I missing..?
232  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car Vin# and Cowl Tag Info on: February 02, 2011, 07:39:37 PM
I'm hoping to be able to find that out tomorrow...

233  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car Vin# and Cowl Tag Info on: February 01, 2011, 07:46:19 PM
Not that is matters, but here is how I came up with 652...End of Feb. Vin.# 607164 minus the car vin number 606512 = # 652  from the last week..And you are correct 17444/4=4361 car/week...
234  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car Vin# and Cowl Tag Info on: January 31, 2011, 09:23:27 PM
I used the end of Jan. month vin numbers 589720 and the end of Feb vin number 607164 and ran the numbes from there,,,Let me know if this is the wrong way of doing this...I got the numbers from the production vin code list post on the home page..

235  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car Vin# and Cowl Tag Info on: January 31, 2011, 09:02:16 PM
Thanks guys..This has been fun...I found out a lot tonight...By this car being built the last week of Feb. I should buy it for my wife since her birthday is Feb. 25th ...Do you think this will help sell her on the deal...This car is one of 652 cars built the last week of Feb. 1969..

This there anywhere I can apply the vin # to see what dealership this car was sold to..If not, maybe our DMV will have some of this info...

236  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Car Vin# and Cowl Tag Info on: January 31, 2011, 06:46:46 PM

Recently, I started looking at the 69 z28's..A car that I could not afford when I was a teenagers, but like many others still admire and want. Several weeks ago, I looked at a really nice 69 z and based on what I've seen so far this is the nicest car I have looked at...Right then and there I wanted it..

Like many others, I convinced myself (without asking ) and assumed that for someone to spend the kind of money that it takes to do a car right the car had to be fully documented, but not so...This car was rebuilt  (1) for the love of the car, (2) as close as possible to the real thing and (3) done without misleading anyone...I mislead myself in assuming it was fully documented. Again, like I'm sure others have done when they see the car they want...

I still want the car, but my business sense tells me to pass, my male ego tells me Oh !! go ahead its what you want...Then reality  kicks in and I asked the question we all asked ourselves..Will I be able to get my money back or most of it in a few years, especially if I don't drive it and just show it as the beauty that it is...

When it comes to classic car in this price range..I'm in tough place and not sure which way to go...At least if  I do decide to buy the car, it will be done knowing that the car is not an all original matching numbers car, and I will have no one to blame but myself..

238  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Barrett-Jackson, The Correction Factor on: January 28, 2011, 08:49:53 PM
So what does this mean for the average guy trying to sell or buy an above average 67,68 or 69 z/28 car these days start between $60 to $70k or less...Since it seems to be a buyers market with most things these days I'm not sure it will hold true for all models..Nor does it mean you'll get good deal either.  Over the past three weeks not any of the nice 69 z28's listed on e-bay, got bids greater than $55k that I recall...This kinda tell me where the market seem to be at....Will owner sell or just sit on their cars....

So how does one know where to start when the seller wants a lot for a car...What rule of thumb does someone use these days to buy a car, make the low ball offer, send it up the flag pole and see that happens...

That seem to be disrespectful to the guy that has a very nice car..If I were buying I would not want to spend anymore than I would have to, but I would not want to insult a seller either...Never a good way to make friends...
239  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Where Should I Start on: January 21, 2011, 08:16:36 PM
These are the kinds of question I need..I'm sure my friend knows who he bought the car from since he has a title, but that person is the one that is no where to be found now...I did speak to the restoration shop and they are willing to help where they can...I will request this information from the current owner and get back to you once I have more information. !!!!

240  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Where Should I Start on: January 21, 2011, 07:21:44 PM
I'm going to help a friend of mine try and find out the history behind his recently restored RS 1969 Z/28 camaro..We know the car was an original North Carolina car with about 44,000 (something) original miles and the first and last owners are no where to be found yet. 

I have asked to current owner to send me the vehicle vin # and I will start with NCDMV to see if that gets me anywhere,,,

I would appreciate guidance in the right directions to save some wasted effort since this guy lives 3 hours from me..Plus I would not do it he was not such a nice guy...I'm thinking these steps for now..
- First - Vehicle vin #
- Second - Car Tag Info.
- Third - Post car tag information on CRG..
- Fouth -
- Fifth -

Any thought or ideas would be appreciated.
