But Gary I think you have the fountain of youth in your garage. I am hoping to see your 69 on the road before his

Well if nothing else we got a few secrets Ed on how to build a system on the cheap, and that was my intension from the beginning, to try to help guys piece together one. Glad my worthless post produced some responses from members that will help guys out... :)

Man you guys are tough to please.
I still think it could be a good deal since it can be hard to even find the pump, but I would offer quite a bit less. Maybe there are a lot of smog pump bodies out there for sale, but I don't see many for a good deal. If you factor the pump, the diverter, and the clamps, I thought it might help someone out.
Please post some links to better discounted good deals, if my post seemed absurd... ;D

Interesting that it would be a 396 auto car. To dove tail with the other thread about dealer orders getting cancelled. I wonder how many JL8 optioned camaro orders were never fulfilled back then? for such a small window and small production, was it worth the marketing value to have it as a option on the car from a business perspective? seems like it would have cost a lot to make up all the parts front and back  and training to install , to be profitable for that small of a run.

Well that was my thoughts. Some guys ask the big money for this stuff. So if you just wanted it for looks or could use it to finish off a current set up, may be a good deal.

Hey I saw this ad for a 69 smog pump on ebay. I know the're a lot of guys trying to piece back there system. Quite a bit included in the auction. I thought of Tim trying to disassemble his.
Not a bad deal, you may even offer less and get a better deal:

I will have to take off the my other drum and see what the date code is. Hopefully the stamp is more clear on that side. I would assume like Garys the dates should be pretty close, so my other one may be around 227, which would be spot on for the when the rear end was stamped on mine BU 0815G2. (August 15th)

Likewise for Gary's : 241 would be the same date his was stamped * BU 0829G1 (August 29th)

Seems like the ink stamp, and metal stamp should be somewhat close. probably not many original cars to get data points on this though.

Lloyd you into some crazy detail here. I love the pursuit, by you and Chick to get it right in a resto.
Here is a pic of mine from my 08C (late 69 car)
Not as neat and clearly stamped (could be 227?)

I watched a very interesting documentary about DeLorean. It focused more on the later stages of his life with the DMC-12, the production in Ireland, and how he bamboozled the government into investing more and more into the company, even when it was not doing well. A smooth talker to say the least

Would that same style of embossed lettering in the rubber been used on the A212CW filter installed in the 69 Z?
(I can't remember on Skips orange Z if you had a pic of that)
thanks Chick

Well I am in So Cal, and saw it on Craigslist here. To me it didn't look a while lot different than the red Z on eBay that sold for 23k. So I thought it worth mentioning. Both cars had a missing drive train, and needed rear quarters and trunk floor minimum. Red car had the correct tag,orange car may * be  an original Z since he says it has the correct mark behind the rear seat. Perhaps the  correct rear end and some other components would help indicate that. The reason I posted was merely to show there are still Z projects out there. The original more reputable cars have definitely dried up, and these types of cars are the entry level it seems now. So quite a big gap from these to the next level, and quite a bit of money.

I would think with both the red car and this car, it wouldn't make sense to do a full resto.

I think the mark behind the back seat can contribute to documenting a non X coded car. As far as the paint or spoiler, even the red car had the wrong stripe layout from a respray.

There is something reassuring about at least having an original X coded tag though.

Well we discussed that red 69Z on ebay for 23.9 that just sold. I just saw this one very similar to that car but 72 72 Hugger Orange for $22,500:
https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/cto/d/1969-camaro/6768333502.html

According to the map it looks to be located just south of indianapolis?

(One draw back compared with the red one, is this is a pre X code trim tag car, but he said it is present behind the rear seat.)
