Decoding/Numbers / Original DZ Stamp?
« on: March 03, 2019, 05:36:46 AM »
I have a friend who just got the is block from a family member who had it for years. It does not have the correct crank, but I wanted opinions if the stamp looks to be original?
I have not seen the block in person or seen a vin stamp (yet).

maybe someone should PM the owner and ask him if a vin is stamped by the oil filter

If you post a rear end that does not have a gang stamp, be prepared for much skepticism. While the CRG does have a mountain of pics and a range of dates, there are still some holes in the data. This rear may be correct for the time frame, hopefully the CRG has some similar examples on file, or they will question it as being a re-stamp. (from my experience)

I would say to follow the same instructions as the OP. Post pictures of the front (dual ) calipers, check the date of the car. Also post a pic of the rear end stamp.

Welcome to the CRG.
beautiful car. Try the facebook group for 1st gen Camaros, as well as any Camaro clubs in Iowa. Post a picture on Iowa craigslist and say you are searching as well. I would think you would have a pretty good chance of locating the car if you have narrowed it down to Iowa.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Well you pay a "stupid tax", just to live in nice weather. The "stupid tax", also involves the political climate here and all the wacko policies, including the DMV. I grew up in Northern California ( in Southern California now), I was just to much of a wus, to deal with the mid west winters, and then road construction summers. In Indiana the temp would drop in October from mid 70's or 80's down to mid 30's by halloween in just a matter of a couple of days. Then single digits by Christmas, and not (consistently) warm up until about April or May. That 6 month winter was a killer for me.
I still run the black plates o some of my cars, but only my white Camaro is registered, the rest are on non-op registration, because the price is ridiculous. $136 this year. But I drive the others, just not as often as the white 69. My other vehicles are registered in Washington state, they have a one time registration for collector vehicles. so you pay 1 time and never have to register them again. (vehicles over 25 years old).

I believe the car should have the 3932388 block with 4 bolt mains for that time frame.

Does the CRG have any kind of break down for 3.07, 3.50, 3.73, and 4.10 usage for the 69 production run?

Agree, clean car.  At least they put a silver grill in it  ;D   and $1400 worth of correct tires is nice.  I kind of like the tach and center fuel gauge, someone didn't actually add a console this time.  While the car may largely be incorrect in many other ways, someone will come along and likely pay the price for what they see as a nice turn key 69 Camaro, considering what it costs to restore one.

Sorry, I had to speak up. I have a car with an original center fuel gauge (no console car). These clowns cut an original stock fuel gauge down to make it fit in the center pod. So who knows what kind of stripped down shell they started with. They should have just used the reproduction fuel gauge.

I will give them points for "creativity" with this build...😁

I saw this car on eBay as well as a couple of other sites. I didn't see anywhere, where an ad mentions original rear end. One ad mentions a 3.73 rear end, as well as the ebay ad.

Other than the caution fan sticker, it is a beautiful color.

Please include a link where they state the 3.07 rear or picture.

I would check with the DMV website, as Ed said, but I would tend to agree with Fred. Some of what is enforced will depend on which DMV employee you get and how well versed he is, in his role. I recommend to make an appointment each time, less BS this way. The DMV is hit or miss. it has taken years (decades?) for me to read between the lines to get things done here.

I have heard of this happening with different cars here in California. When you go to the DMV on an older car you have to tell them the year and what you want on the title. If you don't, they just look at some of the paperwork, and do there best with the very little training they have. Even the CHP (hi-way patrol) needed help identifying a motorcycle for me. Both the CHP and DMV is kind of a Russian roulette for if you are going to get someone easy to deal with, but I have not seen an employee of either that was familiar with older vehicles.

Sorry I meant to say L89. which there were a few of those (311). But how well known was that option in relation to the others?

Kelley I looked back at both tags, I don't see evidence of a Phillips screw driver. Can you post where you are seeing this.
