I like the (N66) wheels. In the ford circles we call them magnum 500's, they also offered them on Mopars with an even longer center cap.

They even make an aftermarket  17" alloy version for all 3 makes now.

I am actually running a newer modern version of this wheel on one of my rides.

Not sure I would agree with the car feeling slightly quicker around town. The combo may be better for not winding the motor out, but I thought that was the whole idea. The 302 performs best when doing so.

Just my 2 cents.... Smiley


The 383 may be a nice change of pace if you tend to do more freeway driving, or don't want to get passed by everyone else and there 6 speeds.

Yup; any 8 cylinder Camaro could be ordered with U17 [required D55] and many Z/28s were. But they added $150 to the car. Z/28 required J52 power front discs [$64.25] and a 4-speed transmission [$195.40]. Positraction was neither standard or required; another $42.15. Throw in a radio [$61.10] spoilers [$32.65] and the cheapest Z/28 listed around $3,700.

May not sound like much today but it was at that time. Dealers had to be careful what they stocked. That's why most were low option.
Of the 1410 figure you stated that had the U16 option, is that just the 69 Z/28, or is that all 1969 camaros?

My car was very low on the options list 08C D80, only options- special interior group, U16, ZL2 hood, tinted glass, and Am radio, (power brakes, M21 & 3.73 Posi), out the door for $3430 !

What a deal!

I agree the only "frills" my car had, (that weren't performance minded)  was the AM radio, and some cars didn't even have that!

wow, that is wild. I would have missed it altogether until I looked real close at it. Good eyes James

well to the best of my knowledge it is a non SS badged 350 car with a muncie 3 or 4 speed. It was kinda the poor mans SS from what I understand. I have only seen coupes listed as LM1 cars thus far. I am sure somebody will chime in here and correct or add to what I have said.

Its funny on paper that makes sense, but I ran into a guy who had a 69 Z and said when the 70 Z came out he thought it would be awesome to put the 70Z LT1 motor in it ( for the power). So he found a guy who wrecked one, and bought the motor. Installed it, and while he said it ran "good", he also said it never put out the same power or had the same pull as the 302. He shook his head and said he knew it didn't make sense, and he went over the 350 and brought it to a friend who was a mechanic by trade, and the mechanic said it was running fine. So for what its worth....

Could you have a LM1 convertible?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Just became a member on: March 25, 2015, 06:14:06 PM
Hey Welcome the CRG! Congrats on the purchase. Was it an original big block car? Can post some pics for us? thanks

I think Jimmy V said his car is a pre X code, and has it behind the seat.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Is it a 1969 Z/28? on: March 25, 2015, 02:58:09 PM
Did you check behind the rear seat for the X?

I think the 15" FW wheels are a close match. I have seen sets (of 4) for about 200. If you continue to scout around you could gather other parts that look or perform similar to the original Z stuff and have a fun car.
