He says he takes most offers. They don't look pitted, so probably work fine, and if they are original they were made in the USA. If somebody paid $300 and they were correct for the car, I would say they did alright.
Of corse you can be a repro set that were made in China for less.

BUT lets focus here. I am more concerned about the dates and car they would have been installed in.
Kurt what was date on your original shocks that you removed from your (02D) car?

Well I was surfing the net last night and found a supposed set of spiral shocks # 3192851 but upon asking for the date that is on them he told me 33 of 67 . I was a little bummed out because I thought I found a good set, (obviously way to early for me to investigate further). He said someone told him they were for a 68 camaro. These seem like they would be even to early for a 68 I would think ? I rolled this question into my thread because the time frame would be similar. Is the beginning of 67 when they switched from part 3192420 to the part 3192851?

*these could just be reproduction shocks that somebody stamped ...
here is the ad if someone wants to see it, you can't see the stamp, but thought i would post for you guys. It seems reasonable if they are original.

thank you for the latin lesson, and spotting another persons time and money spent to deceive the many Camaro enthusiasts who love and follow this cool model.

great info cook. My 024 69 sounds like they would be fine. I hope more members with any model 69 camaro with original shocks will chime in here.

Thanks for posting those pics showing 2 different batches from 68, do you know what the build date was of the car(s) they came off of?
801  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 spiral shocks on: August 20, 2013, 10:00:36 AM
I appreciate your example. I know of a couple of batch dates for the shocks, it doesn't seem like they made them once every month like the distributors or wheels. Unless another member has seen dates from each month, I haven't yet.

 I was able to pick up a real nice pair of original front shocks but they are dated " 024 69" . The set dated " 120  69" were to much. So I know they made these in batches, and  I wasn't sure if these would be way to early for my 08C (august of 69) Z/28, or if the batches were so large and sporadic that these would still be ok.
Anyone out there still have their originals?
I know engines and engine parts were a lot closer to the build date, but I could use some help with this.

thank you, I will pay closer attention to my wording in the future.

My 69 RS Z came with no guages. My 69 L78 had none either not even a tach.
I assume your 69 L78 was an early car, did they eventually make the tach mandatory on the L78 cars, like they did on the Z?
805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I found a Sequoia Green Z28 with air plenum 9 k miles ! on: August 13, 2013, 01:44:40 AM
Ok "flying bowtie" how about some pics and an update?
806  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I found a Sequoia Green Z28 with air plenum 9 k miles ! on: August 08, 2013, 01:30:42 PM
I am surprised that sequoia green car didn't have headers, since it was said that it was raced for years.
807  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I found a Sequoia Green Z28 with air plenum 9 k miles ! on: August 08, 2013, 01:28:41 PM
sounds good, post a picture of the interior with those gauges! (please)
808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I found a Sequoia Green Z28 with air plenum 9 k miles ! on: August 08, 2013, 01:15:39 PM
Now I understand, that car looks sweet in the drive way with the early torq thrusts. Still surprises me to see so many unrestored cars without the console gauges factory, it seems like more of the track oriented cars did not have them. Maybe they ran a set of mechanical stewart warner gauges instead.
809  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I found a Sequoia Green Z28 with air plenum 9 k miles ! on: August 08, 2013, 12:00:41 PM
are these pics before or after the resto?
