Kind of like beating a dead horse because it sounds like the OD hasn't been worked down, but it is important to measure across the diameter right at the stamp.

Yep - burnished brown.  711 trim, 61  61 paint,  05E, with X11  &  Lots of options for a COPO.   Thanks for your comments!

I just received the October copy of "Hemmings Muscle Machines" and noticed that my car is one of 13 nominated for muscle machine of the year.  It's the only Camaro in the hunt.  You can see it at www.hemmings.com/mmoy   .  If you like the car, I'd appreciate your vote.  Thanks,  Bruce

I don't have the book Mike (gotta get it).  At St. Louis,  when the bodies got on the Chevrolet side of the wall they were locked in sequence.  Seems like there were sometimes one or two bodies on car tops in the aisle there though - don't know  why or how how they got set aside.

At the St. Louis Assembly Plant, the body bank looked like a series of about 4 parallel lines full of  bodies on fixtured car tops.  Bodies could be moved to the end of their respective line and then transferred sideways over to the conveyor line that allowed them to go through the wall.  The bank was located between Fisher and Chevrolet, but on the Fisher side of the wall. The hole in the wall was about wide enough to fit two cars through it side by side, so you could walk through the opening while a body was coming through.  I worked on the Chevrolet side as a co-op student - looked through the access door many times, but never really worked over on the Fisher side.  So I really don't know how the Fisher/Chevrolet production was coordinated.

The side opposite the painters station is all ventillation.  Could have been later 60s - looks like a short leg water pump though. Great discussion - brings back memories.

I don't remember the paint line looking like that John - any idea when that pic was taken?
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 396 dipstick tube color??? on: April 01, 2013, 05:23:58 PM
Something is definitely wrong there - look at all of the paint on the ex manifold!

Nice stamp!

It will tell you the REPORTED damage/theft history of your car.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NCIB on: February 16, 2013, 02:27:36 PM
Anybody can run the NICB report that indicates prior damage or loss - are you saying that NCRS can run the NICB report that shows the delivering dealer?

Interesting that 5140 has a fairly high chrome specification and would commonly fall into the stainless steel range.  I'm thinking that they must have hugged the lower allowable range of chrome though based on the way these springs rusted!
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Leaf Spring code? on: February 11, 2013, 01:29:22 PM
Makes sense - thanks John

It may just be imbedded in the sizing roller - so every full length of stock gets embossed at equal intervals.  When the full lengths are cut to rough leaf size - some pieces retain the embossing and some don't (depending on where the full length of stock was cut).  Just a thought....

Thanks for the info.  As I'm cleaning them up, I noticed that 3 of the passemger side individual leafs have the "GMU" (or GMC) mark & 4 of the leafs on the driver's side have it.  The smallest leaf on both sides doesn't have it.  I've taken apart a lot of these cars & never noticed that little stamp before :-)
