46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Original 1969 standard grille on: September 23, 2013, 11:31:17 AM
I've tried to post this subject twice, but it didn't appear to show up on the discussion board.  I apologize if it's redundant or if it has been discussed before.  I was looking through some of my old parts stash over the weekend & noticed that the original grilles all had round ejector pin scars behind the rectangular cut outs in the grille.  In fact, a couple of the ejector pins must have been removed from the mold in one of the grilles, because a long plastic projection was left on the part where the ejector pin should have been.  I've always looked for the "bone" colored plastic to ID original grilles - is this another way of IDing them? ( i.e - looking for the round ejector pins?).  I don't believe that I have seen the round pins in that location on repro grilles.

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?
54  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.
57  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!

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....
