It is possible your was replaced during the recall for the Hot Slot carb fire issue. When you remove the carb next look and see if the slot in the manifold was filled or the ends fitted with plugs. That would most likely be why you have the service dated so close.

When I was a kid in the mid-70s, my dad was serving in the army in Germany. Right up the street in Spokane, WA, 1/2 block away, a guy had a '69 pace car, for sale. He wanted $4k for it. My Mom wanted it sooooo bad and kept contacting my Dad for permission to buy it. He never gave that permission...

Too bad 4k then 40k now maybe if she was in good shape and you had managed to hang on to her.

Thanks. We have been together a long time, good times and the bad. Hope she feels the road again this coming week. Just about done with the carb rebuild.

Timm I installed the "07029207" service replacement unit in 1983 when I wanted to rebuild my original 7029203 but was unsure of my skills never having rebuilt a carburetor and still needed to drive to work every day.

The Zero preceding the 7029207 indicated it was a service replacement. As my Uncle who was a life long GM parts manager explained it - GM always streamlined the parts supply by selecting best of bread parts to assume replacement roles at the end of each model year for multiple divisions and platforms when ever possible. Often one survivor part would become the service replacement, until a special universal designed part would be phased in a few years down the road if demand continued. 

The added benefit of the Corvette 7029207 Rochester Quadrajet being selected as the service replacement for all 1969 Chevrolet 350 small blocks is that it kept the original 7029207 jetting standards which were slightly more aggressive than the original jetting in the 7029203 that was on my 350/300 L48.

As fate would have it now 30 years later and 20 years in storage I need to rebuild that same 07029207 so finally I'm rebuilding the original 7029203 that has been waiting since 1983 for a rebuild. I'll do them both and if I screw it up I have a brand new shrink wrapped in the Delco box 07029207 in storage just in case Wink

Dave have you run the vin number at the US Government title clearing house database? She may have been sent south to the States after 81 and has been on record since then. The database will list every title hit - registration, or scrap the vin received here in the US. only 5 bucks USD so worth a shot. http://www.vehiclehistory.gov/  All the vendors attached to the program have access to the same data so the only difference is the output of the report. Some are glossy with loads of goofy graphics, and others bare bones with just the data. I use Auto Data Direct because the reports are easy to read and they take paypal payments. http://www.add123.com/  Good luck and I hope you report that you have found her.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z/28 on eBay, Has no Tach?? on: August 26, 2013, 08:46:00 PM
For what it's worth, I have an 1969 Z/28 without a factory tach. It also has no console. Also have the chassis broadcast sheet, actually only about 60% of it has survived life under the back seat. The car is an 05A car built in LA. I've talked to the original selling dealer who confirmed for me that they typically ordered Z's for inventory as cheaply as possible thus my car came without most options.

Yeah Grody Chevrolet here did the same, also with Impala Nova's and Chevelle's. Ton's of low option SS badges all over the lot those days.

Yes over the course of the model year things changed such as exhaust and Tachometers. Tachometers did became a required option but originally no. The link is busted above so what is the build date?
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Caveat Emptor on: August 21, 2013, 06:43:30 PM
LOL yeah the seller updated the specs to 10 bolt.

... But just last month I helped an elderly friend clean a nest out of a 39 Ford, and it was lined with dryer sheets.  Roll Eyes

That is the rub - you MUST renew the sheets a few times during the long winters otherwise yes once the sheets looses its stink, they like everything else is good bedding. Smiley

Bounce fabric softener will discourage them from crashing at your pad next winter. 
That's a new one on me.  Learn something new everyday.  Thanks!!

The trick is to refresh the sheets after about 60 or 90 days to keep them away all winter. I stuff a box worth in every opening, and crack they can look into including the defroster vents, air-cleaner snorkel and the tail pipes. And the added benefit is that they do not drive you out of the car by the smell or leave stains as they dissolve like traditional mothballs do. In two winters of using it I have found the mice hate the regular sent the best second to linen/spring fresh.

The two years before I had to clean out tons of the neighbors dog food and house insulation from the defroster Y vent housing under the dash - not fun and not easy to do.
