Take a look at the reproductions member Don Lightfoot has on his website.
Top notch, quality work.

There has always been unconfirmed speculation and theories by many that late August, September and November production end Camaro builds at Norwood were forced to adopt the Chevelle ridged bottom air cleaner base as the stocks of the Camaro flat bottom design were exhausted. Examples put forward as factory originals have not always survived testing and several have turned out to be Chevrolet service replacements which had the Chevelle ridge design after 1970 regardless of application and part numbers. Many "original" were added after factory as the ducted hood became widely popular as an aftermarket speed part and found its way onto 68, and 67 models. Several mid and late September 1969 Camaro builds still have flat bottoms. Anything is possible. We will never know for sure.

Dave - flat for Camaro production. 70 Chevelle had ridges and so do the reproductions. Here is a great thread over at TC to reference http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54696

Looking good based on your photos. Crawl under and look for rust if it is a road salt state, or storm Sandy states. Just a few things to restore the interior such as correct steering wheel, loose the aftermarket tachometer and remove or add back the missing woodgrain dash (drivers side has it pass side does not). But all in all a honey of a 69.

So if she is true and you do pull the trigger are you going to restore her to the original specs of 711 - standard black interior, 72 Hugger Orange with B black vinyl top?

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need help on IDing a 69 RS-SS ??? on: September 07, 2013, 09:53:31 AM
No there won't be any info on the trim tag to support the born with RS/SS for your build date X codes were not being stamped so a visual inspection is the only verification.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Amp gauge problem on: September 06, 2013, 10:04:04 PM
Yup. Check battery with your multi meter first then swap the leads on the gauge.

Gary I think the front carpet and columns were Chevrolet installed. Rear carpet was Fisher.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 08:36:13 PM
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.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: August 31, 2013, 07:29:39 PM
Thank's Mike I'll take a look.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wiring on: August 31, 2013, 07:27:31 PM
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
