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.

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?

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.

Very nice find.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 03, 2013, 09:41:09 PM
Yes I believe that John liked your examples.
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 02, 2013, 09:38:57 PM
No I understand what you are saying but there are many repro valves out there some are flat and chamfered as original, others are chamfered on both sides. ANd they pictures are generic-interchangeable on catalog listings.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 02, 2013, 03:52:39 PM
Is the Ricks pic wrong?
Nope, it's just shown upside-down; the flat side goes up, against the (flat) outlet flange on the manifold, with a gasket, and the chamfered side goes down, and mates with the top of the "donut".

If you look at the pic of Ricks and mine the weigh mechanism is reversed or backwards or something. One of them is wrong it believe.

No its the same valve - as JohnZ states there IS a top side and a bottom side of the valve.  And yes it was common practice to remove or to gut the valve, and close the hole from the removed flapper axle with a standard nut and bolt. That was what was done on my vehicle by the original owner when he removed the smog pump.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 01, 2013, 11:20:48 AM
Yeah the bottom picture looks right side up as the weight should be installed on the fender side, weight pointed toward the front of the vehicle. Take the top one and flip it around and see what it looks like. Both Look in good condition considering age.

Where are you located? It is a Home Depot staple
Australia - no HD here.... and many products cannot be shipped here due to air cargo regulations.

LOL yeah I guess not. Well like I said it is organic and safe on all materials except paper.  I think it is citrus based. You should be able to find the equivalent there I would think.
This link accepts Australian dollars so I would think they can ship it there? Worth a call or email.

The pot metal was poor quality to begin with and lost its ability to shine after hand oils had their way a few years down the road.
I found one jammed in the ashtray in one 69. My brother had a t handle on his GTO guess it is what you want it to be for comfort.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fan Shroud on: July 28, 2013, 08:48:20 AM
Unfortunately not sold here.....

Where are you located? It is a Home Depot staple, but I'm sure you can order a bucket on-line. It is cheap, non toxic, and I have used it on 60 year old fiberglass with up to 7 layers of oil, lead, and acrilic based paint sandwiches and never had a failure yet. Takes some time and leaving the part in the sun to heat it up helps alot, as well as a low power setting power-washer.
