Originality / Re: Two tone paint on a 69 Z/28 ?
« on: December 26, 2015, 10:13:16 PM »
There  is a drag car here in Rochester that started life as a Z/28 - two tone red with white painted top.  Too many alterations to bring back, let alone the long gone drive train. X33 car

Originality / 1969 Convertible Rear Wiring
« on: December 05, 2015, 10:58:43 PM »
Car has been apart far too long. Have questions on the rear wiring. Does the wiring for the convertible top motor go under the rear seat backing or on top and is hidden by the well liner ? And does the wiring for the lights, etc go over the rear wheel well and where does it clip into ? There is one clip on it before the connector. Thanks

Hope to bring my 68 Z/28 to the Camaro Nationals in FREDERICK, Md.  Cordovan Maroon - will see its 68 L78 brother there.  More to do in Frederick outside the show for the wife. Will be good to see old friends again.  Lots of 1st gen cars

Restoration / 1969 Pace Restoration - Pin Stripes
« on: March 23, 2015, 06:45:08 PM »
In the process of restoring a 1969 Pace Car. My intention is to put the Indy 500 door decals on the car. Originally, the pin stripes would have extended over from the front fenders into the doors. My question is : Should I put the pin stripes on that way or stop them at the fender ? Just looking for feedback. Thanks

The 14 x 7 trim rings used the 4 clip design throughout the model year. The original ones I have for an 04C build are 4 clip. I think it was just the 15 inch trim rings that changed mid to late year.

Assembly manual shows it for the L78. Bracket is mounted to the valve cover to hold the tube

Gardner Exhaust makes factory original systems right down to the exhaust clamps. I would go to their web site and read their product descriptions. Also, they may be able to assist in info regarding DB level.  I would also mention that GM had the chambered exhaust system as standard on Z/28's early in the 1969 model year and available as an option through late April. That is substantially louder than a system with a muffler.

Originality / Radiator Tank Codes 1969
« on: June 23, 2014, 10:27:46 PM »
Restoring a 1969 big block automatic with Turbo 400. I looked at the tank codes listed and did not see my code. The passenger side tank is stamped SB with a date code C. No codes on the driver side tank that I could see. It is a Harrison radiator. Any ideas what the SB code is ? has the correct brackets.  Thanks

Went to a cruise this evening. Saw a 1969 X55 L78 car that I had not seen before. Build date was 12 B. VIN is N559370 and the build number is NOR 146170, the six might be a five. Old eyes aren't as good these days but looked like a 6

I used Electron Top on my Pace Car. The installer who put it on has been doing this for 40 years. Electron is the brand he uses for its fit and looks. I do not know of anyone reproducing the right codes for the rear window.  The original corner trim tabs are getting hard to find. Be mindful of how the installer mounts the top over the front header. For manual tops, there is also a gray plastic piece that mounts on the front.  These seem to get tossed when the top is replaced

It is a 1969. Car would have been imported into Canada ( Ontario ) with the smog. The original owner bought the car and the smog had already been removed.  Holes in the exhaust manifolds were plugged.  The original owner did not take the smog off the car. That is how the car was purchased. I a restoring the car now and debating about the smog system
