Mickey & Kurt, here is a better picture of where the partial Vin is on my trans. George
242  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Stupid Question - What does Sway Bar Rubber Sleeve/Clamp do? on: March 29, 2012, 09:16:29 AM
The "U" clamps holding the sway bar to the subframe on my car were definitely dip painted black. But the bushing sleeve clamp was rusted on the outside without paint.
I took it to a wire wheel before blasting it to see if it was silver zinc or black on the outside. It sure looked like it was dark phosphate. The zinc or phosphate blasts off very quick as is thin. A dipped painted part is harder to remove the paint. There were 2 rubber marks from the seam in the bushings that were harder to remove than the phosphate. The inside of the clamp had the rough feel to it like phosphate.  George.

Thanks for sharing the info & dates. The carb date is normally stamped on the driver side of throttle plate. I believe one date is carb assembly date the other is the week the plate was machined.
The exhaust manifold date is on the backside facing the block. Probably can't read it with manifolds installed.
I think my trans stamp was right on the very edge of the bellhousing around the 10 o'clock postion.
On the distributor I looked up in my 1972 parts book and our part number(1111497) was no longer listed at that early date. The replacement number listed was described as (All 396 exc. SHP "375"). Maybe 325 & 350 HP were the same. Great work, keep hunting.  George.

Hans, over the weekend I took my swaybar pieces apart to refinish and noted the 360 degree bushing clamps were dark phosphate on both. See photo. George.

I have used "Carbjunkys" on 2 quadrajet full restorations and thought they did excellent work. Talked to them several times and they really seemed to be informative.

Congratulations on seeing this in your own garage. You made a smart, informative purchase. I look forward to hopefully hearing and seeing more about your car. It truly is a rare car in having original drive train, the engine option, and being a higher optioned RS-SS. My car built about the same time as yours has me additionally interested. Here is a list of my dated components and I would be really interested hearing on how they compare to your car. Enjoy & have fun with it. Sorry for hogging your space.

Don, there are 2 low mileage very original 69's that I know of locally. I will try and get you high res. pictures & info. The decal for my 70 Chevelle you made was exactly as the original, I wish I would have ordered the glue on decal as apposed to the self adhesive and would recommend that to others. George
248  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: March 07, 2012, 07:13:04 PM
Don do have the correct sticker for a 1969 coupe built in November 1968? George.

Color is off a little in the picture, should be LeMans blue.

Mickey, my car is completely disassembled and at the bodyshop for awhile. No finished pictures yet. Hope it turns out like this picture I borrowed. George
251  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear axal code date on: March 02, 2012, 07:58:01 AM
John, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
My Nor 11A, 396-325,  Diff Cast K88 ( Nov 8 68 ), Diff Stamp BL1111G2 ( Nov 11 68 ), Engine cast Aug 68, Inspection stamp on brake adjuster 316 ( Nov 16 ).
Definitely not completed in the second week of November. Nice thread. George
Inspection stamp on brake adjuster should be 316 (Nov 11)
252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Help and advice prior to purchase? on: March 01, 2012, 05:50:34 PM
Just caught this thread, looks like a nice car. I have a similar car, only a L35, that was built around 4 days before this one. Mine has an Aug. engine also. Distributor and 1 exhaust manifold also August. George

254  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake Line Brackets - Subframe and Rear Axle - Correct Finish? on: February 26, 2012, 06:06:45 PM
Chick, I blasted the bracket and it looks dipped in paint because of the heavier paint buildup in the fold. Nice stamping found on the back also. George
255  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake Line Brackets - Subframe and Rear Axle - Correct Finish? on: February 26, 2012, 01:37:50 PM
Chick, the body bracket shows paint on both sides as noticed by paint under bolts. I will blast the bracket today and might be able to tell if it was dipped. I have a picture from under the car that shows it was installed after the bottom was painted. I cant answer on the bolts. Also notice one exhaust hanger was installed before the bottom was painted. That has been a real mystery to me. Thanks for the diff bolt confirmation. George
