Hi William,

  What concerns me is though it may have been put in a secure place, oxidation from air will still take place.
My '67's UOIT was found under the carpet so it was spared handling damage, but it still turned yellow from the air exposure.

Just an observation.

 I can't comment on the codes, but my first impression is the exceptional condition of the paper and hues for being 46 years old.
I re-read your thread thinking is this was a reproduction document but I see now this is supposed to be a real one.

 The BB also used a larger diameter fuel line and heavier duty springs in the front.
Being the mod was done already I assume things like transmission mount offset, engine mounts, etc are done properly. That's all bolt on parts anyhow.
I assume the 12 bolt doesn't have the traction bar perch and floor bracket. No big deal if it is not there.

 Here was a recent discussion about air cleaners: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=11091.0
I don't think it mattered if it was a SB or BB for that thread.

 The quarter drop off extension filler is galvanized so if it's just surface rust I would clean that up and reuse it.

I'm not up on X codes so I had to look it up at CRG ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=949.0 ) .
It sounds to me that unless you have paperwork to back up a COPO claim, an X44 can be a plane Jane?

Yea....the wording is cleverly written with some ambiguity.

 They were mounted on the car when painted so what you see is correct.

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Do You Still Have Your First Car? on: August 06, 2014, 02:49:27 PM
For some reason, that I still don't know today, I was conservative when I first learned to drive in '73 so my first car was a '66 Buick sports wagon. Exciting, eh?
Anyhow...when I first felt a '67 396 Camaro under my derrière around 1978, I have since changed my car ownership habits :-)

  So its up to the buyer to know? I agree somewhat, but his advertising clearly states "NICE INVESTMENT QUALITY REAL DEAL Z/28".....with the word REAL DEAL meaning just that, real....or authentic. Just that wording put the seller in a precarious legal position and could possibly be found guilty of a public offense and he knows it. That's likely the reason it was removed from eBay but I suspect it will be put up for sale through other less public channels.

 The tranny double strike looks like the numbers are shifted down one character. But the light stamp below the stronger one looks like the same numbers, so possibly it was a light strike at first followed by a second one. The same we have seen on block pads. The housing texture looks smooth but not ground down. But the tag, from what little I do know of them, seems to be the red flag. It is a nice looking car though.

 I'm slow on the uptake on X codes, but this recent post looks similar with the D80.
