Interesting....must have rerouted the blower wire in '68. My 67 is on the bottom.

Mike, in the 67 A I M it is shown on UPC 12  A8.  There are 2, 1 right on the inboard upper corner holding the entire Harness just above where the Blower motor wire separates out, and another that holds just the Blower motor wire.

Hi Mike,
  Looking at the 67 LOS, the clip that holds the harness is on the lower right and the blower motor wire is routed under the bottom and held with a second clip.
The wire looks close to the manifold but that is just the way it appears in the photo. It is at a safe distance.

 I brought the pic into Photoshop, double the image size, inverted and adjusted the contrast and levels and it looks closer to 293912

 It could have been bead or sand blasted to cause the rough texture or then again it could have been done that way to may it look aged for another reason. But, what is of interest are the small machining grooves do no run through the number stampings as I have usually seen on other distributors. Here is a link to one made 3 days before this one as a reference. Not sure if the stampings are original or not. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Z28-1111480-distributor-9E13-May-69-302-/231148907146?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35d18c6a8a&vxp=mtr#ht_1906wt_977

Just my observation.

 Isn't that an aftermarket white top judging from the 2-piece rear window I see?
The color combo looks good, but like a black car, the dirt must show up quickly.

Hi John,

  I thought the engine prefix stamp was applied before the heads were mounted which explained why some of the stampings were close to the head to deck edge or under the water plug protrusion as with BB's. Or was it different between BB and SB in regards to when the pad was stamped in relation to the head mountings?

 That is a very well written warranty.

 My vote is with 'OK'
It's good to see these marking were done while the engine was assembled and prior to painting over them and surviving today.

 This topic has been discussed a lot. Do a search and you will find several threads on it.
This one in particular seems to make it clearer. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=10038.0
and http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=4727.0

As for '67 I can see it may have been done as a visual aid on a fast moving assembly line because many option codes were stamped on the tag.
Not sure why it was continued in early '68 but my guess would be the workers didn't realize this ad-hoc step was not necessary anymore because no options were listed to reference.

I parted out an 01B of 1969 Los Angeles car late last year and the underside of the gas tank is painted black; will take and post some pictures tomorrow.
Here's a picture of that tank, you can see where there is no paint where the tank straps were. This is not undercoating. The tank was original to the car:


Tim,
  Are those dried paint runs at the lowest points I see?

 Same here.....looked over the original '67 dash pad and no numbers or letters anywhere.

 Only speaking for '67 L35, especially the unrestored one, they are phosphate.
I can't recall ever seeing bright zinc bolt on first gen's.

 Using a gas soaked rag and rubbing for several minutes I cleaned off a section of the tank (now the rest of the car looks like poop).
What is shown is a thick film of dried paint. It looks very much like the runs you would see on a parts that were flow coated with runs that collected and dried, though we know the tanks were not flow coated.
 I noticed in the vast majority of the dried droplets there appears to be what looks like solvent popping. Typical of a paint film going on too thick and something undercoating doesn't do. I included a rear shot of the car (excuse the flat tires) to show the age and patina.
  Maybe this should be a new topic and a poll taken?

 There should be 3 bolts holding the front bracket. Two against the floor and one to the side rail.
