Bob,

  The 2 on top of the cowl near the cowl vent panel sides? I can get a pic later today and look at what markings are there.

where were they located mike? My mom grew up in bushwick and there was a Chevy dealership across the street on bushwick ave. they were out of business by the time the riots hit in 77.
Hi Buddy,
 The address was:  Spielman Motor Sales Co., Inc. 220-24 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn. N. Y.
It was on the corner of Greenpoint Ave. and McGuinness Blvd.

  I got mine today and the dealer was Spielman Motor Sales in Brooklyn, NY. I looked up the name in Google and got back news paper articles with that car dealers name going back to 1929 and many in the 1940's. Last records I can find for them are dated 1975 for pension trustee counts. Looking at Google maps I see there is a Key Foods shopping plaza on the property  Cry
 Oh well.....at least I now know who it was that sold the car. Looking at Google maps, you can 'drive' around the roads and see the other properties. I told my wife at least I can see the original buildings that are still standing there and the roads my car once drove down. That in itself was a strange feeling.

Got my Report today.  Not the news I was hoping for, just added another piece to the puzzle.
What was the news, Mike?

I'm doing this from memory but I believe there is a rectangular shape box under a shrink wrapped type cover. In that box is a thermo switch that was supposed to open if the motor mechanics jammed (normally ice conditions). If the motor doesn't move with the steps mentioned by Janobyte then you will have to bypass the thermo switch to see if the problem is bad motor windings.

 Throw the line in and sooner or later a sucker will bite  Angry
Someone here should question the seller about this car and why it appears once again.
They have my name from the last round of questions I asked them (and never got a reply back to may last one) so I doubt they would reply to any query I would make. You would think that IF someone really bought this and decided to resell it again that they would use a different background.

  If you are looking to get correct covers then I recommend Crane Corvettes who have exact reproductions for all years including the left side rear slope AND correct wire loom stand locations. Most of the cheap covers have the wire loom stands in the wrong location on the left side and it usually hits the windshield wiper motor on Camaros. I bought the Crane repros.  for my current restoration and when comparing them to the old original rusty covers I have, they are exact in every detail right down to the 'z' lip that separates them from the Chinese clones. The slope didn't matter if it had PB or not.  Also, they advertise the covers get full points for NCRS judging. I'm not having my car judged but it does give an indication of their (Crane Corvettes) confidence they are correct. The cost for replating would be as high as getting these repros. The deciding factor was if the replated ones were not to my liking, I was stuck with them. At least for the reproductions you can send them back and get another set. I got mine on eBay when they had a 10% off sale.
  That add looks like covers for a Chevelle only. I doubt they are Chinese copies because the edges have the 'z' lip not normally found on Chinese copies (yet).

 If you are looking to sell it, please let me know.

Thanks,

My rivets to the lower valance are also from the bottom up. Norwood car.
  That's good to know. That makes it 3 (2 originals + 1 restored using the same direction) confirmed. It makes sense to have the rolled edge on the trim side and not the valance side or risk gouging the paint or primer film and encouraging rust to develop there.

 This RPO document should answer that. Look under Z21 & Z22
