It must be because it was never restored. I examined it closely and it still has many areas left covered with what looks like semi-gloss black paint.

I bought a front license plate bracket from member Dannystarr. He says it has the AAC on it but neither one of us was for sure if original GM. Thats why my post. ................

Gary,

  Do you think it was a reproduction font stamping? The stamping looked the same as the ones I posted.

Mike S,
Is that an original starter?

Hi Bob,
 It's the original starter.

  Just when you think you know all of your cars birthmarks....I'm glad this thread started!
The one on eBay looks very different (if it's the one being sold by 396-325). But if that is what '69 looks like then that explains it.
I looked at my original 67 and a NOS one I bought around 1982 and they both have AAc stamped.
The original 67 stamp is on the middle back and the NOS is on the front lower right (facing the bracket).
As a side note, the original was flow coated with a few large drip marks.
Notice how the 'c' is smaller than 'AA'. The 69 fonts on eBay look the same.

Is the AAC stamp only for 69? I can check my 67 when I get home.
Where is it stamped?

 You can always scan a current sticker and tape it to the windshield of the unregistered car this way from afar it looks legit.

 You're right....I see what you mean. I didn't realize the firewall color was different from the main body color.
Using whatever was available sure makes sense.

 Interesting! I didn't think the spray guns went down that far in front of the bulkhead but seeing your picture it looks like it did.

  Not all humans see color the same way due to their brain's color perception characteristics and that is due in part to the number and efficiency of rods and cones in ones eyes. When I give lectures I touch on this very topic of color perception. And as Sauron eluded to, most people don't have their computer monitor's gamma and color space set correctly, if at all. I'm an astro photographer and I deal a lot with color space and proper balance is very important for correct visual presentation and I have seen how hue interpretation can differ widely between people and displayed on monitors so trying to analyze very subtle color hue level changes on a basic PC monitor can be difficult. I use color calibration on my monitor once a month for my main monitor I use for image processing and no calibration on what I call a ‘typical user’ monitor when adjusting astro images and there is definitely a visual difference. I do this so there is a compromise in balance for web presentation.

 That's good to know, John. I have a few gallons of phosphate solution and it's no problem to phosphate those parts.


Thanks,
Mike

Hi Gary,
  Did you prime first? I was thinking to prime for the adhesion benefits and then dip.

Thanks,
Mike

  I'm curions how the paint was applied. Spray can or a spray gun with a small fan setting.  Huh

 I'm wondering if I can duplicate that finishing effect using a can of GM reconditioning black (I still have a few gallons) and a wire hanger. Where the puddles stick, they stick.
