Guys I have started a spreadsheet to help keep this info in order.  If you can give me your build date (on trim tag), Plant (NOR or LOS), stamping Plant Code (if readable if it isnt please note as such) & a pic that would be great.  Thanks, Darrell

  Don't trash ANYTHING as of yet. Aftermarket replacement stuff can make you crazy. Things will be missing or not quite right and you'll need an original reference. I recently bought a new set of front seats "complete and ready to install--just bolt them in". The seatback lock on the driver side didn't lock and needed tweaking, and the passenger seat was completely missing the cable that keeps it from hitting the dash and both seats sit about 2" too high. Ditto for door panels. My "exact replacement" high-dollar door panels had incorrect stainless trim that I had to swap from the old panels. The "correct" pillar post molding screws were wrong. The armrests didn't come with the stainless trim pieces. Lakeholme is so right--keep all hardware and I'll expand that to keep it all until you've finished the interior. You just never know.

Thanks George I missed that previously.

The original trunk lid on my 03E X44 1969 does not have the tabs.

Can you post a pic to add to the thread?

All 67 & 68 had/have tabs but not all 69's have/had tabs. There was a change to no tabs just no sure when just yet. That's why I'd like to see more original lids.  My 07-69 & 11-69 do not have tabs but do have the TA holes.

Interesting to see the tabs & TA tabs.  The change from the tabs to no tabs with the tabs must have happened at a later date than I first thought.

John,

 I see the trunk lid striker plate is painted. I guess in '69, or sometime before, the process was changed to install it (and adjust likely) prior to paint?
My '67 is not painted.

Mike

67 was the only year that was plated.  68 & 9 were painted.

Not sure if you were wanting to leave this in the test section or not but if you are wanting help with the question it might be better to repost it in the general discussion section.  Just trying to help.  Take care, Darrell

Are you sure it doesn't have the tabs?  I swear I think I can see an outline of one or two of them.  Also TA's were produced or went into production around Feb or March of 69.  So when would we see the transition of the lids?  


Lets see some Dec 68 or Jan & Feb 69 cars with original lids.
161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: June 30, 2014, 05:10:57 PM
Well I meant to type tabs not taps.  Im sorry but my mind is just not in it today. 
162  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: June 30, 2014, 03:19:45 PM
Does it have the taps under the lip?  Cant see in the pic.  Thanks, Darrell
