That is truly unbelievable artwork and craftsmanship..  I would be curious to know the man hours in this project..

I wouldn't put a 302 in anything by choice. Realize several of the TA teams reputedly cheated and ran stroked 302's (aka LT1 350's).
The *only* reason Chevrolet made the 302 is because of TA rules. When the rules allowed it, Chevy went to the LT1.
A little balancing and you'll have more power and same rpm....

Try flipping the rubber portion to the other side of the throttle lever and keep the plastic to the inside and see if that helps.  Just a thought.

I always use the hole just below.  May not be correct but it works.

That does help.  Thanks Darrell.


The stamp is in the lower center portion of the inner layer portion of the lid.

Pic link should work now...

I have been very fortunate, my father collects and restores vintage flathead fords so I have had access to tools garages and knowledge for my entire life. After learning to use a screw driver at 3 years old I removed every switch plate and door knob I could reach and met my dad at the door with a hand full of screws. My dad has a picture of me with my baby blanket in a 1940 Ford taking everything apart.


James, sounds like you and I grew up under the similar circumstances.  Growing up my father worked 2nd and 3rd shift and during the day would work on Camaros and other musclecars and we would always go out to junk yards and I would be handed flat head, phillips, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16" wrenches and told to got get bolts and screws while he pulled the larger parts..  I was his right hand man.  2006 I lost him and damn do I miss talking and hanging out with him.  But those memories will never be forgotten.

I would believe that this is an L78 car from what I have seen.  Also looks like the big center link too.  If it isnt then someone went in to detail changing out parts that most would not have known to change.  Just my $0.02

Question.

How was the fan shroud held on on the top?  Also what is the radiator tag say and the rad tank codes?

The 2 pace cars that my father restored back in the late 90's & early 2000s the pin stripe stopped at the fender and door edge.


39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 12:19:10 PM
$3K is a not bad deal for someone local. A person could make $500-1K from what I see there.  Just my $0.02
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 07:32:54 AM
$1001 
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 06:50:25 AM
If you can get it for $1K and dont want it let me know and Ill take it..  We have a plant in Auburn, WA and I get have it shipped down here..   Wink
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Good "garage find" story on: March 19, 2015, 10:08:31 AM
Cool story but the new owner needs to get on here and get better info on his car.  Since he thinks it should have a SS hood and a 4 speed..  It says "Duct Hood" on the order sheet that was in the glovebox..  And especially if he thinks it needs a full restoration.  Id leave it as is.  Its only original once!!   Wink


43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: March 19, 2015, 07:09:27 AM
Darrell, and it is just "16" - no other numbers or letters.

Ok, well crap..  That makes things a little harder then.. 


Here is another one, this is an 04C survivor X77 that was posted for sale (IIRC) a few years ago by Stefano over at sYc. The third picture shows the trunk lid date stamp, not so easy to make out last digit but it's definitely T A1x, so has to be week 10 or later - up to 3rd week of April, week 16 or thereabouts.
 

Tim, thank you!
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: March 18, 2015, 07:07:16 PM
This is a picture from an 03E NOR X77 survivor, GM of Canada-documented car that has a production date of April 7, 1969; I noted it because the rear spoiler nuts are of the acorn style:


Do you know the stamp date?

Darrell, the second one has a date code of 16th week. 

Thats strange.  That would put it in the April - May timeframe and none of the lids I have have the tabs & T/A holes..  Hmmmm
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: March 18, 2015, 02:46:59 PM
That second set of pics is the exactly the types of lids I need.  Lids with the T/A holes and the tabs vs lids without the tabs and T/A holes. Right now it looks like the Feb - Mar time frame of 69 when this change occurred..
