My understanding is that this style label is 80's (not sure if that is a date code in the upper right hand side but it says 1981 F1  (June 1st or 1st week of 1981)






EDIT:

The ink stamp style stickers are of the 70's and all the computer printing is 80's and then barcode is late 80's - 90's.

The ones with the barcode are late 80's - 90's.  I could be completely off on this theory and I hope someone will chime in and enlighten all of us

67 not original paint.

Here is a guaranteed original paint and stripe 68.  Granted, its the D90 stripe which is different than the D91..



424  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 D91 stripe vs 396 Emblems on: February 19, 2014, 07:12:12 PM
Car looks great Ed regardless.  The DX1 is like the D91 but at the peak of the valance panel it turns and runs up the hood as a thick pin stripe.

Again, just my opinion, but...

If the VIN tag stays on the original body, and each part replaced is done one at a time and documented with photos at each step, that is probably OK.

Moving the VIN tag from a car to another body is not OK. 

I understand that but what if the cowl & dash needed to be replaced and the tag & vin & hidden vins had to be moved to new pieces? Would that not be similar if not the same.  Im not busting your balls just wonder when the gray area ends and the line begins.
426  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Cowl Tag Check on: February 19, 2014, 10:11:01 AM
In my opinion, a "rebody" is the same as a "VIN swap" and should be handled the same.

I agree

But lets play devil's advocate for a minute:

Lets say a car is a complete rust bucket or had/has been totaled or was a previous track car (drag or road race) and it requires all new floors, firewall, inner & outer quarters, windshield and back glass channels, dash, trunk floor, trunk lid, doors and fenders.  Would that not be considered a "rebody" if all or most of those parts were replaced either with NOS sheetmetal or not?   

I guess ultimately my question is how far is too far..??..

Great looking car.  Makes me wish I would have put the DX1 back on my 69.

There ya go!!  Its actually in the upper 40's today.  Feels like spring time!!
430  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Dated Water Pump for 67 L-35 on: February 13, 2014, 02:16:05 PM
Yes I was just using them as examples..  I should have said "Just like cylinder heads, intakes as long as you are within a month or two months before the build date of the engine"..  If you go a month or two on the dates of the build date of the car or engine you would be in the clear.
431  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Dated Water Pump for 67 L-35 on: February 13, 2014, 02:01:41 PM
I would think that would be in the ballpark.  Just like cylinder heads, carbs & intakes as long as you are within a month or two months before the build date of the car I would call it good.  Actually you could probably get away with Oct 66 as well due to the BB becoming available the tail end of Dec first of Jan.

There is a reason central Kentucky is called cave country.   Wink  It may be solid ground 30 or 50ft and then there would be a hole from an unknown branch of a cave system and all it takes is weight and erosion.   Id be willing to bet that this will ultimately be explored.  They'll almost have to verify that there isnt more of these pockets under the museum.

looks like a black 59 in your pic, I did't see any mention of that one.

Thats a 62.

Bowling Green and practically all of south central KY has caves under it.  There have been several sinkholes pop up over the years.  There was one when I was living there that dropped out on a new section of road that had been opened about a year.  Took 2 cars with it.  It was very close to the Lost River Cave in BG.
