Thanks to everyone that has supplied pics thus far.  We still need more pics and info on this subject.  Anyone else have original fuel lines on their cars?  You can email me the pics at

Based on what I'm seeing, it seems that a 68 L78 car (which is what the subject car of this thread claims to be), should have the fuel line mounted to the cross member on the passenger's side by a metal strap held in place by one of the motor mount bolts.  Am I correct?

Chris

Yes and No.



You can not hang your hat on just that clip.  To help answer a little further.

I feel the clip on the frame mount was used on all 67 & 68 big block cars.  One thing that concerns me is the fact the fuel line was cut in that area as well as I do not see a clip or bolt or even a hole for said items on the top of the frame that secures the line.  So yes this could be a big block car.  Unfortunately, that is not enough evidence to sufficiently say that it is 100% without a doubt a big block car.  What you need with any of these cars anymore is documented ownership history, original drivetrain and/or original paperwork.  Of course the best is all three but sometimes 1 or 2 out of the 3 is enough when all other items check out and nothing seems shady or fishy.  Hope that helps.

I posted this before.  I actually bought some this week & it's a dark gray.

At this point the only data I have collected show early LOS cars.  Still need more early NOR cars to add to my list to make a determination.  At least on the data I have been collecting.

Car was originally no spoiler flat hood.  Its an early NOR build car.  I wanna say Oct 68.  Spoiler & hood added in the 70's.  Its had one repaint.  It used to have lace over the stripes which he had done not long after he bought the car in 70 or 71 from the dealer.  If anyone remembers the "Movie/TV Camaros" thread; this is the car that was in the movie "At Close Range" with Sean Penn & Christopher Walken.

Nice project.  Not too many Glacier cars around.  Here is a friend of mines 69 Glacier Z.

Below the vertical slot that is below the jacking instructions.  Itll probably be hard to read.

Dont give up!!  Did you get the name of the person he sold the business to?  Keep plugging.

Can you make out the stamp code on the trunk lid?
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 03, 2014, 04:01:23 PM
I realize the hood has nothing to do with this.  I was merely making an observation.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 03, 2014, 03:11:05 PM
Is the pic of the green Z an early 69 NOR or a LOS?  Hard to see in the pic.   Also assuming that both cars were originally flat hood cars as well?
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 03, 2014, 12:22:05 PM
I could be totally all wet, but on the fan shroud I see writing that appears to me to be a "T" with 12 8 67 below that, and -20 below that? Maybe I'm dreaming?


Good eye!

Maybe an upside down B with light amount of ink?

Mike

That could be a possibility but if you look just above the hood hinge spring you will see the B.  Plus look at the P & B on the other side.  You would be able to tell if it were the case.  At least I would think anyways.

could that be a splash apron piece that is askew?

Not sure but it looks metal to me..??..

I'm not completely up to speed on the PTB stamps. I understood them to be a rubber type stamp, not a stencil. So how does the P on the passenger side get backwards?

Excellent question!

Its done out of necessity sometimes because this area was so prone to rust but if there is anyway you can save the area around the VIN tag and factory rivets and only replace what you have to is what I would do. The cut out window for the VIN on the repop dashes stand out like a sore thumb to me. Whatever you decide to do take lots of pics of before and after to document.

Agreed
