Charley, awesome gesture.  Makes a person rethink trying to make the all mighty dollar vs helping out a fellow enthusiast.

The BP code is 2.73 - you probably saw that. That ratio was commonly used in 1969 for the 230, 250 and 327 cubic inch engines when a Powerglide transmission was used. Probably with the 307 engine too, but I can't confirm that at the moment.  My guess is the original engine was a 307.
 

Same as my 69.

307 - glide - 10 bolt mono with 2.73 gears.

Thanks guys,

I told you wrong on the shifter on the column,  its P R N D L,    So im assuming that is power glide?

Vin is
124379N643537

trim tag,
ST69 12437 N "O" or "G" P326079 BDY
TR 727   53 E PNT
O5A       X11

I could not get you in numbers off the trans or rear end.  Only jacks i have at home at 5 ton,  and nothing will go under the car





ST 69 12437NOR326079

Ext Paint is Glacier Blue With Parchment vinyl top (if it had stripes they would have been white as well)
Interior is Ivory/Black

First week of May build which falls in line with the vin.

X11 means style trim.


If the engine is out of the car get a pic of the firewall.

We all own Camaros and are trying to get it all correct, does that mean we are all OCD?

It was a joke buddy...  Hence the smiley...   Wink

Voted today, but moving up a notch in May.
Odd sorting format? 0-20 near middle of list Over 70 below that, under 70 above. Not hat it matters, just an observation.

Tom

If the whole thread would have been read it would have been noticed that the ages listed below 0-20 was added after the fact.   Wink


Also an overlap on the decades. Any age ending in 0 fits two clusters.

Tom

Changed to help OCD types.    Wink

It could go either way on your car.

What is the build date?  Post a pic of the trim tag.  Congrats on becoming a 1st gen owner.

Nice job George.
730  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Age Groups of Our Hobby on: December 12, 2013, 07:14:07 PM
I have to be honest.  Im not surprised by the poll.  I am 35 and I am a little different than most every other person my age.  Growing up my father was my hero and when he was out in the garage working on his or someone elses car I was right there with him.  Going to junkyards, swap meets, car shows and cruise-ins were the norm for me.  All the people that I talk to and hang out with are older because the people my age do not have the same interest as myself and all of you here.  Before I moved back to TN I lived in Bowling Green, KY and while there the big things were and still are the LS cars of the late 90's through todays cars and I actually did a lot of high performance tuning and building of these cars through our performance shop.  If I were a betting man I would venture to say that the current and next generation will have the same interests and desires as we do with the 60's muscle but with the 4th and 5th generation Camaros.  I am afraid that these cars will eventually become as another has said of the post war and 50's cars..  I hope I am wrong but with the increase of prices due to auction houses and people willing to spend stupid money for a car has eliminated most of the "normal folks" that may love the cars equally but do not have the financial abilities.  The another sad thing is the the knowledge of these cars is eventually going to dwindle to just a handful of folks that had the same interests as their parents or relatives or someone that sparked that desire of wanting to understand and fill there minds of the knowledge.

Again I hope I am wrong but this is just an opinion.

And there you have it--do they really understand what changing the chip is actually doing ,probably not. Uggg--one of my older kid's buddy asked the HP of the Anglia--mean avg. of dyno pulls was 680 flywheel@7200. So he tells me he's building a 800hp 4 banger Honda to run in the 8's on NOS.

You can thank hollywood for that..  Tell him 8's for a honda would be respectable in the 1/8th..  lol

FYI everyone.

If you need to change your age group steve68 has change the poll so it can be done.  Thanks Steve!

very informative link. It looks like the results can vary a bit, and it takes playing with it a bit to get the amount of sheen you want on your end product. Have you tried this little phosphate experiment yet Darrell?

I have and it does take a little while to get the results you want.


Charley, I do not see that the Palmetto is much different than the Phosphate Prep & Etch..  You use the same basic process..  Am I missing something?
734  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: gray phosphate on: December 11, 2013, 08:53:15 PM
Edit:  Mike, you beat me to it..   Grin

There are paints that look like phosphate.  Eastwood is one company.  Phosphate is actually a chemical reaction and it creates a protective layer over the part.

  I assume this is only for the Z-28? I only ask this because of alternator fan/pulley finish differences I have seen between 2-piece and 1-piece pulley/fans designs.
Interesting how they list silver cad several times. I wonder if they confused it with silver zinc plating. I believe John Z stated on another thread that cad was not used much during the 1st gen production because of the known inherited health risks.

Mike

I was thinking that the original prints called out cad or zinc plating as the finish and due to cost & what you referred to was the reasoning for the common use of zinc plate..
