Another shot of a bellhousing from a 68 L78

Most likely on the pad.

In the 1969 model year, the partial VIN for V8 engines was stamped in either of two locations: on the engine pad or near the oil filter. The alternator was moved to the passenger side in 1969 which covered the engine stamp pad and caused the VIN stamp to be relocated by the oil filter. The block in this area is raw unmachined casting which makes this stamp difficult to see. The Norwood plant stamped the VIN on the engine pad on early cars and moved the stamp by the oil filter in the December 68 timeframe. Los Angeles was not as consistent and the VIN stamp location varied during the year.

Now that I have read the link I have a question, why would they build the 2 track cars as L89s to only turn around and put back on the cast iron heads?

Havent looked at the link but no such thing as a 12B Z11...

Also I had read in another thread about the spring clamps versus tower clamps when the switch was introduced.  This car had both originally.  My father pulled the spring clamps off due to them leaking over time & using the old worm style clamps.  Spring clamps were on the heater core side & tower as you can see on the engine side.

787  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1968 BB Bypass Hose Clamps on: August 20, 2013, 12:55:06 PM
I noticed the other day as I was going over some photos that there were 2 different style heads on the screw portion of the bypass hose clamp.  Was the socket head due to the fact it was soo close to the pulley that a screw driver was not able to be used versus the smooth rounded flat head screw on the intake side of the hose?

Sorry to hijack but does anyone know where I can get a pair of the "hooks" for the metal seat backs?  What is circled in red.

Post a pic of the trim tag & engine pad to get a better answer.  Welcome to the site as well. Grin

Bounce fabric softener will discourage them from crashing at your pad next winter.  

That's a new one on me.  Learn something new everyday.  Thanks!!

That sucks..  Been there before.  Just a tip for the future.  Put moth balls in or around the car & no critters will get around it..
793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 SS L78 Stripes on: August 12, 2013, 04:08:11 PM
I stand corrected.:-)  BTW just confirmed it on the rallye green L78.

$69,500 and I heard the trim tag disclaimer at the end. I couldn't believe it went for that knowing it wasn't an original tag car - it must have some other documentation, or is the general public that trusting ? Aren't a lot of 10 10 Z's recreated cars under any circumstances ? Sheese - I can't wait to get my Z's crossram installed, along with a JL8 rear, factory headers that were installed when I bought it, and the 1969 era factory GPS I bought at a swap meet and send it to Scottsdale. Air conditioner, too.

Commentator also mentioned it was a GM crossram - I half way expected him to say it came in the trunk. At least he said it wasn't a JL8 car -

Regards,
Steve

Tiffany was rolling her eyes cause I was talking to myself and arguing with the commentators on tv about the car..  lol  


Is there any documentation showing it is a Z28 ?

If there is Charley they never said or showed anything definitely confirming it was..


real Z28 but a repro 10-10 trim tag.  Body work is also rough.

Jerry

Jerry, Im guessing you have inspected the car previously?  That is the problem with watching this on tv (for me) you dont get to see all the details of a car.

Im pretty sure that it was just the door that got the decal but let me double check this afternoon on another original paint 68 L78 car.  In the mean time post more pics of that car!!!  Also add some data to this thread please if you can.  BTW awesome looking car from the pic you posted..  Love the LeMans Blue.
