781  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 CONVERT. TRIM TAG REAL OR ? on: September 12, 2013, 11:19:54 AM
Im going against the grain.  Its a real tag.  Obviously the rivets are terrible & not sure if its correct to the car; need more info to know for sure.

I thought the orange from the factory was from the GM truck fleet line .?.  It's that what Dana used?

Sounds like a neg & pos are swapped.  Or a ground not connected.
784  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 NOR build sheet on: September 06, 2013, 11:00:01 AM
I have not heard of any being found.  If there were to be found I would look under all seats between  the springs or even under the carpet. 

Off topic sort of but went to a local pull-a-part & they had a 68 barracuda & under the back seat was the build sheet..  So you never know.

I give the seller credit for discolsing it is a restamped motor and his careful use of words like 'correct' vs. original.
The tag looks like it was stamped on the same machine for not only the vehicle specific codes, but the 'blank' tag info as well (ST TR....)
It is a nice looking car though. Is the drive shaft optional?  Wink

Mike

Yeah I didn't read any of the salesman lingo just glanced over the pics once at work.  Good eye on the missing driveshaft.


12A build week and an X33 trim code (plus a bunch of other tag issues) equal a repro tag.
so what was the first known week for X codes? (jerrys book says the first week of december of 68)
786  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: real tag? on: September 06, 2013, 07:07:55 AM
05-11 date for a 12A trim tag..




The list could go on for days....
787  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Astro Ventilation Window Markings on: September 03, 2013, 03:18:12 PM
Correct me if I am wrong but wasnt the Astro glass just for a few months in 68 and then done?  I have never heard of a 69 having the glass.  Not saying it isnt possible.  Heck I have only seen a hand full of 68's with it..  Two of them were previously owned..
788  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: September 03, 2013, 03:00:31 PM
I really don't know much about micrometers but on the body it is the difference between 3.815 (know original) and 3.813 my 1111499. That would be a difference of .002

The cap area is 3.800 (known original) and 3.797 my 1111499. That would be a difference of .003

That seems like an incredibly close measurement to me. Could this small amount be evidence that the distributor has been turned down?

Al

The numbers stamped into the body are deeper than 0.003"..  Ill be the first to admit I was wrong and it looks like the data doesnt lie.  This just goes to show that the some of these are very hard to decide if they are real or bogus.  Congrats on having a real one and I would feel confident in buying it if I was looking for one.  Also that couple of thou difference could have been from the polishing..

I appreciate the compliment.   Just like many here wanting to learn & share the knowledge.   Grin
790  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear brake/fuel line removal on: August 31, 2013, 10:08:34 PM
Once you get all the clips loose on the fuel line (especially if you are on the lift) you can swing the line down in the back and snake the front of the line back out through the area of the firewall and subframe.  As they say, six of one; half a dozen of the other.


BTW I was a little  Huh when I saw the "Cook DW  Huh"  Wasnt sure if I had posted about this previously or what..  lol
791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: August 31, 2013, 09:56:22 PM
I think I am going to have to retract my previous statement.  Steve makes several very good points.  What was throwing me off was the stamp itself..  The polishing of the area didnt concern me.  Distributors are one of those parts that are extremely hard to decide on..

I edited my previous post to coincide..
792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: August 31, 2013, 08:42:49 PM

EDIT  

Im on the fence...
793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: distributors - what do you think? on: August 31, 2013, 08:39:19 PM
They all look legit to me.  Might want to wait on one of the experts to chime.
794  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear brake/fuel line removal on: August 31, 2013, 08:36:10 PM
I'm 99% sure of the answer but I am putting it out there anyway, do I have to wait to drop the subframe before removing the fuel and rear brake line ? They are OE and I don't want to #$%^ them up ! I am to the point of being sick of removing .040 of undercoating ,rustoleum , factory overspray etc... I am down to using a brass toothbrush with laq. thinner so almost there. Upside ,gorgeous !   Cook DW Huh


Race cars are a whole lot easier than restoration !!


Are you are wanting to remove your brake & fuel lines before you remove the subframe?  Answer is yes.  Or are you wanting to remove the subframe before removing brake & fuel lines?  Answer is yes..  I have done it both ways..  Much easier without the engine in so you can make sure the lines do not get hung on anything.
795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 with Rally Sport... RESTAMP on: August 30, 2013, 09:35:47 PM
Idk about anyone else but if its a restamp it's a dang good one..  Idk need to see the casting # & date to know 100% but as far as I can tell it looks good to me.. Huh  Only thing I would question would be the "6"..  But again still looks ok..
