811  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Sales receipt VIN only number off on: August 23, 2013, 02:39:35 PM
Ok here are the questions that pop up in my head.

1.  The order paperwork shows 07/26/68 which is a Saturday.  The plant wouldnt have gotten the paperwork until the following week which if they started the build that week it would have been a 07E not 07D..  Anyone else agree or disagree.?.

2.  The vin on the pad looks a little odd to me.  Not saying its a restamp just one of the characters looks different than what I am used to seeing.


On the flip side the pad could be fine and the vin on the paper work could be a car they let him drive until the one he ordered came in.  Also the plant may go by when the order was placed for when the build date is to occur (but I dont have the warm fuzzies about that)..


Bottom line Id have the hidden vins checked and then double checked.  And if you still have concerns see if there is a member close that can look the car over or have Jerry verify the car.

Do you have any hi res photos.  Pics are too small to make out fully or Im getting older and need to schedule an eye exam..

If you cant post them you can email them to me if needed.

Hindsight now but I would have tried a heat gun to see if the decal would soften up enough to come off.  If you can find someone that has a picture of one; heck try the pic you posted, you might be able to recreate one using adhesive paper for your printer and photoshop.  To my knowledge there is no one repoping these..  Maybe someone else has a lead..

These last two posted; although hard to see the one being it dark green, if you look real hard it looks as though it has a similar tape line across the lid of the trunk area due to the over spray onto the trunk latch bracket.  But like you said bc there is definitely variations..

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.

821  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!!
