I have a '69 big block that was built in Nov. of '68 if that helps. I can take some pics and post when I get a chance.

You should try and get custom tags ED 9090 if you can  Wink

Thanks for the replies. Sorry about the typos I should proof read my posts better. A day later I found no less than 3 misspellings. Yes that Fathom Green does show the dirt almost as much as black but my GF says I am obsessive about keeping that car clean.  Wink

Happy 4th weekend eveyone. I bough a new fan a couple of months ago and finally had the time to install it. To see how well it performed vs. the old 4 blade, I got the SS out of the garage today for a quick detial and about a 12 mile cruise. About a year ago took the car to a local show, and driving throught the parking lot the temp gauge went about 3/4 full. Now with the 7 blade fan only a tick past 1/4 sitting in full traffic. Enjoy the photos. Next weekends task pressure wash the driveway.

It is your car do what you want and makes you happy. If your only concern is resale value then don't do it. Like the other posters said that unless you do it just like the factory including the sheetmetal modifications such as the correct holes in the firewall and cutouts in the rear panel for the backup lights.

I have ordered two times from them. Both small orders relative. The first order was missing a bolt and they sent me one free of charge, probably noting to them but did not they were fast in responding so I would say customer service ok. The second order was a 7 blade fan, clutch, and mounting hardware. I paid $139 for the clutch so that it would look original compared to the local parts store replacements. The clutch looked nothing like the original so I probably spent $100 I did not need to. I have not bought any of their higher dollar items, NOS parts or sheet metal.

The larger size tag for a 12A 124379N554655 car is correct, but that is not why I was able to ID it as a fake. I will not post that exact date of the tag size change, but if you read the CRG some more you might find the answer on why this one is an obvious fake.

probably costs a lot more, but if I would buy an IPC tribute it would be this one:

For the money it will drive, perform and look much better.

I am still learning new facts on these cars, I did not know a 12C ,1968 build date had an X  code, this must be one of the first .

X codes started in the second week of Dec. 1968 with the 12B build cars.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 837 alt pulley finish?? on: June 02, 2013, 11:42:06 AM
I believe Jerry M's book states alt pulley should be silver cad dichromate, but don't have a copy to hand to check.

I just checked the book and you are correct; silver cad dichromate
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: early vs. late 68 Front spoiler on: June 02, 2013, 11:38:56 AM
Are these for the '68 model year only, or were they used on the next model year until supply was exhaused? For example, was this spoiler used on a Nov. '68 built 1969 model, or did the '69 model have it own spoiler with the support bars at the start of the '69 model production in 1968?
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Glass Production Date on: May 26, 2013, 11:52:37 AM
Here are the numbers for my 11C built (Nov. '68) 1969 SS

Drivers: AX
Drivers 1/4: YX
Passenger: YX
Passenger 1/4: AX
Rear: TX

With X being the correct year code for a 68 built car even though it is a 69 model year. and the month letter codes represents a 3 month range from Aug., Sept., and Oct. for a 11C Car.

The windshild has been replaced at some time with the correct LOF manufacturer but is a newer date coded.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rebuilding 1967 L35 396 on: May 12, 2013, 05:17:07 PM
The L35 is based on a  certain HP 396 i.e. 325 HP vs an L34 which is 350 HP but is the same 396. In my opinion you chage the motor if you change the piston and CR therefore it is no longer really a L35. You can keep the pistons and CR by using a 93 Octante pump gas no problems it is still pump gas no additaves needed.
