Never thought I'd be mentioning this, especially on this site, but among the artifacts in my shop is my 76 Pontiac Astre. Long story, but a good one. A gift from my long time, but now deceased friend C. Koch, father of Jim Koch, as in Boston Beer Co. {Sam Adams}.

I am sorry. I thought this was a different forum and there may be different opinions. Again, I apologize. I won't ask any more questions about this car.
Welcome! Pics are the key my friend to an honest appraisal you seek. Many of the same folks on the other site frequent this one as well. Mr. Lillard's opinion is probably spot on and the best you could get without pics. He certainly has bought enough Camaros and seen enough to give the insight he has given. Any other price would be meerly conjecture at this point as this subjective topic is based on so many factors.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67-69 14x6 FC wheel date codes on: January 29, 2015, 05:07:35 PM
"67 and 68 FC coded wheels are stamped with an alternate date format: ddmmy (day, month, year), stamped on the rim lip but not next to the valve stem."

http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#Wheels

Paul

That date...Outer side lip? or, inside, requiring tire dismount? 68sixbanger's ? about K-H. Are they all K-H [FC wheels], Paul? and, is it marked anywhere on the outer (visible with tire mounted) surface with a "K" or something ? Perhaps a pic of an example?

I do not like defining this as "typical".  Instead, this site would say "Normative Practice". Meaning, it falls into a range of being acceptable. Best to refer to the site's statement: "The block casting date must always be before the engine assembly date and it is usually very close to engine assembly date. Blocks have been found that have been cast and assembled in the same day, but that is not normative. There are also blocks that have been cast and then assembled months later; again, that is not normative. " found here,

If it is indeed a stripe delete car, that would explain the - - on the tag.

Oops! agreed. My own car is that way too. Should have caught that.

Guy claims Z. I am not seeing it. Steering arm? Dual exhaust hangar? Looks to be a muncie car. Wouldn't a black car be 10-10? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-Z28-BLACK-STRIPE-DELETE-1969-Z28-CAMARO-/191494693353?forcerrptr=true&hash=item2c95f921e9&item=191494693353&pt=US_Cars_Trucks#ht_169wt_1312

low numerical numbers I.E. 2.73 or High ratio would translate into a high speed performance type ratio with less torque multiplication translating to not as much off the line performance, like when starting out at a traffic light. Conversely, High number 3.73, 4.10 and higher, translate to  off line, hard acceleration performance because of greater torque multiplication usually sacrificing performance at highway speeds because of the higher RPMs  sacrificing economy [not to mention ear drums and fillings](try'n to keep it simple,not easy). 3.73 considered the best compromise of  regular driving "streetability" and spirited performance. of course tire diameters can affect in the same way, but that is another story.

Hey fellas!

Having a 12 bolt diff with 3:73 ratio. Or is this high ratio diff more specified for other needs (?)[sic]

high ratio diff...Mattf ?, that would be a low ratio diff. Low ratio = high numerical

Bill, I am surprised! Don't you know your rare options. That is the rare: I don't know anything about Camaros or WTF I am doing option. LOL, Good catch.
P.S. Not that rare of an option anymore. Becoming more and more common these days.
