Tail light lenses are not RS and I do not see the cut outs for the back up lights in the rear pan so I don't think it is an RS either.
I believe a pic was posted that showed reverse light holes filled in, in an earlier post in thread. I think Fahad should be checking that hidden VIN and making sure his car was not sent overseas because there is a problem with its history.

old topic, but I believe this is the same car up for sale again. Not sure what it is, but I always seem to remember the turds when they come back up for sale. Lately, there has been a bunch of them to! Wink

I am hesitant to comment too much about this topic, as I am no racing expert nor have I been around the folks who did race. I did admire Smokey, very much, and read many things he wrote concerning this topic and followed his engine building ideas. I would start off by saying that if you were getting beat by Smokey or others, then you regarded them as a "cheat". If you were on the team that was winning, then, I am sure, you would regard the car builder a genius. So, it went both ways. What I recall Smokey saying, is that if the rule book did not address something specifically, then it was fair game. So, in essence, Smokey and others were responsible for the rules being created by their "innovations". I think one "mod" Smokey told was, that the fuel tank could only be a certain size (which he conformed), but he went on to state that there was no place that said the roll bar could not be used to store additional fuel. Cheat or innovative? you decide.

Hello everyone ,
 Secondly would anyone have a decent fill tube for sale as mine is rather beat up.

 Thanks, Rich
 


I can tell you, I have never seen one black from the factory on a 69'. Secondly, one, original 69' tube, sent out in your direction today. Count your blessings, my friend.

Went out to the shop just for you Bill. I am sick today and all weekend. Anyway, that cleaner I used is called Nu-Brite. Here is a link:  http://www.nucalgon.com/products/coil-cleaners/condensers/nu-brite  Bottle says,"contains Sodium Hydroxide".

I figured it out. It was just rusty and not making a good connection.

Thanks
Man, Lawrence, that's good to know because when I read topic, I thought you were having trouble shooting your cig lighter, which I was going to suggest taking better aim, a pistol rest, and suggest the correct ammo. Also was worried about shooting inside a vehicle and the dangers with ricochet. Wheww! that is a relief...and about a week early for April Fool's day, but a primer nonetheless. hope you guys get a laugh.

Fahad, could you take some more close up or detailed pictures of the dash and the VIN (serial) number?

Unfortunately the VIN (serial) number is removed with the original dash, but I got it from the vehicle registration paper.
That being the case, remove the cowl panel (panel between windshield and hood) and there should be a hidden Partial VIN almost in the top center of the cowl. Give us a full report.

looking for opinions would I be better off to leave the motor the way it is, or to try and find original parts and rebuild the motor?
my plan/dream is to completely clean up the whole car..  .  the motor has had oil in it the whole time, and it has the muncie 4 speed trans. i believe it has the original block in the car. any suggestions on where to get reasonably priced replica tires?

Always sorry to here about a loss from cancer. It is truly tragic. I am sure you and your dad had many things planned together.
Two questions: You are asking whether to leave the engine the way it is or go original? It is YOUR car now, make it the way YOU want it. Did your dad put the aftermarket parts on the car? If so, I would consider leaving it the way it is as a "nostalgic tribute" to your dad.
2nd: You say you believe the car has the original block. If that is so or your not sure, why don't you get the numbers off the front pad and let us guys tell you what you got? That is what we do best, here!
A side note. It may be the case that you are not a mechanic or are not confident and do not know how to proceed. How do you rate your mechanical skills 1-10. One being totally inept, not knowing what a wrench is or how to hold one. lol. 10 being a mechanical whiz kid. Oh, and thanks for joining the site. We are a great group and although we can't replace your dad, we will try and partly fill that void your dad left in helping you... with the car anyway. Looks like you are in Michigan, what part? Oh, and vintage tires will be the least of your worries for awhile and I see many refer to the "leather seats"in their Camaro. That is American leather, my son, so just refer to it as VINYL from here on out. I already have my wrenches out and can't wait to be side by side helping you. Take care.

Yep, Rich, Yenko all-right. #9 made, Daytona Yellow, 4 speed. Sold by Hult Chev. Madison, Wisconsin. Looks like that was a good education investment using your student loan, that is.

You may want to get on this site as well Rich and post: http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/72581/1969_YENKO_CAMARO_VIN_LIST#Post72581

Oh, congrats on figuring out the pic thing! I remember my own breakthrough moment of posting pics, really makes it easier for others to see,literally, what you are trying to describe.
Sorry I said 9th made-I meant 9th Daytona Yellow Yenko Made

314  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 tilt column research looking for original info on: March 20, 2014, 06:23:06 PM
As I stated earlier,a little stupidity will go a long way. I am now afraid to go look at the supposedly "original" tilt wheel I bought and installed in the early 80s. I will blame this on Al Gore for not " inventing "the Internet earlier. Yes that's it,that's why I screwed up an original 1969 Lemans Blue X-55 SS 350 by turning it into a White Z 28/RS. There was no Internet ! Now you guys make me feel like a real idiot. Thanks to this site and all you guys for putting me on the right path to a correct restoration of my Camaro! Good luck to all on your projects!
I don't care what you say, I still like you and your car...just don't mention that A*****e, Al Gore on the site again.lol.
