481  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / My other 2 69's on: December 20, 2013, 01:08:35 PM
Back in 79 when I bought the "flamed 396" car, I also bought the blue SS. In 85' I bought the yellow car. Interior shot is yellow car. I was 18 when pic taken. Dented door was as I bought car. I still have all 3. Just wanted to share pics and wish all a Merry Christmas!Oops! Will have to get more Yellow car pics later, file size was too big to post.

I am building this car for her and there will be nothing totally correct on it .
First, My heart goes out to your daughter and you and your family for the loss's mentioned. No car will replace those precious lives we all know. As much as you would like things to be different, regarding both your daughter's situation and your trim tag, my advice, FWIW, forget about getting a TT and accept the car as it is and for what it is. If nothing is "totally correct", as you state, what does it matter? Not to get religious, but this well known prayer comes to mind,"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference." Hope this helps you and Merry Christmas.

My 69 was ordered with 307, 4 spd, tach/guages, Unusual? Yes, I would say, but not unheard of. With so many 67-9's made almost any combination is conceivable. Sounds like a nice car and worth fixing up. Like BCMILLER said, "post some pics."
486  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1100837 Alternator Stamping - Original? on: December 05, 2013, 09:55:20 AM
Now I am not sure where I read this, but to my understanding, the machine that put the numbers on the casting rolled it on, so one could conclude if moving L. to Rt., pressure would be exerted down and also in a Rt. direction. When the pressure of the roller got to the end of the die more pressure was concentrated on less surface area resulting in the end letters, "A"&"G", being deeper and more pronounced and you can see in the pics the right side of the letters are elongated to the righthand direction showing the force of die roller. I also theorize that some characters (numbers-letters) were fixed in the die meaning bolted in so  they did not need to be changed as often. I say this because many stampings are heavier where the "837" is as opposed to the "1100" .  I believe that the 1100 was one set of "fixed" dies and the 837 was in another gang holder that could easily be swapped out. Don't beat me up, it is just  my theory based on observation, facts and what makes sense in production as I have an Aerospace machining background. Once the die was set up with the redundant information (everything except the date and the 837 or whatever last 3 numbers used), they would be shelved until needed and the rest of the data added explaining different boldness of characters. I should add the same pressure to surface  applies to the far Left characters as well. Also casting tolerances diameter and out of roundness affect clarity and depth of characters.

no, not for a 69. Looks Like early Chevelle or Vette.

493  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the breakdown of 4 speed transmision types in 1969 Z/28's? on: November 26, 2013, 10:31:29 PM
don't forget....M20 included Saginaw 4 spd. in that number. On the RPO Spreadsheet PDF the # of combined 4 spds (m20,21,22) comes to 66434, but the trans usage chart near the top of page says 4spd usage total is 55813 (1969 year). Why?

old thread,but car is back up for sale. I must say, the model posing is the highlight of the ad at least that is what caused my interest. A lot of coin for a fake IMO.
