501  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.

Boy, you robbed the cradle! Marrying a 3 year old. LOL  Seriously, A real nice car. Keep it original. I would say it was worth marrying into that family for that car. All I got was my in-laws '66 Mustang Vert. Man, I should have held out for a Chevy family, but my wife was extremely pretty and busty, I guess a Ford will take up valuable garage space at my house.

Are you referring to the tag or plate that is found on the firewall, under the "bonnet"? This is known as a "trim tag" or "cowl tag" here in the states. Whereas the protectoplate is the small plate that was attached to the warranty book and is easily and frequently separated (lost) from the car. Both tags would give pertinent information like: color, trim and date of build. The cowl tag may or may not indicate if the car was 396 equipped. This would depend on the build date starting with 2nd week of December 1968,when X codes were used for production line trim ID. Protectoplate data would give much more information regarding engine, transmission, carburetor, etc...These topics are covered thoroughly in this site elsewhere that you can look up yourself. Without those tags, very little, if anything, can be discerned about your car. Your VIN # is were I would start. At least you could determine when the car was built. Pictures to the site of different areas, like engine compartment would help others ID equipment specific to a certain option, engine, transmission etc.... lastly, looking behind rear seat on bulkhead (part that rear seat back attaches to) may give a clue as to what car is if a marking is still present or perhaps finding a build sheet on top of gas tank (one place they have been found). Hope this gets you started in right direction my UK friend. Most all topics regarding ID'ing a Camaro have been covered in nauseum on this site and can be found by doing a search of the site by topic.

Those belts (Jims69) kinda reminds me about the repro bumper jacks. They are not to be used, but are "for display puposes only". I wonder how long it will be before a facsimile Camaro is offered. It will come in a big box along with an xacto knife and a 5 gallon pail of Testors model cement (glue).

Hey guys,
I can sympathize and understand both view points. Flowjoe, I, too, would like to have some avenue to sell stuff that insures it goes to a "good home". I don't mind helping the true hobbyist and would give them a "deal",per se, just to be of help and assure my stuff was not butched up or sold off only that someone else could profit. Unfortunately, there are some who would capitalize on one persons generosity and the deal you gave them would be up for sale a week later at a price you could have probably gotten. Also, not everyone shares the passion for correct original cars as you point out. Again, I would probably take less money for my car knowing it was going to someone who always wanted a original, you fill in the blank, car. It never seems to fail, the reality might be and usually is,that the buyer is not as passionate and can't wait to get the torches out and ruin what you preserved.
 Bullitt65, I see your side too. We all have inquired on a car or part, just to be jerked around like a pawn in a game to "see how bad you want it". that is why most will be forthright and want pics and a price up front. That way ,we are not chasing down countless leads that never pan out. An analogy I like is a steak dinner. A $50 steak dinner will get my scrutiny more so than a $10 one. Why? Because I expect more as the price increases and perceive a bargain with the less expensive meal. The pics are one element, but without a price we cannot conclude:A)"Man! That's a deal." B)" Ahh, that seems about right from my experience on price." Lastly, C)" That guy is dreamin' if he thinks he'll get that."
So, no one needs to be upset about advices given. Both of you were being "normal" in your perspectives and had good intentions from both sides.

One other thing, (it was late when I posted last) The FUEL line. Yes, that pesky fuel line detail. I looked again at the pics for evidence of X55 this time looking at fuel line. A mystery here again. It is a single line and appears untouched? Hmmm...I guess the plot thickens
