496  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 06:50:59 AM
I too, have a 7029207 Q-jet on my L48 '69. When I bought my car in '79, it appeared to be a virtually untouched original and because of that, I never checked numbers on any of the components until this year (crazy,I know). Most of my number verification efforts are spent on my big block car. The carb has a May '69 date, I believe, and the car itself is a 4th week of November '68 Norwood model. I assumed the carb was replaced under warranty and this post gives some creedence to that idea. I suppose it could have been replaced in '79 just prior to my purchase (Nov.'79). Is there anyway to distinguish dates '69 vs '79?
497  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Steering Column Sticker on: August 23, 2013, 09:33:01 PM
I kind of mess around with antique tractors, along with my Camaros, and guys are able to get unique or scarce decals made reasonably by taking a good picture and and matching font with pic  image and printing off from computer using self adhesive sticker sheet paper found at most office suppliers. Should be somewhat easy with the steering column sticker as it is just one line and just numbers. If you feel it is too difficult for you, then contact our dear friend and CRG member Don Lightfoot and see if he can assist in making a repro label.His attention to detail is second to none.

i would do a search on this site putting in "9N55 or 9N56"depending on your vin assuming it is a Nor. Build "L" with corresponding vin start #510-513 for Los A.and that will bring up orphans around the date you are questioning and these will show where partial vin is located. I have a Nor. T1108JH and the vin is on pad. Hope this is of some help.
499  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Pic of My new car from 1979 on: August 13, 2013, 10:14:46 PM
I am still trying to get the hang of posting a pic. This is the first time I have ever posted a pic.,and my fello members are seeing for the first time my Camaro as it looked when I brought it home in 1979. Yes, I still have the car and I am restoring it slowly. 12B Nor. X22. I would like Kurt to use it on home page someday. Thanks. P.S. that is my 67 SS Chevelle in background, sold to a buddy back in the day.

There are 2 other posts going back 4 years on this engine. Perhaps moderators could consolidate these. Thanks.

Sorry my friend, but X codes will only be on Norwood built 69's and only after Dec 1968 2nd week. Take some time and do some searches and read what CRG says about trim tags. Knowledge is power and you should come away from the site feeling invincible! LOL. Welcome to the site.
503  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Jerry MacNeish - Fire on: July 02, 2013, 02:09:42 PM
Hey fellow CRG'ers, I tried to call Jerry MacNeish today and a recording said that he suffered a fire (Not sure if in shop or home). This may already be known by other members, so I don't want to pry  into his personal matters. I believe I can speak collectively that we all express our heartfelt sympathy and our prayers are with you in this difficult time. God Bless Jerry.

My experience would point to a faulty pressure plate, IMO.
505  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Remove trim tag or not ? on: July 01, 2013, 09:49:40 PM
"if it ain't broke,don't fix it". If I saw a masking line around tag, I would feel better about buying car, when and if that time comes. It is only original once, Don't mess with stuff that would make someone question its authenticity. Too many cars out there now are "over restored" IMO. like Mom would say,"quit picking at that scab  and leave it alone".

I just found this site. Don't know if you're still compiling but mines a 68 ss350 01A NOR stacks.
Welcome aboard there blueSS350. Just remember that when submitting information to this part of site, that it means you can confirm your car came originally this way. If you bought it restored there is no way to confirm it is authentic. You will find these replies invaluable to cronical when changes occurred. Hope you get as much enjoyment and information as I and others have and feel free to ask about things that affect your cars accuracy. Again, glad you found the site. there is a wealth of info and some real super Camaro fans here.
507  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: drive train on: July 01, 2013, 08:37:32 AM
I know this is a really old post regarding rear axles. Two questions arose regarding :1) 12 Bolt usage,2) Dated components vs. TT build date). I could have and probably should have started a new post, but felt knowing what prompted me to post was relevant. I really do not have a question, but merely wanted to add my observations from my three '69's. I figure the more information shared helps paint a mosaic of  the assembly practices. Hopefully, information divulged will not be used for fraudulent purposes. I have 3 Norwood built cars. 11D,12B,3E. The first 2 are SS cars with 12 bolts. the 11D is an L48 auto, BS1118(Nov18), The 12B has M20, BS1122 (Nov22). My 1st point is : These 2 cars have 12 bolts as expected and although there are 2 weeks + in build dates of the cars and over a spread of 13,000+ cars built in that period, there are only 2 days between build dates of axles.  The second point is: This regards my 3rd car, a 307 4speed 10 bolt. My 3E car (5th week of March) has a 10 bolt with build date of 0407 (April 7)! I don't know how much expediting went on back then, but safe to say some component dates can be real close. This car, although started on the Fisher side 3E (only 1 day in 5th week of March, I believe, but could have included 1st week of April), still could not have left plant any earlier than the 7th of April. I will also just note that according to CRG month by month production #'s by vin, This car was almost #5000 into the April Vin dates. So having a cowl tag date is not an absolute as to when component dates cut off. John Z has pointed out that Camaro production was 912 Camaros a day at Norwood (not sure if this applies by this date with Firebird production) . This would mean by Vin. this car was made possibly on 5th production day of April (excluding weekend) which was April 7th (Monday). Could the axle have been delivered and installed to Norwood the same day it was built? The car probably sat another day (8th) till rear was installed.
508  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Check out this Trim Tag on: June 26, 2013, 08:59:12 PM
In my OP I was purposely being sarcastic in noting that being an X66 car (supposedly), it had all  the style trim components. I did not mention the gills as I know on SS's they had them in both configurations. I see too many "over- restored" examples of X66 and X77 that send a red flag that if the car is restored correctly, the person could have saved $$ not adding what was not there originally. I also see a lot of SS's for sale that do not have the power brake pedal medallion or correct BB X-member. If I was buying, I would be dubious in any claim about a car that lacked obvious details mentioned as being the real deal. Most cars for sale on the net seem to lack in authenticity. I don't mean to pick other's cars apart, but that is why I exclusively read and post to this site. Most here, read, know and understand Camaros with a similar passion that I relate to. On my own car(s), I want all facets to be exact and correct, not just for my own satisfaction, but to lend credence that the car is in fact the real deal.  There is a finite segment that care and see it this way. The majority either don't care or refuse to take the time to educate themselves before making false claims in their adds or mis-representations that indicate to me the seller is either ignorant or less than trustworthy in representing their car.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chevrolet-Camaro-SS-1969-Chevrolet-Camaro-SS-Coupe-/161053034796?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item257f82492c   Nice rivet job. Is there such a thing as an X66 that does not have wheel well moldings and bright trim around H. lights? At least it is GM documented?!?...sorry for sarcasm. I guess there are way too many cubic zirconias being passed off as diamonds.
510  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Another ebay claim on: June 12, 2013, 10:46:15 PM
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-CAMARO-INDIANAPOLIS-500-PACE-CAR-396-4-SPEEDS-1-CONCOURSE-s-MATCHING-/290930225655?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item43bccaf1f7  Just had to note that the owner claims that this car was restored to #1 condition by a NCRS restorer. The second pic shows the underside and not only is the crossmember WRONG, but it is in backwards as well. Spare is gray and not a ralley wheel. Wouldn't want this restorer to touch my car.
