Hawk, link to pic of 16k mile original l78 69:!/arone.restoration/photos/a.314452995410366.1073741836.312607635594902/314453325410333/?type=3&theater
I have understood for some time that rounded is correct, but not sure were I read that. There is much posted in various sites I am sure you have found. Looks like the car in link has round. Should have asked when you were down here, don't think I have anymore round though.
79  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 396/325 alternator lower rear spacer question on: February 04, 2015, 06:59:48 PM
Does anyone know what the correct spacer looks like? The one l have bolts to the back of the alternator. Wondering if its the right one?
Car is a 1969 ss 396/325 no ac

A#1: Yes, Here is a link :  and I need the brace myself #11. spacer=#14.
A#2: No, Spacer does NOT bolt to back of alternator, only the small block and 6 cyl. bolt to back of alt. on 69's.

Phillips on Rt. is correct. Other one looks like #14 - 3420666. of course, they may have used whatever they had when building your console and all miy consoles are 69's
81  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Camaro Vin124679N589834 what engine/badges, need help to decide on: February 02, 2015, 12:06:58 PM
To start, Your car could NOT be a SS Big Block car with an X11, It could be an SS 350 car though. It also could have been a COPO Big Block, but with that VIN, it is doubtful, even though it is in a time span of COPO builds. I won't elaborate anymore at this time. You need to read this:
and then you will know more of what to look for. There are so many clues, but with so much done to your car, it would be difficult as those clues may be gone now. Only a small % of X11 cars are SS's, so what you ask may never be known and the probability is not in your favor. After some reading, you will know where to look for clues,such as a "muncie hole" in firewall or 'exhaust hanger" on L. rear frame rail. Just saying, you will have to do your homework before anymore can be said about your car except it looks to have been done well. You did say,"you wanted to educate yourself"? That is my best advice.

Dude, you are posting in the wrong section. This should be in the Decode section. This section is only to find missing drivetrain components and match up with known cars. There is so so much already posted and on the site itself to help document what you have. Do some reading please and you would have to post detailed pics of engine bay and other areas for any meaningful discerning of what you have. All that can be detarmined from what you provide is you have a January 3rd week  car from Norwood v8 convert. originally LeMans blue with ivory/Black std. interior with a white top and style trim. You will have to provide much more info to determine what you have.

Thanks Dave. We live for old pics and the "good ole days". You must have had a good job while in school. When I was a Junior in H.S., I was not able to get anything even close to that. It sure was a nice looking ride. I had to laugh at the description of "fur on the door panels and dash...disco style." It sure brings back memories of some crazy stuff we all saw and did, back in the day.

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}.

Reeeeal Nice, Alex! I am a fan of O. Gold...and with Dlxe. Black interior, Blk. top, no spoilers and RS, IMO, a Righteous Ride, for sure!

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.
88  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."


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?
89  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: casting date to assembly gap on: January 28, 2015, 10:59:25 AM
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,
