Great, thanks again as always John! Now I'll have to try and decipher the crayon markings.

Kurt, what's your opinion on the engine stamp?
VIN: 124379L528742
Paul
Yes, I'd like to hear Kurt's opinion on that one; the VIN is the closest I've yet seen to my own LA car's.

Interesting! I was cleaning up a Flint CE block recently and noticed yellow grease pencil marks on one side (which I have left undisturbed); Would the same process as JohnZ described have applied equally to a CE assembly as a production engine?

Tim,
Are those dried paint runs at the lowest points I see?
Mike
Mike, those dark areas are just local wet spots; it had been raining before I took the tank outside to take the picture, and the bottom edge got damp when I put it down to turn over. There is a couple of minor paint runs, but they don't show up in the picture.

Door panels have ink date stamps on the inside of the panels
Here's an example, this one from an August of 1969 car:

I parted out an 01B of 1969 Los Angeles car late last year and the underside of the gas tank is painted black; will take and post some pictures tomorrow.
Here's a picture of that tank, you can see where there is no paint where the tank straps were. This is not undercoating. The tank was original to the car:

Yep, they do seem to be unnecessarily strict in SA on things that really shouldn't matter....

Matt, whereabouts in Aus are you?

My 11C big block AC car does not have the vin at the ac hole. Does have the cowl top one.
Thanks! Is it a VN/LOS or NOR car?
146  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 12-bolt on: March 19, 2014, 01:08:34 AM
John and Mike, thanks for the info, much appreciated. Yes, has one hole in the bracket.
147  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 12-bolt on: March 18, 2014, 04:40:57 PM
Thanks Kelley. I figured a 3.31 with a 302 would be a dog to drive, so less likely. Although this is purely a matter of speculation, does anyone know what the "standard" diff ratios were with the L35 and L48?
148  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 1967 12-bolt on: March 18, 2014, 04:44:29 AM
Have come across a mono-leaf 12-bolt with the following details:
Cast date L66 (December 6, 1966)
Axle code QL1229G (3.31 ratio, non-posi, December 29 assembly)
It has the radius rod bracket on the passenger side.
Now I should point out, am not familiar with 67's, but a bit of research indicates this would've been fitted to either an SS (L35, L48 or L78) or a Z/28.
Without a corresponding car, obviously no way to say for sure which of the above it actually was from, but based on the original ratio (3.31 open), could any of the above RPOs be ruled out, or deemed less likely than others?

One of your cars Paul?

You can also use your VIN and the VIN-month ending numbers, along with the production rate and production days of the month and estimate down to the day or so that your car was built...
But remembering that the production week does not necessarily align with the calendar week.
