16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Firewall Wiring Gutter on: April 08, 2015, 10:45:58 PM
What was the length of the original plastic wiring gutter that attaches to the firewall? I have 2, not sure which (or even if either) is correct for an 04A of 1969 Coupe. One measures 12", the other is just over 13" (both are slightly bowed, hence the approximate measurement). They have the correct end profile, so confident both are GM.

After the movie became popular, a number of people offered a body styling kit to transform a standard coupe into a 'lookalike' but as far as I know (being a GM guy!) it wasn't available from the factory.

Darrell it does look similar to the Falcon XB in Mad Max( or the Road Warrior), except for the fact that the XB came out pretty much stock like that, it had to have taken a lot of time and money to get that 67 to loo that way, I would think.
Our Aussie XB Coupe was a pretty cool car (for a blue oval product) but took a lot of modifications, some subtle and some not, to make the Mad Max car. The nose of the movie car reminds me of a Monza for some reason......
Here's a stock-ish GT351, I believe that quite a few have been brought over there by US fans:

Gary, very early days but from the data so far, the NOR cars have trapezoidal masts with date stamped rivets, and the LA cars have square masts with the date stamp on the mast itself. Very interested to see if this is backed up by other owners, but we need many many more contributors.

Thanks for adding your data Paul and Boston14, I'll update the list shortly.

Can you show a pix of that stamping on the mast, Joe??
Gary, it's from a different LA car, but the second picture at the start of this thread is an '8J' date stamp on a square mast.

Great, thanks Joe! I'll address that in the next update.

Los 1968 02E square nothing on base 8B
Joe, for the 68 LOS car is the date code of 8B on the rivet or on the square mast?
Thanks!
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: alternator date vs build date on: April 02, 2015, 05:30:03 PM
Kurt out of interest, does that particular car with the 9C24 alt also have other engine bolt-ons dated close to the car's build date too, or is there a spread of dates? Is it also a NOR car?
27  Site Comments / Discussion / Site Comments/Discussion / Nice 4WD Camaros! on: April 01, 2015, 01:17:09 AM
Just noticed the new pictures of the 4WD Camaros on the home page! Not that I'd convert a road car myself, but if someone else already did it, that's the coolest 4WD if you have to have one.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67-69 Bumper Jack Design on: April 01, 2015, 01:13:57 AM
Thanks Joe!
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: ebay seller joparts on: March 31, 2015, 09:48:40 PM
Mike does the seller have a phone number in the ebay listing? If not, you should be able to get their contact details including phone number from ebay, especially as you now have an order with them. IMHO, there's no excuse to ignore questions from potential buyers, looking after the customer is business rule #1 (well, if you want to stay in business anyway) but some ebayers seem to be good at dumbing down their computer skills...... never a problem listing items for sale, but won't respond to Q's.
All the same, a good feedback rating should give you confidence, benefit of the doubt and all that. If you pay through PP or with credit card, you should be able to get a refund if it does turn out to be problematic.
