John and Mike, thanks for the info, much appreciated. Yes, has one hole in the bracket.

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?
153  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?

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.

OK, thanks for explaining Paul; thought my eyesight was letting me down  Shocked. Will put the word out with fellow Camaro owners down here, to see if anyone knows the car with that VIN.

Paul, can you see the full VIN or the engine code on that single image, to tell that it was a factory V8 car?

Nope, that water pump sold for over $200.00.  Really didn't need it that bad, but they are getting very hard to find..
Agreed! I was watching when it ended, had been around $65 and then at the last minute went up to $203 or thereabouts.

Did the right hand drive Camaro come from the factory with the rear stripes too close together ?
It's an early-built car, from memory September of '68, and there is a thread on this forum somewhere that showed (with photos) a number of early cars had the same rear stripe layout as the previous years did, and also that the stripes stopped further back from the rear window trim than later cars did. I'll see if I can find that thread and post the URL.

Thanks once again guys, great help.

Did you win the auction Eddie?
162  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 302s and CE Blocks on: March 06, 2014, 05:46:04 AM
Although only Flint supplied production 302 blocks, could a 302 that was replaced under warranty be either a Flint or a Tonawanda block, or only Flint? I've re-read the CRG article on warranty engines, which indicates that CE V8 blocks came from both plants, but unsure if one did SB and the other BB blocks. I've never seen a Tonawanda CE small block myself (though by itself that means nothing), but have seen several Tonawanda CE big blocks.
163  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Half a 69 camaro.... on: March 04, 2014, 05:24:20 AM
thats pretty wild. So they said they switch it (back) to a left hand drive? If it was originally delivered there it wouldn't be a factory right hand drive Camaro?
No, that Super Chevy article is 12+ years old, and the car remains RHD to this day (don't think he'll ever change it, as this car has a unique documented history). But as all Camaros were LHD from the factory, this one was converted locally upon importation when new; at the time, all cars here had to be RHD, so there was no other option but to pay for the conversion if you wanted a vehicle that wasn't already here, or wasn't made in factory RHD. It was like that to try and protect the domestic car manufacturing industry, like having huge taxes and tariffs on imported cars. Some conversions done back in the 60's and 70's were better than others, and I have seen some hack jobs over the years that I just wouldn't drive over safety concerns, but this car is not one of those.

Thanks for the updates guys - looks like there's quite a few, relatively speaking, LA cars still out there with at least one missing partial on the original factory sheetmetal.
165  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Half a 69 camaro.... on: March 04, 2014, 05:02:49 AM
Yes, it's an original HO car (if you're into that - sorry Gary, couldn't resist Smiley) and yes, does have a right hand mirror. More on the story, with photos, here:
