That Chevelle panel is nothing like the one pictured at the beginning of this thread (see comparison below). To me, it genuinely looks like a 67-69 Camaro panel that has been modified - but who'd go to all that trouble, unless it was some car show special, or a GM prototype......

Why the request?
Reason for request is that I have a non-A/C car with all original sheetmetal, and so far can find no sign whatsoever of a hidden partial stamped near the blower motor hole. The upper cowl hidden partial is present, and it's a nice deep stamping. I recalled reading somewhere a while ago that someone else with a Van Nuys car was also unable to find the second hidden partial, so wondered if any other examples of this were out there. Would appreciate it if you could give an update once you get a chance to check your car.

Salut Christophe, bienvenue a CRG.
As Ed said, if you can get good, crisp photos of the trim tag and relevant drivetrain parts, plenty of very knowledgeable folk here will be able to comment and help you reach a decision on the car.

Thanks for your replies Warren and Jon, much appreciated.

Any members here have a Van Nuys-built '69 with original firewall, that does not have a hidden partial VIN stamp near the heater blower motor hole?

Very interesting back story on that one, credit to Chuck for making known his actions.
202  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 D91 stripe vs 396 Emblems on: February 18, 2014, 03:39:32 PM
Great looking car.  Makes me wish I would have put the DX1 back on my 69.
Agreed, that looks fantastic Rich!

The 05B car was made the same day as my car, and my car is 05A
How did you determine that?
204  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Sinkhole in the Corvette Museum on: February 13, 2014, 03:11:18 AM
or the Hugger Orange Museum.....Relax I'm only kidding
Course you are; can only think of one guy that'd pay to go visit that one Smiley

Very sad to see those unique cars damaged/lost like that.......

Was once told by an old school restorer that using a small blob of toothpaste on the end of your finger works really well in cleaning up old lenses..... I have never put it to the test, and am not sure if this recommendation was for glass or plastic (or both?) lenses. Anyone else heard that?
Will have to look around for some old plastic gauge lens, and give it a try
At the very least, should end up cavity-free and minty fresh Smiley

Mine are brushed face, and have somewhat uneven corners too:
207  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stainless Chambered exhaust on: February 07, 2014, 04:43:56 AM
So if you 'lost' around 7hp with a chambered exhaust and stock exhaust manifolds, would you expect to regain those 7hp with chambered exhaust and long tube headers?
Also, would imagine that in reality, there could be at least a 7hp variance between 2 otherwise identical (drivetrain) cars off the factory assembly line.

Thanks Mark, that confirms it then.

Quiz tomorrow, not multiple choice.
Not sure what you mean by that Everett.

Another member has confirmed via email that 173 is correct for my application, so good to know. Thanks CRG.

Worth noting for the PTB discussion, that JohnZ's Assembly Process article describes the inspection marks as "ink stamps".
(My apologies if this has already been noted elsewhere in this thread, but I didn't spot it if it is).
