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).

Yes, it was - to Howard Elliott Motors in Hamilton, Ontario.
Thanks John!
Gary - they were all Flint engines.
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Headlight Switch on: January 25, 2014, 06:27:02 AM
I have 2 headlight switches, one has 175 and the other has 173 on it. Can't say which one was originally on the car, which is a non-RS with factory console gauges. Research here indicates that 1995173 is correct for this application, but the AIM doesn't appear to call up this with RPO U17. The AIM does however specify different part numbers for console/non-console RS cars under RPO Z22. The earliest documentation I could find 1995173 in is the 1972 P&A catalog.
I'm going to use the 173 switch, based on research and advice here, but can anyone confirm if it is an assembly line correct part #?
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 Barn Find?? on: January 25, 2014, 03:31:38 AM
Must have been hot in that barn, because the rear stripes shrunk! I call BS on this one
Well to be fair, the seller does say it had one repaint in 1981, which explains the incorrect rear stripe layout.
But I think I smell what you're calling on this one, at least on the story.
217  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rosewood Wheel on Ebay on: January 24, 2014, 02:51:39 AM
Other than the shallower dish, was there any other difference between the early 1969 model year N34 walnut (pre-rosewood) wheel, and the 1967-8 version?
218  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z/28 on eBay... What a Car! on: January 23, 2014, 07:14:13 PM
So in your opinion do you think it is a $88k car?
Personally, yes. Fantastic looking car. That said, and meaning no disrespect to the current owner or restorer (James has done an incredible job), I find it perplexing that so much effort has been spent in meticulously replicating all the original factory finishes, including all the paint runs, coverage issues and variations observed on true survivors, and yet they used a BC/CC paint system.
Perhaps this is due to state environmental regulations preventing lacquer use?
219  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rosewood Wheel on Ebay on: January 23, 2014, 07:02:53 PM
John, was your car originally Canadian-delivered?
220  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: photos of my 69 build, on: January 23, 2014, 06:53:05 PM
You wouldn't have known except for stripping it down
May not have realized the full extent of issues, but have another look at the front of the roof above the windshield trim in picture #1 of this thread for a hint of what lay beneath.....
221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z/28 on eBay... What a Car! on: January 23, 2014, 04:35:29 AM
So, no PTB stamp on Van Nuys cars? I learn something new on here every day!  Grin
Correct, but if you want to verify it yourself, it is stated in JohnZ's article on the first-gen assembly process, located HERE.
The relevant quotation is "followed by a final inspection (at Norwood, but not Van Nuys, "P", "T", and "B" ink stamps were applied to the body for Paint, Trim, and Body inspection OK), and the body was shipped up the ramp to Chevrolet. "
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: January 23, 2014, 04:32:38 AM
I'd be in for 2 gray cables (assuming of course that you'd be happy to post the to Australia at my cost?).
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: photos of my 69 build, on: January 23, 2014, 04:29:42 AM
Kerr, I admire you for persevering with this build, you certainly seem to have kept your humor despite how the car turned out to be....... hang in there, the good folks here will be able to offer advice and encouragement. Plenty of good threads over at Team Camaro too, for motivation and neat ideas! Good luck
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rosewood Wheel on Ebay on: January 22, 2014, 06:23:43 AM
It does look very dark, but I suspect it's just the lighting when the pictures were taken. May also explain why the grain is hard to make out, as you noted.
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: January 18, 2014, 05:32:09 AM
I see no evidence that my original seats in my late '69 production car ever had them.. ie. no holes in the seat covering for the pivot pin.
They were only fitted to the passenger side bucket seat, but feature in the Fisher Body Manual (see Fig. 15-47) for all 'F' and 'Z' body styles, with bucket seats. Can you be sure it's the original seat cover? Cables snapped over time and were junked, hence why they're not often seen nowadays.
