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.

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.

my trim rings are original as well with the fingers all the way around.
Thought the originals were the 4-clip design, and dealers were later issued with the all-round design to swap over during service, after the first style started falling off everywhere? Or did this change occur by mid-production?
On the original question, I put several laters of clear around the wheel rim, to limit the inevitable scratches from getting through to the argent silver, or even the primer.

Or they put the Chevelle 'COWL INDUCTION' emblems on the hood instead of the '302'......

Let's see..    TWO Z28s with the same type of replacement HL bulbs?   After only 45 yrs?... and a bit over 20,000 '69 Z28s?    and a small handful of manufacturers who made these bulbs over that time frame??    hmmmmmmm...   quite a coincidence..  Smiley
Gary. Nobody is trying to draw a conclusion based on just 2 cars, simply looking to find out if anyone else had these on their car too. Others are welcome to contribute, preferably positively.

Tim, i uncovered the Z and it has a sealed beam identical to the one you have, the one that does not say "DOT" i will post a pic, the font is the same too. it`s even on the same side of the car, passenger side  Smiley  so maybe it`s factory, hard to say but being the T3`s and Powerbeams say guide most likely not ? food for thought i guess being 2 z28`s have them.
Wow! Thanks very much for checking, and it's really interesting that your passenger side headlight is the same as mine (I assume your car was missing the driver's side light when you got it?). Maybe they are factory after all, possibly even a substitute part for one that had supply or quality issues? I see your car is 03E and mine is 04A, so they could have been fairly close if yours is a VN car too.
Anyone else got this type?

Any idea what the sticker on front bumper, driver's side, was Chick?
233  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z/28 on eBay... What a Car! on: January 12, 2014, 02:14:18 AM
Looks like a nice car, if you can overlook the minor finish issues (like PTB stamps on a Van Nuys car, missing quarter louvers if the rest of the style trim items are factory correct, etc). How big is the loan you're considering?
234  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory eqiiped headlights on: January 11, 2014, 07:41:38 PM
i did`nt notice guide stamped in them. i thought all factory lighting had that stamped on it ?
No, they don't have 'GUIDE' anywhere on them, so perhaps they are non-original replacements? Just trying to determine if anyone else has these same headlights (or has at least seen them) on a first gen Camaro....
235  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Silver Z pictures from 1971 with second owner on: January 11, 2014, 07:38:21 PM
Very cool pictures! I can't imagine how proud he must've been to pose with the car (and probably the girlfriend too), when I think back to my first few cars in my late teens and early 20's, they were only one step away from the junkyard..... but all I could afford at the time.
236  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory eqiiped headlights on: January 11, 2014, 05:13:56 PM
No-one else has the General Electric Sealed Beams, just T3 Guide or GE Power Beams?
237  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: speedo clips and location on: January 10, 2014, 09:44:44 PM
Thanks for confirming, Chick. The 69 AIM calls up 'cement' to be applied to clip and hole for the 2 locations on the firewall, but nothing for the lower clip down by the transmission - seems like that'd be the most likely place for water to get in and be retained, so I'm going to do what you did and seal it up!
238  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: speedo clips and location on: January 10, 2014, 06:02:04 PM
Anyone know if the factory used any kind of sealant around the hole (once the clip was installed)?
239  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory eqiiped headlights on: January 08, 2014, 02:58:08 AM
The font style of the 'USA' is also different on the passenger side headlight, only just spotted that.
240  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory eqiiped headlights on: January 08, 2014, 02:27:49 AM
OK here are the photos I took of the GE sealed beam headlights. I noticed that the driver and passenger side have slightly different markings on the lenses, which is strange..... bear with me, there are a few pictures showing all the details:

Driver's side:


'2D1' at the 12-o'clock position:


'GENERAL ELECTRIC' and 'SEALED BEAM' at the 6-o'clock position:


'USA' and 'DOT' at the 11-o'clock position:


'ZA76' at the 1-o'clock position (there may be an 'S' above the Z but can't be sure):


'GENERAL' and 'SEALED' (same on both headlights):


'ELECTRIC' and 'BEAM' (also same on both headlights):



Now the passenger side headlight:


'2' at the 12-o'clock position (not '2D1' as the driver's side):


'USA' at the 11-o'clock position (missing the 'DOT' that the driver's side has):


'SZA60' at the 1-o'clock position:


What are your thoughts on these - anyone else have headlights like these on their Camaro?
