Danny, as the oil smells of gas, just wondering if the fuel pump diaphragm might have perished - especially if you've fired the car up recently on modern gas - and could be filling the oil pan. There was a recent thread on TC where a finned valve cover shattered due to a buildup of fuel vapor.......

Victor, you might give this guy a call, he doesn't have any current listings for your dealer, but something may come up:

From my observations of cars still wearing original-issue plates, dealers in states that required a front and a rear plate had 2 frame designs. The front plate frame had the dealer name at the top, and the city/location at the bottom. The rear plate had it reversed, city above and dealer name below.
Of course, this doesn't mean that all dealers did it the same way, but that's what I've noticed so far.

Danny the yellow markings on the subframe is the date code, there was a thread on this subject here or at TC so I'll see if I can find & post the link. But from memory, the date codes pictured in that thread were on 69s and located on the drivers side where the bumper bracket attached.

Great car Danny, very pleased you got it! And if I were you, I'd put a ring on your girl's finger, she deserves it.

Looks like maybe Van Nuys had a little problem with the TT rivet and build date on more than just this car. Here is another one. VIN 124379L516579
The VN/LOS tags generally have the first digit at least partially obscured by the rivet, at least on 69s. That one looks like someone prised the edge of the rivet aside to check if it was 01B or 11B.

Started appearing during mid-late production Norwood cars, IIRC. PM sent.

Predates your car by 30+ years, but here's a picture of the dealership c.1935.......

Yes you can see that's a '1' partly obscured by the trim tag rivet.

Welcome Michael, sounds like a nice car. Are you able to post a picture of the numbers on the rear seat bulkhead?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Reveal Moulding Scuff Mark on: July 08, 2014, 08:07:40 AM
IIRC, they were flash-chromed stainless. You can polish out scratches and imperfections using progressively finer grit, although the polished finish will have a different appearance to the original chrome. How big is the scuffed area?
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: ring and pinion date code on: July 05, 2014, 10:45:51 PM
Not sure on pinions, but the ring gear usually has part number, ratio (xx yy), and date code (m/mm, yy).
Here's an example from chevellestuff.net:

Ed, I'm sorry you have reached that decision, this forum will not be the same without your knowledgeable and considered opinion. I hope that in time you will return, but until then, thank you and take care.
