Based on the tag info, it's either an L48 or an L30, as you're probably aware; However, the engine block is a 327 application from a '68 Camaro, assembled at Norwood not LA - so not original to your car. If the suffix code is 'ME', it's originally a '68 327/210hp engine; 'EE' would be an L30 327/275hp, but the photo looks more like 'ME' on my screen. Engine pad stamp shows a Flint block assembled November 27, 1967 with a partial VIN assigned to a Norwood Camaro assembled in December 1967.

Tag looks consistent with VN-assembled cars, including mine.

Very cool car and thread!

Looks like a nice car, although it's a pity about the repaint and the incorrectly-done rear stripes.
440  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Non dripper valve cover questions. on: May 05, 2013, 04:07:05 PM
Not sure about how much the reskinning costs, but maybe a previous owner gave your valve covers a buff/polish? I don't think reskinned covers would detract from an otherwise unrestored car, JMHO, in fact pretty sure that i read somewhere that JohnZ's were reskinned too. If you go down that path, Jerry M is the go-to guy.

Ed, thanks very much for posting all the details of these cars - makes for fascinating reading!
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 ralley sport x code ? on: April 29, 2013, 03:50:03 AM
Can you post your trim tag details? No Van Nuys (VN or LOS on trim tag) cars had X codes, but later Norwood (NOR) cars did. So if the car you're looking at is an early Norwood car, or a Van Nuys car, it won't have an X code.
Later Norwood cars with X tags could only be an RS if X11, X22 or X33.
Plenty of other clues to car possibly being an RS, like stamped backup light holes in lower tailpan, firewall piercings, etc - see the CRG 'Option Identification' section. BUT don't take it for granted that the car is a factory RS just because it may have some of these features....

444  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 25, 2013, 05:36:58 PM
I'm hearing carbs can be dated past engine build date? Is that correct?
Back on page 1, William and JohnZ confirmed that engines were hot-tested using natural gas, and carbs were installed on the vehicle assembly line, so maybe it was possible for the carb date to be (slightly) later than the engine assembly date. However, surely that would only be possible if the engine was assembled more than a couple of weeks before the car? If so, a later carb than engine would probably be the exception rather than the norm, especially considering the supply chain lead time. Interesting to hear opinions on that one.

No...it got sniped out from under me at the last second. Man that is upsetting.
That's a PITA. Hopefully another one will show up soon.
446  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: help on a 69' camaro Z28 on: April 24, 2013, 06:10:21 PM
I'm always wary of auctions or ads that show general photos of the car, without any close-ups of the stampings and casting #s, which are all-important when considering buying a "real" Z28.
447  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 24, 2013, 04:49:19 AM
Gary, I saw that carb sold for $776; were you the high bidder?
448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Front license plate bracket question. on: April 23, 2013, 02:13:32 AM
Is it likely that GM used more than one supplier for these brackets, especially for LA cars? I have a NOS front bracket with the GM stickers and AAc, but the rear bracket (def. original to the car) has the GM part # stamped on it, but no AAC...... I saw the eBay auction that people have referred to, and I went out in the dark with a flashlight to check my brackets... no AAc on the rear though  Sad
449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: TO: CRG members What year Camaro(s) do each of us own? on: April 17, 2013, 12:35:08 AM
I think jerry would be one of the few who owns all three years, although I don't think I have ever seen any mention of a 69...? anyone know if he has one in his stable?
If you look here http://www.camaros.org/aboutcrg.shtml#Members it says that Jerry has:
1967 Z28
1968 Z28 (two)
"OLD RELIABLE" NHRA 1968 Z28 race car
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: my 69 Z being restored on: April 15, 2013, 04:25:04 PM
Oh no, not again.....
yep the paid know all there is to know about Z/28s experts screwed up and still will not admit their mistake. i bet i was driving and autocrossing Z/28 before these experts came on the scene.
The thread at Team Camaro only recently got unlocked, at the specific request of the current owner of your old car, on condition that the color issue was left in the past and thus allowing the thread to move forward as a build thread. Reviving the discussion on another forum brought about my comment, nothing more.
Does Brad know about this new thread?
