46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Length of J-bolt for spare in trunk on: June 14, 2014, 05:07:48 AM
Interesting, the one pictured did look quite short. Assuming you use the jack base, and then the special curved wingnut, to secure the spare, wonder if that'd run out of length? I didn't mention bolt length for space saver spare because I thought that was only an option with 14" wheels, is that correct? I know the coupes and convertibles used different bolts due to the position of the spare in the trunk, maybe the 'vert has the shorter one?

I'd be in for 2 gray cables (assuming of course that you'd be happy to post the to Australia at my cost?).
Steve, I'd still be interested in 2 gray cables and 2 sets of mounting bolts, if you're happy to ship to Australia. Just let me know total and your PayPal email details by PM. Interested in a couple of the special washers too, if you end up getting them made.
(And before anyone points out only 1 cable is required per car, I have an original cable but want a couple of spares while they're available).

I would. Sent you a PM from T.C. an CRG. I need the bolt and cable in black. PM sent.
Gary, the original 69 cable I have is gray, I thought the black was 67 and maybe 68 too?

Great, thanks for the pictures. Much appreciated.

Could someone with a 69 Z please confirm the finish, correct overall length, and thread length, of the original factory J-bolt hook that is used to hold down the 15" spare in the trunk?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Well I hope it's not a member here, but they have removed the RS grille badge in the new ebay ad pics.

Looks like the person who just bought it is a flipper:

Ue, no worries and hope it was of some use!

Very nice photos Steve. I like the fact that the last photo, showing the Joe Chamberlain car, also has the Terry Allen car in the background.
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 11, 2014, 05:13:47 AM
Ue, it's not in the best condition, but you may be interested in this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/360306775272
If so, better be quick as it has a couple of watchers and a few offers been made.
Note that it won't quite fit a standard size Aus plate, but depending what state you're in, you can get standard US-sized plates, NSW (where I am) being one of them. Otherwise just a cool bit of relevant period memorabilia for your shed/workshop wall.

EDIT: did some searching. Found a thread regarding a car that was sold new from that dealership, link HERE. Couple of the photos show 2 different addresses, which look (as best I can tell) like:
Corner S Riverside & Barnett, Medford OR
and
227 E 9th PO Box Medford OR
Can't find anything current under that dealer name, although there is still a dealer on S Riverside - Dollar Buick GMC.
Also note that on the 1980 paperwork via the link above, the dealer code is 19-108, which is different from the 19-107 on your NCRS Report; seems the dealer codes could change over the years, so would imagine sometime between when your car sold and 1980 it was changed from 107 to 108.

How did that process differ at Van Nuys John?

Eldon, I'm not familiar with what is/has been going on within the NCRS at a wider level, but do know from Roy's comments here and elsewhere that the amount of time involved in cataloging and sorting all the microfiche data for the Shipper Reports into searchable records is so extensive, especially given the Nova/Camaro/Chevelle records cover many final assembly plants, in comparison to Corvette records.
Would imagine it's possible that the fee barely covers the NCRS team's costs.

Here's a good previous thread on the same subject:

You can use the service that NCRS offers via www.chevymuscledocs.com
Certain VINs may be missing, but NCRS refunds the $50 fee if your car's details cannot be found.
Be aware that the dealer provided is the dealer the car was shipped to from the factory. In most cases, this is also going to be the selling dealer, but there is always a chance that dealers traded stock.
Without solid authentic documentation, or verified drivetrain stampings, no way to be sure what engine the car had from the factory.
Your badges could've been added by a PO.
