61  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: '68 Oil Fill Tube Breather on: November 15, 2014, 09:14:34 PM
I believe I would be tempted to install a repro '68 Z/SS350 chrome tube and twist on cap - always loved that look. Reasonably priced nowadays, sometimes -

With that VIN, it is early February (02A ?) - not too long after mine, a late January build.

I know that Norwood was stamping above the oil filters by late December - I have a 12/30 L78 block that is above the filter, so I know that some (if not all) were the same way at Norwood.

Font on the stamp looks pretty good, though - hard to tell about the pad deck with all of the scraping that went on around it. Jury's still hung for me -

Steve

Pics of my original inner brackets, plus a spare (since departed for a worthy car). The backs of both bumpers were also black, I assume the base color for the urethane, or maybe painted black after the molding.

Steve

Need a pic. Distance between engine assembly date and the February build for the car seems a little large, but stranger things have happened. Unusual prefix to be sure, if it's really a DZ.

Steve

Inners - my originals are black, from what you can see. The tops got overspray from a repaint in '75 - otherwise they have some black remaining. Try to get a shot of them today -

Outers - black, definitely, either semi flat or semi gloss, difficult to tell by the remnants on my originals. The VE3 was listed on my dealer invoice as " Spc front bumper"; about the only significant option on my X77 -

Apologize for the condition - maybe this will goad me into restoring it (off the car since 1980).

Steve

I've got one of the original design, but I'll have to dig it back out due to the group picture below doesn't isolate the handle with the part numbered pic.

I'll get to it as soon as I can -

Couple of things just aren't quite kosher. I blew the pic of the pad stamp up and turned it around - you get the suggestion there is something stamped to the left of the engine code, heavily, and filled with paint or something to try and mask it. Speaking of stamp, my X77 is an 01C, too - the "0125" date is getting mighty close to the build date of the car (my MSO is 1/28). He never mentions the casting date of the block, either, and no pic. Partial VIN on the trans doesn't look anything like mine, either. Pretty car, though, in spite of the flaws. Wish people would be careful with statements concerning authenticity -

Steve

Finals -

Part numbers - 3935927, 3935928 (-1 and -2 casting suffix)
   "        "      - 3962901, 3962902 (3935927-1, 928-2 casting numbers)

69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 X66 SS Headlight Bezels? on: October 25, 2014, 12:56:43 PM
Hopefully this will help -

Please see the attached pics - I dredged the bezels out of storage this morning. Standard bezels carry a different part number on the box than the chrome ring bezels, but all three have the same casting numbers on the reverse (see all three pics of the part numbers). I have pristine (uncleaned, unrestored) R&L black bezels, chrome ring, for my L78 Cortez 12A SS - plus NOS chromed Argent, and Argent/not chromed bezels for the X77. Unfortunately, the black ones are used, but definitely gonna go back on the car.

Stamp looks legitimate enough, but the reasons for grinding the VIN off are a little disturbing. Whoever ends up with it might at least try to raise them - Five Finger Discount ? Midnight Auto Supply ? Could be anything, including someones half hearted attempt at cloning one. At least somebody wanted the engine to be known as an MO -

But pictured below is the last time I got stranded, my son in law and I were headed to the Good Guys Nostalgia meet in Bowling green KY in 2008 I think it was..  when one of his backed off.. leaving us stranded along I-65.   Fortunately we had chairs in the truck, which made it a bit easier while we waited for the truck/trailer to come get us... and take us back home to get a different vehicle...  Smiley

Looks like somewhere near Ardmore or Lynnville. Glad you made it out in one piece -  Grin
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Part numbers for 67 front and rear glass reveal clips on: October 22, 2014, 11:17:51 PM
You didn't specify vinyl top or not, so I'll give you both:

Windshield, group 10.096: 67-69 Spt. Cpe. 8736586 as required
                                     67 vinyl top 7639528 A.R.
                                     Need lower (sheet metal) clips ? I have those listed also; let me know if you do.

Back glass, group 11.209:  67-68 Spt. Cpe. 8736586 A.R.
                                     67-68 Spt. Cpe (Anode clip) 7741144 A.R.
                                     67 vinyl top 7639528 A.R.

'9's take different clips in some applications, the '67 VT cars were listed separately. Screw in and emergency clips were also listed.

Hope this helps -

Steve
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bumper Jack -- Original color on: October 21, 2014, 11:11:11 PM
Don't laugh, but this one worked for me. I used it on the backsides of the SS1 Rally wheels on my '70 LS5 - it's a close match to "putty gray", which is the recommended color for shocks and jack bodies from several sources. Cap color is pretty close to finished color - cheap enough to risk a can to try, IMO -

Steve
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Very nice Red on Red 69Z on Ebay on: October 19, 2014, 10:57:46 PM
Wow, this one sure seems to be a first class, documented, restored car. What is something like this one worth?  He sure seems confident that it is a very rare 1 of 38 produced in this color combo but I notice Jerry doesn't mention that. If I am reading the POP correctly it looks like it had a M21 originally. Beautiful car!  Maybe a CRG members car?
VIN124379N658389

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-red-1969-camaro-rs-z-28-m-22-concours-macneish-bow-tie-gold-pop-show-car-/331347345618?forcerrptr=true&hash=item4d25d740d2&item=331347345618&pt=US_Cars_Trucks

Pretty car. Jerry's report copy mentioned that the M22 was not original to the car; it was coded for a Dec. '68 built Camaro.

Couple of small items I noticed were out-of-whack with the glowing presentation, but minor compared to the overall detailing of the car. Wish mine looked so good -

75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 772 fans and unstamped fans on: October 14, 2014, 10:24:14 PM
I guess my unstamped fan for the BB is likely O.K. - now I've got to go dig it out and determine if it's a Hayes or a Switzer, and the pitch.
It definitely could be. This one is original to my 69 SS396 (no stamps on the blades):

Definitely a Switzer fan clutch - looks identical to the '68 Z clutch, except I'm unsure about the bolt circle. Surprised it's not an Eaton - early '69 build date ?

Steve
