Danny, here are some numbers:
Cowl Tag
ST69 12437    NOR234070BDY   
TR711            72 72PNT
01E                X33
Transmission      19N530287   P9A09B
The Vin is 124379N590287
The block MFG Date is A239  and  the casting is 956618
The front number looks to have some very faint small numbers and after a gap has larger that read   V0130DZ
There is the possibility that we misread a digit or two but we had 2 of us to reduce the chance of that.
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Interior replacement on: June 18, 2013, 12:51:56 PM
I am having my 69 RS Z28 restored.  The dash pad and carpet are a must.  I will also do the seat foam.  The guy doing the work says the seat covers will probably not survive the new foam and that is okay by me.  He recommends the door panels as well as he says what I am replacing will make them look dull.  I want to be as original as possible and am planning on seeing what it looks like with the mandatory replacements first.  Any thoughts on value impact as well as any options and overall asthetics will be appreciated.

Thanks, Daniel. I won't reuse the headers as they have some holes in them.  I toyed with going manifolds with chambered exhaust but the rest of the exhaust looks original (it needs to be replaced, though).  I was told that the headers were purchased from the dealer but we found no identifying marks so I do not know.  It does not have power steering and that with the headers has me thinking he was going a little more for performance so chambered probably was not on it.  If I knew the headers were the OTC type I would probably get replacements but if not, I would probably go with your plan.

The man that is repainting it is out of town until next weekend so it will be until then before I can get that info.

Hi, I am new to the group.  I have an X33 1969 RS Z28 that I am having restored.  I am interested in originality, it will not be a hanger queen but driven a less than 400 hundred miles annually, and price is an issue.  About the car.  It is numbers matching engine and transmission.  It has 44,700 miles and I have owned it for over 23 years.  It was built the last week of January 1969.  It will be repainted the original Hugger Orange/Dover White and has the endura bumper.  The firewall still has the assembly line markings as wellThe original starter is being rebuilt and I have the original master cylinder in need of the same.  It does not have power steering and has the base interior. The only non-original items that I am aware of are 2 of the wheels were replaced with painted over chrome rally wheels before I owned the car, a rosewood steering wheel, and the battery (I have the original but dead).  It had headers when I bought it but they are rusted and in need of replacement.  I have them off but have not found any markings to know if they were OTC or after market.  There is no smog equipment. My questions:
1.   Is the value hurt by replacing the entire interior?  The carpet and dash pad are a must as is seat foam. I am of a mind to just replace that and the seat covers as they may not survive but have also heard that it might be best to do it all.  Sadly, I was in the Army and the car spent time in storage some mice got in and soiled the carpet and ate the build sheet (I know I feel bad enough already).  At least that is all they did.
2.  I wanted to go back to the original type exhaust but I don't really want the expense of the smog equipment so am considering headers like it has now. 

Any input would be appreciated.  I like as close to original as possible and certainly do no want to hurt the value but want to keep it affordable. Thanks in advance and I look forward to your comments.  Bryan
