Great photos. Wonder why the front license plate was mounted on the driver's side bumper and not on the factory plate frame.....

Wouldn’t the “K” date on the heads be November?

Heads are Dec. 68. The pad stamp - V0725DZ - is clear as a bell. The filter boss stamp is a little tougher: that 260 could be 268 or 288...very indistinct stamping. Pad does not give any indication of block having been decked.

Neither block nor heads is correct for this car. It is a June car - delivery date of June 16 according to NCRS files. That's why I posted on the Orphan site.

1969 - Orphans / 69 #124379N523153 Have pictures and first registration
« Last post by GLS on January 24, 2020, 08:25:49 PM »
In 1968 I bought a new 69 Camaro RS 327/210 hp coupe with std 3 speed on floor and drove it 80K miles only to trade it for a family car.  I still possess the original 1968 temporary registration card and the 1974-75 registration for it.   I have pictures of the car in July, 1969 also.  I have tried to find the car but no luck.

VIN is:  124379N523153

Originality / Re: Steering Coupler Nuts
« Last post by Mike S on January 24, 2020, 08:19:19 PM »
 On my 05B NOR 67 w/manual steering, the nuts, washers and bolts were unquestionably phosphate.
I will check my 04B LOS 67 with/PS later today.
The repro nuts have a slight radius along the top and bottom and originals are more square. Very easy to spot the difference.

General Discussion / Re: 69 Camaro Convertible

Well, I miss ALL of the ones I had to sell. I've owned a TON of cars over the years (Camaros, Novas, Chevelles, Corvettes...), but these three were very special.

The 1955 190SL was a very early build (the 518th car built) and was originally owned by Count Bernadotte of Sweden. He purchased the car as a wedding present for his daughter! I wrote to him when I first got it and he was nice enough to reply that he "only drove it a few times, and thought the car was very beautiful, but very thirsty"!

The 1955 Nomad was very rare because it had a lot of factory options, including factory air conditioning. In 1955, that one option alone cost almost $600 (which added another 30 percent to the total price tag) and only a few hundred cars came with it.

The 1969 Corvair was also very rare because 1969 was the final year of the Corvair and only 521 convertibles were built. It also came with the optional 140HP engine and 4 speed.

Originality / Steering Coupler Nuts
« Last post by Tinkerr on January 24, 2020, 08:07:14 PM »
I cleaned up a original steering coupler for a 1968 Camaro, however the nuts and lock washers were missing. I've seen the parts vendors selling replacements in what I believe is gold cadmium plating, zinc plating or a combination of both. What is correct? Thank Paul
